shape the future of health careBefore she founded Core Health Partners, Julie Alexander spent years providing consulting and project development services to private non-profit and governmental organizations. Many of the projects she helped to launch focused on increasing access to health care. She was privileged to work with clients such as the Wake County Medical Society, the Foundation for Advanced Health Programs, Wake Health Services, Inc., and The NC Primary Health Care Association.

Since training as an integrative health coach at Duke Integrative Medicine, Julie has refocused her consulting work on increasing access to self-care.

If you or your organization is undertaking a new project that will bring more health to health care, please contact us. We would love to know what you are doing, and explore ways we can partner with you in the transformation of healthcare.

Supporting Optimal Self-care (SOS) for Life

Empowered Wellness is our signature health promotion program that combines wellness education, coaching, and peer-support.

Using the Duke Wheel of Health as a model, the program facilitates an exploration of different aspects of self-care. Through self-assessment, educational presentations, group coaching, and homework, participants create and implement their own individualized wellness plan.

The core program consists of eight one-hour group sessions scheduled over 3 months. Groups are limited to eight participants. The program can be combined with individual coaching, if desired, or with our wellness circle programs to promote culture change within groups or organizations.

Please contact us to discuss how Empowered Wellness could be implemented in your community or organization. 

Core Health Partners offers a unique blend of wellness services that allow us to offer personalized service to each health-seeker. Some people need information, others benefit from Path to Wellnesssupport and motivation from a health coach, and some need clinical guidance to figure out what self-care approaches are most relevant for them. We call this "Integrative Coaching Care."

Our Founder, Julie Alexander, is a nurse coach with specialized training in health promotion and lifestyle approaches to preventing and managing chronic disease. Her integrative approach blends coaching and clinical guidance according to the unique needs of each person seeking care.

Services for individual health partners include:

  • Embark: A two-session consultation that helps new partners create a personalized Wellness Map.
  • Pathfinder: A twelve-week coaching program for health-seekers who desire support as they clarify wellness objectives, create a plan, take appropriate action, and create sustainable self-care practices. Provides health coaching and educational support.
  • Tune-Up: A twelve-week therapeutic lifestyle change program.  Tune-Up provides clinical, educational, and coaching support for partners who want to lose excess weight, achieve healthier body composition, increase energy, and adopt lifelong self-care habits that reduce risks for chronic disease and support optimal well-being.

Julie also offers group wellness programs for local businesses or organizations. If you would like to get to know Julie, she encourages you to schedule an appointment for a complimentary phone consultation.

Individualized Approach

"Julie is a skilled professional, a great listener, and a great human being. She sees each person as a unique individual with unique questions, dreams and goals. She does not presume she understands by providing space for discovery and clarification of a person's goals. Julie assesses, mentors, monitors and encourages -- meeting the individual in their space, time and need."

Sustainable Alterations

"Julie really helped me to critically analyze my existing habits and make sustainable alterations in pursuit of my weight loss goal. I have lost 62 lbs in the 9 months since we worked together and I am very close to reaching and maintaining my overall health goal. I can't thank Julie enough for the difference her work has made in my life."
