Honestly I had no idea I was working with him! I had seemed his service in requesting help with my health and with my career. I was instantly drawn to him and felt like I could open up with him! I can’t say it was an easy route bc by far it wasn’t! This experience has been by far one of the hardest obstacles I’ve ever had to encounter! I’ve been back in school and pretty much training myself through the whole process or at least it felt like I was alone struggling to make this happen but I’m now realizing that I have a whole Network of people on my side! You guys have given me what they call tough Love! I feel like a renewed & young again (speaking of mentally!) LoL I am just getting started! Have a whole life ahead of me! I’ll never be done learning! Always be helping, contributing, giving, achieveing and being all I can be! If for some reason I fail at a job I’ll still have my children and my children are the most important thing in this world to me! I’ve lost my twin sister years back and my life has been downward since then! John , thank you for that tough Loving! They are the reason I’ve changed! I thank God everyday for helping me to overcome my issues I once had! I look forward to coaching right along side of John! We all need to start helping one another even the small things can make a huge difference ! Anyone like to join in on change?! All is welcome! I’d like to thank all of those that were involved! God Bless each and everyone of you! To everyone’s success! Few others I’d like to mention , Palm beach Research Group, Marketers Traders Institute, Social Security, NBC, CBS, Funnel X Project, Go Daddy,Click Bank, Sen,.....there’s many many more!

I don't usually write reviews but I am compelled to do today. I've been blessed to work with Debi for at least 10 years, through the years she has become my mentor, my wise woman and my balance adjuster. You know how you want to read all the help books that you see on Amazon or at a bookstore but you never actually get to? Well, Debi has read them all! You know how you need someone wise to push you to a solution or path that you already know is yours? Debi will know exactly what is best and objectively show you the way! My life has been a fabulous journey and many thanks for that to Debi. I've gotten praise, I've gotten a kick in the butt and the kind hug of all ver wisdom when I needed it the most. Bring everything to the table with this lady- career, relationships, the dilemmas of life and of course personal goals and resolution of conflicts and all will be so much better and it will just all flow. You will feel better and sturdier as you walk out her door.

Melissa's enthusiasm and positivity is infectious and present in everything she brings to the table. She's helped me question and think deeply about what I truly want in life, in both my career and my well being. She's pushed me outside of my comfort zone, and I've grown immensely. I highly recommend Melissa for anyone who is at a crossroads about their future!

Nicole played a big role in my career development. My issues have been trying to focus on what I want to do and how to do it, and working with Nicole on those issues put me on the right path for success. What I love about Nicole is that she forces you to see the big picture, ask yourself the hard (but necessary) questions, and then identify the steps to reach your goals. I look forward to using Nicole again when I need to navigate life and career changes, which I anticipate will reduce my fear of making those changes, knowing I have her in my back pocket.

I've been working with Arya for about 18 months and I could not be happier with my experience. In our sessions, we focus primarily on how to navigate potential career opportunities and how to understand behavioral patterns that may hinder personal and professional relationships. Without question, his coaching has completely changed the way I understand myself, my behaviors, and the way I hope to interact with the world. He has a pragmatic approach to meeting me where I am, whether that be practical tips to reduce anxiety at work or coping with uncertainty and risk about major life decisions. The sessions have become increasingly more insightful as he learns more and more about me. As others have mentioned, he's also extremely kind, open-hearted, and trained to tackle a spectrum of life's challenges. Far and away the best coach/therapist/spiritual advisor I have ever encountered.

