      "Wow, I am speechless at how amazing of a session that was. So helpful, and gave me many tools to move forward. I didn’t know that was possible to do in 30 minutes, but my Coach guided us through such an efficient journey. Thank you!"

      Daniel from Illinois

      "It was immensely helpful to talk to my Coach about strategies for nurturing a sense of calm and control. And then practicing that mindfulness exercise during our session effectively bridged the didactic component to the experiential. I'm so grateful that my Coach meets me where I am in such a lovely, focused, and accepting way."

      Alicia from California

      "I really appreciate that my Coach centers me, gives me space to explore my thoughts, and then reigns me back in to focus. Then asks me what the action steps are to get to my desired outcome. I feel we unpack a lot in 30 minutes and I always feel I have clarity after I get off calls. Looking forward to our next session!"

      FAQs

      Therapy (also known as psychotherapy, counseling, or “talk therapy”) is similar to coaching in some ways. Both use evidence-based techniques and intentional dialogue as the primary tools for growth and discovery, but there are also key differences between these services:

      • Coaching focuses primarily on the present and future, while therapy focuses on the past, present and future.
      • Coaching is focused on personal growth and professional development, while therapy is designed to help you work through deeper issues such as anxiety, depression, or trauma.
