Personal Life Coach
As a therapist I can make a better decision about whether a potential client is appropriate for coaching. Coaching is about helping high-functioning clients define and achieve goals, it is not psychotherapy. Clients come to me for time management, career, business, creative, self-growth, and spiritual issues. I offer my clients feedback, structure, and support. The relationship between myself and my clients is based on mutual trust and respect and is a designed alliance.
