FAQ

Frequently asked questions

What can I expect in a coaching session?


You can expect a safe, non-judgemental space to explore old patterns that have gotten in the way of your relationships with others, your work, your financial life and most importantly, your relationship with yourself. Nothing is off limits. Because my approach is holistic, we can work through general health and nutrition as well. Everything is connected. As opposed to therapy, coaching is a way of working in the present and future instead of the past. We look at what we can do together, right now, to start reaching your goals and taking steps to the life you want to be living. Together we will work on establishing your goals, creating strategies to reach them, while I hold you accountable for your success.




How can a wellness life coach help you?


Many ways! I am trained to guide you through a variety of life challenges and to reach your goals. I help you to have healthy relationships with others and yourself. I show you how easy it is to be the great authentic you that you know you are. I work to identify harmful lifetime patterns and help you move beyond them. I empower you to change negative self talk to positive and motivated thoughts. Together, we can work to heal trauma, not by looking to the past, but by looking forward.




What does a wellness life coach do?


A wellness/life coach discusses and works with you about anything that impacts your health, fitness, and general well being.

I work with clients to make positive and lasting changes to their health. I guide clients through the process of creating a vision for their health and well being, developing a healthy mindset and healthy habits, and encouraging them every step of the way until they accomplish their goals.




How often do you meet with your coach?


I like meeting with my clients about twice a month for an hour conversation. Although some people do well with once a week for a half hour session as well, it's really about what you need at that time. I work to accommodate your unique needs and schedule so that you can feel supported, encouraged, and accountable for your well being.




What's the difference between a wellness & life coach and a therapist?


Simply put, a therapist works in the past, and I work in the present and future. We work to take steps right now, towards your goals and vision for your life. A therapist focuses on recovery from old wounds. A life coach focuses on evolving and moving forward towards joy and happiness. Therapists are experts in medical science and diagnosing conditions. Life coaches are experts in developing their client's strengths, talents, and potential. Therapy is geared toward patients in crisis, pain, and suffering. Life coaching is for individuals who have accepted their past, have taken responsibility for their life, and are ready to move fully into their future.




Who could benefit from a wellness & life coach?


Life coaching is for those that are looking to make changes in one or more areas of their life, and to move forward more fully into their most authentic life. It could be for those looking for ideal partners.
Lacking confidence or low self-esteem. Struggling with guilt, grief, or fear. Regularly overwhelmed and stressed. Unsatisfied with your career. Someone who procrastinates, and are unable to make descisions. Board, uninterested, and unmotivated. Going through difficult life changes. Not feeling valued or respected. Searching for a clear vision.




Why does health & wellness matter?


I take a holistic approach to life coaching because everything is connected. In order to live our best life, we need to strive towards a healthy combination of physical, mental, emotional, and social well being. Not only is being physically and emotionally fit essential to decreasing our risk of developing many serious chronic diseases, but it also give us the opportunity to take this life of ours and make the most of it.
