Coaching with Joe

Coaching with Joe

"But we can change our worldviews. We can expand and revise. If we can muster the courage. Pruning is what mature people do. "

Coaching Philosophy

My ideal client is a goal-oriented individual who wants help to get where they wish to be. They are someone solid enough to be okay with being pushed and prodded in the context of a caring and supportive relationship. They are a lifelong learner needing help

My coaching sessions are a mixture of listening, teaching, reframing, alternative perspective making, strength assessment, challenge, self-disclosure, encouragement, humor, stories, metaphors, referral to external resources (books, podcasts, music, movies), utilization of resources (assignments, tools), and accountability.

It is very important to me that my clients feel respected and encouraged. I believe that my role is to really listen to my clients and help them feel understood while also giving significant amounts of feedback and interaction. My coaching approach is a mixture of being a confidante, coach, cheerleader, teacher, and accountability partner.

What to expect?

  • What is the difference between coaching and therapy?

    Therapy is often a long-term treatment process aimed at facilitating healing/change regarding trauma or various kinds of pathology (psychological disorders). Coaching is a professional relationship that tends to be more short-term and is oriented around facilitating and supporting personal and/or professional growth.

    Therapy is diagnosis-based and is aimed at helping you solve personal flaws, problems, and deficits. Coaching is meant to help a person clarify goals, identify obstacles, and create action plans.

    Therapy is provided by a licensed healthcare professional. Coaching doesn’t require a license.

    Therapy usually involves utilization of a patient’s healthcare insurance and partial payments from the patient. Coaching only requires direct payment from the client.
