Wellness coaching is a combination of life coaching, fitness coaching, organic living, corporate wellness, sound nutrition, stress and energy management. Someone can be very fit but still unwell, if they have high levels of stress and suffer from insomnia. A wellness coach can fill in the gaps. I offer one more dimension to wellness coaching by adding in the holistic element. We are spiritual beings. If life is approached from the highest level, you will achieve the highest level of being.
Wellness coaching helps clients to:
- set goals
- reduce stress
- assess health concerns
- prepare for life changing events like surgery
- live in the present moment — make conscious choices for health, success, & happiness
- actively change behaviors like smoking, poor diet choices, and negative thinking
- offers support for those facing health challenges who may be isolated
- stay inspired long term — become in touch with internal motivators
- develop strong personal ties, and a nurturing relationship with the world at large
- be a source of accountability ~ this is one of the best ways lasting change occurs
- become self-empowered & self-actualized
What is Fitness Coaching?*
I design a fitness plan based on your individual needs, personality, and lifestyle:
-We determine the best physical activities for you
-We set achievable and rewarding fitness goals
-I help you to stay on track & stay motivated
-We work you through any resistances
-I help you find the inspiration and reason you wish to exercise and get and/or stay fit: do it for YOU!

CHANGE – Change is possible. You can change for good! I can coach you on how to make lasting lifestyle changes. How? With proven methods based on science and coaching psychology.
I know what it is like to try to change. I had to change in order to manage a chronic condition (CFS). I had to give up chocolate (too stimulating for my condition), make sleep a priority, and learn how to eat super well, in order to diminish my symptoms. I know how hard it can seem to change habits you’ve had for years and years. And yet, I also know that change is possible, and not as hard as you think.
It’s about taking it slow, setting realistic goals, having support (wellness coaching and social support), and focusing on the positive no matter what occurs along the way. You can do this, you can change. There are skills and strengths you already have, plus the backing of proven scientific methods to help you along your way. You are not in this alone, and CHANGE is inevitable. Change is on your side. You can CHANGE FOR GOOD and I can help!
I am a CERTIFIED WELLNESS COACH, and I offer Individual and Group Wellness Coaching, Stress and Energy Management classes, and Conscious Living Techniques.
Wellness Coaching is the facilitation of peak physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social, and environmental health. A coach doesn’t just point to a mountain and tell you to climb it in order to reach the top. They climb it with you.
Coaching helps you to build the bridge between your dream or goal and the final result. Coaching helps you to break down the walls of old habits that no longer serve you. A coach is a source of empowerment, motivation, encouragement, inspiration, and education. A coach is your best ally and a source of accountability.
Wellness Coaching is a field that specializes in proven methods of how people change for good. You can do this! I am here to help guide you along the way and never give up on you. Change is not only possible, it is inevitable!
Change – You Can Do It
YOU can change the very thing you think you cannot change.
I help people change what they think they cannot change: their health habits, seemingly glued in cement by their deeply held beliefs about themselves.
Whether it’s emotional eating to hide from your authentic feelings, smoking to dampen your true voice, not moving because you’re afraid who might be looking, or any deeply ingrained counterproductive health habit you secretly harbor and only do when it’s you alone in your house or your car…I can help you change what you think you cannot change.
First, I’ve been there myself. I know what’s it like to feel stuck, even feel like you are a SLAVE to a health habit you don’t even like. I know what’s it like to feel like you may never be able to break free of an addictive health habit because you’ve tried a thousand times, but it keeps resurfacing. I also know what it’s like to be FREE of enslaving health habits that make you feel so bad, even ashamed.
How do you break free?
First, you need distance, because more often than not, we are too close to our pain to see it clearly. We can FEEL it, but we can’t seem to break free because it has become the familiar circle we orbit, and it has seem to become the only path in sight. How do you find other paths? You ask for help, guidance, get a map, create a map (which are your goals, ideals, wellness vision, etc) and start rewiring your brain. Yes, your brain.
Don’t get me wrong, people change their health habits ALL THE TIME. Many even do it on their own. I can even teach you self-coaching techniques to help yourself, which is really what people are doing who are successful.
There are MANY techniques we can use to change your health habits for good.
But the two most tried and true techniques are setting short-term goals, and by focusing on the positive – focusing on what’s going RIGHT, not what’s going wrong (your current health habit to be precise).
That which you focus on takes focus…and determines the way your brain and neural pathways will be programmed for that day, that week, that month, that year, and, ultimately, your lifetime.
What do you want the path you’re walking on to look like? Is is currently filled with weeds – the obstacles of your undesirable health habits?
If you desire to CHANGE and have the motivation and courage, and BELIEF IN YOURSELF, then you are the kind of client with whom I work.
Even if you don’t believe in yourself 100%, but you have FAITH that there really is a way to change your damaging health habits for good, then you are the kind of person who would benefit from working with me.
I am very PASSIONATE about wellness coaching, and I know it works, from personal experience. This is not rocket science. But the methods I use have been proven to work over an over for thousands upon thousands of people.
This is your LIFE. How much do you desire to feel good and feel free from health habits that keep you going in circles and feeling unhealthy?
What VALUE do you place on FEELING GOOD? How much do you value and RESPECT yourself, your body, and this one PRECIOUS LIFE you have been given to live?
If you can find what MOTIVATES you to change, give me a call. This is all you need to get started. What moves you to change?
You could be motivated out of FEAR, yes. But that won’t get you very far.
But if you can find a REASON to change that is based on LOVE, INSPIRATION, MOTIVATION, etc. you can and will change for good.
Remember, you will not be in this alone. That is the whole point of coaching. I can guide you down this new path, that YOU have chosen to get and stay on…
Together, we can change the very thing that has caused you so much pain for so long.
That which you shine a light on is illuminated in light, and diminished in fear.
Reach out to me today, and let’s shine a light on your FEAR.
It’s not really that scary. It’s just there, in the dark, in your way, blocking your true path and effortless health.
If you are ready, I am here, on the other path, ready to go….
