I am very thankful for my time working with Joel. He was my career coach a few years ago and the insight, confidence, and direction he gave me are very helpful. You could really tell that he is passionate about what he does and I felt like he actually cared about me. I didn't use his resume service, but next time I need one done I definitely will. I highly recommend Joel if you are looking for a career coach or life coach or even mentor or anything like that who actually cares.

I chose to work with Todd Smith for many reasons. His free interview is a nice touch and shows an ethical commitment to allowing potential clients to meet him and interview him before spending money. It is also a nice touch that his fee is reasonable! I sought relationship coaching with my wife after working with a counselor that was a good listener but offered very little direction. So we decided to try the coaching approach. Todd offers the best of both worlds - having the knowledge, insight, and background of an experienced counselor and the skill to motivate, teach, and promote change of a life coach. We feel so fortunate to have found him and highly recommend him to those who are highly motivated to do the challenging work of change and growth!

I have known Judith for over ten years as a family friend and life coach. She is a most remarkable, talented woman who has earned my complete confidence as a professional. Judith has the life experience, the education, the spiritual insights, the desire to teach, and the love of humanity that appeals to me. I worked with her as a client for about eight months this past year. We worked through each session that consisted of review of learned material and presentation of new material. As a result, I was aware of of my progress in learning how to live a more balanced, peaceful life. Her training has helped me in many ways, and I recommend her as one of the most powerful quality of life changes I could ever make.

Clover is a beautiful breeze of fresh air as well as a wind with a bite of chill. She enables me to see things from a new perspective and speaks the truth with kindness and understanding. I have gained an understanding about myself that is now a part of me everyday instead of being buried inside. Her ability to inspire my creativity is such a joyful experience, and laughter is always a part of our process!

She has multifaceted understanding and experience with both Western medicine, and whole body health. With her impressive knowledge, she shares the limitations and it's benefits in both fields, and she helps me to learn to navigate and have reasonable expectations, and advocate for my own health. Her coaching has helped me to better health and with the knowledge I've gained I am able to strengthen the health of my family as well.

    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 just began work today with Cathy. She is such a pleasure to speak with. She is clearly innovative and her mind is working the entire time you speak to try to figure out solutions to your career issues. She asks very pertinent questions and has ideas and answers to help clear away some of the ambiguity surrounding the "correct" path to take. I look forward to speaking with her again next week after I complete my "homework" she gave me. Highly recommend Cathy as a career coach!

    Maylu is just an amazing mentor! She encouraged me to eat healthy without giving up my tastes. It was just the right balance between healthy and delicious. Moreover, I tried her Ballet Fitness class and the classes help me to achieve realistic goals that we establish together. She is a thoughtful teacher that cared about me, but who will not doubt to apply discipline to achieve the goals.

    My name is Geri and I am a food addict and compulsive overeater. One and ½ .years ago I was discussing my habits around food with Mr. Young and, with patience and professionalism, he coached me through an addiction awareness process. He guided me to a place where I could see I was addicted to food and where my addiction could be resolved through a recovery program. I am now working the steps in the Overeaters Anonymous program because of his coaching skills in the area of addiction. I will ever be grateful to him for his expertise.

      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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
