I am a life coach, and when Steve came to me for "best practices" information I decided to test him with my 4 toughest cases. In 3 of them he easily arrived at the same advice I gave and the last one actually had a better solution which I passed on. He is well read and knowledgeable, very personable, fair and sometimes brutally honest. I would consult with him if I had a problem.

I have been seeing Maya for over 2 years. She has helped me with many items that has been going on in my life. We have worked together for healing. Not only in my personal life, but with any surgeries I might have coming up. She has helped me move on with the loss of my husband, and has helped him move on as well. I am very impressed with the work Maya does. She continues to surprise me with what she know about how I am feeling. Knows if I am not feeling good, if I haven't been eating right, and not drinking the right thing. I always feel so much better when we are done with our session. I have been balanced, healed and on the road to greater thing.

Doug helped prepare my fiance and me for our wedding. He met with us twice before the ceremony and covered basic "wedding preparations" with us - making sure we understood the commitment, and he got to know us as a couple - taking great care to walk us through the process and help us prepare for our big day. He is awesome! He is a great life coach and advisor. His wedding ceremony was meaningful, faithful, simple and included all of our wishes. Ron & Stacey Tella

Sarah has been my coach on and off for several years. When we first met, she helped me navigate a major professional shift and I return to her again and again to help me get back to balance to manage both challenges and opportunities. She has a very sophisticated technique, which helps you chart your own course while benefitting from her keen questions and insights. All the while, she is your accountability partner, as well as cheerleader. I give the highest recommendations for Sarah as a personal and professional coach.

    Seth is an amazing trainer! I recently had a cruise coming up and a fluffy body - not a good combo. Between his workout regimens and guidance with my diet, I was toned up and bikini body ready in just six weeks. Even though it was a difficult process, Seth was not only my trainer but my coach and cheerleader as well. He was there supporting me every step of the way. Despite every workout being a challenge, he made them fun. I can't recommend him enough. If you are looking to improve not just your physique but your overall health and confidence, Seth is the trainer for you! :)

    I work with the process of blending families to make them a stable entity. I am what I practice. I understand that when your home life is unsettled, it carries over to other relationships including your work environment. I know what happens to the children that are involved in a negative attempt to blend a family. I also know what occurs in a business situation when people don't listen to each other and anger is the underlying motivation and workers are unaware of this condition.

Then, together, we figure out what you really want in retirement. Lastly, we support you in taking the first steps in your new direction. We also work with couples to help them determine where their views of retirement overlap and where they don't.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
