Benefits of In-Home Coaching vs Therapy

We understand that reaching out for professional help can be overwhelming and feel vulnerable.  This decision can also be challenging logistically as we often have such busy schedules. This is one reason in-home coaching may be the best option for you and your family.  We go to you and meet in the comfort and convenience of your homeThis saves you time from having to drive from one place to another.  Perhaps more importantly is that meeting in the safety of your own home will likely help you and your family feel comfortable causing you to open up more quickly and allow you to get the help you are looking for and meet your goals sooner rather than later.  Our sessions are 90 minutes rather than the traditional 50 minutes, allowing time for everyone to share.

what people say about us

“After starting off somewhat skeptical we quickly learned new communication skills and dumped bad habits. Lisa’s style of “coaching” was very different than any therapy we had experienced in the past.  Lisa Smith is a very gifted, caring family counselor.  Her “Save My Family Today” practice name could not be more appropriate.  She gave us great practical advice and was very insightful as to our family dynamics.  She bonded quickly with all of us and helped our family with strategies to deal with some difficult issues.  Highly recommended!”
