"The Health Coach is the person who is the expert in health behavior change"*
Welcome to Greenstone Integrative Health Coaching! Home to my health coach practice, training and consulting services.
As an Integrative Health Coach I help people realize their health goals. As a trainer and consultant on health coaching I train people to be effective health coaches. I create health coach curriculum and training materials as well as advise on health coaching initiatives.
Most of us can agree that we are in the midst of a national - indeed global - health care crisis. Many of us suffer from chronic disease that can be alleviated or prevented through lifestyle change. Many of us die prematurely because of disease that can be prevented.
Most of us also know that the lifestyle changes we need to make to live healthier, happier, lives means changing ourselves - envisioning what we need to change, and finding the motivation and resources to make and maintain change.
We also know change is hard.
Health coaching makes change easier. It helps people take back control of their lives, empowering them to make the changes they want for better health and well-being. Health coaching can take many forms and I believe that the changes we need to make to turn this health crisis around requires the use of health coaching in multiple ways - in health care settings, workplace health initiatives, public health programs and education at the national as well as local level.
