I am so happy that I had an opportunity to receive some professional tweaking from Lisa. Her knowledge and experience is amazing, the information and advice she shared have helped me in many ways; I am more satisfied with my resume', I am more confident than ever in my professional abilities, skills and experience and determined in the direction I should continue to go, which is forward and up! She helped me round out my goals and put my priorities into perspective. She continued to work with me until we were both satisfied in all of the areas I needed help and I am extremely thankful for it! Lisa is an excellent career coach, wonderful inspirational mentor, easy to talk to and a great listener. I am so blessed to have met her and had an opportunity to utilize her skills and knowledge. I will not hesitate to use her again!

Kris has been amazing in helping me through out the career change searching. Our session still continue and each time I feel more motivated and inspired. He seems to really understand where I am coming from, what my challenges may be and how to overcome them. He is easy to talk to and to 'connect'. I hope to continue my journey with Kris' help and find the answers I am looking for soon (and i hope I am close!).

When I started working with Harlan, it was to assist me in the progression of starting a new business. I knew nothing of coaching, but met him through a friend. He created for me 8 guided visualization as well as some self-work, that helped me see exactly what it is I wanted from my business as well as how to make conscious choices to get there. He provided the tools, support and encouragement necessary to unblock my negative perceptions and energy and eliminate my limiting beliefs. In working towards these business goals I have learned a tremendous amount about myself. I didn't realize that my behavior patterns were affecting both my professional life as well as my personal life. While exploring and committing to make the best of one, I was gifted with improvement in all aspects of my life. So in improving my business and career, I have inadvertently created a more fulfilling and authentic life for myself and my family. I finally feel I am who, and where I should be. It is such an overwhelming and liberating feeling. My business is growing and on track, and I am doing what I love. The personal growth and discoveries have allowed me to experience relationships, both professional and personal, on a whole new enjoyable and enriching level. Harlan provided a safe, non-judging, compassionate, and insightful environment that allowed me to explore, experiment, and discover who I was truly meant to be, and I cannot thank him enough!

I worked with Colleen to uncover blocks that were stopping me from achieving my career goals. With her help, I came to realize just how deep they were, as well as, what I needed to do to release them. Colleen’s insights, tools and resources, gave me the sense of power over my career and future. Through her gifts and talents and unswerving dedication to the truth, I now feel like I can take on any challenge that comes my way with strength, honesty and my own unique sense of authenticity. I now feel energized and excited when I wake up in the morning.

    Valentina is very kind hearted, warm, and outgoing . She is highly motivated, and has the ability to motivate others by her demeanor, and presence. I know this as I have worked along side her in a production environment, where she brought light in the form of attitude, motivation,energy and good spirits into a potentially dark, overwhelming, gloomy exhausting environment. This being said, she is a natural leader ,with many skills , and experience to offer....including all aspects of production, logistics, supervision, managerial experience to include, administration, Human Resources, coaching, counseling, with foundational skill and experience in systems, : computer, wms, fishbowl inventory, fast typing, with a good handle on problem solving issues within the mentioned. She is highly organized, with capabilities to organize on a large scale , up to and including, fresh ideas that have made our production plants run at maximum efficiency by way of labor scheduling, batch and produce procedures, time keeping and logistical formats that have all around maximized output.She is a wonderful mother of 3 , married to a good man with 2 children for a combined 5 children. This brings us back to personality traits that most of us cant even fatham, ie..patience, guidence,great counselor/ peer coach not only for her children , but to anyone she crosses paths with . How do I know...?? She gave me the greatest gift that one can receive in life....( researched for months day and night ) until she found my birth mother , and siblings, never known to me prior to her warm, loving gift of life and family that I long for so deeply. Besides all this information, skills, experience , personality qualities,.....She is my BEST FRIEND..!!!!! Now and Always. Benjamin Seale. 720-275-1835

      George MacIlwinen is the Horse Whisperer of young adults struggling to find their footing in their transition to adulthood. Our son had a history of difficult medical problems in childhood that prevented him from achieving developmental milestones and left him as an anxious young adult, depressed, over-medicated and isolated. Over the years we ran through many therapists and programs and our son had grown skeptical of their effectiveness. All that changed when we met George MacIlwinen. George's contributions to our son's life and our family's life are so extensive, it would take pages to catalog them. First and foremost, George understood our son like no one had before, he understood the trauma that our son had experienced and the gaps in his development. Most important, he saw our son's potential and his prospects for a good future. Therapeutically, George is a creative and independent thinker. He has an over-arching philosophy, but within that he is adaptive. For our son he followed a holistic approach incorporating experiential therapy and psychotherapy together with a strong emphasis on healthy life habits including reduced medications, physical fitness and diet. He has also been especially proactive in helping our son develop social skills. Personally, George is calm, empathetic and friendly. He's genuine with an easy smile. He is an excellent listener; he's insightful. George models the healthy behavioral habits that he advocates. He's a natural mentor and educator and has provided invaluable counseling and guidance to our son and to us. George MacIlwinen is an amazing therapist. Meeting him has been one of the single best things that has ever happened to our family. It's a great pleasure to recommend him to you.

      I was getting ready to take a college placement exam and I felt lost and unfocused. My home environment was messy, I was letting myself get behind on bill payments, I was eating poorly and felt unmotivated. Kate offered to do a life coaching session with me. I was amazed that after only one session I felt so empowered. Kate gave me simple, easy to follow tools for achieving immediate successes in areas of my life that were preventing me from moving forward. I was able to easily check off accomplishments. I also had to check in with her to show that I was following through with what I needed to do to get through my own personal obstacles. I a very short time I was back on track and able to properly focus on my studies, without all of the mental and physical distractions I had created. I did well on my exams and now have a successful career in the field of Science! Kate is inspirational, uplifting, kind, and understanding. I would highly recommend her services to anyone, male or female.

      Jonnae at Experience Hope Counseling really helped me walk through my goals and what was keeping me from progressing. I was also able to look more closely at things I was struggling with and find a solution that worked for me. She didn’t give me answers, but helped me see things for myself. Life changing!

      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.
