Integrative Holistic Health Coaching (in person, via phone, or video chat on line) facilitates and empowers your ability to unlock your unlimited healing potential. The techniques I use include: applying motivational interviewing and behavioral change theory; positive inquiry; active listening with feedback; accountability; mirror work; affirmations; physical, mental and emotional detoxification; mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR); and cultivating gratitude, self love & happiness.
If you have health challenges, such as diabetes, obesity, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, or cancer, I can work with you and your professional medical team to integrate lifestyle medicine, complimentary, and/or alternative medicine modalities into your current health care plans.
I can also help you with other health challenges, such as: reducing stress, quitting smoking, quiting addictive sugary soda drinks, improving diet, loosing weight, becoming more active, letting go of emotional baggage, improving sleep, and getting a new, more positive outlook on life.
Additionally, I am available to teach Hatha Yoga, Mindfulness Meditation, and plant-based nutrition.
If you are a health care provider, or a health coach seeking continuing education, I also teach health coaching. My health coaching course includes the following:
▪Fundamentals of Motivational Interviewing (MI)
▪Transtheoretical Model of Behavioral Change
▪Empowering the patient
▪Shared goal-setting with accountability
▪MI Treatment Integrity (MITI) behaviors.
