Why does it cost so much?
When creating a workout program, the time involved is more than the one hour spent engaging in the exercise. Additional time is spent developing a program where in which you and your families needs are considered to create an individualized plan. We also use a variety of behavioral methods not used with other personal trainers, such as precision teaching, ACT, and behavioral strategies.
Typical behavior therapy when paid through insurance can cost upwards of $150. I will be happy to provide an invoice to present to your insurance as occasionally, they will pay for these services.
What makes your services different from others?
Having a background in behavior science enables me to better understand the steps that are necessary to create behavior change. Creating a new lifestyle is difficult and having an individual who understands that small victories are where the real change occurs, gives my clients a step up. Working with individuals with special needs for the previous 8 years I understand that long lasting behavior change requires family involvement. I work closely with the family to build sustainable changes that benefit the family as a whole.
Do you provide refunds?
Whether one hour or full packages are purchased, no refunds are given. In order to make change, one has to be fully invested. When signing up for my services, I believe commitment is key.

Do you work with just parents or children as well?
I provide programs for adults and children. If you are interested in your child engaging in increased activity, I will create a program for them based on their needs and limitations. If the individual I am programming for is under the age of 18 or dependent upon a guardian, the guardian will be responsible for assisting with the behavior change as needed. The assistance will be clearly defined through behavioral contract, one for the child and one for the guardian.
