A health and wellness coach is different from other providers you may encounter. A health and wellness coach does not diagnose, treat or prescribe. A coach is a trained professional. They are a partner, someone to support and guide you toward optimal wellbeing.
A coach facilitates and supports you in taking actionable steps toward sustainable growth and change. You are empowered to take ownership and responsibility for your own health and wellness. Services are offered using a de-stigmatizing, uplifting and strengths-based approach. The coach is an advocate, ally and source of inspiration for lifestyle change.

While a health and wellness coach does not diagnose or treat medical conditions, if you choose, with your consent, they can collaborate with your current healthcare team. The coach can support you in following your provider’s recommendations, and help you feel less burdened by your medical condition or overwhelmed by your treatment protocol.
Why should I work with a health and wellness coach at The Functional Medicine Center?
Here at the FxMed Centers, we offer an integrated care model. That means we have the capacity to be a “one stop shop” for your wellness needs. We also have the capacity to collaborate with one another as professionals, to offer you high quality, comprehensive care.
Another important reason is that practically anyone can call themselves a “health coach” and offer services. Yes, really. The industry is not yet regulated by the State like a doctor or therapist is. That said, our health and wellness coaches are not only National Board Certified in health and wellness coaching (NBC-HWC) but has multiple coaching certificates AND is a licensed clinical social worker with over 20 years of experience. She has been working with the Company since 2017, and is a compassionate, empathic and dedicated professional.
Furthermore, private one-on-one or even group health and wellness coaching services can be costly, typically ranging from $125-$250+ per session. Working with our health and wellness coaches will offer a significant cost savings relative to services elsewhere in the community.
All coaching services are offered remotely, at convenient times throughout the week.
