Empowered Health Coaching/Consulting

 

You are motivated. You want to feel better, stronger, and more resilient. You can with the right support and resources. 

You don’t need to struggle with a plan that was designed for someone else. An individualized health consult considers your medical history, your goals, your lifestyle and preferences. Recommendations are individualized to your needs.

Consults are single sessions designed to provide an expert opinion. We provide education and options for moving closer to your best health.

Consults can be followed by ongoing health coaching to support your efforts, assess and adjust the action plan to best meet your needs. This may include guidance and support in a variety of forms, depending on your goals and priorities:

  • Create your dream team that helps you optimize health and fitness
  • Set realistic goals that you can achieve in the short-term so that you can celebrate your successes and build confidence
  • Adjust your plan so that you can continue to progress toward long-term goals
  • Feel empowered to make informed decisions about your health
  • Develop a plan for set-backs to promote resilience
  • Customize an exercise/movement program for your needs and goals
  • Discover movement that feels good!
  • Progress your strength, stability and endurance skillfully to minimize flare-ups or a boom/bust cycle that sets you back
  • Explore techniques that prime your body for recovery, repair and resilience: breathing and mindfulness practices; cultivating joy and sense of purpose; vagus nerve stimulation
  • Identify holistic support strategies that have been found to increase anti-inflammatory mechanisms: gratitude practice; journaling; yoga therapy or mindful movement; diet/nutrition
  • Navigate a challenging healthcare system to find the support you need
  • Be heard, seen and validated in your concerns about your health
  • Befriend your body: learn how to work with your body and interpret its signals as important messages that indicate underlying needs

Please note that Online Health Coaching/Consultation is an out-of-pocket expense that is not reimbursable by insurance. Eliminating a 3rd party payer gives us freedom to focus on what you need, rather than what your insurance will pay for. This is a wellness service that is not regulated by state practice acts. We can go outside of the box of traditional care to co-create a plan that works for you.

*If you are seeking a diagnosis of hypermobility, please note that I review the diagnostic criteria for hypermobile spectrum disorders/hypermobile EDS with my clients to determine if they may be eligible for this diagnosis. hEDS diagnosis requires that other medical conditions be ruled out, so it is advised that this portion of the diagnostic process be completed by an MD. 

Coming soon:

Testimonials

Excellent speaker with a nice balance of lecture, lab, and shared case scenarios.

-Julie D

Catherine has a very effective style, and is open to questions. She is very knowledgable, with good visuals, hands-on instruction, and example exercises. Great course! Thank you!

-Chris V

Catherine kept the material fun to learn throughout the whole day! She is an impressive presenter! The whole course was well organized and had great handouts.

– Anna L

Catherine is very engaging, passionate about getting her message across, and has a good sense of humor. Her course was fun and useful.

-MR

I took a course from you a couple years ago about using pilates/yoga with geriatric patients. You presented the material in a smooth, understandable, and engaging way. I was just getting into yoga at the time, and you helped spur me onward into that wonderful realm. I am currently going over, again, the workbook from that course. Just wanted you to know that you helped to re-energize an old physical therapist’s practice of his profession, and continue to influence in a very positive way the outcomes of all my patient interactions. I offer you my sincere gratitude.

– Stan

Very clear, inspirational and motivational. Passionate about her subject. Great teacher and course!

-Beth B

Catherine is an energetic, bright, and passionate facilitator. She makes class fun and enjoyable!

“This was a great course, I think all therapists should attend. It is time for more focused attention to incontinence (and associated fall risk) in SNF/LTC and outpatient populations. I am so grateful I was able to attend and will be able to work this into our current rehab programs. “

This instructor is great! I will be taking more courses with her. She has the ability to communicate information in an interesting manner. I think this is the best instructor I have ever taken a (continuing education) class with!
