I'm a softball player at Waldorf College and I had the privilege of working with Coach David last year. I came to him in the fall, trying to work through a hip flexor injury and build strength specific to my sport [pitching]. Though Coach David was not working with the softball team, he took the time to make a personalized workout for me, including sport-specific lifts/exercises, and strengthening stretches for my hip. On top of that, he built one-on-one time with me into his busy schedule, making sure that I was doing all the lifts correctly and helping me to improve with each session. He also kept in touch with me when I was on the road travelling for games, checking in on my hip and my confidence. He is an excellent coach, one to takes time to work individually with athletes and who genuinely cares about their well being. I honestly would not have had half of the success I had last season without him.


I was not suppose to survive my injury but in God's will, I did. There are lots of people, including my family, who helped me. I promised others along the way that I would help others to believe in the future and that there is a way.

My work stands out because I don't have to try to get clients, my clients come to me. I seem to attract people who need help and have problems in their personal and professional lives. I care about others and have a desire to help others. I believe God has called me to be a Life Coach. You can all the credentials in the world, but if you don't truly care about people, you will not be able to help them. If all you care about is the money and when the time is up, you really do not care about the people. Time is an issue because I need to be able to organize my time. I need to charge a fee, but it has to be a fee the person can afford. Lastly, my degree which I do not put emphasis, is a Master's of Applied Psychology. My degree helps me to understand how to build resilience in others and in myself. Resilience is the ability to work through issues/problems. I use Positive Psychology and Solution Focused Thought to help clients. I do not do therapy. I am not qualified. I use what I have learned to help others. Yes, my degree has helped me understand our physiology, psychology, and neurology. I understand how what we think affects our circumstances, and how we feel about ourselves. If we are happy, we are more apt to be able to understand positive thought and how it can bring you to an awareness of what you are to become. Happiness is something that may be foreign to many people, but it is an integral part of success in business and in life. Finding your flow state which is a state in which you are working, but do not realize you are working because you are enjoying it so much. Love of work and of life is a goal that we can work toward together. I will be learning as you are learning. It is a collaboration of minds that will bring you to new and higher insights about yourself and others. The human connection will help you find your true purpose.


Why are we different? We touch on more areas than most coaching programs. We integrate business skills, biz promotion, website work, internet promotion, professional ethics, referral systems, and implement healing, self-discovery of your life’s possibilities, teach *action strategies* to make a difference in the client’s success, and a business online presence to keep you professional as a coach. You will graduate with an amazing start with your ability as one of our Master coaches, and the needed launch pad for your new practice. When you graduate you will be certified as a Self-Discovery Coach™. ** We have unique training methods to teach you human need and psychology on a coaching level, while giving you critical thinking assignments weekly. This starts you thinking like a coach from the start while learning to think on your feet and apply to each unique coaching client.

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.
