Founder, Blossom Counseling and Wellness
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 Keiko Wolfe, a Licensed Professional Counselor and the founder of Blossom Counseling and Wellness based in Collegeville, Pennsylvania. She is licensed in the states of Pennsylvania and South Dakota and also provides life coaching to clients nationwide.

“We really approach things as more of a solution-oriented and solution-focused approach and more of a strengths-based approach rather than the traditional approaches that might be a little more pathologizing, deficits-based, or problem focused. […] We try to make it more motivational and strengths-based. Instead of asking questions like, ‘Tell me about your traumas,’ we will specifically ask, ‘What do you think are some of your strengths? What are some things you do really well? What would you like to do more of?'”