I am so happy I decided on Larri Ann! She was a referral off of Thumbtack. This was my very first psychic phone reading. It was truly an amazing experience for me, both mind-blowing and comforting at the same time. I found my reading to be incredibly accurate and Larri Ann picked up on so much about me. I really felt like she knew me with the details she provided about my life, my past, the kind of person I am, and my future possibilities. For me it was a life-changing experience as it confirmed a lot of feelings I had about certain areas of my life. I had questions and was a little nervous about the answers. Larri Ann made me feel confortable and I felt she answered honestly and with the best of intentions, and there was nothing I could not handle hearing. I was anxious and very unsure of what I was about to find out. I sought guidance in each area of my life. Larri Ann took all the questions and answered them in a way that I now have a clear sense of direction in my career, my socially life and my relationship. Larri Ann is completely genuine, sincere, and professional and I highly recommend her to everyone! I will definitely have another reading in the future! Lu

A friend recommended that I approach Beth when I was considering a career transition from a senior research role at a Washington, DC-based foreign policy think tank. Beth's assistance has been invaluable. She has helped me frame a strategy to guide my job search that's built around a detailed appraisal of my skills and interests. Beth's experience working in different sectors means she has a lot of fresh insights and contacts to share. Her advice has improved the way I have conducted my job search and expanded my network in the process. Beth is very personable, an excellent listener, and is brimming with good ideas. I appreciate her enthusiasm and always leave our conversations feeling energized.

KT's healing and manifestation techniques are fast, effective and powerful. I sought out theta healing to help me release strong emotions during a time of transition and grief. After our session I felt light and empowered. My wish for a new meaningful job was manifested within a few weeks, and every day I feel more aligned to my life path. I highly recommend KT as a theta healing practitioner.

I reached out to Timur at a time in my running career when I needed some guidance in reassessing my relationship with the sport. I had been training for the Olympic Trials and had experienced a particularly disappointing season, which had left me searching for a new approach. Timur was just what I was looking for. He was able to bring his background in therapy, his own experience as an elite athlete, and his martial arts techniques into our sessions. He created a safe space for self-discovery and growth. We delved into advanced body awareness, technical aspects of running, meditation, flow-state running, race planning, and even play. I walked away from our weekly sessions with tools for life, in addition to running. At the end of our time together, I had found the shift in my relationship to running that I had been seeking, thanks to Timur. I would recommend him to any runner, no matter what your experience level. He facilitates a relationship with running that is deep, meaningful, and sustainable. A rare find!

Cynthia worked with me as a life coach for a couple months. I had talked with a few life/career coaches here and there, and Cynthia was the only one I wanted and chose to work with due to her professionalism, integrity, intelligence and creativity. Even if I was confused or pessimistic, she would work tirelessly to find the positive qualities and kernels of truth I could build on and work from.

Lisa helped me uncover and take action on my life vision. Every area of my life has seen big changes in alignment with that vision. I’ve strengthened my marriage, stepped away from a 25 year career in Human Resources, built a company I’m passionate about and found balance in my life. Lisa’s approach is no nonsense and honest. She has an amazing way of keeping you focused on your dream, one step at a time … next thing you know you’re living it.

I have known Reverend Lucinda Martin for over 5 years and have had the blessing to receive spiritual guidance from her in many aspects of my life. I first met her when I was looking for someone to officiate my wedding. It was very important to my fiancé and I to have an outdoor wedding but still keep Catholic Tradition in our cermony. Upon meeting Lucinda, I immediately felt her passion and love for helping others in their spiritual path. She is warm, open and non judgemental. This was essential to me in my search. After seeing how beautiful our cermony was I decided to start both individual and couples spiritual guidance sessions. In the sessions I learned new tools on how to navigate my life in a more peaceful and serene way. One of my favorites is the spiritual mind treatment. Spiritual mind treatment is a format of writing out a prayer to release wounds, hurts and bring forth virtues you want. This process has drawn me closer to my Catholic Faith and enriched my life in so many ways. I continued on in my journey with Lucinda. I received career guidance, a celebration of life when my beloved bunny died and many tools to navigate life's challenges in a more peaceful way. I know I would not be where I'm at now, without Lucinda's love, support and guidance. I strongly recommend her in all her services. She is a non biased person that has helped me grow in all aspects of my faith journey. If you are looking for a deeper connection in faith, an interfaith wedding officient, career guidance, celebration of life, or simply a satchel of tools to navigate through life in a spiritually balanced way; I urge you to go with Lucinda. Blessings to you in your journey. Lauren W

