Do you need Coaching or Counseling?

Oasis provides both coaching or counseling with clients.  If you have long-standing psychological issues, trauma, depression or anxiety, these are concerns for mental health therapy, or counseling.  You might say that this is “remediation” that is needed to help you function better in your work, relationships and life.  If you are doing ok, or well, and want to bring more of your passions, strengths, and purpose into your life – coaching helps you do this.

My work with emotional healing falls in a bit of a gray area, because we all have emotions that we may want to “clear” to bring more joy and fulfillment into our lives.  As a mental health counselor, I will assess whether coaching or counseling is right for you.
