What is a Health and Wellness Coach?
An ally to help you discover your best self. There isn't any hidden agenda, prescriptive diet plan, or "should-ing" from the coach. We will build a plan tailor made to your needs, health and wellness, and the goals that come along with that. It is a collaborative relationship that mirrors that of a guidance counselor/student relationship.
Who is eligible for Health and Wellness coaching?
If you have changes you'd like to make with your health (may they be suggested by a doctor or out of your own personal interest), coaching will help you figure out how to make those changes in a sustainable way. Within the scope of chronic illness, Rita specializes in coaching Dysautonomia patients.
What are the sessions like?
Sessions are 50 minutes and are done over the phone or in-person at Five Doors Health and Wellness in Cambridge, MA.. The first session will consist of Rita getting to know what your health and wellness currently looks like, and how you envision your optimal health for the future. The session will end with a collaborative experimental goal for the upcoming week.
Who is Rita?
Rita was inspired to become a Health and Wellness coach after she experienced first-hand a change in health that required lots (and lots) of lifestyle adjustments. Knowing that doctors are often times restricted to a fifteen minute appointment, she feels another supplemental role is needed in medical care that explores how to make changes in behavior surrounding health and wellness.
As a Mayo Clinic–trained Health and Wellness coach, Rita will help you tailor-make your health and wellness journey to fit your life. Please note- you won’t catch Rita telling you that you need to eat more broccoli. You can expect her to dig deeper and find out what motivates you as an individual. Progress come from keeping your personal values in mind as small, realistic goals are achieved.
In combination with coaching, Rita became Pilates Mat certified during her years of living in NYC. Her study of skeletal alignment, movement, and muscular balance is especially beneficial to any chronic pain clients!
Rita currently offers coaching over the phone and in-person at Five Doors Health and Wellness in Central Square, MA.
"Rita has a unique combination of skill, sensitivity, presence and humor that makes each session effective and super fun!" - Myra Martinez
