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!

I am certified as a Creative Grief Support Practitioner, or as I like to call myself-a Grief Coach. Grief Coaching also allows me to work with you regardless of what state you live in. As your coach, I can work with you anywhere. Grief coaching looks like helping you find your strengths so you can navigate the mess of grief. Grief coaching looks like having someone walk beside you through your process. Remember, I have been in similar shoes, you don't have to do this alone.

I specialize in coaching to help my clients achieve their goals by breaking them down into smaller, attainable goals to do the things they need to do and want to do. Occupational therapists are masters in analyzing an activity or task by holistically looking at a person's strengths, habits, routines, physical environment, and the activity demands. A variety of goals include: work/school management, stress and health management, home management, and personal growth and development.

— Michelle May, Counselor in West Bloomfield, MI

Coaching is used to foster forward movement and accountability. It is for those who need support on the path to change. It is a directive approach and enforces change. Coaching can be used in conjunction with therapy but is not a substitute for those who will benefit from healing trauma, anxiety, depression, self esteem, with therapy. It can be integrated during the course of therapy to help with consistency OR it can be used on it's own if one is seeking accountability toward a particular goal.

— Live Life Now! Counseling and Coaching Tonya Jordan, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor

Sometimes, it's just good to process your emotions, hopes, dreams, fears, and struggles with someone who isn't your parent, sibling, partner, or boss. Coaching helps you sort through your thoughts and emotions about the direction you see your life going. Do you make a left turn, or a right turn. Together, we'll map out a plan to point your toes in the direction you want to be going in your life. Think of coaching as a gentle nudge to empower you toward growth and progress in your life.
