Dr. William DeFoore
Licensed Professional Counselor, Coach, and Author
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 Dr. William DeFoore, a Licensed Professional Counselor, Coach, and Author based in Denton, Texas.

- The story behind the Goodfinding newsletter and how it came about
- Why life experience, even more than academics, has informed Dr. DeFoore’s therapy work
“I developed Goodfinding as a way of pointing to an activity of the human mind that is not instinctive, yet tremendously powerful, innovative, and creative. The instinctive activity of the human mind is like traditional psychology — what’s wrong, and how do we fix it? […] The higher brain function kicks in when we start looking at what’s good, what’s right, and what’s working. In other words, goodfinding.”
