- Most clients seek psychotherapy to alleviate suffering.
- Coaching is helpful to reach specific goals.
Psychotherapy provides a deep listening container to process the hard stuff: grief, trauma, heartbreak, depression, anxiety.
Coaching takes the form of identifying desired changes, outlining goals to achieve them, and being held accountable for the goals you’ve set. Both approaches can lead to taking inspired action and transforming your life.
Unlike coaching, to become a licensed therapist takes years of training (Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology), in addition to 3,000 supervised clinical hours working one-on-one with clients.
I’ve been a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist (LMFT) in California since 1993. My coaching training was a one-year program, combining online and live seminars through Future Force.
I am personally committed to lifelong learning and continuing education in the fields of psychology, mindfulness and self-growth forever.
Many people need to clear emotional blocks in order to benefit from coaching. I assume the role of a co-creator, wise counselor, accountability partner and cheerleader to motivate you.
I’ll ask deep questions to figure out what’s holding you back. A combination of coaching and therapy is ideal for uncovering and clearing any limiting beliefs.
To establish healthy communication in relationships, there are always emotional triggers to be addressed therapeutically, paving the path to coaching for behavioral change.
You can learn to upgrade your communication skills and use words as wands rather than weapons.
