Lisa is outstanding. After years of visiting various psychologists, I have enjoyed a more action based approach. I prefer the direct application of insight to my personal situations that we discuss and how she really takes time to get to know who you are. Lisa is very genuine and personable. Her years of experience with Life Coaching enable her to be really engaging and have allowed me to process my experiences in unique ways that I do not believe I would otherwise. This post was created after having three sessions with lesson and her initial consultation.

James has been working with my daughter for 2 years now as her voice coach and music manager. We just got done recording her new music with him. This is the second time going out by him to record. He is always very personal and professional. We absolutely love working with James and he does a great job with his teaching! My daughter is 10 and started working with him when she was 8. He does a wonderful job during her lessons because he really knows how to talk to her about her strong and weak spots. We feel very blessed that we have the opportunity to work with James because he really knows the business and music.

    I am an executive with over 22 years experience. I had the pleasure of working with Kioka for executive coaching services as I was exploring and deciding between new opportunities. I found Kioka to be very patient, reflective, and a great listener for details. She was always on time for appointments. In addition, Kioka has a keen sense of process and can offer key advice from a human resources perspective and challenge you to stay focused on goals that are most important to you as the client. I found this approach to be extremely helpful in my decision making. I was very impressed with Kioka's ability to summarize situations and provide key insights for me to advance with my next executive leadership opportunity. I highly recommend Kioka Coaching.

    I am a Human Resource Assistant for the Department of Defense for the past 5 years. Mrs. DeShannon Bynum Dixon facilitated a self-development conference at our church! Emmanuel Christian Church which consisted of life skill training. She did an excellent job of teaching us resume writing and interview skills and how to negotiate your salary. It has been four months since her dynamic training and I'm excited to say I have secured a new position at the Department of Veteran Affairs. The best part about it I received a raise and a promotion!!! I will begin my new position September 8 with a $4000.00 increase in my salary. Thank you DeShannon!!!!!

    Such a gifted facilitator, who envisions programs that are powerful, poignant, and unique. She creates multiple access points for spirituality, women's leadership, history-making, and history-saving (e.g., oral history programs and listening circles, sacred events and profoundly moving rituals). Thank you to "Our Sacred Circles" for all you give and guide. Highly recommend.

    Maida is teaching me Spanish, and I am very satisfied with her methods. She has recommended a book that I use and she leads me through the lessons and adds to them with explanations of daily usage and pronunciation. It is just a little difficult to understand her English sometimes because of her accent, though.

      I worked with Craig in a setting where he was responsible for leading and mentoring a diverse group of adults. Craig is skilled at connecting with all types of people. He is warm and compassionate, smart and inspiring. Craig knows how to motivate others through the power of the relationship, positivity & straight shooting. His leadership style is charismatic, and he also walks the walk, with generosity and a willingness to extend a guiding hand to others. Training others in new knowledge and skills is one of Craig's core strengths. I wholeheartedly recommend Craig F. Reed. Andrew

        I am proud to share my experience working with Marques over these past several months. The experience can be summed up in a few words: Friendly, professional, responsive, and present. He also has a big heart for helping ppl. He was nice enough to respond back to. me on Linkedin not know who I was.Few days later we met at a coffee shop. Months later he allows me to help him out with his speaking events and to learn from him as well Marques has been influential in spreading his life lesson so that others, current or former NFL PLayers, or anyone for that matter, takes the time to truly understand and consider who their potential business partners are before investing large sums of money. Marques has been humble, thoughtful, and respectful in every conversation and interaction. Moreover, his presentation style is both persuasive and compelling. Looking forward to continuous workkng with Marques moving forward! He is definitely on way to the top. All through helping ppl.

          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.
