Frequently Asked Questions
01. What is coaching?
Coaching is used in many areas of our lives. The most common areas include athletics, music/vocal coaches, and business coaches. Health coaching is a process of self-discovery that allows you to find barriers to success that have kept you from achieving your goals. It can be weight loss, lifting your grandchildren, embracing empty nesting, or anything that effects your mind, body, or spirit. Health coaching allows you the space to make positive change, engage in action steps, and experience the accountability to establish new habits to achieve YOUR GOALS. It only takes one step, are you ready to invest in yourself?
02. What will my coaching sessions look like, can we meet in person and not just on Zoom?

The ideal scenario is a deep dive session to establish connection and ensure the fit is right.
