You Asked, We Answer! 
Look below for some of my most commonly asked questions.
  • Is a health coach the same thing as a dietitian or nutritionist?
    Health and Wellness Coaches partner with clients seeking self-directed, lasting changes, aligned with their values, which promote health and wellness and, thereby, enhance wellbeing. In the course of their work health and wellness coaches display unconditional positive regard for their clients and a belief in their capacity for change, and honoring that each client is an expert on his or her life, while ensuring that all interactions are respectful and non-judgmental. A dietician plans nutrition programs and food programs for people. Dieticians can help prevent diseases and obesity problems because they teach people about the role of food in their diet. They usually run food programs in institutions, such as hospitals and schools. As opposed to dietitians, who are qualified to diagnose eating disorders and design diets to treat specific medical conditions, nutritionists deal with general nutritional aims and behaviors. Nutritionists are often employed in schools, hospitals, cafeterias, long-term care facilities, and athletic organizations. By definition a health coach is a supportive mentor and wellness authority helping clients feel their best through food and lifestyle changes by tailoring individualized wellness programs to meet their clients' needs. We talk about nutrition, absolutely! But how we work that through your every day life is much different work than a simple meal plan with macros and calories.
  • Are you board certified?
    Yes! I was certified by the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) in 2020. For more information on what exactly this means, please visit
  • Do you take insurance?
    Health and Wellness Coaches are not allowed to take insurance, but since I am board certified, there are CIP (Classification of Instructional Programs) codes given that may or may not work for reimbursement from your insurance provider. CIP CODES 0591T Health and Well-being Coaching face-to-face; individual, initial assessment 0592T individual, follow-up session, at least 30 minutes 0593T group (two or more individuals), at least 30 minutes You may also be able to use an HSA (Health Savings Account) debit card to pay for your programs online.
  • What is the difference between the Seasonal and DIY Challenge?
    The program is exaclty the same, but the accountability and access to me is the difference. Some are self-starters and can download the program and implement it without any issues. Others need group accounability along with coaching for the two weeks while they make these massive food changes. With the seasonal challenge, you will get: • Private #slack channel where you can message me and our group for the entire 14 days we are going the challenge together • Bonus recipes added based on season • Kick-off call to go over the program packet and get any questions answered • 1:1 follow up session with me after the program ends
  • Why do you offer such savings on your membership?
    Easy! Because I want to help keep you accoutable for your health goals - because you deserve to look and feel your best every day! Most of my past clients do a challenge, go back to hold habits, do a challenge again 3 months later. By including all the seasonal programs in one price, and keeping a membership portal and #slack channel for constant communication, the months in between will keep us in touch and you in check. It's an online group coaching format that has helped many thrive! It's the basis of getting away from crash dieting. And you will learn so much about yourself and the nutrition you need!
