2. Coaching Services

In addition to keynotes and workshops, Dr. Dinardo offers psychology coaching and education sessions to individuals and groups. This is not therapy. It is a brief solution-focused approach to a specific situation.

How is a coaching different from therapy?

  • Therapy is more open-ended, long-term, and focuses primarily on the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of mental illness.
  • Coaching includes clear specific goals related to purpose, strengths, growth, and self actualization. This approach is more education based.
