The next step in your journey

Chronic illness, pain, and stress are interconnected and go beyond your physical and mental  health; they may also impact your career, relationships, spirituality, and enjoyment of life.  If you're aiming to gain clarity and self knowledge, cultivate self-compassion and build self-confidence, while having support as you build ongoing self-accountability to continue reaching your goals, coaching may may be the key to lasting change. 

Schedule a Meet & Greet to find your FLARE OF HOPE and live your best life with chronic illness, pain, and stress.

Coach Sam

Your ally on your journey to live your best life

I am a certified integrative wellness coach, who specializes in supporting people living with chronic illness, pain, and stress. My personal and professional experience allow me coach on a broad range of topics, addressing the wholeness and uniqueness of you. I also understand the nuances of navigating chronic illnesses, as well as, the health and wellness goals you may wish to develop to better manage your medical condition.


You are unique, which is why I tailor my approach to you. As your coach, I will work with you side-by-side to understand what you want most out of life. We'll work together as you more clearly identify your needs, define goals, all the while addressing the unique obstacles you face. I'll support you in developing creative strategies that align to your values and beliefs so that you can find a path that works best for you. I will ask powerful questions that take us beyond the surface, making way for you to tap into your inspiration and support system to aid you in living your best life.

 

Why hope?

More than a daydreamy feeling

Hope is more than a wish for something to happen. According to the work of C.R. Snyder, former researcher at the University of Kansas, people who exhibit hope demonstrate the ability to set realistic goals, develop a plan to achieve those goals, and believe that they can do it.

As an integrative wellness coach, I support clients in navigating this process so they can make their goals a reality.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is coaching?

Coaching is a creative and collaborative process in which a client and coach work side-by-side to discern the client's personal goals and develop a strategy to achieve them.  The coach also provides accountability and encouragement to empower the client throughout their journey. Coaching is comprehensive and may involve different areas of life, including health, relationships, work, education, and recreation. Integrative health coaching further aids the client by incorporating more specific health goals, while accounting for the wellness of the whole person.

How can I start working with you?

Coaching is a ongoing commitment, so the best place to start is with a complementary Meet & Greet. This will give us a chance to meet, discuss your goals and timeline. It will give you a better idea of whether or not the coaching relationship will meet your needs, and will also give me an opportunity to assess if you are a good fit for my coaching focus and style. If we move forward, great! If we decide not to move forward, that's fine too. I am happy to provide recommendations of other coaches or professional that may better meet your needs.

How should I prepare for our first meeting?

Relax and be prepared to have a friendly conversation. All coaching sessions take place via video chat, so they are easier to fit into your schedule and you can take them from anywhere. We will talk about what brings you to coaching and what you hope to accomplish. It's okay if you haven't worked out the details yet - that's something we can discover together. I will take time to get to know you and understand the unique obstacles you face. Be ready to challenge yourself and try new things!

What results can I expect from coaching?

While there will always be a variance in individual results, emerging research suggests that health and wellness coaching provides measurable and meaningful improvements across multiple areas of life that are sustained long after the coaching agreement ends.
