Many people have become frustrated with the traditional healthcare system, as it often seeks to medicate symptoms with pills instead of identifying the underlying cause of illness. We all know that eating better and exercising more will help us be healthy – if only it were that easy! Health coaching is personalized support to help you reach your health, fitness or other life goals. Many adults have lost weight, improved their overall health, extended their life, and discontinued prescription medications through health coaching and you can, too!
Health coaching is also great for children. Parents seeking alternatives to medication for their children have found health coaching to be a safe and effective way to heal their child, resulting in a healthier, happier child!

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
I am not your traditional counselor, and I like it that way! When working with clients we first look to identify the root cause of distress factoring in the concepts of mind, body, and spirit. I also use a strengths based approach to healing. Sessions are tailored to client need. This means that sessions may take place while on a walk to help increase mood or in a public place to work on social anxiety. While the past is important, I aim to focus on the here and now. I also provide tools to help my clients that they can use after each appointment. The goal of my work is to bring you to a place where you feel confident to tackle any life challenges on your own.

SUBSTANCE ABUSE ASSESSMENTS
Substance abuse assessments are often completed in 1 session and consist of an interview with the client as well as contact with 1-2 other people in the client’s life. Following the assessment session clients will receive a recommendation based on information provided. Clients may choose to follow the recommendation, but you will not be forced into doing so. The assessment can also be sent to treatment facilities for admission. Recommendations for treatment programs may be provided upon request.
Reiki is a Japanese relaxation technique that involves light hand placements to balance the body’s energy and strengthen it’s ability to heal itself. When the body is in a relaxed state it is better able to heal as opposed when the body is in a state of stress and tension. Sessions typically last anywhere from 30-75 minutes depending on client need.
