Coaching

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!

Personal growth is a lifelong process that can help us all to live more fulfilling lives. If therapy is for those looking to grow by healing the wounds from the past, coaching can be for individuals who have made peace with the past (for the most part), and are looking to grow optimally in the present. Life can be so much more; we are full of potential, more than we realize. I am here to help you gain the skills and mindsets that you need to become your own guide of personal growth.

Coaching focuses on helping clients stay motivated in pursuit of a specific future goal.

There is a place for therapy and a place for coaching in our lives. As a therapist I utilize both of these into my work. While it is important to understand each person on a therapeutic level, exploring thoughts, feelings, and current maladaptive coping mechanisms. It is also equally important to coach people on how to change these patterns; after all isn't that why you are seeking therapy, to do things differently? As a therapist I take time to understand you and teach you a different way.
