1.  What is a health coach?

“A wellness authority and supportive mentor who
motivates individuals to cultivate positive health choices.
Health coaches educate and support clients to achieve their
health goals through lifestyle and behavior adjustments.”


“When athletes want a competitive edge, they hire a private coach to mentor their progress. When it comes to your health, using this mindset can also be beneficial. Health coaches are increasingly being hired by corporations to help employees stay healthy and by individuals seeking to improve wellbeing. These coaches offer assistance in managing dietary constraints, and teaching stress reduction methods. In some ways the health coach picks up where your physician left off, helping you to implement wellness strategies suggested after a check-up.” Dr Andrew Weil


2.  Who should sign up for health coaching? 

Health coaching is ideal for individuals looking to improve their health and wellbeing, or someone who has a specific health issue they are looking to improve and heal naturally.


3.  Why is your program 3 months? 

90 days may seem like a long time, but in my experience, this is how long it takes for people to make lasting and sustainable lifestyle changes. You may have heard that it takes 21 days to change a habit. In fact, a study published in the European Journal of Social Psychology found that it took anywhere from 18 to 254 days (almost a year) for people to form a new habit. My 3-month health coaching program is designed to set you up for success way beyond our time together. My focus is to equip you with all the tools and confidence you need to reach your goals, so you no longer need me.


4.  Will I need to change my diet? Do you prescribe a certain diet?

I don’t prescribe anyone a particular diet or food plan, but rather I emphasize a whole food lifestyle. I show you how to step away from processed, sugar, and chemically laden foods and focus on nutrient dense, whole foods that your body will love. I will also share recipes that the whole family will enjoy.


5.  How can I work with you when I am not in the same geographical location as your practice?

Thanks to modern technology, we don’t even have to be in the same place to work together. Sessions can be conducted via phone, Zoom, or Skype, whichever is more convenient for you.


6.  How do I sign up?

If you are interested in working together, schedule a complimentary consultation and let’s chat.


7.  How can I pay for the service?

The initial conversation (30-minutes) is complimentary. After that, payments can be made with cash, or PayPal.


8.  What if I don’t see the results I want?

If you have completed the program in its entirety and followed all of my recommendations and suggestions and don’t see the results you were expecting, I will offer a full refund.


9.  What if I can’t pay the total amount upfront?

Payment installments are available.


10. What if I can’t make a scheduled session?

24 hours advance notice of cancellation is required. We can arrange a make-up session. 


11.  Can I contact you at other times other than our scheduled sessions?

Yes, you have unlimited contact with me during the work week (Mon-Fri) via email. I will respond within 48 hours.

“Tara is the perfect blend of kindness, wisdom and conscientiousness. With true caring and active listening, she asks pertinent and profound questions to get to the heart of what is often keeping me from moving forward with my goals. She is truly able to synthesize what we discuss into logical and action-oriented goals, and her regular and consistent follow-up makes her a genuine partner in accountability. She is open and sharing with her extensive knowledge of holistic health, and I can always count on her for applicable and useful ideas and advice. Tara’s thoroughness and compassion make her a truly gifted coach.”

Jessica D.

“Tara’s strongest attribute is her genuine concern and love for people who touch her life.  Instinctively she senses the imbalances, emotionally and physically, and she thrives on taking great care of those lucky enough to be around her.   Her methods are thorough, precise and organized. Her determination to restore well-being and her self-giving ways are endearing.  Just sit down and chat with her for 1 hour and you will know what I mean.   Combine Tara’s personality with her passion and extraordinary things will happen.”

Linda D.

“Tara is highly knowledgeable about nutrition and has such a big heart for wanting to help others. There is such a beautiful warmth about her.”

Melanie P.

“Tara is number one when it comes to support and accountability, something that in the health care world is almost extinct.  Sometimes it’s hard to make changes on our own and Tara has showed me over the years that she can be that person of trust and with her personal support can help you reach your goals.”

Veronica C.

“I’ve really enjoyed the insight with helping to eat better!  This is the beginning of a lifestyle change.  Tara has helped me look at processed foods differently and be aware of unhealthy things that I put in and on my body. I loved the encouraging emails to stay on track while traveling and what to do on my transition days.  This will be a lifelong change and this is just the beginning.  I couldn’t have completed the changes without the motivation from Tara. I can’t wait to see more results from eating right and exercising. Tara has been my health coach but has become more of a good friend who helps me stay on track. Thanks, Tara!”

Lea C.

“Tara is naturally caring, nurturing and wise. Her support and advice are invaluable.”

Annabel C.

“Thank you for a great detox and all the support along the way.  Well worth it!”

“I agree with Christine, thanks so much for this detox.  You were very supportive and always on hand with suggestions, help and additional useful information. I had been feeling rather sluggish lately but now I feel like I have got my ‘bounce’ back!  Thanks for the experience Tara, you’re a star.  Best wishes,”


“Thank you for your kind & loving support that you gave me. I was keeping a food journal prior to beginning the detox, but NEVER wrote any symptoms I had with food.  Since then, I NOW know which foods to stay away from.

I wasn’t afraid to ask you anything and I loved the answers and feedback that you gave to my questions.  You helped me tremendously!!

Thanks again!! Until next time,”

Tara is very knowledgeable. The detox was a great experience and Tara was a great cheerleader!
I appreciate her support and helping me get back on track!  Thanks!

Tara possesses the magical combination of being someone who is an expert in her field, as well as someone who genuinely wants to help others.

Tara brings authenticity to every interaction she has.  She handles herself with class and care, and is always looking out for others.  As a Health Coach, she is the most enthusiastic supporter of her clients, and they see real results!  It deserves mentioning that she creates the most magnificently mouth-watering recipes that even the most skeptical to “healthy eating” would gladly gobble up.

Tara has a kind demeanor that is evident in each interaction.  She is one of the most thoughtful people I have met, checking up personally with me on a regular basis after my appendix came out.  She does not miss an opportunity to reach out and spread love and joy.
