My massage with Dan was fantastic. He has a great blend of techniques and I left feeling so great. His coaching thought the session on breathing and visualization of letting go of stress was truly impactful. The 90 minutes flew by so fast! Truly a skilled practitioner who knows his stuff. I would not hesitate to visit Dan again.

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!

I have only been two times. The first session I was unsure but after the second I can honestly say I give him 5 stars. I am not "better" or have it all figured out but I think the Life coach approach is the way to go for me. Plus, his questions are thought provoking and pertinent to who I am. I am hopeful I will begin to see life thru a new lense.

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've greatly enjoyed working with Josh over the last year and I've made good progress thanks to his coaching. Both my technique and my conditioning have improved greatly. Josh is professional, he has extensive knowledge and practical experience, and he's a good motivator. Most importantly, he's thoughtful in his approach. He's able to notice small things that make a big difference. For example, he showed me a simple weight drill I had never seen that helped me improve my form and endurance very quickly. For me, this is what a good coach and trainer is all about about. Overall, it's been a great experience working with Josh.

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!

Working with Lucy Curran on my Vet Tech. resume and cover letter was an amazing experience. Previous to working with Lucy I thought I had a good resume and cover letter. Lucy’s changes to my resume and cover letter made them both look and sound amazing. Her knowledge of knowing how to convey a positive message to an employer made my resume and cover letter really stand out. My new resume is now tailored to fit my personality and skills. I am now proud to present my flawless resume and cover letter to any prospective employer. I am so happy with the help provided by Lucy that I would recommend her to anyone who needs to just start a new resume and cover letter, or to someone who thinks that their resume and cover letter may be good enough.

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 am a mid-career professional seeking to change direction and I couldn’t have ask for a better Career Coach than Dr. Milwid. Dr. Milwid is a skilled guide. She begins by leading you through a self-exploration that helps you understand not only what you’re looking for but also what you have to offer. She then turns tactical and offers extremely helpful and practical guidance for restructuring the primary documents needed for an effective job search: your resume and cover letters. Throughout, Dr. Milwid shares relevant articles and research and brings to bear her decades of experience advising people and her own multi-faceted career. Dr. Milwid is also extremely encouraging and a genuine pleasure to work with. You’ll leave your sessions with Dr. Milwid feeling energized and prepared to embark on a targeted and effective job search. I feel lucky to have worked with her and am confident you’ll feel the same.

I have been working with Laura for about a year as a coaching client. Laura uses a lot of novel approaches as a coach and sessions are always fresh and interesting. I've been going through a lot personally over the last year and have found Laura to be an amazing guide during a really big transition. Her insights have translated into new actions for me, like learning to keep better boundaries for myself and I'm forever grateful. ~Danielle

Donna is not only a knowledgable career adviser but also a very supportive mentor throughout my job search and offer negotiation process. In the first meeting, she already identified my weak points and developed a plan for tackling each of them. Throughout the process I learned to communicate succinctly, maintain poise and overall demonstrate seasoned professional material. After working with Donna, I have successfully landed a few offers and negotiated terms for my dream job which I am happily working on now. I definitely recommend Donna for anyone who is looking for a career adviser or for any help to advance her/his career. Just one meeting will help you understand the changes needed and where you can get to. I love to continue working with Donna!

Jody has been one of the greatest coaches I've ever had the opportunity to train with. He is incredibly knowledgeable, patient, kind, and dedicated. I saw much improvement during my time training with Jody, and if I were still in the area, I'd still be working with him! If you're new to working out again or just need a change, Jody is your man!

    My career has transformed completely since working with Emily. I came to Emily feeling stuck in my career and unsure of how to tap into my skills. The coaching process has helped me to learn about myself and what I need to do to succeed. Also, Emily held me accountable to myself and to her which caused me to actually get stuff done and make progress towards achieving my goals. Now, I have my own business, have won a huge international award, and feel confident in my direction. Thank you Emily!!

    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.
