Coaching services are arranged by appointment only and take place over the phone. While it may seem unusual to be coached over the phone, there are many advantages. Coaching via phone saves travel time and can occur in the location most convenient for you. Research has shown that the most benefit from coaching occurs when there is at least a three month commitment; however, the number of sessions can be packaged to fit your budget and time constraints.
Everything that is discussed in our coaching relationship is completely confidential.
You can arrange the session times and frequency to best fit your needs.
Fees are paid monthly and in advance. Fees are based on the number of pre-arranged private sessions for the month.
An Integrative Health Coaching package includes the following:
A Personalized Health Plan Manual developed by Duke Integrative Medicine ($30 value)
Unlimited email access Monday-Friday
Private coaching sessions of approximately 40 minutes in length
Opportunities for guided meditations, relaxation and breathing exercises during sessions
Access to resources to help you in your journey
"One-Time Session" Service:
It is possible to schedule a one-time coaching session if you feel really stuck and need help immediately. Contact me if you want help brainstorming, finding next steps, clarifying a goal or just someone to listen to you.
"Thirty years ago my older brother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report on birds written that he'd had three months to write. [It] was due the next day. We were out at our family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books on birds, immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead. Then my father sat down beside him, put his arm around my brother's shoulder, and said. ’Bird by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird.‘"
- Bird by Bird, Some Instructions on Writing and Life, by Anne Lamott.
For many people, Integrative Health Coaching is a new term. While it is similar to life coaching or business coaching, the focus is more on the health of the whole person. It takes time to break an unhealthy habit or thought process and form new behaviors that are sustainable and will last a life time. It is my goal to partner with you, support and empower you -while you design your new life. And to help you get unstuck and in a forward moving direction.
Support & Partnership
Please contact me if you have any questions about coaching services and I will be happy to offer what I think I can do to help you. Just like in the quote above when the boy was in tears and stuck on how to write a report on birds - a coach can work with you, "bird by bird" or one-step-at-a-time until you have achieved your health goals. And it is almost always more fun if you have a partner!
