What can I expect in my sessions?

An empowering partnership where evidence-based interventions are used to create lasting behavioral change. With a coach, you are the expert in your life. Together we work to evoke and explore what your version of health looks like and create a personalized path to get there.


Initial self-discovery session: 90 minutes

In-depth exploration of your vision for your optimal health and the personal values underlying your vision.  This session helps you tap into your deepest motivation for making health-related changes and is foundational to a successful health coaching experience.


Follow-Up: 45 minutes

These sessions follow the initial session and are designed to help you become clear about what a healthy life means to you and how to turn your plans and ideas into reality. During each session,  we will focus on what you want and need to feel a deep connection and motivation to attain your desired outcomes. We will explore the skills and strengths you already have as well as the values and vision that bring meaning to your goals. In turn, you will learn more about yourself and how you work best.

Coaching sessions usually take place via phone or video conferencing, but can also be conducted in person.  The initial session runs for about 90 minutes. Typically sessions are spaced about two weeks apart, though the first two sessions are often scheduled closer together to jumpstart the process and get you on the path to achieving your goals. Support is also available between sessions via email/chat.

It takes a minimum of three months to develop a new habit that becomes self-sustaining, so we ask for a commitment of at least three to four months, or seven sessions, for you to experience the impact of our coaching work.  A longer period of coaching, such as six months, may be better for clients with significant challenges.
Self-assessment needs to be completed prior to the first session.
