Three months ago, I knew that I wanted to make a career transition but didn't know how to achieve that goal. I felt overwhelmed and was spinning my wheels. Enter Deb Goldstein. After just 1 hour of meeting with Deb, she was serving up gobs of value! Later she sent detailed notes with homework assignments we'd discussed to help me inch closer to my goal. Our sessions continued in this pattern for the next 2 months and I followed Deb's guidance after each time we met. What happened next surprised me. I received a better opportunity than the type I was originally targeting, a job that was more aligned with my long term goals. Had I even received an intermediate job offer that quickly, I would have been thrilled, but the offer I got exceeded my expectations. I wouldn't have received such a gift without learning and following Deb's skilled guidance. I will never approach a future job search the same way again. Deb is a gifted investigator, career therapist, cheerleader, and muse in a single package. She will shepherd you through her organized, thoughtful process, always going at your pace. Deb digs deep with her questions and helps you discover what you want from your career and how to craft your personal brand. She does all of this without telling you what she thinks you want, empowering you to own the process and try new things. Deb will open your mind to a better way of job searching and career building. I will gladly hire Deb again if I need career advice in the future.
I contacted Jim for help transitioning into a new career. Ironically, he helped me realize the value of the career I already had. With his advice on improving my life outside of work, I decided to stick with my current career. I appreciate the eye opening experience.
I was drawn to Molly for some reason. I needed marriage counseling, Molly was able to pin point my situation very quickly. She opened my eyes by her professional view point. Thank God for Molly. Debra
Jane has been such a blessing for me and helping me navigate through my challenges in my professional life. She has helped me work through some difficult decisions and help me see the end of the tunnel in regards to my career. I would highly recommend her to anyone with career challenges and not sure which direction to take.
Anne is personable and thought-provoking. Feeling kind of lost in my career right now, Anne had me think of things in a new light as to what I am keen on in my working life.

Ken offered great resume and LinkedIn advice. I found his insight to be very helpful, especially as I am navigating a big career change. Having not worked with a career coach before, it would have been good to get a clearer picture of his services/better understanding of what to expect from the outset... but the overall substance and style of his work was excellent.
I have successfully grown three businesses, sold over 10 million dollars in products and services and have an MBA from the number one business school in entrepreneurship. I am looking to share my expertise, network and experience with those who want to succeed and grow beyond their expectations.
I use an individual, holistic approach to my work with clients. I help them be planful, mindful, and strategic with their professional development

Before working with Ciara, I was feeling like I'd hit a wall in my career and was trying to figure out what my next move would be—the problem was, I had a ton of conflicting reasons to stay at my job vs. applying to new jobs. My goal going into working with Ciara was to (A.) Identify where these career-oriented mental blocks were coming from and (B.) work through my reservations and ultimately decide whether I should stay and continue to learn in my current role or move on to a new opportunity The number one breakthrough I had while working was Ciara, was that my self-doubt was ultimately getting in the way of my decision-making. Once Ciara provided a few helpful resources and exercises—like introducing me to Gallup’s ‘Strength Finder’—I felt like I had the tools to begin conquering my negative thoughts and start working towards my goal of determining the next steps in my career Through working with Ciara, I decided to start applying to new jobs outside of my current company. Though I still feel like my current position provides excellent learning opportunities, I now know I have a wealth of experience to apply elsewhere, so I’m starting my job search now before potentially becoming “burned out”.

Ian did an excellent job! I am mid-life in career and needed someone to update my resume. Ian combined all of my work experience, updated my layout and advised me on what content was important. I was proud of my resume after Ian completed it. Resumes are so important and I couldn't have trusted it with anyone better. Ian offers other services, as well. I will be utilizing every resource that Ian can offer. He's intelligent, strategic and, above all, an honest & interesting guy. Thank you, Ian.
Marc has been wonderful for my teen son! Glad he enjoys going to meet and seems to be a more positive impact than dwelling on negativity in a therapist office.
