I've been working out with John for over 3 years, and he has transformed my body. He helped me lose about 13 pounds before my wedding. He's more than just a personal trainer - he's a life and health coach as well. I know if I have any questions about health or what I should be eating, I can always send him a note, and he'll respond. Every workout we do is always different. He keeps things interesting, and I always leave feeling good/sore. John is the best!

Working with Nicole: WOW! Nicole is at the top of her game! She's enthusiastic and professional. She's prepared and punctual. Her methodology and coaching are comprehensive, creative and targeted for the modern market place. My cover letters, resume and interview prep are anything but generic! She has tailored them to reflect me uniquely. Having been out of the work place for 10 years, raising a family, she has prepared me to be confident and competitive as I begin a new career. I know that my relationship with her will most certainly continue. She's an asset in regards to staff development, communication strategies, and furthering future career steps towards higher management. I cant recommend working with her enough! Thank you, Nicole!

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!

Arya is a master counselor and life coach. He brings a potent combination of skills into his work: a sincere heart, a highly intelligent mind, and a wealth of professional training and experience. Every session feels expertly held in a professional yet humane container; the real issues are addressed, directly and sometimes sternly, but always with an authentic kindness and care. Arya has helped me to: -cut through my insecurities and obstacles around my artwork -focus in on and take more action with my career in more ambitious and visionary ways -navigate very old and difficult patterns with my family -recognize and begin to authentically relate to things I was avoiding about myself/my life in a way that has led to way more relief, freedom and positive action -and just more generally, being someone in my life I can trust to help me through the ups and downs of being a human I'll share one more thing: though I didn't experience this directly, my dear friends went to Arya for couples coaching/relationship counseling. They said they received incredible benefit from their work with Arya, and that if not for his intervention, they don't know if they would have made it. They spoke about his acute attention to detail, especially in tracking the subtle habitual ways that they would shut down or leave their hearts, while giving them practicable alternatives to create the kind of connected, intimate, and fulfilling relationship they were longing for but couldn't find. There's a reason (many reasons) why Arya is at the top of this yelp list. He is absolutely worth it!

When I first decided to work with a coach, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I had an initial goal, which was to uncover my core values and use them to chart a path forward for my business. My only experience with coaching was through sports, so I set my expectations according to that dynamic – direction, skill building, tough love, and intensity. But after a few sessions with Emily, I realized that her form of coaching is more powerful than the kind where someone tells you what to do. Instead, every discovery, decision, and behavior change in this process has come from my own inner voice and deep knowing. When I arrived at each of my core values, it was thanks to Emily’s ability to listen, feel the energy, and make connections across themes that came up over a series of sessions. Her guided visualizations have helped me connect with my values in a way that I can feel them in my body and immediately sense when they are fully expressed or compromised. And just like magic, I have seen a shift in the way I show up with my clients, my friends, and my family that feels completely genuine, true, and easeful.

I spoke with Velina on Skype about the challenges I'm dealing with in my life and she was really helpful. I highly recommend her to anyone having difficulties or needing a good coach in their life. She seems to know a lot and has a lot of experience helping people with all kinds of issues. For me, I really felt like she cared deeply for me and understood me like a close friend and yet is very professional. She is warm and kind. I'm so glad I found her. She helped me so much.

I truly see Emily as a lifelong collaborator. She took the time to understand my professional and personal goals in order to help me work through my next career move. By artfully blending a holistic mind, body and soul approach to professional coaching she helped me articulate my passions and how those passions might align with my career goals. I highly recommend any person or organization to bring her into your process, the outcome was so valuable!

