- What is the difference between therapy & coaching?
The difference between therapy & coaching is that therapy is a medical treatment & Coaching is a self-improvement process. Even though Jenny maintains her License as A Marriage Therapist, she does not offer therapy to clients. This means she does not do any medical diagnosis or treatment. If you need Medical support, Mental health support, or Addiction treatment we encourage you to reach out to specialists in those areas. In some cases Coaching can be done alongside therapy and/or medical treatment. If you would like an assessment of your specific situation please schedule a free consultation, and we will discuss whether coaching is a good fit at this time.
- Is online coaching effective?
After 12-years doing therapy both in-person and online, Jenny has found online coaching to be as effective, if not more so, than in-person coaching. Online coaching requires you to create a "safe" space to do personal and/or relationship work in your own home environment. There are a couple of potential benefits to this:
1) Having a "safe place" in your own environment to do personal work and have honest conversations increases chances of long-term success.
2) Doing the work in your own environment allows you to practice the mindset shifts and skills in your own space. This can help with memory and retention of the changes your making.
If you have any questions, or need some ideas for how to create a private space in your own environment, schedule a free consult to discuss this.
- What if my partner doesn't want to join me for coaching?
If you want to work on your Primary Partnership/Marriage, it is ideal if both people want to start the process together. That being said, more than 50% of the time we start with individuals. It's just the reality that often one person is ready before the other. If your partner wants to join at any time during the coaching process we will discuss ways to best integrate them into the work at that time.
- What if I am single?
Relationship Coaching is about ALL of your relationships...including your relationship to yourself. Relationship Mastery coaching will focus on the areas of your personal & relationship life that you want to improve. We will discuss dating and partnership as it fits your current situation and values.
