Welcome to Health and Wellness Coaching

Notice anything new? From now on the heading for this website and blog will be Health and Wellness Coaching reflecting the direction in which I want to focus my practice and how I want to present what I am offering. A main aspect of what I focus on will still be mind-body approaches to health but the ultimate goal is to help everyone to discover health and wellness through a variety of means. I also plan to extend what I do beyond Martha’s Vineyard and the new name allows that as well.
