FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is a health coach?
A health coach is an expert in the process of health behavior modification. Health coaches work in partnership with their clients to help them enhance personal accountability, set goals and take action to achieve and sustain health-supporting behaviors.
Do health coaches collaborate with healthcare physicians?
Yes. While a health coach should never replace a doctor or other practitioner, working with one can often serve as a bridge between medical recommendations and a patient taking action to create and maintain healthy behaviors.
How does the program work?
During our first meeting clients map health history from birth to present day with the health coach by answering directed questions. Then clients set individual health goals, which are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely. Our next meeting the coach will connect clients to our system in order to monitor wearable devices, communicate daily, track activity, and set custom health trackers. Clients will also meet once a month in office, or for a beach walk, grocery store tour, yoga class or stand up board paddling. Our program is customizable.
What types of clients do you typically work with?
In general, my clients are individuals who are motivated to improve their health. Typical goals include weight loss, healthier eating, increased exercise, or stress reduction. However, each client is unique, and the program is customizable to meet individual goals and monitor health trackers.
