What is the difference between Coaching and Therapy?
Coaching focuses on explicit solutions to identified problems, bound by present circumstances. Coaching sessions focus on discovering strengths, identifying goals, and designing solutions based in the present.

Therapy focuses on changing life-long patterns of behavior, not limited to specific, present circumstances. In therapy, a wide array of interventions are available to address issues and promote client self-awareness.
What if my personality just isn’t compatible with my child’s?
