The difference between a life coach and therapist is that a life coach works with clients in order to help them clarify goals and identify obstacles and problematic behaviors in order to create action plans to achieve desired results. The process of coaching takes the client’s current status as an acceptable neutral ground and is focused on moving the client forward from that point.  Coaches provide a distinct service that helps clients work on their goals for the future and create a new path to a rich, meaningful and happy life.  While the emphasis is on behaviors and goal achievement, as clients achieve their goals and improve their health and wellness behaviors, they will naturally become happier, more content and satisfied in their relationships.

I have a strong background in motivational enhancement and behavior modification and approach all coaching whether it is business or health related, from a biopsychosocial perspective.  I will help you become aware of your strengths to capitalize on them, your vulnerabilities to mitigate or prevent them, and your motivators to maintain them. From there you can identify and achieve realistic goals.


Counseling and coaching services can cost on average $65/hour, and most people have to pay out of pocket because their insurance deductibles are so high, or they do not have coverage.  $260/month is a lot of money for most people.   A membership at will allow you to access Dr. Snipes via live video-based group for as little as $25/month.  These groups will help you set and achieve your goals for health and happiness, increase and maintain your motivation and provide you information about tools you can use to be more effective.  If you think you need a little bit more help, the Plus package lets you chat via text message with Doc Snipes 7 days a week from 3pm-8pm EST.  This can help you apply what you learned in group and keep you motivated.

Discounts on Counseling and Coaching Services for Members

Dr. Snipes is licensed in Florida (LMHC #6261) and Tennessee (LPC-MHSP #3001) and can provide “counseling” services to members in those states through secure video conferencing.  She can also provide “coaching” services to members in all states.*


Once you have made your purchase,  you will get a welcome email with Doc Snipes' private chat page.  You can text her there to arrange an appointment.

Note: These services are not appropriate for a crisis situation or if you are feeling suicidal or homicidal.  In those cases, contact your local crisis hotline, go to the nearest emergency room or contact local law enforcement to assist you.

*Coaching services do not involve the diagnosis or treatment of a mental health disorder.  Instead, you have identified what your presenting issue is and have an idea about how you want to address it, but need some assistance implementing YOUR plan and staying motivated.

**Counseling services can only be provided by a therapist who is licensed in the state in which the patient resides, and in the state in which he or she resides if they are different.
