Having extra support when you are at the beginning of making changes can be so valuable. Sometimes you can have the best of intentions and really want to change but still be challenged by obstacles in your way. It can be so helpful to have someone with expertise to lean on as you do this important work of improving your health.

Health Coaching provides one-on-one support from a certified coach to help you reach your healthcare and wellness goals.

What are the benefits of health coaching?

At PALM, we have seen remarkable benefits from working with a coach on such goals as taking action on a fitness routine, support around changes to your diet recommended by your physician, or accountability and support to decide where to begin with all of the recommendations you received at your last doctor’s appointment.

Your goals can include the health objectives you created with your medical or wellness provider, as well as your personal goals in the areas of physical and emotional health.

“Health coaching at PALM has absolutely changed my life! I didn’t realize how my negative thought patterns were impeding my ability to change a particular habit I’ve wanted to change for a long time now. In her kind, empathetic way, coach Lara Pennington guided me through the steps of setting a goal for myself and has helped me change my behavior for the better.”
