Whats the difference between Coaching and Counseling?
While coaching and counseling are all similar (ie. they aim to help people overcome challenges or reach success), they are generally delivered by people with different credentials and different relationships with their client. Both have great value and work to enable clients to make positive changes in their lives and become more productive. Both provide a safe, non-judgement environment. The goal of COUNSELING is to uncover, assess and diagnose the nature or root of a problem. The idea behind therapy is to focus on past traumas and issues to change self-destructive habits, repair and improve relationships and work through painful feelings. Clients generally come to counseling when they are struggling emotionally with an issue that is causing a problem in the activities of daily life. In this sense, therapy focuses on their clients past as a tool for understanding present behaviors, with the hope of resolving and healing past issues and creating a happier, more stable future.
The goal of LIFE COACHING enables the person to take more control of their life and take action in the direction of their goals. The focus is more on the present and future while being solution-oriented. It is a discipline designed to help motivate and inspire people to achieve more than they believe is possible. Life Coaching presumes the client is currently free from acute distress, and clients come with a desire for clarity, direction and accountability. Individuals partner with a life coach to clarify goals and identify obstacles and problematic behaviors and create action plans to achieve desired results. The process of life coaching takes the client’s current starting point as an acceptable neutral ground and is more action based.

I’d like you to work with my Teen what’s next?
We can schedule a free 20-minute conversation by phone to talk about whether life coaching is right for your teen. Please click HERE to set up a time! After you decide you want to move forward, Step 2 is then setting up the Initial Interview. The point of the initial interview is for the me to talk with your student about what they can expect to get out of the coaching process. This meeting is an opportunity for your student and I to get to know one another, build rapport, try out a few coaching exercises, and determine if we are a good ﬁt for each other. If you and your student decide to proceed with the coaching program after the initial interview, you and I can discuss the desired method of coaching (in person or over the phone), frequency and schedule of coaching sessions, and payment schedule.
What are your fees?
As a guideline, I do not want the cost of the life coaching to prohibit students or parents from experiencing and beneﬁting from the the process. Let's discuss options that work for you and your family.
