Jorge Cardenas, RN
Personal health coaching can help you or your child achieve wellness goals! The coach can interact with both child and caregiver to identify specific concerns with health consequences [such as forgetting to turn in homework or drinking too many sugary beverages] and develop strategies for individual success! They use proven methods to facilitate a partnership to achieve healthy, sustainable behavior change. Health coaching draws on the principles of positive behavioral psychology and appreciative inquiry through the practice of motivational interviewing and goal setting. Regular follow-up through office visits, email, or telephone ensures that early changes become sustainable habits.
