What’s the difference between a counselor and coach?

Counseling often looks to the past to frame issues and gain deeper understanding, while coaching tends to be solution oriented and goal driven, aiming the client to get where they want to be as quickly as possible.  A coaching relationship will focus on setting measurable and attainable goals along with creating a plan to meet the defined goals. Coaches do not diagnose, nor do they treat mental and emotional disorders. Should those need surfacing in the course of a coaching relationship, a referral is made for professional assessment. Since no illness is involved, Coaches do not bill insurances and tend to have fees which are comparable to those of counseling staff.

Kevin’s favorite activities include being a passionate Christ-follower, loving Husband, and spiritual leader for his family.  His hobbies include exercise/fitness, fishing, hunting, and spending time outdoors

“People behave based on what they believe, and not what they know. This is precisely why behavior modification and self-help practices are short-term solutions. When a person identifies and eliminates false beliefs, true transformation will occur. This process can be very challenging and complex. An effective coach will help an individual successfully navigate this journey.” – Kevin Hover
