Duke Trained Integrative Health Coach
Duke Integrative Health Coaches are trained to partner with their clients holistically, guiding them to discover their own direction, motivation, and support in reaching their goals. It begins with the client completing a self-assessment based on Duke’s Wheel of Health, addressing all the areas that effect one’s wellbeing. This helps the client define their Optimal Health Vision. It also illuminates their personal strengths and brings greater clarity around the areas in which they wish to see growth and change. With this knowledge, a Personalized Health Plan is created and used throughout the coaching process. The client chooses which area(s) would have the biggest impact for them, then options and potential obstacles are discussed until specific, realistic action step(s) are agreed upon. In each session, outcomes are reviewed, lessons are discussed, goals are reevaluated, and the next set of specific, realistic action step(s) are agreed upon. The focus remains on the present and future, continually working towards realizing their Optimal Health Vision.
During her nearly three decades as a Registered Nurse, Laurice has seen patients, family members, and friends struggle with making healthy lifestyle changes over and over again. Many had the desire to feel, do, and be better, but didn’t know where or how to begin. When she heard of the Duke Integrative Health Coaching Program, she was excited to learn how to help people create their own health plan based on their lives, schedules, and values. She has found it extremely rewarding to see the positive impact on the health and wellbeing of her clients.
Laurice is married with five children. She enjoys outdoor activities, traveling, and spending time with her family and friends.
