Life Coaching

I was concerned that hiring a life coach would be too costly to help me past anything beyond the earliest stages of my project. But Judy’s coaching services are structured in such a way that I I can engage her not just for helping me with short term goals, but for helping me achieve long term goals as well. That knowledge, paired with Judy’s skilled and insightful guidance, has allowed me to finally trade the paralyzing sense of being overwhelmed with the clarity of having concrete, achievable goals. Judy’s particular intelligence makes her an invaluable coach for anyone who is undertaking a sprawling, intellectually intimidating, creative endeavor.

Work-life Balance Coaching

I wasn't sure how coaching worked and if it would be for me. I was a little shy at first to reach out and talk to someone I didn't really know. After working with Judy, I was able to really express my true thoughts and feelings regarding topics I could barely tell anyone else. I gained more confidence and strategies for reducing stress and learning how to deal with specific triggers that hindered my potential.I throughly enjoyed Judy and her feedback to my concerns. The frequency and timing of sessions was easy to manage with a busy schedule and the resources she provided me will continue to help me in the future. I would definitely recommend Judy's services as she is a reliable, personable and incredible individual who has helped me progress in areas I was always unsure how to correct on my own. Judy has been a pleasure to work with and is really worth a try if you’re in need of life coaching!

Career Coaching

Judy has been helping me to focus my current position search and provided relevant feedback on my process and planning, in addition to expert advice on my resume. Judy's support in helping me to develop effective cover letters has been outstanding. I recommend speaking with Judy about your coaching needs. Judy's experience and excellent listening abilities are making a big difference for me.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Pricing depends on your coaching focus, and whether my work with you involves travel or we work locally or via phone/online. I offer different packages and often run special offers for Thumbtack clients. Email me, or give me call, and we can chat about your needs to help determine the best package for you.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Whether you've hired me for life coaching or career coaching, the general coaching structure is the same. We begin with a free consultation call in which I get a sense of what you need and we discuss how I can help and what that can look like in terms of time, fees, and resources. If we decide to work together, I then send you a packet with materials which can include questions to help you think about your life/career and your goals. The way your coaching proceeds after that depends on what we've discussed together, your unique goals, and your focus. Throughout working together, we are continually assessing your satisfaction and progress.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a Board Certified Life and Career Coach. I have a Master's Degree in Holistic Thinking, and am a Certified Focusing Professional (see below). I am continually learning through workshops and reading books on topics ranging from willpower, the science of change, coaching itself, positive psychology, adult learning theory, ADD/ADHD, and other learning issues in adults. I am an ACC through the International Coaching Federation and participate in their professional development opportunities. I recently completed additional professional development on current trends in resume writing. Previous to coaching I worked in education (teacher, professional development), the performing arts (professional ballet dancer, dance educator) and I am certified in "Focusing," a process of helping people listen to themselves deeply and to grow the skill of listening not to just what a client says, but what he or she means.
