Frequently Asked Questions


What is a Health and Wellness coach?

I am a guide for people who have not prioritized their mental, emotional, or physical wellness and now know that it is time to put themselves first so they can thrive in every aspect of their lives.  I see wellness as an umbrella over all aspects of your life, personal, work, business, and relationships, not just about healthy eating and exercise.

How does coaching work?

During powerful coaching sessions, I listen deeply and encourage you to look within yourself to find answers to your challenges. We work together to identify your goals and break through the elements that are holding you back from reaching them.

Acknowledging that you know yourself best, I won't tell you what you need, but I will help you move through your journey of self-discovery, set and achieve goals, and reach optimum mental, emotional, and physical wellness.

How is coaching different from therapy or counseling?

Coaching concentrates on where you are now and where you want to be, setting realistic goals, identifying and breaking down barriers to your success, and moving you forward in an action-focused way.

Therapy or counseling typically focuses on the 'why' of where you are; the reasons behind your feelings or roadblocks, taking into account past traumas and experiences to help you cope and heal.

What happens in a coaching session?

Coaching sessions are 45 minutes long. We start with a few moments of grounding, and then I will ask you what you would like to focus on in the session. You lead, and I walk beside you as your guide, using techniques that will help you expand your awareness of yourself, uncover obstacles that get in your way, and set achievable action steps for the coming week; step by step, you can achieve your bigger goals with success.

Where do the coaching sessions take place?

I offer Zoom or in-person coaching sessions in my home office in Sammamish. I also offer sessions in nature if you live locally.

How much does a coaching package cost?

The costs vary depending on your time commitment. I ask for a minimum commitment of three months because change doesn't happen overnight. The investment in yourself for twelve 45-minute sessions would cost $1,500, and I am happy to discuss a payment plan if needed.

A one or six-month commitment is also available.

How will I benefit from coaching?

In a nutshell, you will be able to move from a place of being stuck, feeling unfulfilled and frustrated, to realizing your dreams and flourishing in every aspect of your life.

How will I know coaching with you is right for me?

This is a significant investment in yourself; let's ensure it's right. I offer a no-obligation complimentary 30-minute call in which you can tell me where you are now and where you would like to be, sample a few minutes of coaching, and decide if we are the right fit for each other.
