Health & Wellness Coaching
Health & Wellness Coaching
In order to provide the highest standard of professional health and wellness coaching services, in which the coaching agenda belongs solely to the client as is the professional standard of practice in health and wellness coaching, I do not accept payment through health insurance companies. On request, I am glad to provide a client with a billing statement that they can submit to their health insurance company for consideration of payment. Most health insurance companies are now covering some health coaching services and the American Medical Association has assigned service codes for health and wellness coaching services.
Health Savings Accounts are an excellent idea for maximizing effective use of your health and wellness dollars. Check with your HSA provider to see if they cover health and wellness coaching, mindfulness training, and lifestyle medicine services. Mindfulness training and my lifestyle medicine services may be covered under patient education services.
Health and Wellness Coaching is Available in Individual Sessions or Small Group Sessions of Four to Six People
Group Health Coaching is typically provided on a shared health condition such as a Diabetes or Cardiovascular Disease Group.
All clients receive a copy of Duke Integrative Medicine Center's Personalized Health Plan Manual (164 pages)
Access to Guided Audio Recordings of Mindfulness Practice Recordings

Health and Wellness coaches are partners in the small and large transformations that clients experience. You are the expert in your own body and health & wellness. You know what your personal vision is for how you choose to live your life. Your Health & Wellness Coach is an expert in behavior change. Your Health Coaching is based deeply on your personal vision for how you see yourself living your life and the personal values you hold for yourself.
"It is estimated that 75% of all healthcare costs in the United States directly stems from preventable chronic health conditions (e.g. type 2 diabetes, hypertension, obesity etc.)" The goal of lifestyle medicine is to empower each client to find their own personal inner expertise and motivation to make lifestyle changes of their own choice and at their own pace.
"Coaching is a vehicle for helping people to achieve a higher level of well-being and performance in life and work, particularly when change is hard. Coaching is a growth-promoting relationship that elicits autonomous motivation, increases the capacity to change, and facilitates a change process through visioning, goal setting, and accountability, which at its best leads to sustainable change for the good."
- Coaching Psychology Manual, Moore, et al.
