Meet Our Coach

Meet Our Coach

My name is Marit D. Weikel. I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in the state of North Carolina. I am a Certified Health and Wellness Coach from Wellcoaches, Inc. Prior to starting Weikel Health and Wellness I worked at the world renowned Duke Diet and Fitness Center as a behavioral health clinician and lifestyle coach. There I gained expertise in weight management and health promotion.  Since 2006 I have coached several hundred diverse individuals in support of weight management, lifestyle change and health promoting behaviors. In 2014 I joined the supportive team at Mission Weight Management. As a behavioral health clinician I help patients understand and integrate psychological, emotional and behavioral changes that accompany bariatric surgery.

Coach for months or years

They come for assistance and guidance.  They stay because of the relationship. 
Clients are drawn to work with me because of my background, intelligence and experience.  They stay with me because of my warmth, acceptance, encouragement, humor and support.  When you have a hard time accepting where you are at any given point in the change process, you can find strength in my consistent positive regard, alternative perspective and modeling of acceptance.  I am here for you.


How it works

While I am based out of North Carolina, my client base extends both nationally and internationally. I offer services via phone and Skype connections.  These are popular alternatives if you already feel pressed for time. No traffic.  No time of from work.  Just you and me addressing what is important to you and a time that is convenient for your schedule.
