What is Life Coaching?

Life coaching is the empowering and forward moving practice of helping adults who feel stuck in particular areas of life and who are desiring changes in significant areas of life (e.g., love, career, work/life balance, etc), and who want to grow with the help of a skillful and supportive coach.  Life coaching will help you set personal and professional goals that will give you the life you really want. Most life coaching clients are relatively healthy and successful adults who might feel that their lives are jammed or “gasping for air” in certain areas, or who want to make a big change in their lives with the support of their own personal coach. Skillful life coaching can help you move forward in an area within months, that might take you years, otherwise.

How does Life Coaching differ from the practice of psychology?

Life coaching and therapy have some overlap, as both processes work toward an improved life experience and work toward specific goals. In therapy we are working on an area of challenge that warrants a medical diagnosis; however, in life coaching, we are not working on reducing symptoms present within a diagnosis. Rather, we are focusing on modifying current behaviors and mindsets as we work towards discrete goals. In life coaching, we focus on how to get the results we want within a personal, relational, or career goal. In life coaching we are working on empowering you to live a more full, satisfying, and higher-level of life, and are we are less concerned with insight or exploring in depth how your past in impacting you. In addition, therapy is usually considered “medically necessary” and therefore is covered by insurance, but life coaching is neither medically necessary nor covered by insurance plans.

Is Life Coaching for me?

Do you want to grow in an area and see results that are tangible? Are you motivated to work on this area if given the right support? Are you at a place of adequate stability so that you can dedicate time and energy to your goals with a coach?  Do you want to be inspired? Do you want to understand and build upon you strengths? Do you want to have success? Then life coaching is for you!
