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.

Jonathan is a sensitive, caring, and joyful coach. I walked away from each interaction with Jonathan with a new piece of learning, more insight about myself, and a renewed sense of my place in the world. Identifying and being your authentic self, changing the the things you can change, and letting go of the things you can't change isn't always easy work, but with Jonathan, it feels like a fun adventure.

Karen was a wonderful guide when she was coaching me during a life transition. She was also very intuitive and perceptive when there were subtle tendrils of thoughts I didn't even fully express making their way into our discussions. She was very much there with me, even on the phone. Thank you, Karen!

While researching coaching professionals based out of the Greater Sacramento and East Bay areas, I connected with Dan Chrystal. Honestly, I could not be more pleased. As a fairly successful, but unfulfilled “forty-something” year old, I was originally seeking some career guidance. Within our first meeting however, it became apparent that the work I needed to focus on first was much more personal in nature. Through deep, honest and open discussions as well as guided personal discovery assignments, Dan was able to expediently dig into some core issues that had been subconsciously shaping my life, choices and ultimately my destiny. Within a few sessions, I was able to lay down some decades-long heavy burdens, clear up some limiting beliefs and settle some internal turmoil which previously, no advisor, coach, therapist or friend had been able to understand or help resolve. Dan has a simple, honest, approachable demeanor, which was important to me. At this point in my life, the thought of endless personal discovery over multiple months of verbal rehashing was simply not an option. But I also knew that I needed help and was ready to fully participate in making that process happen. With his holistic mindset and a focus on getting down to business, I highly recommend Dan Chrystal as a personal / professional coach for anyone who is ready to do the personal work to make change happen. I look forward to my continued work with Dan as I move into the next phase of aligning my professional life with my personal values and talents.

Lynell and I have worked together for the past six months (and counting)! I have worked with other health coaches before and even professionally edited a holistic health coach book, but these coaches' knowledge pales in comparison to Lynell's knowledge and expertise. Lynell is very supportive and is very knowledgeable about health and fitness. However, she goes beyond just your average health coach that's out there. Her coaching comes from a psychological approach, including whole body wellness and stress management techniques, and the word "diet" (as in the starve yourself dieting to lose weight) does not exist when she works with you. She helps you create healthy habits from a goal-setting perspective that are both realistic and produce amazing results. As a result of working with Lynell, not only have I lost almost 20 pounds but I have more energy and feel more focused and organized in my life, especially with my career path. I'm a freelance copywriter who works from home and Lynell has really helped me to really hone into my career goals as well as my personal health and wellness goals. Lynell also has a background working with diabetic clients and is very knowledgeable about diabetes and how to be heart-healthy. She is dedicated to helping her clients prevent heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes. She has helped me focus on my sodium intake. In the past, I had issues with on-off again high blood pressure and with Lynell's help and assistance, I've been able to keep my numbers at a healthy range. There is a lot of confusion out there about nutrition and healthy eating and there is a LOT of misinformation on the internet. Lynell's approach is realistic and works in "real life." She doesn't set you up to fail and she's there every step of the way with you. Lynell concentrates on the basics of nutrition so you don't feel overwhelmed. She walks you step-by-step through the goal-setting process and encourages and supports you during each coaching session which gives me confidence and feels like I'm not alone in my health and wellness journey. I'm 44 years old and am dealing with perimenopausal symptoms. Lynell is very empathetic and has shared invaluable tips and information about the types of foods and nutrition I should focus on for healthy balanced hormones. As a woman, I feel like she really "gets" what I'm going through and really listens. I highly recommend working with Lynell. If you feel like you are spinning out of control and don't know how to get your health back on track or want to exercise but don't know where to start, definitely hire Lynell for her coaching sessions. She's an amazing coach and is a very positive and uplifting person who always see the bright side in every situation!

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!

I first started training with a Jared several months ago when my age and work requiring lots of driving that caused bad sciatic pain. Jared started with a thorough discussion of my current physical concerns and goals for training followed by a series of exercises to assess my physical condition and range of motion etc. over the coming weeks he put me through a series of progressively challenging routines that I would run through on my own between training session with Jared. This resulted in dramatic improvement in my sciatica. I really appreciate Jared’s knowledge of physical training, his individual approach and his positive coaching style. I highly recommend Jared as an exercise trainer to anyone!

I was filled with anxiety & I was crashing from a bipolar mania when I worked with Sheree. I was very weepy & miserable, I was not doing well at all. There were some things that I didn't listen to her about right away so it slowed my growth but once I did things began to improve & still do. I already judge myself harshly so I didn't need anymore of that. Sheree is very accepting & understanding but she is also real & will tell you where you need improvement. Because of my ways of coping I would let my kids do whatever they want. Sheree also opened my eyes to things that are important to change for my kids and now their lives are improving as well.

Ken Karnack, owner of Old School Fitness, has been my online coach since March 2011. I am 43 and up until I was 30 I was in incredible shape. At 30 I got married, had kids and I forgot about me. I ballooned up to 280 lbs from 220 with a 29" waste. I did the weight loss diets, doctors etc for years. I started looking for help 10 years ago. I started having health concerns. Vision loss from phentermine diets, blood pressure over 153/110 and just plain out felt like I was dying a slow death. Being a former athlete and knowing what I was capable of made it worse. I came across Ken and what he has done at his age and said I could do that. So I contacted and determined to make a change. Ken has knowledge and experience and knows how to fix me. In my words I am broken. Quitting is easy but Ken keeps me on course and is more than a fitness and diet guru. He listens when I want to quit and throw the towel in. I am 249 now and stronger than I have been in years. For the first time I know I found the answer and it was not a tv show or fad diet. It was Ken Karnack!! In the end it will be because of him I will be able to say I am in the best shape of my life and healthy again. We are going to 220 lbs. This is a journey and Ken my navigator. I trusted him with my life and he is making it possible for me to set a positive example for my kids that they can do anything and how to stay healthy. My 13 year old son was fat when I started this. He watched me and he started to care about himself. He is lean right now and happy. So Ken has helped me in many ways and continues to. I cannot tell you what he has meant to me and my family!

As a Certified Professional Life and Leadership Coach I assist my clients in improving their levels and styles of communication and increasing the effectiveness of their relationships (both professional and personal). My interest lies in enhancing the success of all I work with and assisting them as they move forward towards their desired successes at work and/or home. I focus on coaching management, sales professionals and individuals around the skill sets involved with their business and life rather than just supplying them with motivation. Motivation wears off. Skill sets last. The more recent focus of my management, team and life coaching workshops has been about creating positive and highly successful communication which leads to similar relationships, with colleagues, staff, as well as customers. I am more interested in coaching people to find the skills involved with achieving their success rather than teaching them to dream. Everybody wants more, but it's something entirely different to become more.

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.
