IF YOUR LIFE IN PORTLAND OREGON NEEDS CHANGE, Coaching is an excellent approach to balancing your life. Looking at the various aspects of your daily existence to discern where I am most happy, and what am I doing that works well for me. Am I satisfied as a professional, reaching my goals, yet not as happy with my love life?
Coaching is closely related to counseling. It can be more focused on a particular goal or a blockage to achieving a goal. Coaching may include defining assignments and practices to be worked on in between sessions. As a therapist and a coach, there may be times when we will more deeply explore road blocks to fuller happiness and satisfaction in life.
Coaching can be valuable in creating an action plan for seeking work or a change in profession. Ultimately, the goal is increased satisfaction and balance in your life.
