Is Coaching right for you?
“Therapy is about uncovering & recovering, while Coaching is about discovering.”
— Patrick Williams, Ed.D., MCC
How we experience the world is a reflection of what's inside.
Both coaching & therapy can play integral roles in an individual's development & emotional health. Often, professional counseling can help find answers to pain & brokenness, while a coach focuses of partnering with you to assist in discovery & personal growth. You may experience both emotional healing & personal development in either coaching or therapy. It is important that you, as the client, find the best fit for you & your needs.
LifeEmergent may be the perfect next step for you. We will work together to determine whether that is the case during the initial consultation. If compatibility isn't something either of us feels, I will happily provide recommendations & referrals to help you find the right partner. Take the first step.
