The Standard in Trauma Coaching for Active Military & Veterans

The Standard in Trauma Coaching for Active Military & Veterans

Coaching vs Counseling

Counseling and coaching were established from the same foundations of Adler, Rogers, and other psychotherapists. The basics of both build on those foundations and branch slightly to accomplish collaborative ends. Where counseling works from a point in the past to help the client heal from past trauma, coaching works from the
premise that the client is reasonably healthy and functioning in life and wants focused guidance and direction as well as being held accountable to achieve goals the client has set. Counseling is counselor directed whereas coaching is client directed.

My Mission:

Offer resources and training to, not just manage, but succeed in personal goals.

Collaborate with those having a history of trauma, offering strategies, and tools to find the way forward.
