Could one conversation open the door to changing your life?
- Do you feel stuck in moving forward with making decisions or implementing behaviors that contribute to your health?
- Are you always finding excuses why it’s easier not to make healthy meals or stay active?
- Are you lacking the motivation to take charge of healthy behaviors?
Wellness coaching is a process that facilitates healthy sustainable behavior change by drawing on your own inner wisdom and values. Many times we just need someone to help us hear our own expert voice and what is getting in the way of taking action.
As a Registered Dietitian, Exercise Physiologist and Member of the International Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT), an organization that supports a client-directed approach for resolving ambivalence with respect to behavior change. I will work with you in a collaborative way to help find the lifestyle path that works best for your needs. We will briefly discuss what your goals are ahead of time, and then during the first session goals, direction and a plan can be mapped out depending on your situation.
Sessions can be done in person, on the phone or via Zoom.
It is devotion to the balance of the day that by the end of it you can turn off the light and say to yourself, “today I took the time to move my body, to do something that mattered in the world and restore myself physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually.”
Nutrition Coaching and Counseling: Initial Appointment
An initial appointment is 1.5 hours. I ask that you bring a copy of any blood work you have gotten in the last year, a list of medications, and bottles of any supplements or vitamins you are taking. We will collaboratively come up with your goals, review your medical history, measure body fat (optional) and design a program that meets your goals.
Follow-up appointments are 45 minutes. We review what’s happened since the first session and work together on how to move forward, what is working, and what is getting in the way of change. Multiple topics can be addressed including diet balance, mindful eating, medical concerns, etc.
I do not take insurance but can provide a superbill for insurance coverage. Most insurance companies do not cover medical nutrition therapy, but a few companies may cover a percentage of your visit.
