Therapy vs Coaching

Which one do I need?

Before choosing therapy or coaching, it’s important to understand the difference between them.  Traditionally, therapy is used to treat clinical diagnosis (anxiety, depression, trauma, etc.).  It integrates clinical interventions and modalities that help heal psychological and emotional wounds that impede you from living a healthy life.  Coaching on the other hand, helps you identify clear personal and professional goals and create a strategic plan to achieve them. Where therapy looks to analyze and understand the ‘why’, coaching looks to synthesis and empower your ‘how’.  They are similar in that both help you create a positive change in your life. 


As licensed clinical social workers we are trained to diagnose in the traditional medical model of psychotherapy, however, we are not in the business of pathologizing the human experience. Our therapeutic approach is strength-based and humanistic. Whether you choose therapy or coaching, we are here to walk alongside you in your journey to wellness.
