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 integrated coaching into my practice in 2015 to provide clients with adjunct support to supplement their therapy. Subsequently, I developed a comprehensive outpatient program consisting of counseling, coaching and case management to provide individuals with the necessary support to promote sustainable change and improve treatment outcomes. I supervise a team of coaches and clinicians in my outpatient practice.

I provide parent coaching and executive functioning coaching. Coaching is focused on developing specific, targeted, and time-limited goals and strategies to meet those particular goals. Many times individuals are functioning fairly well in many aspects of their lives but need to develop a particular skillset or new approach to engaging in an area of challenge (e.g. setting boundaries, organizing and planning, etc.).

— Munn Saechao, Counselor in Mountain View, CA

I am certified as an Executive and Personal Coach, which is a fancy way of saying I help clients with both work and life challenges. Freud said, "Love and work, work and love. That's all there is." If we define both of those in broad terms (I think you can love a lot of different people, things, and causes), I agree with him. As a feminist therapist, I am able to take some helpful concepts from Freud (like the power of the unconscious) and leave the rest.

A Therapeutic Coach can help you move past obstacles in your life and help you to discover the choices you have available within you for success. By clearing limiting beliefs, values or decisions you have made in your past you may open doorways to a richer and fuller life, now. Some of the blocks that we put in our path may not always be in our conscious awareness.

— Lisa Schaedler, Clinical Social Worker in ,

Coaching is a process that aims to improve performance and focuses on the ‘here and now’ rather than on the distant past or future. I can help you achieve your personal best and to produce the results you want in your personal and professional life. Coaching assists a client to bridge the gap between where they are now, to where they would like to be far more effectively than if they worked alone. Let me help you move forward, get unstuck/ unmotivated and get where you are going.
