PSYCHOTHERAPY OR COACHING
You may be wondering if you need a therapist … or if a coach would be more appropriate for your lifestyle. In reality, you could probably answer “yes” to both.
With growth in the fields of psychotherapy and coaching, there often isn’t much of a discernible difference between them. You will find both psychotherapists and coaches working from “positive psychology” or “solution-focused” approaches that are future-oriented and focus more on your strengths and goals than on your past.
One major difference is that psychotherapy is often regulated by each individual state, whereas coaching is not. As a psychotherapist, I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in California and practice under the laws of the State of California. As a Board Certified Coach, I work internationally.
