Adult weight-loss coaching is also offered over the phone. Phone coaching is perfect for people who live too far from my Manalapan office to see me in person. It also works well for people who want to schedule sessions during the day from their homes or places of work and can’t travel to my office because of time constraints or a need to stay with young children.
- Phone coaching is intended for people who do not require treatment for an eating disorder or other substantial mental health problem. Phone coaching clients do not receive a mental health diagnosis and coaching sessions are not submitted to insurance. Although behavioral health insurance will not cover telephone weight-loss coaching, Flexible Spending Accounts do cover weight loss coaching as long as there is a medical reason to lose weight, such as obesity, diabetes, or other significant health risk.
A typical phone coaching program includes:
- Initial phone session
- Assessment, goal-setting, skill overview
- 60 minutes, $150
5 phone sessions scheduled within a two-month period 45 minutes each, $800
(when purchased in advance)
Includes email and text coaching as needed to accomplish your goals.
If purchased one-at-a-time, Individual sessions after assessment are $150 each.
While the initial assessment session is required, the number of additional phone sessions can be adjusted to suit individual needs.
