I met with Cedric McSween for the first time on March 24th, was extremely impressed with his professionalism, depth of knowledge, grasp of my situation and needs, and his explanation of what he could do to assist. Our 2nd meeting occurred on March 31st and his methods produced immediate insights to build on. I can well see the direction that we are headed in, and I am very pleased and looking forward to learning more from him. Anyone looking to engage a business and/or career coach should absolutely give Cedric very serious consideration.

Delisa coached me earlier this year through a challenging time in my life. I had just gone through a divorce and was considering a career change. Delisa helped me to pick myself up by the boot straps, set up a goal triangle with clear plans for follow through. Our weekly phone call meeting to discuss my progress, any obstacles that came up and future accomplishments that I wanted to add really made all the difference in completing action plans that I identified for myself. Coaching really works. And Delisa was right. Coaching IS different than counseling. I knew I did not want anyone telling me what to do and how to do it. I just needed direction and someone checking in on me holding me to my goals.

Catalina clearly has a great affinity towards coaching, and knows exactly how to unlock the unseen potential of her clients. Her detail-oriented but emphatic approach to the process allows her to get to know a person deeply enough in a short amount of time in order to refine an uncover potential and revitalize their personal profile, it is very admirable. Catalina approaches each coaching session honestly and thoughtfully, allowing the clients to consider the realities of their situation in a entirely different light. I personally consider Catalina's coaching style very helpful , as she enables me to delve deeply into my career situation or my past experiences, improving my thinking process and lack of confidence . She was able to give me the gift of self- awareness and modify behaviors into attaining specific goals. I cannot thank Catalina enough and I recommend her to everyone.

It is my honor to recommend Kimberly for her awesome abilities as a Life Coach. When I began meeting with Kim I had no idea what an eye opening, life changing experience it would be. We've all been to a "therapist", you know the person who writes and nods and mmmhmmm's and ask you about your childhood- But Kim is strong and empathetic, honest and realistic, fair and tough. You indeed talk about your past so you know who you were but you move on, you focus on the future, you grow- you FEEL growth when you speak to her, you have moments of extreme discomfort then moments of extreme clarity. As a coach Kim took me from a cynic to a woman at peace. Kim's coaching skills took me on a journey through me and I wasn't broken to begin with but Kim helped me realize how critical we all can be of ourselves and how every single day of our lives is about growth and passion and purpose and not the negative or the bags that weigh us down from our past. Kim is truly a gem and a big glimmer on my life's timeline as she has given me so many reasons to smile and be thankful for my wonderful life, career and family. Kim is the coach of coaches... no need for Red Bull- Kim will give you wings... (and maybe even a rocket pack). I humbly and strongly recommend Kim as a Strategic Intervention Life Coach, even if you think you're chugging along fine through life- She has a way of making you shine just a little bit brighter. Thank you Kim, from the bottom of my heart for all your coaching and guidance!

      My 20 years of nursing experience was not enough when I needed to change career paths to become a telephonic case manager. I needed a mentor and a coach to improve my motivational interviewing skills and impress my new employer. I was fortunate to be coached by Cecilia one on one. Not only is she an expert in motivational interview, she has a talent for making things simple and easy to understand. She is a talented coach with great in depth knowledge of all of her subject matter. Her ability to find the right words is amazing, and she has a unique ability to teach you enough to feel like you can be a coach as well. Her training has really helped me to advance my career. Thank you Cecilia!

      I have gone through several career transitions. I know how difficult it is to start a new career and move from a technical area to management. I help my clients from the perspective of someone who has gone through it. I like the feeling I get after a client has successfully found their new career.


      I offer full-service career campaign services from identifying what you have to offer the world, to putting your marketing materials together, to strategizing an effective search experience. My clients have branded me a best friend, a mom, and a drill sergeant, all wrapped up in one individual. Helene L. writes: Jane served as my career coach long before the term was invented. She genuinely cares about the success of her clients and friends, and her no-nonsense, can-do attitude motivate you to set goals, create a strategy to achieve them, overcome your inertia, and get out there and make things happen! I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a deeply knowledgeable, dedicated, well-connected resource to help them find the courage and develop the tools to explore new possibilities. And from David R: When I first contacted Coach Jane, I had just been laid off after a long tenure at a large company and when a recruiter asked me, what do you want to do? I had no answer. Well, I don't have that problem anymore. Coach Jane's guidance and support helped me to identify what it was I was looking for in a career and, more importantly, what I was looking for in an employer. Not only did Jane help me figure out what I wanted to do with my life but she also helped me discover more about who I am as a person. It got to be almost like therapy. I can honestly say that what I learned in the short time working with Coach Jane will guide me through the rest of my life. And Joe continues: I went to Coach Jane during a period of transition in my life and was spinning my wheels in making a decision to stay at my current job, look to another job, self-employment, or other options. I suffered from "paralysis from analysis" and felt overwhelmed by the changes in my personal life along with these career decisions. I first believed a career coach just helps evaluate the potential job choices, but Jane's system digs deeper and provides insight into your system of values and beliefs to determine the environment, not just the job, that is the best fit. Coach Jane's methods provided a needed period of introspection and reprieve from self-imposed pressures, and ultimately identified a conflict between my values and how success had been defined by my environment. Beyond her system, you can see Coach Jane truly cares about those she coaches.


      After putting literally thousands of people to work, my partner and I have developed a one day seminar that presents everything from writing a quality contemporary resume, using linked in and other networking sites, preparing for interviews, etc. Due to high demand we are making our training manual available for direct download.

      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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
