I scheduled a lesson for my college-age daughter, a beginner, to learn about how to cook with boneless skinless chicken breasts. Mary devised a 2 hour lesson plan with at least 6 chicken recipes that my daughter was able to master. They were all delicious and she feels confident with a new set of skills that can be applied to other proteins. I would definitely recommend Mary and plan to schedule additional lessons.

Laura digs down into the root of the problem by exploring triggers and the resultant negative thoughts that drove me to believe my voice didn't matter. She did this by sharing her own story which helped me to trust her with my own and conducted a physical simulation of speaking scenarios to help identify triggers. Afterwards, wait. I can't share more without giving away her technique. But what you can see is she isn't just a Public Speaking coach. She's also a counselor who helped me to understand the whys, steps to move towards my goal, and lessons in faith. And this was all in one session. I plan to continue my sessions and will provide an update later to give a final assessment. I don't believe anyone trying Laura will be disappointed. I got more than money can buy.

When I'm looking for a mental health professional, there are certain qualities I need present to trust this person to guide me through the ups and downs of life toward stability, self-confidence, and growth. Anne Chow possesses all these qualities and more. Though there are too many qualities to elaborate on individually, the two most important to me are warmth and unique insight. Warmth is crucial because I won't truly open up to someone who seems cold and purely clinical in how they analyze me. I reveal my most personal experiences to her because, from all our interactions, she has shown empathy as she celebrates my successes and mourns my losses right along with me. Anne Chow's insight is what separates her from the pack. Sometimes her feedback is something I've known subconsciously, but haven't really acknowledged it consciously. Other times, she finds patterns and puts events together in ways I never saw coming. When I see things as just random unrelated life events, she will find similarities to events in my past and help me find the lesson embedded in their repetition. When looking to navigate the minefield that is life, Anne Chow is a partner you'll need by your side.

My coaching experience through Fluid Leadership has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life! Attending these coaching sessions helped me through one of the most trying times of my life. These sessions helped me to discover what is most important to me and to pursue the life I want to live. My life coach, Lawrence Ellison, used methods that empowered me to search my heart for the dreams that I had allowed circumstances and fear to bury. By actively participating and doing the assignments, I graduated from the reactive to the creative and have started paving my way to a fulfilling life. As a result of these sessions, I am now pursuing my passion for a career in music. Fear no longer has me bound, I’m taking control of my life. Thank you Fluid Leadership, for your guidance has given me the courage I needed to make the necessary steps to live an abundant life. I’m thankful!

Mary Krause was wonderful!!! She conducted a Zumba session recently at our Health Fair and everyone had a great time--still getting compliments. I will definitely recommend--she had all ages (kids, teens, adults) doing Zumba. The lesson was performed so that everyone could participate. Thanks so much.

Dr. G @ Your Service

When I first met Dr. G, a couple things were crystal clear; her enthusiasm and passion. Seldom do I meet people who have such zeal for what they do, combined with the ability to express that emotion to others both in-person and remotely. Her warm personality mixed with her willingness to help, Dr. G is a great resource for leadership/marketing training. My work with Dr. G involved a project of mine released on Android phones. Initially, I was uncertain about how to market and describe this product in a meaningful and influential way. We worked through a customized marketing solution that helped develop key marketing points for the project. What I most appreciated was Gwen's ability to take a systematic approach in teaching this solution. It was always a challenge to match her energy, which forced me to grow in areas where I was weak. Occasional difficulties transformed into chances for growth; always a great experience. In the end, I am extremely happy that I met Dr. G. Without my experience with her, my products would not be the same. Dr. G may be small in stature but her presence is immense.

Brooke is a terrific coach. I was going through a big transition leaving a job to start a business. Working with Brooke was like talking to a good friend who really listens and cares. She is easygoing, approachable and humorous. She asked simple yet very powerful questions that opened up my thinking to other possibilities that I hadn't considered. Her coaching helped me make the leap sooner and with confidence!

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

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.

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.
