Wellness & Lifestyle Guidance

Health coaching is a unique methodology that uses visioning, goal setting, and accountability techniques to help you achieve an advanced level of well-being and performance in multiple facets of your life. Coaching is a growth-promoting relationship that initiates autonomous motivation and power to change. My own journey to finding a healthy lifestyle and advanced health coach training have given me insight  into the many challenges of trying to live healthy while still enjoying life's pleasures.

FAQ: How Is Your Program Free?

There is a good chance you are looking for the catch to my free program. Let me tell you that there is not one. After several years of offering my programs at a higher cost, I made the decision in early 2018 to start offering my basic program for free and my advanced programs for only $5 dollars. This change came from a career shift that I made to become a case manager for adults with severe mental illness. However, my love for offering affordable health coaching has not vanished. The most significant difference between the coaching is that the new program is 100% computer-based whereas my original program included weekly 1-hour phone calls.  Coaching over the phone allowed me to instantly guide my clients, and allowed them to ask me any questions they may have immediately. The simplest way to understand how this changes the program is to think of a time when you had to explain to someone over multiple emails something that would have been much easier, faster, and more complete had you been able to speak to them on the phone. But rest assure, my programs are still effective and life changing!  Each week you will still have unlimited access to me via email between sessions, weekly client-tailored education handouts, client action guides, and exclusive access to some of the top health protocols from leading experts.