Last year, Trent helped my husband Trevor and I as we worked through some communication concerns in advance of our wedding. Trent helped us identify unhealthy patterns in our communication styles. As a result of Trent's coaching, Trevor and I were able to identify workable solutions, and a year later, we continue to see the benefits of incorporating those lessons. In fact, the improved communication we developed after working with Trent has further strengthened our relationship, and it's definitely helping us as we move forward in our married life together. Thank you Trent :-)

Elke is a pluri-disciplinary queen and she masters all areas. I have used Elke for Ayurvedic consultations, massage therapy, facial, and life coaching. She is able to custom-make every session so her clients get the best out of their time and money. She has an extensive knowledge of Ayurveda and was able to make dietary and lifestyle adjustments based on my body type, which were instrumental in reclaiming my health. With regards to massage therapy, she gives massages that are out of this world! The best I have ever had and I have had quite a few... The technique she uses is Ayurvedic, with long strokes and warm oil to relax the body and calm the nervous system down. She uses all kinds of modalities: acupressure, reflexology, marma points, essential oils, cupping, hot stones, chanting, etc. She works out of her private office, which makes the experience even more exclusive. I look forward to every session I have with her and visit her regularly. As a Health Coach myself I appreciate the fact that it is essential for the nurturer to be nurtured and recharged. Self-care is ultimate, especially in today's stressful and demanding world. Her work goes beyond taking care of the body, as she infuses every session with wisdom to support the mind and spirit as well. She goes above and beyond to meet the clients needs. She is professional, knowledgeable, realistic, efficient and generous with her time and skills. I highly recommend her services!"Thank you, AlexandraCertified Health Coach, Yoga Instructor, & TranslatorCell: 925 858 2133Visit my website and sign up for my FREE monthly newsletter: alexandraleny.com

Michelle is an incredible mentor and career coach. First, I love that she is very high empathy and supportive. Michelle listens in a way that makes people feel comfortable, and she seeks to connect on a deeper level. She's also seen it all herself. Across her years in venture capital, management consulting, and fast-paced tech companies, Michelle has learned and succeeded in diverse, highly demanding environments. Because of these experiences, she's able to consistently provide both high-level perspective *and* super concrete, actionable next steps for career development. Finally, what I most appreciate about Michelle is that she's not afraid to give a push every now and then. She knows how to challenge people in the right ways. Meeting Michelle has accelerated my professional learning, and I highly recommend her to anyone.

Krista is the best. I'm a distance runner, and I was having pain in my left leg that was effecting my training. Working with Krista, we took a holistic approach and worked on my diet, stretching and running gait. I couldn't be happier with the results. I'm faster and so much more injury free, but also generally in much better health.

I have been working with Krista for the past 6 months and she is very insightful and intuitive in her coaching style and is not afraid to dive in and ask me the hard questions. She allowed me to dig deeper and assist me with making the changes I wanted. This has been more than health coaching and has covered many areas of my life. Krista continues to give me the push I need to set myself up for success. I would highly encourage anyone to work with Krista.

My Home Temple

New To Thumbtack

    About

    If your home environment is out of balance, most likely your life is out of balance as well. The places we live in have a profound effect on how we feel, think and act. A home that is in alignment with our essence is more than just a place to live. It is a sanctuary, a haven from the stresses of everyday life and a temple for body, mind and spirit. If you are longing to transform your home into a vibrant and harmonious living space that supports your deepest goals and life intentions, I can help. I do home readings. I diagnose energy blocks and areas that are out of alignment and which may be affecting your health and well-being. Taking into consideration your personal style and design aesthetic, I will teach you how to create flow and harmony using the things that you already own and, if necessary, make suggestions for easy modifications that will instantly improve the feel of your space. One of my favorite things to do is help my clients birth their dreams by teaching them how to use their home's energy to intentionally accelerate manifestation. I use tools from many wisdom traditions, including feng shui, the chakra system, color therapy, energy healing and the alchemy of impressions. My approach is deeply intuitive, which allows me to quickly tune into an environment and diagnose areas that are out of balance. Additional services include design, color consulting and resource suggestions for anything, from shelving solutions to paint color to eco-friendly rugs. I love what I do, and nothing makes me happier than seeing my clients' lives improve. I'm a certified feng shui consultant, and have been practicing since 1993. I am also a life coach and energy healer.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
