Health coaches are embedded within a care team, providing support and expertise when needed

Help patients meet their health goals through proven behavior change methods

You’ll also lead the Whole Health Council — which gathers feedback from patients to help inform further services and education to make care more accessible and beneficial — and attend events to spread knowledge and raise awareness.

Every day I get to walk alongside patients

as they consider the possibilities, make positive changes, and celebrate their successes. To get to do all this with a team of like-minded coworkers simply adds to the satisfaction.

Donna Triemstra, Whole Health Coach

Health Coach Role

For us, "health coach" isn't a title that just anyone can use. Help people gain control of their health through empathetic listening and behavior change.

All Vera health coaches are certified through a stringent accreditation program and trained in empathetic listening along with the Transtheoretical Behavior Change Model by our team of coaches.

As a result, our coaches are well-equipped to work directly with patients, providing the guidance and support they need to change habits, make informed and proactive decisions about their own health, and meet lifelong goals.

As a fully integrated part of the primary care team, health coaches are able to provide a path to behavior change that works with each patient’s whole health plan.
