Individual Coaching

As your Health Coach, I promise to be your personal advocate

for true health. 

Our first focus will be REAL food!

You will have my 100% support and guidance the entire way.


How does Individual Coaching work? 

Individual coaching is available either by in-person session or by phone sessions.  Skype sessions are available for international communication.  Each session is 50 minutes in length, with the initial session being 80 minutes.  Generally, I see or talk to my clients on a bi-weekly basis, but this can vary.  Depending on the situation, sometimes it's appropriate to hold sessions more or less frequently.  Because everyone is unique, each person travels their journey at a different pace and so appropriate adjustments are made along the way. 

 

What takes place in our sessions?

Sessions are spent discussing topics, your progress, providing recommendations and forming action plans together.  Therefore, both education aspects AND application tools are discussed.  Each session builds upon the previous session, creating a gradual and gentle transition. 

 

How long would we work together?

Because sessions build upon the previous session and between-session communication via email is a part of working together, an "a la carte" session is just not my style!  (I do allow exceptions in some cases.)  I value individualized attention and thorough sessions.   I work with my clients in a series of sessions, usually ranging between 4 and 16, with a 2 session minimum.   During the first session, together we would get a feel for how many sessions would be a comfortable place to start.  We then will have a plan and a vision in sight of how we will work together.  Working together in a series of sessions, the transition and changes are more likely to be sustainable.  That's what we need – something that works and sticks!  You may choose to schedule sessions every week, every 2 weeks or even every 3 weeks, whatever is doable for you and appropriate for your situation and needs.  Again, I generally recommend bi-weekly sessions.  

 

When can sessions be scheduled?

Sessions will be scheduled based upon both of our availabilities. I hold day-time and evening hours as well as limited Saturday hours.  It's best to schedule out in order to secure the time/day that works best for you.  Please see here for my location and hours.

 

What all is included and what is my investment?    

Your investment for each set of TWO in-person sessions is $215 (see rate for 1 initial consultation and pay-in-full discounts at the bottom of this page) and includes:

  • TWO 50-minute sessions (The initial session will be 90 minutes.)

Payment Options & Details

If you choose to pay for each set of 2 sessions instead of paying in full, payment for the next set of 2 sessions is due immediately following the previous session.  For example, if we decide to start off by working together for 8 sessions, the payment for the first set of 2 sessions is due prior to the 1st session.  The next payment (which covers the 3rd and 4th session) is due at the end of the 2nd session.  This is a policy due to the included email support between sessions.  In this manner, there is continuous on-going support without a break.  This maintains focus and encourages staying on track.  *Payment for the first set of 2 sessions is due 48 hours prior to the first scheduled appointment. 

In-Person Clients:  Payments may be made by check or credit card in my office or by paypal below.  *Payment for the first set of in-person sessions is required via check or paypal 48 hours prior to the 1st session. 

Phone Clients:  Payments may be made by paypal below or check.*  Checks and paypal payments must be received 48 hours prior to sessions. 

* Sessions must be started within 30 days of purchase. 

* Refunds will not be issued.



Does my practice accept insurance?

I do not participate with insurance.  In my opinion, insurance companies are generally in the business of prescriptions, surgeries and procedures – usually not with enabling people to truly learn about nutrition and REAL food, to obtain the tools they need to heal and be well with optimal health.  I do not believe that answers to true sustainable health exist in the current conventional mainstream medical approach.  Because my approach is unique from the mainstream health beliefs (which most practitioners that participate with insurance companies follow), my clients gladly invest in their health and pay out-of-pocket for my services.  Some are able to use their HSA (Health Spending Account).  It always depends on the particular plan but upon request, I can always provide a detailed receipt with which you may attempt to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
