Very grateful to have been given Drew as my coach. He has a way of getting information across so that you understand it. He is very patient; I know I'm not the first person he's explained all this to, yet he acts like it :-) His energy is positive, yet mellow. Really glad to be a part of his team, and I know that I will owe my success to him. Thanks for being awesome Drew!!

I heard Kim in a seminar and joined her Back to Basics program soon after. From there she became my life coach. Kim has helped me in getting in touch with myself, accept who I am and make my quirks work. As a coach, she is not shy about calling you out on your defaults. Her program is designed to help achieve the success one deserves and her team provides a great support system while guiding, navigating, and blazing a path to actualize one's dream; personal or professional. She is just that.. Success Genie!

I highly recommend J & J Staffing for anyone searching for a new job. I was at a crossroads in regards to my career. I had worked for the same company for over 15 years, when they went through a massive lay-off. I was part of that lay-off. I turned to J & J Staffing for Career Coaching and truthfully, I would have never found my next position, if not for them. They assessed my skills and interests in order to match me up with the ideal position, helped me put together a dynamic resume and then coached me through the entire process, including resume writing, job search, career coaching and prepping for all interviews. They were extremely professional and went "above and beyond" to help me during this very difficult time. I highly recommend their firm.

Alyson has been giving our daughters swim lessons for over 6 years. I cannot say enough about her incredible teaching skills, bubbly personality and the care and love she gives our girls. My oldest daughter was afraid of the water when Alyson started with us and she is now a strong and confident swimmer who can outdo me in laps any day. My youngest daughter became a great swimmer years ago, but every summer begs me to ask Alyson to come back so "she can learn more." I highly recommend Alyson as an excellent, reliable and caring swim instructor.

    Jeff is a sensitive and skillfull life coach. He is adept at guiding his clients towards self understanding with compassionate support. He is also a master astrologer who can synthesize ancient wisdom with modern knowledge and techniques in order to help people to achieve their potential.


    I offer life coaching, spiritual counseling and transition coaching services. Sometimes, we need guidance and do not get it because we do not want to be diagnosed or put on medication. I teach you techniques to use everyday in which you will learn about you, your needs, dreams and goals and how you can achieve them. Sometimes, we need guidance in getting us through a transition. Transitions and change are normal and a necessary part of life.


    We are all so individual, and that makes what we all do so different, right? My work stands out partially because of my passion. This is my life's work, this is what I am here to do and be, and it shows, according to some of my clients. I have been on my personal journey of transformation for a long time, and what I have learned, where I have been, has given me such an indepth awareness of our psyche, our fears and belief systems. I feel that I can connect with whatever is going on with a person very easily.


    I am a life coach who helps people identify and overcome the limiting beliefs that are creating obstacles for what they want in life. I help people gain clarity on what they truly want for their lives by uncovering what is really important to them and showing them how anything is possible. I specialize in getting quick results; many times, just one session is needed.


    We are a life coaching and business strategy company specializing in wealth building. We give you the skills you need to be an entrepreneur.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
