Coaching vs. Psychotherapy

There are some key differences between Coaching (what I do) and Psychotherapy.  Here are some of those differences:

  • A coach:

    • Does not diagnose psychological conditions, syndromes or diseases.

    • Does not treat psychological conditions, syndromes or diseases.

    • Does not accept health insurance, which requires licensure as a psychotherapist in order to provide a diagnosis to the insurance provider.
       

  • A licensed psychotherapist:​

    • Can diagnose​ psychological conditions, syndromes or diseases.

    • Can treat psychological conditions, syndromes or diseases.

    • Can accept health insurance, because they can provide a psychological diagnosis to the insurance provider.
