I had the pleasure of having Devin in the Spring of 2014. He enhanced our obesity and nutrition-focused medical group visit by spending valuable one-on-one time with each patient as a health coach. He helped guide patients towards identifying smart goals for themselves, and brainstormed baby-step ways for them to work towards achieving them.
He was sensitive to the cultural nuances of working with certain populations, and using his very inclusive, disarming communication skills, he helped frame patient’s challenges as approachable and hopeful. He effectively started with patients where they were at, and also used his training and observations to help me see ways for the program to grow and create new alliances. I would strongly recommend him as a culturally-sensitive effective health coach!
