Life Coaching and Telehealth

Make a Change and Move Forward

If you are stuck between a rock and a hard place or simply want to talk about options on how you want to process something going on in your life, a life coach can help you  pinpoint the blocks or obstacles that are making you feel “stuck” and help you to move through them, guide you through a life transition, such as finding a new career, end or begin a new relationship. You might call me a “change facilitator” or a “courage catalyst”. While I may offer you suggestions, new ideas or action steps, I am not an advice-giver. Instead, I listen to you and ask you the right questions to help you find your path, your truth, and your answers. I help you to align your life with who you are and what you want. A life coach helps you to accomplish your goals, make new changes, and live your dreams.

I offer services as “coaching” as it allows me to reach clients that would not otherwise reach out for help. Some consumers are reluctant to attend therapy, but are willing to meet with a coach. This service is also great for those who want to keep off "Diagnosis Radar". This means there is no paper trail to connect you to asking for help, no diagnosis, no insurance interference with your career. Many of my highly private clients go this route. Life coaches do not document any sessions/diagnosis/reports to turn in to insurance companies because coaching is not paid for by insurance companies. 

In addition, because of the legal challenges involved with doing therapy across state lines (licensure laws are different from one state to the next, with many states effectively not allowing telehealth to be provided by therapists licensed in another state), I offer services under a coaching framework. LIfe coaching is offered on a sliding scale depending on how often communication is used. FaceTime, texting, voice calls and in person sessions are all included in a per use, weekly or monthly charge. 

Telehealth with insurance or through coaching is very convenient for people with high anxiety about leaving the house, a tight budget and can't afford the extra time and costs of going to a location, difficulty finding child or adult care, and great for those who travel as they are snowbirds, working on the road or those who love to travel. 

Some insurance companies do cover Telehealth for therapy, now. More and more are getting on the wagon on this type of support for their customers. Some even cover the therapist as you travel across state lines. Some insurance companies require the therapist to be licensed in each state that yo
