What is the difference between coaching and therapy?
Therapy is deep inner work for resolving problems such as stress, depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, and difficulty functioning day-to-day. Therapy can focus on your past and teach you how to create a better life today. Therapy can only be conducted in the state of California.
Coaching is for those who are healthy and already self-motivated. Many times coaching takes over where therapy leaves off. Coaching is for people who are already functional and want more. We offer coaching sessions via zoom around the world.
