I have been so fortunate to work with Chris for the last year; she is a highly talented coach who really cares about her clients. Before I began working with Chris I was plagued with self-doubt and resignation in my personal and professional life and could not see a way to break out of the slump and move forward. I'm so glad I found her when I did. Chris has an amazing intuition and perceptiveness; even when I wasn't able to articulate things she could understand what I really desired and who I really am. Through her supportive listening, thought exercises, and goal-setting, she helped me to develop a self-awareness that I can use to shift to a more empowering and compassionate attitude. I also benefited from her perspective and insights that come from her decades of experience as a leader. She has been a great cheerleader to me and helped me cultivate the tools to get unstuck and finally land the job I was looking for. I am grateful to her that I now have these tools for the rest of my life! I would highly recommend her for anyone who is ready to take on creating meaningful change. Kim

After grad school, Gina has successfully assisted me in finding a job in academia and continues to follow up with prospective opportunities. She has helped me to polish my cover letters, C.V., Teaching Philosophy, and Departmental Vision documents. In addition, I've felt confident with phone and in-person interviews, and extremely prepared for campus visits using her strategic techniques. THANK YOU, Gina!!

    I recently took a swimming lesson with Gina Johnson in preparation for the U.S. Coast Guards. I couldn't be happier after my first lesson. Gina broke the technique down so I could understand why I was doing what I was being coached to do, which to me is key. By the end of the lesson I already felt I was moving through the water more efficiently. In the future we will be drilling the technique in different ways to make my movement instinctive. This will allow me to utilize the techniques without having to think about it. I am confident I will be going into the Coast Guards with an edge because of Gina.

    After working with Dana, I am pursuing a career that fits me perfectly by following a plan we created together. One of the things that surprised me most about working with Dana was that she allowed me to discover what career options were even possible. When I first started working with Dana, I was kind of directionless in where my life was headed. I had a kind of idea of what I wanted to pursue and was passively working towards that goal but I knew I lacked passion. Once Dana and I worked together a little more, she made me get real honest with myself about what I actually wanted out of life and for the first time in my life, pursue a career that actually fit me. Once I had actually settled on a career choice, we collaborated on a plan to make that choice a reality for me. I highly recommend working with Dana if you aren't sure what kind of life you want, or if you do know what you want, she will guide you on how to achieve it.

      Zaneta (pronounced Juh-nett-uh) approaches her Conciousness Intervention coaching from a very deep and sacred meditative place. She has a delightful European style and a refreshing Czech accent that is easy to listen too. I wasn't looking for a traditional coach to give me more lines, goals and structures, and I was not looking for another psychologist to empty my emotions on. I found her because I was looking for someone to help me jump start myself into becoming more conscious in my daily professional and private life. At her recommendation, I took a yoga class from her first (I try to practice yoga occasionally) and I found that it was very helpful to calm my mind and be open and receptive prior to our coaching session. Once we started, she encouraged me to really go inside myself with a short meditation and some deep breathing to leave the chatter of my job and the world behind. The session was centered on me and I was quickly able to identify some places where I was getting stuck with previously unidentified fears. I also discovered several opportunities for my personal growth. I felt very clean , open and centered afterward. I was impressed with her as a teacher. I will definitely repeat.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      What is a career coach?

      If you’re interested in furthering your career and want expert help, a career coach is a smart solution. A career coach is a professional you hire to guide you during a job search or a career transition, or to help you improve and advance in your current position. A career coach analyzes your work situation and learns what your professional goals are. They then create a strategy to help you achieve your targets. Throughout the process they should provide objective feedback and guide you in approaching the process strategically. Here are some of the tools and tasks a career coach may assist you with:

      • Helping you build a strong resume that reflects your work history, potential, and skills
      • Coaching for interviews and strategies for solid answers built around your resume and the target job
      • Defining your career goals
      • Creating a plan for job searching
      • Improving networking strategies and skills
      • Developing strategies for negotiating raises or promotions
      • Assessing why you’re not getting where you want to go
      • Identifying new positions or career opportunities that fit your skills

      Why is career counseling important?

      Career counseling can help you discover your career path, help you overcome challenges preventing you from finding happiness in your job, or help you learn more about career opportunities that are available to you. Career counselors are typically counselors who specialize in helping guide people into their best career choices. As professionals, they have typically completed a master’s degree in counseling with a focus on career counseling and bring a nuanced understanding of the emotional blocks that prevent someone from doing what they love or getting ahead in their current position. Here are some of the ways that career counseling can help:

      • Identify your skills and talents and how they correlate to different career paths
      • Educate you about the educational requirements for launching in various careers and what earnings can look like
      • Help you understand the kind of environment you want to work in, and which careers are best suited for that
      • See opportunities to transfer your existing skill set to other career areas
      • Help you identify causes of tension or unhappiness in your current career and how to overcome those difficulties
      • Help you create a game plan for moving forward
      • Provide a safe space for you to understand your feelings about career choices you’re making

      How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

      A career coach provides one-on-one sessions to help you reach your career goals or overcome any challenges you’re having in your career path. The cost to have career coaching can vary based on factors such as the number of sessions you purchase at one time and the experience and rates of your counselor. Career counselors are typically professionals who have earned at least a master’s degree in their field. Based on their academic background, supplemental certifications they have received, and any postdoctoral work they have done, their rates may vary. Typically career counselors offer reduced rates when you sign on for their services on an ongoing basis. A typical price range for career counseling services (nationally) could be $75-$150 per session. Remember to always ask if the career counselor offers a complimentary introductory session. You want to make sure the relationship will be the right personality and counseling style fit to help launch your confidence and upcoming career changes.

      How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

      When it’s time to take your career to the next level, it’s time to hire a career coach. The cost to have a career coach help you with your professional journey will vary based on how many sessions you require, the level of coaching you desire, and the rates of the coach as determined by their experience, expertise, education and training. On average, career coaching sessions can range from 60 to 120 minutes, depending on the professional and what your needs are. Career coaches in smaller towns and areas with a lower cost of living will also typically have lower rates than those residing in large metro areas like New York, although most do offer remote coaching. Many coaches also offer a free introductory consultation, which gives you the opportunity to determine if their personality and coaching style are the right fit. It’s helpful to ask the coach about their relevant experience and get references from former clients. Depending on the professional, session rates could range anywhere from under $60 to well over $250 per session. Package discounts are a good way to commit to the relationship as well as get savings on services.

      What is a career counselor?

      If you’re feeling lost in your career path, overwhelmed, in need of a job but confused as where to start, or ready for change but uncertain what you want, a career counselor is a good choice for you. A career counselor is typically a licensed professional who has earned a master’s degree in counseling — likely with an emphasis on career counseling. Each state has different licensing requirements for career counselors, so be sure to research before reaching out to a pro.

      Due to their academic backgrounds, career counselors often have a more holistic and in-depth approach than a career coach. Career coaches are not regulated by states and also tend to be more business-focused — a good fit for those who know what they want but need help achieving it. On the other hand, a career counselor provides guidance and clarity around some of the more emotional aspects that job hunting and career movement entail. Career counselors meet with you in a series of one-on-one sessions. They assess your personality and learn what drives you. They get a detailed understanding of your work history and your hopes, and often work to help you discover any internal blocks preventing you from going where you want to go. Hiring a career counselor is appropriate at any time in your career, from recent graduate to executive-level management.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
