Lifechanging Growth Coaching Services
Lifechanging Growth offers life coaching services to help you find your life purpose and mission, follow your dreams, and achieve your personal goals.
Life coaching is different than counseling or therapy. Life coaching helps emotionally healthy people get from a place of feeling stuck to the place they want to be. Life coaching focuses on the present, not the past.
(Counseling is for individuals who struggle with mental health issues such as depression and anxiety. If you have a current struggle with sadness, grief, worry, then you will be referred to a local therapist for mental health services. Life coaching is not therapy, and will begin when you are emotionally whole, strong, and healthy.)
