Therapy vs. Coaching

Tori is a Certified Life Coach in addition to being a Licensed Associate Counselor, so she is able to provide both life coaching and therapy; however, she cannot mix the two. In order to work together, let's determine whether you are interested in life coaching or therapy.

 

First thing - Tori is licensed to provide therapy only in the state of Arkansas, aka you must be physically present in the state of Arkansas for therapy sessions. With life coaching, you can work with Tori regardless of where you reside.

 

The major difference between therapy and life coaching is the focus of the work. Therapy focuses on mental health and the treatment of mental illnesses, while life coaching focuses on setting and achieving goals. Therapy is more about deep emotional healing and life coaching is more about here-and-now behavioral interventions/strategies.

 

Life coaching starts in the present and moves forward to achieve goals.

 

Therapy deals with how your past has impacted the present.
