2. Does insurance cover health coaching?
Some insurance covers health coaching. I do not process insurance claims however, I can give you a receipt and you can submit it to your insurance company. Some HSA's will reimburse for health coaching sessions.
3. When do I pay for my Service?
Fees are agreed upon and required up front.
4. How can I pay for my sessions?
I take payment by cash, check and credit card.
5. How long are the sessions?
Most coaching sessions last one hour. There are some exceptions when a client reaches an appropriate time to end the session before the hour is up.
6. How do we meet for health coaching sessions?
We have many options to meet for health coaching, but my favorite is to meet in person! This could mean in my office, in any quiet and confidential space such as a business room or in the outdoors such as a park or a trail. (Yes, we can walk and talk!) Other options include telephone, or virtually on Zoom.
7. What if I need someone in addition to or other than a health coach?
You might decide you would like help from other practitioners as we move through our sessions. I will help you with a direction to search for what you need or can offer referrals. When something is beyond my scope of practice, I will refer you to an appropriate professional. It is very acceptable to have a Health Coach and a Therapist or Psychologist. Just make sure all practitioners are aware you are working with the others.
8. How do I know if Health Coaching is for me?
I offer a free 20 minute consultation with no strings attached. We will determine if health coaching is a good match for you during this time. You are also welcome to contact me with any questions.
9. How many sessions will I need?
This varies. Some people need just a few sessions and some continue to come back weekly, every two weeks or monthly - it is up to the individual to decide what they find valuable for them. We will evaluate session frequency together depending on your needs.
10. Do we have a formal coach/client contract?
Yes. Before we begin our health coaching sessions, we go over what you can expect from me and what I expect from you. A confidentiality agreement is included in this contract and you will receive a Client Bill of Rights so you are clear about our coaching relationship. I am open to any questions or concerns.
