Coaching is the act of guiding a person to achieve a specific goal, either professional or personal. Although therapists and coaches have similar approaches, coaches are typically more direct and have more frequent contact with clients than therapists, and focus on the specific goal at hand, rather than seeking the root of an issue. If you have a specific goal you'd like a professional perspective on, coaching might be a good step. Contact one of TherapyDen’s coaching experts today!

I am certified as a Creative Grief Support Practitioner, or as I like to call myself-a Grief Coach. Grief Coaching also allows me to work with you regardless of what state you live in. As your coach, I can work with you anywhere. Grief coaching looks like helping you find your strengths so you can navigate the mess of grief. Grief coaching looks like having someone walk beside you through your process. Remember, I have been in similar shoes, you don't have to do this alone.

I typically use coaching techniques to assist clients undergoing child custody evaluations or social studies in family court or family law cases to make the most thorough and effective presentations. I am familiar with what is required in these cases, and by using coaching and teaching techniques I can often ensure that my client is the best prepared parent at the courthouse. Evaluators themselves are also pleased when my clients are well prepared because it makes the evaluator's job easier. Due to modern technology, I can typically provide these services nationwide.

Part of the issue with therapy, and our society as a whole is the way we see our world and selves. We expect to not feel a certain way, push a feeling away and then expect a drink, a funny movie or food to help us feel better. We also assume therapy should be the only place where we talk about this (even though we know talking over and over again doesn’t help). Coaching is an invitation to expanding preconceived boundaries about yourself and the world because you want to get results.

Coaching is a process, not a to-do list. We look at exactly what’s going on in your life, and what you want to be different. We find out where you are now, and how you got there.

I am credentialed as a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) through the International Coaching Federation (ICF).

1:1 coaching holds space and curiosity for what is rising in you. We will honor the old patterns and themes, difficulties and stuck points, and see the opportunities there for growth. We will explore what lights you up and create opportunities to invite more of what you’re wanting into your life. We will talk about boundaries and reclaiming your power, energetic protection and releasing held energy that isn’t yours. We’ll meet the fear and invite it to join in as you continue to move forward.

Personal growth is a lifelong process that can help us live more fulfilling lives. Growth is relevant in all stages of our lives: If therapy is for folks looking to grow by healing the wounds from the past, then coaching is for people who hope to grow optimally in the present and the future, in both personal and professional realms. I am here to help you gain the skills and mindsets that you need to grow into your potential, and ultimately, become your own master of personal growth.

Sometimes we need practical skills to help us get to the next level in our wellness. This may require some skill-building to develop new systems and habits with our business, nutrition, morning routine, time management, etc. This may be just what you need to heal and move forward. For instance, you may come with anxiety, but once we create a plan and establish boundaries, you feel centered and in control. This is the power of coaching.
