How does coaching differ from therapy?
Coaching differs from counseling and therapy in its concentration on the current situation. It does not delve into the past, work through a crisis or seek to diagnose. Coaching focuses on creating change through education, guidance, and the implementation of effective tools.
Do you work with separated or divorced couples?
Personalized coaching is an effective way for parents who are separated or divorced to work together to create structure and cohesion for their children. Beth helps parents clarify their desires for co-parenting and implement strategies to help their children navigate two households.
