"Do your patients need more support than you have time to provide?"
"Tired of giving advice to your patients ... yet nothing changes?"
"I can help your patients achieve their health goals!"
Physicians are busy, and rarely have time to engage patients in behavior-change action plans.
With ever-increasing demands on an MD's time, there's precious little time available to do collaborative patient education.
Are you frustrated that you don't have enough time to support and educate your patients more closely on healthy habits and behavior change?
Are your patients frustrated because they need more hand-holding and accountability than you have time to give?
As a doctor, your time is a premium. In your patient encounters, you may only have time to make recommendations and outline a plan ... but some of your patients need close support and assistance in actually implementing that plan.
That's exactly where I come in.
As a health coach, my job is to coach people through the lifestyle changes needed to lose weight, implement an exercise regime, improve their sleep, manage stress & be proactive in their pain levels.
I can help your patients ensure they understand the care plan you created for them. I work closely with them, to implement the complex lifestyle changes that are often required to make significant improvements in their health.
I have created a very simple referral system so you can quickly and easily get your patients the personalized support and accountability they need.
I've made it easy for you to refer your patients to me, so they can get started with me right away, and you can have the confidence that they will get the support they deserve.
Research is beginning to show that patient outcomes improve with health coaching.
In fact, the American Medical Association has this to say:
"Health coaching is a team-based approach that helps patients gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to become active participants in their care. The old saying, “Give a man a fish, and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he eats for a lifetime” demonstrates the difference between rescuing a patient and coaching a patient. Patients with chronic conditions need to learn how to fish. Health coaching can be supplemented with health literacy strategies and effective communication techniques, such as ask-tell-ask, teach-back and/or action planning to ensure patient comprehension of their care plans and help them achieve their goals."

I work with busy women that need to lose weight, struggle with autoimmune diseases, or metabolic diseases.
