What is integrative wellness coaching?

Wellness coaching is an empowering and effective way for people to engage in their wellness by collaborating with a professional coach.  Together, client and coach will explore the physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual, and occupational dimensions of life that relate to wellbeing.  The relationship created between the coach and client generates powerful momentum to help facilitate positive behavioral change and improved wellness.  Through the process of coaching, clients have the opportunity to connect the best of who they are to where they want to be in life. Coaching is a supportive way to bridge the gap between "wanting it" and "doing it". 

Self-care as primary care

Self-care is at the heart of health and healing.  It is an active and powerful choice to care for yourself in the same way that you'd care for a dear friend.  At The Center For Intentional Healing, you have the oportunity to explore varoius avenues towards self-care by incorporating mind-body techniques that have been empirically supported as effective for enhancing health and healing.  These empowering techniques may include meditation, guided imagery, and breath work.  Helping one’s self is robustly therapeutic, and it is through active engagement in one’s self-care process that optimal health becomes obtainable.
