My philosophy

About Me.png

Following a fulfilling career in healthcare as an inspirational and influential leader, motivational speaker, and clinical educator, I found my truest passion to be one of coaching — helping to bring about lasting lifestyle changes and improve physical and emotional wellbeing. I combine my skills and experience to partner with you in your personal wellness journey. I believe a health coach functions as a supportive guide, a source of accountability, and a skilled expert to maximize your progress and success.

 

So much about health coaching is increasing motivation and building upon your strengths to encourage self-awareness. This may include managing stress, navigating life transitions, striving for work life balance, diet, exercise, and improving sleep. As a healthcare worker, I have seen the effects of stress manifest itself

in various ways, such as negative thought patterns, failing relationships, illness, and uncertain life transitions. My ability to listen deeply in a safe, non-judgmental way, while asking powerful questions to understand your needs, will result in discovering sustainable strategies to enhance resilience, avoid burnout, and navigate desired behavioral change. Together we will explore your unique path of action by creating achievable goals towards living your healthiest and happiest life.
