Here's what I offer
Demystify, debunk, differentiate.
Whether it's a persistent medical condition, a newly diagnosed ailment, or the commitment to oneself of investing time and energy into self-improvement, there are bumps in the road and detours that we do not anticipate. These obstacles may be in the form of a lack of care, a lack of clarity, or a lack of courage to go it alone. There is so much health and wellness information to digest that it it's easy for overwhelm to set in, especially when it starts to seem contradictory from source to source. Times like these it helps to have someone on your side.
Modify, mediate, map.
A health ally is what I'm offering. Someone who is in your corner to help you regroup or give you a pep-talk and send you back out there poised to succeed. When you haven't had the time to fully tell your health story and how it's impacting you every, single, day, there's room for that. When you need help managing test results, appointment referrals, and treatment plans, there's time for that. My job is to educate. That's first and foremost. What is happening now? What does it mean? What's the next step? Together we can strive to create a mutual learning environment. You teach me about where you've been and where you want to go, and I'll teach you how to get there.
