We are a comprehensive wholistic health and wellness coaching practice. We get to the root of your health concern to better your overall wellness. We are not a traditional medical practice and do not treat medical conditions. We do not claim to treat, cure, or prevent any disease. If you have a medical issue, please see your PCP. If you are having an emergency, please call 911.
We are a cash-pay only practice. We do not accept insurance as payment. Therefore, we are able to spend more time with you rather than allocating time to these administrative tasks. Fees for services are due when your visit request has been confirmed and are nonrefundable.
Naturopathy takes a holistic approach that emphasizes prevention and the self-healing process. Rather than just suppressing symptoms, naturopathic doctors work to identify underlying causes of illness, and develop personalized treatment plans to address them. Many naturopathic doctors serve as coaches due to varying state licensing policies.
Health, the “natural state” of one’s body, is disturbed by obstacles that lead to disease. The first step in returning to health is to remove the entities that disturb health such as: poor diet, digestive disturbances, inappropriate and chronic stress levels, and individual disharmony. Naturopathic doctors construct a healthy regimen based on an individual’s “obstacles to health” to change and improve the terrain in which the disharmony developed.
The International Coaching Federation (ICF) defines coaching as partnering in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires a person to maximize their personal and professional potential. The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership. When you work with a coach, you set out on a path to greater personal and professional fulfillment.
Coaching is an interactive experience where we discover your goals and your passions and use them to help you travel down a path to the life you want. Coaching is a tool to assist you become the you that you desire to be.
Health Coaching is different from seeing a medical doctor, nurse practitioner, nutritionist, dietician, etc. in that those are licensed specialties intended to assess, diagnose, and treat medical conditions, which is out of the scope of practice for coaching.
Life Coaching is different from seeing a psychiatrist, psychologist, therapist, counsellor, etc. in that those are licensed specialties intended to assess, diagnose, and treat mental health conditions, which is out of the scope of practice for coaching.
Having a previously diagnosed medical condition that is stable does not preclude you from using coaching to meet health goals, independent of your diagnosis, while you are being managed by your medical professional.

100%! What happens in our sessions stays in our sessions. The only exception is when conditions arise where confidentiality can no longer be maintained. This may be in instances or cases of “illegal activity, pursuant to valid court order or subpoena; imminent or likely risk of danger to self or to others” (ICF Code of Ethics)
The time that your coaching process will take depends on the complexity of your goals and your commitment and openness to your process.
