Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between therapy and life coaching?
A therapist can help you with mental health difficulties, trauma, diagnosis, and assessments. Therapists can also assist you to develop potential, find a solution, provide direction and apply clinical methods like cognitive behavioral therapy and psychodynamic approaches. Therapists complete hours of supervised training and hold Masters degrees in psychology or counseling. Life coaches are well-versed in coordinating with doctors and mental health professionals when necessary and can refer clients to them when necessary. Life coaches may hold advanced degrees, certifications, and specialized training to practice coaching. Life coaches cannot treat mental health problems, but can act as a support system in addition to a mental health professional to help further your progress in developing your potential, guide you toward solutions, provide direction and accountability with goal-setting.

As your Health & Life Coaches, it is our goal to create independent thinkers who can access their inner wisdom to make the best choices for their lives. Effective coaching is a process and the amount of time it takes one person to let go of an old belief or habit might be different for someone else. Coaching is a fluid process based on independence rather than codependence. The goal is for our clients gain the knowledge and resources to thrive in their progress without the necessity of a coach, and to desire the consistency and relationship that a coach provides throughout the duration of one's life.
