I would encourage anyone who is either looking for new job opportunities or a new career path to get help from a great coach like Judy. I am extremely grateful for her extraordinary ability to provide an objective feedback and catch up things that a relative or friend couldn’t. It is really important to have professional outside your close friends and family to tell you what you are doing right and wrong. She did a terrific job improving my resume and cover letters by highlighting aspects of my experience and skills that I was not clearly mentioning. She also provided me with resources and encouragement on how to feel more comfortable in terms of networking and finding the right connections. It feels really great when your new resume and cover letter starts calling the attention of potential employers.Mar 2, 2017Verified
Working with Judy has been incredibly helpful. She helped me put things I know into words so that potential employers understand what I have to offer and see my value. My resume, cover letter, interview pointers, next steps--these were all part of the work we did together. I can't wait to see what's next because coaching with Judy is really awesome.Aug 2, 2019
Judy gave me remarkable advice and counseling that went beyond the simple job-hunt, but into real career oriented planning that could incorporate my whole life. Her guidance and solid counseling far exceeded anything I had expected. She used a combination of professional tools with a cunning yet kind human interaction to help me identify what I wanted and needed in my professional future.Oct 4, 2016
After years of devoting myself training in preparation for a professional career, I found myself without a plan b and unsure of how to make a living. I was so fortunate to connect with Judy. Judy invested her time and effort to help me collect all of my thoughts, discover and define my goals, and together we compiled an organized step-by-step plan that made the whole process super manageable and straightforward. I have never been so productive as I am now, after working with her, and it has carried into all areas of my life. I feel confident now that I can do anything I set my mind to, using the tools that Judy has so graciously provided me - I feel like Im on a roll!Jan 29, 2016
Judith excelled in drawing out what skills one has and how to articulate them on resume and cover letter. Clear, concise, and easy to talk to, making it more productive during sessions. I highly recommend her talents and services to those who might be stuck in a rut or trying to refine their career choices.Mar 1, 2018Verified
- 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.
