Health and wellness counseling is offered for individuals, families or groups. Sometimes the true obstacles are not about setting the “right” wellness plan or learning new skills. “I know what to do, I just can’t do it” is a common experience for many people struggling to move towards their health related goals or apply lifestyle changes a healthcare provider had recommended. Using psychotherapeutic tools plus the insights gained throughout 10 years of health coaching and education for professionals and families, wellness counseling can help you overcome barriers to optimal health including: impact of trauma, anxiety around body image, hidden shame, impact of sociocultural factors and lack of clarity around the sustainability of changes you have tried to create. Personalized new skills for mental health maintenance and self care can be practiced throughout the counseling journey to reinforce new habits and maximize chances of sustaining the new lifestyle that supports your health goals.
