Are you living a life where you feel like you want more when it comes to your health and well-being?

Do you want to make some changes to the way you are living, but have trouble getting started or keeping it going?

Do you feel stuck, overwhelmed, or unsure how to move forward?

Do you feel like life is too busy or out of control leaving you with little to no time to take care of yourself?

Do you like the sound of having a coach serving as a creative and thoughtful partner along for the journey?


If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you certainly are not alone.


With so many work and home responsibilities competing for our time and attention it may seem impossible to figure out how to fit in taking care of yourself. 


As a Health & Wellness Coach I help clients include wellness and self-care in their busy lives. 

What is Health and Wellness Coaching?

A Health and Wellness Coach is not going to tell you what to do. Instead we help you discover your own path to better well-being by working on where you'd like to be, to un-cover what is holding you back and strategizing how to overcome barriers and challenges. Health Coaches help you discover your values and priorities, your deep motivators, your strengths and abilities, your needs and desires, and help you plan and set goals. And we're there to encourage and help hold you accountable. 


This approach leads to sustainable and lasting change and ultimately leads to increased personal responsibility for your health and well-being. You'll have more confidence, self-regulation, self-awareness, resiliency, optimism, and tools and strategies to fall back on.  

There are several ways to work with me: Individual Health Coaching, Lifestyle Medicine Coaching, Group / Wellness Clubs, and Corporate Health Coaching.​

Health & Wellness Coaching



Individual Health Coaching

There are many factors that can influence your personal well-being. Wellness means different things to different people, and given that many areas of our life and well-being are intrinsically intertwined, your coaching journey may include any combination of the following:

  • Diet and Nutrition,

  • Activity and Exercise,

  • Stress Management,

  • Mindset, Attitude and Outlook,

  • Mindfulness,

  • Sleep Quality,

  • Relationships and Social Connections,

  • Body Image, Weight Management,

  • Self-love and Self-compassion,​

  • Work-life Balance and Satisfaction,

  • Income and Money Management,

  • Sifting through chaos and clutter,

  • Spirituality.


Should we work together? Let's find out. Shoot me an email and let's find a time to chat. I offer a free 30-minute session so we can get to know each other.

Email me when you decide you're ready to move forward and I will send you a welcome packet to get started.


Lifestyle Medicine Coaching

Lifestyle Medicine (LM) focuses on the prevention and treatment of disease & disorders such as heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, some cancers, diabetes, depression, etc. caused by lifestyle factors (nutrition, physical inactivity, sleep quality, chronic stress, alcohol & tobacco use, etc.) As a Lifestyle Medicine Coach I help educate, equip and empower clients to make positive lifestyle changes.


Would you like to address chronic disease in a way that can potentially prevent, treat and reverse it? Ask your doctor if they would recommend making lifestyle changes and working with a Lifestyle Medicine Coach to help initiate those changes. As a Lifestyle Medicine Coach I operate the same as a Health Coach, but the focus in on the lifestyle behaviors affecting your health as determined by your doctor. 


Should we work together? Let's find out. Shoot me an email and let's find a time to chat. I offer a free 30-minute session so we can get to know each other.

Once you decide you're ready to move forward,  the first step is to email me and I will send you a welcome packet to get started. 


Group Health Coaching

Do you seek a sense of belonging in a safe, nurturing, inspiring and supportive group?  Are you feeling like your connections are uninspiring, underwhelming and unsatisfying? Are you ready to put in the work and make lifestyle changes to help improve your health and well-being? Consider joining a Breakaway Wellness Club.

We are social animals and tend to thrive when we have a strong sense of community. However, today there seems to be less opportunity to socially connect in meaningful ways: to be heard, to feel supported, to be held accountable, etc.​


In a group setting we select a focus topic for each session. You will get coached towards your personal goals within that topic. Group coaching offers the following:


  • Cost-effective way to be health coached

  • Benefit of group support, learning, and inspiration from other members’ experiences

  • Feeling of a sense of belonging, community, and connection with others in a meaningful way

  • Increased accountability and responsibility to follow through

  • Creative brainstorming of possibilities

  • Willingness to try something new in a supportive “let’s try this together” attitude of the group.

  • Being a part of a group that is non-judgmental, ready to listen, and to celebrate and honor each other.


Connect with me if you are interested in joining an existing group or forming your own group in the Portland, Oregon area.



Corporate Health Coaching

Breakaway Coaching offers Health & Wellness Coaching services to Corporate Wellness Programs. Health Coaching is a unique approach to well-being that it puts the employee at the center of their health and wellness. Health Coaching empowers employees to take responsibility for their own well-being and facilitates the adoption of positive and healthy behaviors for the long term. 

There isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution to health and wellness. Providing employees with gym memberships, incentives to work out or health risk assessments provide opportunities to engage in healthy habits, but it typically does not provide the framework and tools they need to make significant long-term behavioral changes.  Health coaches are experts in behavior analysis and help people to make lasting and meaningful changes in how they approach their life.  We help them evaluate everything from what they eat to how they move, and a myriad of other lifestyle behaviors that feed into their wellness equation (sleep quality, stress management, social connections, emotional health, etc.) 

What’s in it for you?

Health Coaching can help:

·    Improve employee morale, engagement and fulfillment

·    Increase retention by reducing burn-out

Health and Wellness Coaching programs include:
