FAQS

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.

WHAT DO THE TERMS NEURODIVERSE, NEURODIVERGENT, AND NEUROTYPICAL MEAN?

Neurodiverse is a word that describes the human variation of the brain or neuro types.

Neurodivergent refers to a person who has a brain type that is different from the majority. Examples are Autism and ADHD.


Neurotypical refers to a person whose brain works like those in the "majority" of neurotypes. 

DO YOU DIAGNOSE PEOPLE WITH AUTISM/ADHD?


No, I only provide Coaching and education services. Diagnosis is assessed by a medical professional.
