FOR PHYSICIANS AND MEDICAL PRACTITIONERS
Do your patients need more support than you have time to provide?

Your Time is Valuable, Let's Partner Together to Make a Difference.

Your Time is Valuable, Let's Partner Together to Make a Difference.
  • 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?

  • With ever-increasing demands on an MD's time, there's precious little time available to do collaborative patient education.

  • 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 Where I Come In!

As a Certified Health Coach, my job is to coach people through the lifestyle changes needed to eliminate chronic fatigue, improve their sleep quality, and develop healthier lifestyle habits.

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.

Why Refer Your Patients to a Health and Wellness Coach?
  • Improved health outcomes for your patients.
  • You can rest assured that your recommendations are being communicated in a way that your patients can understand and adhere to.
  • You'll be empowering your patients to improve their own health through nutrition and lifestyle change.
  • Increase your available time and satisfaction, knowing that the education and coaching component of your patients' wellness strategy has been taken care of.
  • You can outsource the time-consuming tasks of patient support, motivation, and education.
  • Increase your own revenue potential, by freeing up your available time for more visits.

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.

Working collaboratively with patients on health care decisions can improve lifestyle choices and prompt behavior change. The physician can delegate the personalized planning task to a team member (a health coach) who engages with patients (and their families) who have chronic conditions or complex health needs. Research shows that health coaching has a significant positive impact on patient health. Having a health coach as part of the team may help the practice meet quality metrics, improve patient satisfaction and behavior change, and free up physician time."

How Does Coaching Work?

How Does Coaching Work?

 

  • I work one-to-one with clients, either over the phone or through video conferencing, to coach them on healthy lifestyle changes, so they can overcome any barriers standing in their way.
  • I help guide clients through the overall plan you have recommended, and work with them to create detailed, step-by-step action plans.
  • I meet with clients on a regular basis to provide accountability and constant support so that they can make effective progress toward their goals.
  • My sessions with clients are 60 minutes long, providing ample time for personalized attention and support. I provide chat support between sessions.
  • I help each of my clients create individualized health goals, tailored to fit with their lifestyles, challenges, and identified health needs.
  • I help my clients achieve their health goals, so they can return to you, their physician, with improved markers; lowered lipid levels, improved blood pressure readings, higher energy levels, and improved mood.

Learn More About My Programs

I offer a variety of health coaching services including self-paced coaching programs, group coaching, and private (one-on-one) coaching.

Who is a Good Candidate for Referral?

I typically work with women who struggle with chronic fatigue, who are under a lot of stress, and who are trying to juggle the demands of their busy lifestyle. 

The ideal candidate is highly motivated to make changes to her lifestyle, but needs guidance and support to implement healthy changes.

Once you make the referral, I'll get in touch with your patient directly to discuss their options.
