Licensed Professional Counselor
Welcome to another episode of The Coach’s Circle Podcast!
Our show is all about showing you everything the world of coaching has to offer–what it is, what it isn’t, and whether it might be the right career choice for you.
Through our conversations with professionals in a variety of different mental health and wellness fields, you’ll gain valuable, real-world insight into their careers and consider how their experiences might impact your own career choices. Our interviews will feature coaches, therapists, counselors, personal trainers, and other professionals who incorporate coaching into their practices. Our hope is that these varied perspectives will help you come to understand exactly the type of coach you were meant to be.
Today’s special guest is Karl Memmer, a Licensed Professional Counselor and the owner of Resilience Counseling & Social Skills Center in Glen Allen, Virginia.
- Where therapy and coaching meet and diverge
- The importance of resilience for positive mental health
- How COVID-19 has ushered in an era of telehealth and remote therapy
- COVID’s silver lining that has helped expand Karl’s practice
“We live in a very tech-dense world, and one of the last remaining analog things was going to meet with your therapist for an hour a week. […] But there’s a silver lining in everything. Because our therapists were licensed in the state of Virginia, we were only drawing on [that] clientele. Now we have clients from all over the state and we’ve surpassed where we were in March.”
