Number One = Top PSYCHIC for the two top U.S. event planners for MD, DC, northern VA and southern PA. (Mid-Atlantic.) Psychic since my childhood, I have spent much of my life developing my skills to include 35 years as a certified, accurate psychic, and 40 as a professional astrologer. Clairaudient, clairsentient, clairvoyant and claircognizant; I participate in and teach psychic development programs. I also teach astrology. I regularly read for high-profile parties, (past presidents' families), corporate events, fundraisers as well as individual clients. I am featured on blogtalkradio and have a loyal following as a 5 star advisor via online venues who test their applicants three times. I use variety of divination methods: Straight Psychic - top talent, Tarot, Palmistry, Astrology, I Ching, Runes, Billet reading, Handwriting analysis, Quick 'Messages', Shaman work, Crystals, tea leaves/Turkish coffee grounds and Psychometry. I read your energy and will deliver (always upbeat, never negative, often funny) information on your health, wealth, relationships and life purpose. Amazingly, information transcends time and space, thus the popularity of internet or telephone readings. I never judge or ‘sugarcoat,’ but being a strongly compassionate empath, I am always a cheerleader. My personal life purpose is my own spiritual growth, and I will always counsel my clients toward their highest and best spiritual growth as well, with kindhearted and uplifting humor. Since I am brand new to this site, I have decided to include some reviews which may speak to how I work better than I would. Please just ask and I will tell you where they are from. I am humbled amidst all this praise for I know it is the Divine which sees fit to act through me, it is not me. OUTSIDE REVIEWS ————————————————————————- From my first month on a hotline: Just Amazing. The best reader on this site. The best. If you need help, she’s the one you should go to. My heart is now light. TY! She is amazing! Connected well to the situation. Only needs names and she just types like she is seeing a television. She is honest and sincere. Definitely accurate. Very generous with time. It feels more like a good friend that cares about me than a psychic that wants my money. Beyond amazing! Spot on. Generous with time. Sweet and helpful. Answered all my questions. she picked up on details about the other person that were quite specific, never have had that experience before… She is awesome. Nobody has picked things to this extent. Gifted indeed. I was depressed looking for a job. She told me where I could find the job by her description and told me send out my resume. It was so unbelievable because she was so right. FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE THAT A PSYCHIC COULD GIVE YOU AN ACCURATE DESCRIPTION, COLOR, TIME AND PLACE. (client’s upper case emphasis) —————————————————————————— Event planner reviews: We were SO FORTUNATE to have Clairvoyant Lady attend our party. What a fantastic human being! Her readings were so interesting, and many of the guests were surprised by how accurate they were and touched by her gentle and soothing manner. She is extremely gifted. She's also remarkably patient—we had a lot of guests and everyone wanted her attention. She gave readings to a full range of people—men, women, old, young, TEENAGERS! EVERYONE was equally impressed. And everyone walked away feeling like something important had just happened to them. She absolutely made our party a huge success. I could not recommend her more highly, and I am in her debt. -Noemie B., Washington, DC (gig ID# 3427840) She's fantastic! Her readings were highly accurate for 20 people at a cocktail party. I would definitely use her again. -Lena D, Washington, DC (gig ID# 3255391) We had Pamela come in for a staff event. Every single person that met with Pamela was impressed and highly impacted by her talent. With no doubt, those who met with her, have plans to see her again. We would definitely recommend Pamela over any other without hesitation. -Johanna P, Washington, DC (gig ID# 3013791) AMAZING and WONDERFUL!!! Exceeded all expectations! She did readings at our party and our guests absolutely loved her so much that they quickly formed a line waiting for a turn! HIGHEST possible RECOMMENDATION and positive endorsement! -Benjamin A, Red Lion, PA (gig ID# 3402116) and many more ————————————————————————— Another hotline: 1/31/2019 User026215 phone Clairvoyant Lady gave me a fantastic reading! I've had many and this one was the most specific and useful I have ever had. She gave me information I can use in my daily life and ideas I can start visualizing and dreaming about. I will certainly be contacting her again very soon!!!! 2/2/2019 User284637 phone Fantastic reading! TOTALLY on the mark! Fast! Like really fast answers to my questions! Totally feel like I really got help with some very specific issues - my. Mothers health, my career, my next opportunities were all given specifics which were right on target. For example, I work freelance and Clarvoyant Lady specifically said I would be on for two weeks and off for one, then back, which is exactly the schedule! Amazing reading! Would do again with her because she was so fast and accurate. Great voice to speak with over the phone - very professional and dead on the mark. Thanks so much, this was amazing! I’m totally grateful to her for the insight. I give her a FIVE 1/28/2019 Mrs Hartson phone This was my first time with speaking with a new advisor on keen. Clairvoyant Lady was very upbeat and very cheerful. She was in tuned to the questions that I asked, and she gave me straight forward answers. I very much liked her spirit and would call her again. Thank you Clairvoyant Lady for speaking with me this evening. 1/28/2019 slickbic phone Lady (Pamela) was Terrific! She added insight to the reading regarding family issues and work issues that I didn't even inquire about! She read my situations with clarity and accuracy! In addition to that, she touched on the good karma coming into my life, with beautiful imagery (she saw a "shining rainbow to my left"). She also CORRECTLY STATED that she visualized me in "a swimming pool" about an hour ago - I was in my bathtub! I couldn't believe how efficient she was! I had 2 minutes left over after she finished up! BEAUTIFUL reading, I will come back again! —————————————————————————- Other Testimonials: Pamela is the most consistently and amazingly accurate reader I have come across. Not only for myself, but for others who rave about her during and after parties and fundraisers. I highly recommend her. Beth G., Silver Spring, MD Pamela told me that my love would be going to Europe for 3 1/2 years, but that after this he would return. This has come to pass. Toni B., Rockville, MD Thirteen years ago I was given a gift of Pamela's taped interpretation of my just born daughter's astrology chart. It described very specific issues I would have with her, as well as talents she would possess and her personality traits. It was uncannily accurate. Pamela even suggested ways to resolve problem areas. I am both amazed and grateful for this gift. Nancy K., New York NYSee more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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.

Why get a life coach?

People of all ages and in all careers have called in a life coach. Life coaches are accredited professionals who can help you figure out the tangible changes you can make in your life to reach your goals; they can even help you turn your dreams into goals, if you’re not sure where to go next. A life coach can also help people find their purpose in life. Life coaching clients often have an idea of what they want to do, such as help people or work with animals, but don’t know how to turn that passion into a career. A life coach can help clients work through the options to find a clear path with concrete steps that lead to an attainable goal. A life coach can also help clients make a major career change, such as starting a new business. Life coaches can help clients develop better habits that will make them more successful, acting as an accountability partner. Life coaches also often guide their clients through major transitions in life, such as a career change or other stressful situations that are made easier with guidance from a neutral third party.

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.   

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?

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.
