Certified Health and Wellness Coaches help bring your health goals to life by providing expertise, guidance and support.
Health Coaching is a partnership formed to help you move towards optimal health and healing. The role of the coach is not to tell you what to do. Their role is to help you discover what is best for you by:
TurnWheel uses the 8 domains of the Wellness Wheel as a starting point to help clients identify areas of focus. The Health Coaching process is structured in that your coach will use evidenced-based techniques to guide you toward reaching your health goals. At the same time, the process is very unstructured in that you, as the client, ultimately determine your own path timeline for reaching success.
Registered Dietitians will coach you on the basic principles of nutrition and healthy diet.
Classes led by both Registered Dietitians and Health Coaches hold focused group sessions offering a safe space for you to share struggles as well as success!

10 Common Reasons to Consult with an RDN
You Want Help Managing Diabetes, High Blood Pressure or Other Chronic Diseases
An RDN can help you understand your condition and how the foods you choose might affect it. Plus, a registered dietitian nutritionist works with you to create an eating plan that has the nutrients needed to manage your condition.
You Are Thinking of Having or Have Had Gastric Bypass Surgery
Since your stomach can only manage small servings after surgery, it’s tricky to get the nutrients that your body needs. As a part of your health care team, an RDN helps you make changes to your eating plan without settling for less taste.
You Have Digestive Problems
Working closely with you and your doctor, a registered dietitian nutritionist helps fine-tune your diet. Guidance can help you make choices that do not aggravate your condition. For example, limiting fried foods, or caffeinated and carbonated drinks.
You Realize the Need to Feed Your Family Healthier Foods but You Do Not Cook
A registered dietitian nutritionist can teach you how to plan and prepare meals in a simple, healthful and convenient way.
You or Your Child Is Experiencing Disordered Eating
As part of the treatment team, RDNs counsel individuals with eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia.
You Need to Gain or Lose Weight
Fad diets may sound like the quick ticket to weight gain or loss, but they rarely work for very long. An RDN can suggest calorie sources for healthy weight gain. Or, design a personalized weight loss plan, including diet changes and physical activity — while still eating all your favorite foods.
You're Caring for an Aging Parent
An RDN can help with food or drug interactions, proper hydration, special diets for hypertension and changing taste buds as you age.
You Want Practical Lifestyle Advice
Need help sorting through the facts and fiction of nutrition headlines? Learn how to read labels at the supermarket, discover how healthy cooking can be inexpensive, learn how to dine out healthfully and how to manage temptations. When you see an RD or RDN, the last thing you’ll get is one-size-fits-all diet advice. After learning about your health history, favorite foods, eating and exercise habits, an RD or RDN will help you set goals and prioritize. Follow-up visits will focus on maintenance and monitoring your progress.
You Want to Improve Your Performance in Sports
A RDN can help you set goals to achieve results whether you’re running a marathon, skiing or jogging with your dog.
You're Pregnant, Trying to Get Pregnant, or a New Mom
Meet with an RDN to make sure you get the nutrients you need for a healthy pregnancy. And, after the baby comes, a registered dietitian nutritionist can help make sure you’re getting the nutrients you need for you and your little one. Unsure what you can eat because of celiac disease, food allergies, lactose intolerance, or another condition? It’s easy to be overwhelmed by what you think you can’t eat. And, that can lead to a boring diet that doesn’t give your body the nutrition it needs. An RDN can teach you strategies about identifying foods to avoid and help you find substitutions to keep your diet balanced and tasty.

The role of the HWC is to create a partnership between you (the client) and the coach. The HWC is uniquely qualified to use evidence-based coaching practices to bridge the gap between a client’s own health values and needs with his/her/their own life plan. Success is defined by the client and supported by the coach.
The HWC will follow the ethical standards set by the International Federation of Coaching (ICF). The HWC will also follow the individual ethical standards set by their individual discipline. A HWC who is a dietitian will follow the standards as set by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics in the areas of competence, professionalism, integrity and social responsibility.
Clients who have a regular health coach have seen the following benefits:
- Better sleep
- Lower stress
- Improved nutrition
- Increased physical exercise
- Better time management skills
- Smoking cessation
The Holistic Health Package combines Health Coaching with dietary counseling with a Registered Dietitian. This package gives you 10 thirty minute sessions per month. You have the choice of adding additional sessions or lengthening your sessions at the discretion of the HWC. There may be an additional cost with additional sessions.
If you need help in disease management, the HWC can make appropriate recommendations. If the HWC coach holds a license or certificate in another discipline, the coach can help explain how a separate contracting agreement may be offered.
