Catholic Coaching

“Life-style coaching” has been a profession for a number of years and continues to grow in popularity. I understand this trend as a licensed therapist in Minnesota because of the clients we see at the clinic, some of whom do not need therapy but desire to grow in a deeper relationship with God and others. To be sure, there will always be a need for well-trained licensed therapists who practice Catholic counseling. And Catholic Coaching is not meant to replace Catholic-based therapy.

But now Catholic Coaching offers a remarkable new option for those who do not need counseling but who want to live life more abundantly. This is the heart of Catholic Coaching: to help empower people to sort out current issues in order to live a more vibrant present and future in Christ.

Coaching is different from counseling. With coaching there is no psychiatric work, no diagnoses, and no “treatment plan.” People who see me now as a coach are generally functioning at a high level but want more out of life and their relationships. We all know that we cannot grow in a vacuum, and that is where Catholic Coaching can be a transformational relationship for many people.

I have been very blessed to work with a number of Catholic vocations: Clergy, Married couples, Catholic business owners, Catholic stay-at-home parents, and Catholic Doctors, and any one desiring the abundant life that Christ discusses in John 10:10. You are not the exception to the promise in John 10:10!

As a Catholic Coach I believe that the Holy Spirit provides the insight and helps me to use the critical thinking and objective listening skills that God has given me to empower people to become experts on themselves and their relationships. I remember coaching a Catholic Doctor who told me that “in four months of Coaching my relationships are four times better.” This affirmed for me that the Holy Spirit used our relationship to bring about insight and growth.

Catholic Coaching is usually done over the phone in half-hour to 45 min. sessions.
