We’ve compiled a list of answers to the questions we have encountered most frequently. It’s normal and encouraged for patients to ask many questions when choosing to work with a licensed Therapist.  If you can’t find what you are looking for, please do not hesitate to  get in touch.

  • What is the difference between coaching and therapy?
    Therapy deals with healing pain, dysfunction and conflict within an individual or in relationships. The focus is often on resolving difficulties arising from the past that hamper an individual's emotional functioning in the present, improving overall psychological functioning, and dealing with the present in more emotionally healthy ways. Coaching, on the other hand, supports personal and professional growth based on self-initiated change in pursuit of specific actionable outcomes. These outcomes are linked to personal or professional success. Coaching is future focused. While positive feelings/emotions may be a natural outcome of coaching, the primary focus is on creating actionable strategies for achieving specific goals in one's work or personal life. The emphases in a coaching relationship are on action, accountability, and follow through.
