Health Coaching


Health Coaching empowers people to take responsibility for their health and feel their best, by helping clients make behavioral changes that can be maintained over time.  A health coach is a mentor who assists people with making healthy lifestyle choices and achieve their personal wellness goals.  The focus is on the individual needs of the client, working with the challenges and obstacles of daily life.

Clients will discuss positive changes that they would like to see in their lives. We then work together, step by step, to accomplish the positive changes such as – having more energy, feeling great about who they are and the way they look, fitting into clothes they never thought they could, stopping smoking, enjoying their last 20 years, finishing a warrior dash or mud run and the list goes on and on. We look at the four main areas of life – career, exercise, spirituality and relationships. If these are out of balance- it creates a drain on their life energy, leaving them unfulfilled. Most of us try to fill this drain by what we put in our mouths – whether it be a donut, a bag of chips, a cigarette, a 5 dollar coffee drink or an alcoholic beverage – or several.

The problem is that these never fix the energetic drain. With health coaching, the client is able to discover the real cause of the problem and find healthy solutions to take care of it.

In health coaching, we also look at the diet and transition, in a step by step fashion, from the sugary, processed junk foods, fast foods and diet foods to real food and clean water. Real food grows in the ground, on a vine, on a tree or was raised in humane conditions on pasture. These are the foods that heal. Hippocrates said “Let thy food be thy medicine and medicine by thy food”. I don’t believe in using restriction or starvation diets, because every deprivation is followed by a binge. One of the biggest predictors of weight gain is whether you have been on a diet within the past two years. In health coaching, we look at the nutritional content of foods, so that you know which foods you can get the most nutrients for the calories, so you can actually eat without gaining weight.

If you are motivated to take charge of your health and are considering a healthier eating plan but don’t know where to start, contact me at 479-283-6507!
