Starting this fall CNHP will offer one on one health coaching and group classes.
What is Health Coaching?
Health coaches fill a special niche within the health care team. Coaches help fill the gap between the providers recommendations and implementing them into day-to-day life.
The real work is done outside of the medical office. The health coach mentors, inspires, supports, empowers, and collaborates with clients to set goals and then coaches clients through obstacles, barriers, mindset, and habits that affect significant lifestyle change. Health coaches work closely with their clients to achieve their specific vision of health and wellness. Health coaches are the experts of lifestyle change.

She received her RN at Quinnipiac University in their Accelerated Nursing Program.
