What is a Health Coaching session?
Most people know what to do for better health … It’s HOW to do it that gets challenging.
A health coaching session usually lasts up to one hour; during that time I collect information about you and why you are here. We then formulate together an action or health plan based on your wants, needs, time, life situations, and what feels comfortable and doable for you.
Reasons people would seek a health coach?
- Nutrition! There is a lot of mis information and varying advice. This is because not everyone will benefit from the same foods. A health coach will help you navigate your best foods for health.
- Weight loss
- Improved sleep
- Stress reduction techniques
- Prevention of diseases and illnesses (even if you have the “genes” for it).
- Avoiding chemicals in your daily routine and household
- Establishing a daily routine
- Establishing a daily exercise or practice
- Pain management
- And many other reasons

Health Coaching works on the four pillars of health:
- Food & Nutrition
- Movement & Detoxing
- Stress management skills, destressing
You get these four pillars in your life and the body will heal and correct itself. These lifestyle strategies can help you prevent and resist illness and disease, and may also correct any disease you are currently dealing with. Get the basics of health ~ Our bodies have an amazing capacity to heal themselves!
A Health Coach meets each person where they are and helps them navigate lifestyle changes slowly with ease adapting and adjusting to each persons likes and dislikes.
Through questions, history, culture, background, likes and dislikes I help you learn how to nourish yourself with wholesome foods.
Diet & Nutrition = Food Programs
Confused about what is the best “diet” or way to eat? Low fat/high fat, low carb/high carb, paleo or protein diets, vegetarian, vegan, ayurvedic, raw, gluten free/dairy free . . . and the list of diets go on and on.
In reality there is not one diet that is right for everyone — or every season of the year! Through questions, history, culture, background, likes and dislikes I help you nourish yourself with wholesome foods. The crux of nutrition is avoiding processed foods and sourcing your foods from high quality growers and farms; I will teach how to prepare wholesome foods working with your time frames, no matter what your eating preference.

Aromatherapy – Essential Oils, Herbs, & Plant Medicines
Aromatherapy is not just smelling the oils, though this is lovely. Aromatherapy is using the aromatic molecules the plants produce for medicine. Plants produce these aromatic molecules to protect them from insects, diseases, harsh weather, and any other threat. As it turns out us humans face similar threats and these plant molecules are effective for humans as well 🙂
