Understanding Behavioral Health Coaching:

A Behavioral Health Coach focuses more on the present rather than the past, and helps clients to identify and manage unhealthy behavioral patterns. We help clients to improve self-awareness, boundary setting, and resiliency which may improve relationships and reduce anxiety and depression.
Behavioral health coaches do not diagnose or treat mental illness or addictions. Coaching is not an effective option for those who are in crisis, actively addicted, struggling with mental illness, unable to care for themselves, or unmotivated to change. Coaching is, however, a viable option for those who are stable emotionally and willing to improve self-awareness, set goals, and be action-oriented.
