Licensed Psychotherapist and Certified Professional Coach
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 Karen Carlucci, a Licensed Psychotherapist and Certified Professional Coach based in New York City.

“What [the Buddhist philosophy] boils down to, for me, is about detachment from expectations. Detachment from control. Detachment from “This is what I’m supposed to be doing, and if I don’t, then what am I? Who am I? Do I end up failing? Am I then unworthy?” That type of self-narrative is what causes so much suffering for so many people. I think a lot of therapeutic work is like this, whether you’re calling it Buddhist philosophy or not.”
