What’s the difference between a coach, mentor & a therapist?
Here’s a simple way to look at it:
A mentor tells you what to do to achieve what they’ve achieved.
A therapist assesses & diagnoses so that they can prescribe a treatment plan.
A coach partners with you so that you can discover & be inspired to move toward your own truth, wisdom, and unique path.
Each of these roles can help you improve the quality of your life in different ways.
I’ve partnered with hundreds of clients coaching thousands of hours with leaders, creatives & entrepreneurs globally.
I hold a Bachelor’s & Master’s Degree in Psychology & Organizational Psychology from Stony Brook University & Columbia University respectively.
I’m also a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) credentialed by the ICF (International Coaching Federation), and a Energy Leadership Index (ELI) Master Practitioner (a powerful assessment that you’ll experience if we work together).
From a therapeutic standpoint, I am trained in Compassionate Inquiry (CI), a trauma-informed psychotherapeutic approach developed by Dr. Gabor Maté, and Internal Family Systems (IFS), another therapeutic approach developed by Dr. Richard Schwartz.
I’ve been there – woke up in my 30’s & barely recognized myself. “Successful” & put-together on the outside & completely burned out, bored out & numbed out on the inside – and feeling like there’s no way out.
What I didn’t know at the time was that stress was the symptom, not the problem.
Magic happens when we connect with our truth.
Today, in my 40’s, I’m connected to myself, do what I love every day, serve and connect deeply and with meaning, make my own rules, and surround myself with people and things that light me up.
I’m grateful that I didn’t ignore my inner protest years ago that “something needs your attention.”
If you’re sensing something similar –
I invite you to clear the noise & reconnect with your truth.
Everything you want is in the direction of your truth.
Stress & stuckness is only a sign that something needs your attention.
The space where science, mindfulness, and spirituality meets.
You will be working with a coach whose approach is anchored in mindfulness, psychology, neuroscience, spirituality & trauma-informed practices.
During your sessions, you will experience safety to explore what’s top of mind & in your heart while achieving your coaching goals.
In between your coaching sessions, you will receive reflection sheets to deepen your insights.
