F.A.Q. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CONVENTIONAL RN AND A HOLISTIC RN? As a conventional RN, in environments like the hospital, nurses follow the nursing process for nursing interventions along with physician's orders to administer medication/implement medical treatments. The care that I offer, in this particular specialized field of nursing , as a Holistic RN and Health & Wellness Nurse Coach, I too, follow the nursing process to provide supportive care, educate healthy lifestyle changes, while implementing coaching tools to help my clients reach the goal of their best self (body, mind, emotion). Note: Care does not include medical treatment or implementation of any kind, please see you primary care provider for any and all medical issues. WHY IS HAVING A PROFESSIONAL THROUGH SELF GROWTH IMPORTANT? The benefit of having a professional during your journey of self growth is to help you navigate throughout your path. Your practitioner can help you notice and observe life stressors and also help you learn ways to cope therapeutically. This helps to prevent you from the detour of developing maladaptive ways of coping. WHY IS BOARD CERTIFICATION IMPORTANT? Being board certified means many things, the main thing being that there is a board behind my credentials validating my competency and expertise in this specialty of nursing. This ensures that I am capable to give you, the client, optimal care. I have received board certification as a Holistic RN and a Health & Wellness Nurse Coach. DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE? Insurance does not cover my services at this time. There have been some HSAs that have reimbursed my clients after they submit a detailed invoice from each session. Note: Each HSA is different therefore you must check in with your specific HSA to verify coverage. WHAT CAN YOU HELP ME WITH? The main things that I can help with are mind & body stress relief, generalized health and wellness, creating a therapeutic relationship with yourself and your loved ones, & assist you to choose lifestyle choices that support your overall wellbeing. Also, there are many benefits that my clients experience that surpass the main reason they started care, I call them happy side effects! HOW ARE YOUR SESSIONS SET UP? Sessions are held virtually for your convenience. Health & wellness nurse coaching sessions are available to all of Louisiana! Note: Therapeutic Yoga Sessions are available outside of Louisiana
