What does working with you look like?
There is no one answer for this because I take a very individualized approach. I believe we are all unique individuals, so my approach molds to you versus you molding to me. I use a combination of 1:1 sessions along with email/ text messages between sessions. In addition to that I provide optional tools and resources that can be utilized between sessions as well.
How much is this going to cost?
I offer single sessions or combo packages as well as some group coaching packages so there is an option for multiple price points.
Do you take insurance?
In general, health coaching is yet to be considered a covered service across the board by all insurance providers, but some providers will allow for reimbursement of Health Coach services using FSA/HSA benefits.
If your health insurance covers Health Coaching I am happy to work with your insurance provider.
