Therapy vs. Coaching

Psychotherapy is a common practice in the treatment of mental health issues and psychological diagnoses. Some common disorders for which psychotherapy would be most appropriate are the following: depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, PTSD, OCD and phobias. Coaching/consulting is an approach that is often more appropriate for individuals who may not meet criteria for a mental health diagnosis, but are seeking to maximize their full potential, gain skills, develop insight or make meaningful changes in their lives.


Although both services are offered, it would be important to assess which option would be the best fit for the client. In initial evaluation and introduction, therapy and consulting options can be reviewed and explored. Appropriate referrals will be made in cases when psychotherapeutic needs differ from Dr. Faith’s training and specialty.
