  • 3. What is the difference between physical therapy and health coaching?
    There is a difference between an "expert" approach (physical therapy evaluation and treatment) and a "coach" approach (Health and Wellness Coaching). "Expert" Approach I have been trained and have worked for many years as a physical therapist so you can consider me an "expert" in this field. I have a skill set and knowledge that can be beneficial to you for wellness or to help you with a specific injury/pain. I assess your issue, give you advice, recommend changes that you need to make and provide treatment. This approach can be very effective for wellness, injuries or pain. "Coach" Approach The "coach" approach used in Health and Wellness Coaching involves a more collaborative, client-centered approach. The coach and client are partners and work together to maximize behavioral change toward the goals that are important to the client. The coach encourages personal responsibility, reflective thinking, problem solving, self-discovery and encourages self-efficacy (confidence in your ability to achieve your goals). This approach can be very effective in making daily habit changes and sustaining these changes.
  • 4. I am not sure that I want to talk about everything in my life.
    You are in charge of what you decide to talk about in our sessions. Please know that whatever you share with me will be confidential. I am a trained medical professional, and it is a safe place to share. There are ethics and HIPAA laws that I abide by to ensure your confidentiality and safety.
  • 2. What is a Nationally Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach?
    Coaches who are Nationally Board Certified pass an extensive National Board Certification Exam through the National Board of Medical Examiners.
  • 5. Where do the Health and Wellness Coaching sessions take place? Where do the physical therapy sessions take place? When are they offered?
    Health Coaching: The sessions may be held virtually (through Zoom), a phone conversation or in-person (In-person sessions may have an additional cost depending on your location). I prefer online or in-person because it seems to create better conversations and connections. However, there may be sessions when a phone call works better for you. The frequency of the sessions are based on your preferences and the types of plans available. Physical Therapy: I come to you for in-person sessions at your office, gym, home etc. or it can be done virtually (through Zoom). The frequency of your sessions will be determined based on your needs after I complete the evaluation. We will discuss this ahead of time before you commit to any further treatment. I will not waste your valuable time with exercises that you already know or that you can do on your own. Health Coaching or Physical Therapy: Monday through Thursday: 10:00am to 7:00pm Friday: 10:00am to 4:00pm Saturday: 9:00am to12:00pm Closed on Sunday. *Customizable appointments available except on Sunday.
  • 1. Do I have to be a Christian for your coaching or physical therapy?
    No, I welcome clients with any faith or non-faith based frame of reference. I work with people from many different cultures, races, faiths and lifestyles. However, I specialize in the Christian faith perspective if you are interested in this type of encouragement.
