With a Personal Health Coaching Program

you can discover, identify and balance your Primary and Secondary Nutrition habits and needs,  bringing you more energy, greater understanding of what supports good heath for you and greater enjoyment of life. 

There are two kinds of nutrition; Primary food is how we live our lives; career, relationships, spiritual practice, creativity, exercise, etc… If that side is not nourishing us, then Secondary Nutrition, which is actually the food we eat (and pretty confusing these days), is likely to be compromised -we may be eating to fill a hole or are too stressed to assimilate the nutrients of a carefully chosen diet, or  other factors.  

Your personalized program takes the unique person who is YOU into account as we find out what works best with your individual body, history, habits and needs in both areas.  Sound interesting?

Find out more by calling or emailing to schedule a free, introductory, 1 hour, session to find out more, and see for yourself if this makes sense for you.

Can you remember the last time you had an hour of someone listening carefully as you shared your health and personal concerns?

Additional Tools for Self Empowerment:  

Is there something specific you’d like to work on but aren’t sure what would serve you best as you look over the listings below?  Send me a brief description of the situation that keeps trying to get your attention and we’ll come up with a plan that works for you.


The 5 week program to reset your intentions to what you want rather than more of what you’re doing.

Have you gotten off course with something in your life, relationships, weight, goal setting and follow through, time management, family rhythm and dynamics, work/life balance, career satisfaction, house keeping, de-cluttering?

Micro-coaching is a transformative, short term, program for resetting your thought process from what you are getting that you don’t want to what you’d rather have and are at a loss as to how to achieve.

The program consists of Intentional Declarations and MP3 to reset your course, plus daily motivational texts and 5, weekly, 20 minute phone sessions consisting of Check in, Teaching (4 new tools you can transfer to many other situations), Coaching, Wrap- Up and a Deliverable. 

$350 includes all sessions and materials, no prerequisites required*.

What people are saying about Micro-Coaching:

It was great to have the accountability to keep me focused on my goal.  D.B., Ohio
I got to the Gym every day this week but one, and before, I didn’t think I had time, plus I do all my admin on Fridays and have my evenings free. I’m even taking better care of myself by planning healthy meals. B.Y., MI
Cara helped me get clear about what I really wanted and I discovered that I deserve the best, I am so grateful to have a second chance. M.S., NJ
I feel so much more relaxed and relieved.  I know my family can work out their differences and now I know how to stay out of it.  They are getting along so much better. K.K., Pittsburgh PA

Compassionate Communication:

Did you know that about 97% of our self-talk is negative?  And when our feelings aren’t good we look for someone or something to blame?  Or when we are dissatisfied we look to the other person to make changes? 

What do you say to yourself when you make a mistake? How do you react when your mate forgets an anniversary or your friend says “Your child is a cry-baby”?

There are more loving, effective and empowered ways to communicate with yourself and the people around you.  We have had no model for these transformations, but we know one thing, we are not as happy as we’d like to be.

Based on the work of Marshall Rosenberg called Nonviolent Communication (NVC), individual, sessions give you clear, simple tools for, turning around challenging situations, reclaiming your power to get your needs met, improving relationships with yourself and even the most difficult of others.

Individual sessions $75 per hour*.  

Group Presentations available.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT):

A tapping protocol based on Chinese Acupuncture meridians.  This is a tool to use on your own to heal pain, injury, illness, anxiety, depression, and a host of other imbalances.  Safe and effective for use with children and people of all ages, even those who are not present (with permission).  I recommend at least three sessions to get the hang of how issues can be connected and how to identify key aspects to get to the root of the problem, before setting out on your own.

$75 first 3, 1 hour, in person, sessions.  Follow up 30 minute phone sessions $40*.

Certified Hypnotherapy for habit control, healing, stress relief,  trauma repair, greater clarity of purpose.

Hypnosis can’t get you to do anything you don’t want to do, it is a gentle process of relaxation and clearing the path of rocks and boulders, or clearing the garden of weeds and pests.  You will replace the unwanted features of your landscape with the positive elements of your choice, the shifts you really want to make.

$150 first session; $95 2nd session and $35 follow up session*.