I have previously worked with 2 coaches with varying experiences. Stacey, however, belongs to the subset of well-equipped and extremely competent coaches. I have been working with Stacey in a weekly hour long session since October 2016. She truly raises the bar by combining career, well-being, and life coaching. Her holistic approach to coaching allows for her (and myself) to see the bigger picture as she helps me to chip away at my goals and aspirations. Another quality that makes her stand out is how she presents information to me in a way that allows me to come to a solution through my own efforts. Often times I find myself hearing her voice in my head and using her (sometimes unrelated) knowledge to find a solution to challenges I have building my business. The direction and feeling of "being on the right track" that I've gained from working with Stacey has been a blessing. I appreciate each and every coaching session. I know that I will carry her knowledge and wisdom with me throughout my journey. I would highly recommend!

Amanda is a great yoga instructor! She is always on time and ready to help me jump start my mornings bright and early every Tuesday and Thursday. I needed an instructor to come to my home to get me motivated to get my body moving consistently and Amanda has been my rock through the transition of getting up early to exercise. I had not practiced in years and am so happy to have Amanda to get me on my feet again. She is motivating, changes it up, and pays attention to form. She even gave me a yoga workout with awesome visuals to use to motivate me to practice while on vacation! I would highly recommend Amanda's yoga services.

Claudine Woo is an amazing mentor and career coach. She is intuitive, compassionate, and works with you to establish pragmatic and tangible solutions to help you achieve your professional goals. Claudine has been a constant source of support, and an authentic guiding voice on a career path that has been anything but clear. I recommend Claudine especially if you find yourself balancing multiple passions, and looking for a path that may not be as visible for you as it is for others.

      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

      What is a life coach?

      A professional, accredited life coach works with people to help them make important changes in their life, either growing in their profession or changing gears in their personal lives. They help clients turn their dreams or wishes into realistic, attainable goals. They guide people through the process of making life changes by helping them evaluate the steps they must take to reach a particular goal, then help them decide how — and whether — to take those steps in the most efficient, effective and rewarding way possible. A life coach acts as a motivator, strategist and accountability partner. Unlike a therapist, a life coach doesn’t help solve problems from your past — they’re focused on helping you move forward with new ways of acting and thinking that will help you reach your goals. Some people specialize in particular types of life coaching, including life balancing coaches, small business coaches, executive coaches and personal finance coaches. Some meet clients in person, while others hold consultations over the phone.

      Regardless of which type of life coach you’re interested in, make sure the person holds an International Coach Federation (ICF) credential. There are three tiers of credentials: Associate, Professional and Master, which require coaching experience ranging from 100 hours to 2,500 hours.

      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 a life coach cost?

      A life coach helps clients set and reach professional and personal goals, develop positive habits, and deal with stress. Some people meet with a life coach once or twice, while others form an ongoing professional relationship, meeting regularly in person or on the phone. The average national cost to meet with a life coach ranges from $80 to $130 an hour. Some coaches offer per-session pricing, especially for one-time meetings; expect to pay an average of $100-$125. People who want to work with a coach over a period of time to explore life transitions, career growth or lifestyle changes may be able to get discounted pricing in a package. For example, three 60-minute sessions cost an average of $300, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $350, and four 60- to 90-minute sessions plus unlimited contact between sessions cost an average of $400. Some specific types of coaching, such as relationship or marriage coaching, cost more than standard life coaching. For instance, three 60-minute relationship coaching sessions cost an average of $500, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $550, and six 60- to 90-minute sessions cost an average of $650 when purchased as a package. Training and experience can also affect the cost of hiring a life coach. An Associate Certified Coach, who holds a certification that requires only 60 hours of training and 100 hours of coaching experience, will charge less than a Master Certified Coach, who typically has at least 200 hours of training and 2,500 hours of coaching experience.   

      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.
