WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COACHING AND COUNSELING?
Counseling is a therapeutic service that follows a medical model. In Counseling, patients go to a therapist to heal. The therapist is the expert.
Coaching is not a medically-based service, it is positive and works with clients to move forward toward a goal. Coaches do not treat mental health conditions.
DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?
No, Coaching is not a medical service, and therefore it is not covered by insurance.
