Psychologists have the most training of any profession in understanding human motivation, behavior, learning and change," says Jeffrey E. Auerbach, PhD, founder and president of the College of Executive Coaching, which trains only those with graduate degrees and uses psychological theory as a guide. "And if they've done clinical work, they have a depth of one-on-one experience far greater than that of people who aren't mental health professionals. Coaching is actually a great fit with what most of us already do." (APA November 2010, Vol 41, No. 10)
Over the years, Coach Dr. Susie has achieved extraordinary success in providing a warm, nonjudgmental environment utilizing proactive, practical, and collaborative skills with a customized approach for each client versus the traditional psychotherapy framework.
