Working with Patrick and Binita was very beneficial for me and my partner's relationship. They are very warm, combining psychology with coaching to create a balanced, comfortable and highly effective counseling experience for their clients. The psychological aspect helped us empathize and understand each other more completely, while the coaching aspect gave us specific action steps to move our relationship forward. After just a few sessions, we saw major improvements in our communication and conflict resolution skills. We continue to use the tools they gave us everyday, and would highly recommend their services!

I got in touch with Andrew and this company when I needed help to achieve my future career goal as a police officer. Andrew is flexible with scheduling and will do what he can to make it work your schedule as best as he can. The workouts are personalized to what you are in need of and what your personal goal is. As for the workouts themselves, they are intense as well as informative. Andrew does a good job explaining the reason for the workout and what it will benefit. Overall the work that i have put in with Andrew has definitely been a pleasure. -Joe

    Rosalyn excelled at providing career guidance and linking personal behaviors and communication to outcomes. This really helped me see how my actions influence my success and gave me the empowerment necessary to take hold of my career and make great strides. I was struggling with finding gainful employment after graduating college in the economy of 2008. Since my experience working with Rosalyn, I have been able to secure employment and make the moves necessary to thrive in my workplace. I've enjoyed moving from one sector of employment to a totally new one, using the skills taught to seamlessly make the transition. I now find myself enjoying my work and have been granted several promotions since I began my journey of gainful employment.

    I used Cassandra Griffin's coaching services when I was going through a challenging time in my professional career. I was dealing with work-related circumstances and changes that I did not initiate and I felt that my life, in this area, was out of my control. Cassandra listened to me and helped me to process what I was experiencing. She also encouraged me to shift my perspective so I could get back in a place of power and purpose. She coached me through my transition from my old job to a job that I feel is a much better environment and fit for me. I appreciated Cassandra's ability to be in tune with my feelings, reality, vision, and goals. Although my initial focus was on my career changes, the coaching that Cassandra provided also benefited me in other areas of my life. Cassandra does a wonderful job of blending her professional coaching skills with her natural humor and wit. This made the coaching process effective and enjoyable.

    I know from personal experience that it's hard to be objective about who you are, where you are and where you're headed. Kattalina helped me find answers to those questions and define the obstacles that were stopping me from moving forward. I was open to what seemed to be unconventional ways such as EFT, Reiki and career evaluation to unravel the layers of time and experiences that seemed to keep me stuck in the same old cycles. Kattalina is also a very caring, non-judgemental, listening agent who has a gift for seeing and feeling things that are not so obvious. I highly recommend Kattalina for any type of coaching situation ~ JP ~

      As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, I help guide and motivate my clients to make changes in their lives. I work with my clients by holding them accountable, making goals together, and giving them the necessary skills to make the desired transformation. I practice from a directive, goal oriented approach that helps clients cope with anxiety, manage depression, work through relationship issues, learn how to communicate effectively, manage stress, and learn skills to control anger. I really enjoying working with couples and watching the transformation between the couple. Its amazing when I work with a couple that feels that their relationship is unrepairable and I get them motivated to work on their relationship and assure them it is not too late!

      I am gifted and experienced at developing initiatives and solutions that solve issues and provide structure for working out problems. Whether in relational conflict or community development, there is a need for engineering solutions that can facilitate reconciliation or train skills that build people into a good team.

      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.
