According to Dr. Leah B. Mazzola (Youth Coaching Institute) Coaches and therapists share a common goal – to enhance well-being and outcomes for those they serve.

Some therapists are also coaches. Some coaches are also therapists. Deciding which is the best fit for the client, depends on their current state of functioning and their needs and goals. Keep in mind, the same client may work with a therapist and a coach to address different needs and goals – if the client’s clinical issue is well-managed.

The therapist may work with the client to address the clinical issue, such as depression, while the coach works with the client around goals that matter to ongoing progress, such as finding clarity around job or career direction or improving academic performance.


•The patient is struggling with dysfunction related to psychological issues, concerns, or symptoms that interfere with daily tasks.

•The client wants to be better, grow, or set and achieve higher goals.

Therapists often refer clients to coaches as a next level of support. Therapists help clients get back to normalcy and begin moving onto thriving. Coaches can pick up the work from there, to support clients as they continue to set and achieve meaningful goals and build skills for ongoing success.
