What’s the difference between Counseling and Coaching?
Traditional counseling deals with healing pain, resolving past trauma, and improving relationships. The emphasis is on learning how to manage emotions and come up with effective strategies to handle stressors in your life. Part of the process can include making peace with the past in order to live fully and joyfully in the present.

What does the Coaching Process look like?
Coaching typically begins with a personal interview (either face-to-face or by teleconference) to discuss an individual’s aspirations and vision. We identify what is important to you and what you want to accomplish in a concise plan. You are encouraged to take specific actions that support your goals between scheduled coaching sessions. We review your progress and set new goals. The coach will decide with you the frequency of sessions based upon your needs.
