Founder, The Counseling Center of Maryland
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 Marjorie Kreppel, a licensed counselor and the founder of The Counseling Center of Maryland.

“Every step along the way, I never thought, “This is gonna take five years!” because by the time you go through the whole process and do your internships and get your restricted licensure with supervision, etc…you can’t look at “how long.” You have to look at where you are right now, this one step. And before I knew it, it was done. I was finished. […] If you just stay in this moment with the very next thing, you could change careers at any time.”
