"Judy is an exceptional life coach. Too many in the coaching field couch and cover their work in hopes of not giving too much of their work away without compensation. Judy does not withhold her knowledge or expertise from those she serves. Her training, insight and experience is evident from the moment she begins engaging with you. Her listening skills are apparent. The questions she asks of you are structured to stimulate your thinking. Judy is a unique Life and Career coach. She belongs on your team as you transition and transform your own life and career objectives."

Victoria, is quite a talent! My wife and I met with her for about 45 minutes and she presented me with a handout script for me to read out loud and then critique me over and over again until I improved somewhat, as it’s still a work in progress but I think she’s well worth the money.

​So February 9th, I weighed-in at a doctor’s appointment to the tune or 298 lbs. In my mind all I could think was I am a cheeseburger away from 300 lbs. In my battle with weight, I vowed that I would never weigh over 300 lbs. So this day was an eye opener for me. That day I was determined that I need to make a difference in my life. So I started changing my eating habits and started looking for a gym.. So I decided to get a personal trainer/coach. A gentlemen stated that he knew the perfect person to pair me up with. As I was leaving he pointed out Mr. Dimitrius Drye. In the mind I said, “Oh Hell No!!!” Mr. Drye was in training mode with a client and what she was doing was unbelievable. Something I knew I wouldn’t and couldn’t do. He looked up at me and said, “You’re going to be doing these too!” I told him I didn’t like him already. Saturday, February 27th was my initial assessment with Mr. Drye. I thought he was the trainer from hell. Once I made it through the assessment, I knew I could do anything. He gave me a meal plan that I thought was absurd. At the end of my 3 months of 1:1 coaching with Mr. Drye and adhering to his meal plan, I weighed 266 lbs with a loss of 29. After I saw this change, I signed up again with Mr. Drye and to this day I have lost a total of 65 lbs bringing me to a weight of 225 lbs in 7 months ..Never in a million years did I think I could be where I am now especially after numerous failed attempts. The best decision I ever made was working with Mr. Drye. He is an AMAZING coach. He pushes you to work harder even when you think your body can’t do it nor will he let you quit. He encourages you and explains what area of the body and what muscle each exercise works. Mr. Drye knows exactly what exercises to have you do to get the desired body shape you are looking for. For me I needed someone who was going to be relentless and be a drill sergeant. I found that in him. In this journey, I learned that this has been more mental than physical. Why? My body can do anything, but my mind didn’t think so. I had to make up in my mind that I had no choice. It was either do or die for me. Mr. Drye made this experience enjoyable and not dreadful. In fact, because of him I can now say I love working out and I look forward to reaching my goal. Thank you, Mr. Dimitrius Drye, for helping me to change my life one day, one weight, and one exercise at a time. Sincerely, Ms. Tamisha P. Tyson

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.

Lilia was so kind to speak with me on video chat for an initial consultation. She kindly and attentively listened to my concerns, and recognized areas in which I wanted to improve without me having to let her know directly. This showed me she was truly listening. Lilia's appraoch was geared toward my overall well being and my need for happiness in life, and understanding where I need to begin by recognizing where my habits came from. She let me know my goals are realistic and attainable and that I deserve what I want in life, and with adjusting my cognitive lifestyle I can achieve the life I dream of. I look forward working with Lilia. She has a kind, intellectual soul, and I greatly appreciate the time she spent speaking with me reasuring me of my concerns. Best, Nadine

      About

      Hello! My name is Chiara, and I am looking forward to working with you. I have a master's degree in counseling studies, a master's degree in psychology with a specialization in child and adolescent development, a certificate in crisis counseling, and a graduate certificate in professional counseling. I have over 7 years of experience as a counselor, parent educator, anger management educator, and college professor. I have worked with individuals to develop career and life plans that include short- and long-term employment goals. I assist teens and adults, step-by-step, in identifying the career fields that interest them most, what educational or vocational training they need, and how to maximize their income potential within a particular field. It is often difficult to figure out what you "want to be when you grow up". I can help you. I have over 5 years of experience in employment counseling, including working as an employment counselor in the New York state. I would love to put this education and experience to good use by helping you. As a college professor, I often work with students who begin school without any idea of their career paths. It is normal. It is even normal to not be certain of where you are, or where you want to be as an adult. Many people are often stuck in a field that they do not love because they were forced to pick a job or major before knowing what they really wanted. It is never too late to change careers or learn more about yourself. My goal is to help you get to where you want to and deserve to be. I will work with you, side by side, to create a brilliant future. Let's get started! I cannot wait to meet you! Chiara

      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.
