About Coaching

Is Coaching Right for Me?

Coaching is very different from therapy. Therapy usually focuses on resolving illness, injury, or trauma whereas coaching focuses on enhancing achievement and fulfillment. Coaching is not psychotherapy, and emotional healing is not the focus of coaching.

Although I am trained in psychotherapy, I do not engage in the practice of psychotherapy with my coaching clients. If issues arise that are best dealt with in therapy, I will refer you to an appropriately trained, licensed therapist.

Coaching may be right for you if you enjoy exploration and challenge, can set and achieve goals, enjoy taking risks, and feel good about having a supportive, objective guide on the journey.
