Clinical Director, Centered Mind Therapy
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 Shaudi Adel, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the states of New York and California. She is the Clinical Director at Centered Mind Therapy.

“If a mental health issue is really on the forefront for [a potential client], then let’s go the therapy route. Let’s get things in a better place, let’s stabilize symptoms, and then we can get into coaching with a life coach and up the wellness because that wellness is already established.”
