Integrative
Health Coaching

Health coaching provides support for you to identify your personal health goals and create a success-oriented plan for establishing new, healthier habits.

What is a Health Coach?

A Health Coach can be compared to a personal trainer, except the focus is on your whole self, and you create the roadmap for change. The coach supports you by exploring what is most important to you in your life and health. By connecting a desire for change to your life values and vision of optimal health, motivation increases. Your coach helps you identify obstacles to create strategies for moving toward your goals one step at a time as well as monitoring your progress and holding you accountable to your commitments.

Your First Session

We encourage all of our Integrative Life Members to have at least one Integrative Health Coaching session. In this “micro-session,” we move through an abbreviated health coaching process by exploring what your optimal health would look and feel like, what values are important to you, and more. This “check in” is not driven by anyone’s agenda other than your own. For those who want to go deeper into the process, a full health coaching cycle lasts three to six months. Following the introductory session are several one hour appointments then bi-weekly thirty-minute follow ups until the desired goal has been reached.
