  • What is the difference between therapy and coaching?
    The relationship between professional therapist and life coaches are loosely connected, they share the same family name “helping professional.” However, coaching is different from therapy. Coaching is not regulated by the government, there are no state or federal laws nor regulations that govern coaching. Coaching does not require a license, specific education, or experience. Typically, coaches are certified whereas therapists are licensed. Therapists manage mental illnesses and diagnoses, coaches do not. Coaches are not medical or healthcare professionals. They don’t have the credentials or accreditation to provide mental healthcare. Coaches focus on how to reach a goal. Therapists tend to focus on the past while moving towards the future. Therapists work through emotions, behaviors, and thought patterns with their clients. They usually focus on why things are the way they are. Often clients seek both coaches and therapists to work on themselves. People who hire life coaches often want to achieve certain goals or work on their mindset. Those who attend therapy want to work on themselves, heal past traumas, and work with a licensed professional on managing their mental health challenges.

    Your appointments and well-being are very important to us. We understand that sometimes unexpected delays can occur causing schedule adjustments. However, when you book your appointment, you are holding a space on our calendar that is no longer available to our other clients. To be respectful of fellow clients, please call your therapist as soon as you know you will not be able to make your appointment. If you need to cancel your appointment, we respectfully request 24-hour advance notice. Advanced notice will allow another client access to that appointment time. Any cancellation or reschedule made less than 24 hours will result in a cancellation fee in the amount of the session fee. If you are more than 10 mins late for your scheduled virtual session, we may not be able to accommodate you. In this case, the same cancellation fee will apply. We will do our very best to reschedule your service for another time that is convenient to you. A cancellation is considered late when the appointment is cancelled less than 24 hours before the appointed time. A no-show is when a client misses an appointment without cancelling. In either case, we will charge the full session fee amount for a missed appointment.
