Learn More

Located in the San Francisco Bay Area, we are available in person or on the phone for local clients, or by phone or Skype for out-of-state clients. We meet with a client and, if desired,  his or her family, to learn about the individual’s medical issues and health goals, to hear about personal values and preferences that may be important in designing a whole health plan, and to determine the degree of coaching and/or direct advocacy help that the individual and his/her family is seeking.

We are whole person oriented—and want to help make certain that, regardless of diagnosis; the best possible outcomes are achieved, with special consideration for quality of life.
