Is there something holding you back from accomplishing your goals? If so, life coaching may be ideal for you. People often ask me the difference between therapy and life coaching. Coaching tends to focus on the present and future rather than the past. As a coach, I help people identify their goals and the obstacles they are facing. Like therapy, coaching involves guidance and support, but it also places a great deal of emphasis on accountability. This enables you to do more under my guidance than you might achieve on your own.

Life Coaching Counseling NYC

Life coaching is great for folks who have a good degree of self awareness and are ready to change for the better. Working together, career and life goals are discussed and an action plan for change is produced. The coaching relationship can help anyone become the best they can be. Great issues for life coaching are excelling at your current career, launching a business or a side hustle, and getting back into the work force after a leave. Other issues may include work/life balance, organizational challenges, getting your health in optimal shape, empowerment, self-confidence building and leadership.

Early Signs:

Relationships rarely die overnight. Almost always, the destruction of a couple happens little by little, over time.
Your relationship may be in trouble if you are experiencing:

  • Communication breakdown
  • Diminished sexual desire and activity level
  • Replaying old arguments and resurrecting old hurts
  • Resentment and contempt have replaced patience and love
  • One or both of you are having an affair


We saw Rachel when we were engaged and having major in-law problems that were interfering with the planning of our wedding. We were bickering a lot and couldn’t seem to resolve these problems on our own, and that’s why we decided to go for counseling. Rachel helped us to discuss these problems without being defensive, and taught us that we had a right to set limits with our families. We found the process very helpful, and we continue to call on her when our relationship needs a tune up.
