After over 15 years of being in the field of psychotherapy, Lee Chaix McDonough decided to pivot and shift her skill set after a major life transition. When they moved from Germany back to the US after her husband retired from the military and he bought a dental practice, she decided to press pause on her professional career to help her family transition to civilian life and to assist her husband in growing his business.
As she immersed herself in understanding the mindset of owning and running a business, she became more and more interested in combining her strengths of intuitive work and coaching. From there, she started her coaching business: Coach with Clarity.
Lee is the CEO and Founder of Coach With Clarity, a business coaching and training company. She became credentialed as a coach through the International Coach Federation and now provides ICF-accredited continuing coach education for intuitive, heart-centered coaches. She is also the host of the Coach with Clarity podcast and author of the #1 Amazon book, ACT On Your Business: Braving the storms of entrepreneurship and creating success through meaning, mindset, and mindfulness.
In this week’s episode, Lee discusses how she got started, how coaching is different than counseling, things you need to consider if you want to add coaching to your services, why it’s important to niche down and define your audience, and do you really need a coaching certification? Lee covers these points and much more!

I want to tell you about a group I created on Facebook, it’s called the talk therapist lounge and it’s a place where talk therapists can find podcast guest opportunities! That’s right! If you are a licensed talk therapist and you are looking to grow your reach and visibility, this group may be a place for you to start.
I’m working to bring in podcast hosts who are looking to interview licensed clinicians that can share their expertise and knowledge with their audiences.
Why should you be a podcast guest? People are crawling all over the internet, listening to podcasts and watching videos on mental health issues. My mission is to help spread the word about mental health treatment and help lower the stigma around mental health and to do that we need to get you guys out there sharing your knowledge and wisdom and how you help people live their best lives. And it will help you grow your brand and visibility and possibly help you gain new clients.
