frequently asked questions

What is the difference between coaching and traditional counseling?

In general, traditional counseling is follows a clinical model to help address symptoms such as depression, anxiety, grief, etc, which can be tied to childhood experiences, traumas or biological issues. Often people seek counseling when they are in crisis or not functioning normally day to day. Since psychotherapy is often billed to insurance, there are certain requirements and limitations that must be addressed (like providing a diagnosis). Mental health providers often are licensed through the state and meet certain educational requirements.

Coaching is focused on present day life and teaches you how to maximize your intuition to attract the abundance that is waiting for you. Often the women I work with are extremely successful on appearance: they are mothers, professionals, students and go-getters! Coaching is a wonderful way to transform already successful women to an even higher level of self-understanding and joy.  As a coach, I use my various professional hats as a psychotherapist, yoga teacher, reiki master and spiritual ninja to help support you on your transformation from woman to kick-ass warrior goddess! As a side note, coaches do not need to meet any specific licenses or educational degrees, so make sure you do your research when picking a coach.

How long do I need to see my coach before I can expect results?

Although everyone is unique, some people experience positive change after the first session! In general, most people experience significant change within a few sessions. Psychotherapy and coaching can be short-term or long-term, depending on your needs.
