Yale Health Coaching Program

Meet Your Health Coach

Adriana, Courtney, Chanel, Kim, Sonia and Trish are Registered Nurses with experience helping individuals make changes in their health behaviors and manage their health issues. Your Health Coach will help you develop an individualized program to achieve goals for healthy living regardless of whether you are ready to change or just thinking about it.

Your Health Coach can also assist you in understanding your medical diagnosis, your medical condition, and your doctor’s treatment plans so you can make important changes to achieve optimal health and well-being. Even if you don’t have a medical condition, your Health Coach can help you make important changes in your health behaviors (i.e., exercise and nutrition) to help you improve your health and prevent the development of certain medical conditions.

Your Health Coach is available to meet with you conveniently on campus or by telephone.

Health coaching is a benefits program offered by Yale University in partnership with TrestleTree, an accredited health transformation organization. The program provides you with free, confidential assistance to achieve your health goals.
