Coaching is the act of guiding a person to achieve a specific goal, either professional or personal. Although therapists and coaches have similar approaches, coaches are typically more direct and have more frequent contact with clients than therapists, and focus on the specific goal at hand, rather than seeking the root of an issue. If you have a specific goal you'd like a professional perspective on, coaching might be a good step. Contact one of TherapyDen’s coaching experts today!

Intimacy Coaching is for individuals and couples who have or are currently doing the work in therapy but, they feel that they need something more to enhance and build upon the work that they either have done or are currently doing now. Intimacy coaching provides individuals and couples the space to continue to explore their sexual selves as well as to explore their partner’s sexual selves.

Part of the issue with therapy, and our society as a whole is the way we see our world and selves. We expect to not feel a certain way, push a feeling away and then expect a drink, a funny movie or food to help us feel better. We also assume therapy should be the only place where we talk about this (even though we know talking over and over again doesn’t help). Coaching is an invitation to expanding preconceived boundaries about yourself and the world because you want to get results.

— Yoni Banayan, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Las Vegas, NV

— Candice N. Crowley, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Cincinnati, OH

I help you identify best practices you want to integrate into your life and then help troubleshoot practical barriers to doing it. I integrate previous business experience with psychotherapy principles to help you make progress. Coaching can be goal related and include things like career counseling, help with networking strategies and execution, and other practical topics. Or coaching can be focused on mental health issues like better managing ADHD, OCD, or anxiety. Available online & in person

— Katie Playfair, Licensed Professional Counselor in Vancouver, WA

Together we will create goals and look at areas you may feel stuck. This can include relationships, work, life in general, or your hobbies. We will find what your motivations style is and give you the tools to reach the heights you want to reach.

Sometimes we need practical skills to help us get to the next level in our wellness. This may require some skill-building to develop new systems and habits with our career, nutrition, fitness, morning routine, time management, etc. For instance, you may come with anxiety, but once we create a plan and establish boundaries, you feel centered, in control, and well-rested. Coaching can play a huge role in being just what you need to heal and move forward-- especially in addition to CBT.

I will meet you where you are while supporting you in becoming your most authentic self. Together, we will overcome obstacles and celebrate your victories. I want you to feel empowered and worthy of living your best life.

— Rosalind Herrington-Moxon, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate in Olympia, WA

I offer Financial Coaching services as well as traditional therapy. Coaching is different from therapy in that we will look at your future goals and help you take steps towards them as apposed to healing past traumas or treating current mental health challenges. I love financial coaching because personal finance is a passion of mine. Educating others on money and working to close gender, racial, and ability based pay gaps are issues I strongly believe in.

— Amanda Kruger, Licensed Professional Counselor in Denver, CO

As a result of my advanced training as a life and business coach, I can my clients gain clarity in their purpose and vision, guide them through the decision making process, support them in removing blocks to progress in goals throughout all areas of their life, and assist them in overcoming imposter syndrome and other limiting beliefs. This will help them to set healthy boundaries, avoid or recover from burnout, improve their relationships, and achieve true work-life harmony.

— Jodie Solberg, Hypnotherapist in Lynnwood, WA

Personal growth is a lifelong process that can help us all to live more fulfilling lives. If therapy is for those looking to grow by healing the wounds from the past, coaching can be for individuals who have made peace with the past (for the most part), and are looking to grow optimally in the present. Life can be so much more; we are full of potential, more than we realize. I am here to help you gain the skills and mindsets that you need to become your own guide of personal growth.
