Many of the approaches of individual counseling are incorporated into coaching. Coaching sessions, however, tend to be shorter and are much more solution-focused. I work with my clients to distinguish goals from values and establish how they may gain greater clarity and a sense of commitment to their chosen endeavors. In addition, clients are taught powerful problem solving tools drawn from both Eastern and Western mindfulness traditions around accepting versus merely tolerating difficulties, as well as how to most effectively manage stressful emotions and circumstances while working to achieve their goals.
