Hi! My name is Shalita McFarland and I trained with Coach Walter over the years and he is amazing! I lost the weight and gained muscle tone and have been able to keep my weight down since I first started with him in 2010 and it changed my life. 5x25 Abs is a must if you are looking for someone who will hold you accountable and make you push to achieve your goals. I recommend anyone to try 5x25 Abs and I promise you will not regret it!!!

I offer marriage, youth and adult counseling. I work on motivational and pastoral speaking engagements. I also provide drug abuse assistance.


I can coach those who are currently or have experienced a significant type of transition in their life, such as divorce, death, job change, empty nest, or health. I believe that coaching aids in helping one find his/her way back to the path that he/she may have strayed from. My personal journey through cancer has allowed me to be more passionate about my coaching. I have worked with many families locally through transitions, such as the death of a loved one, divorce, and children/teen issues. You will find my prices to be fair and reasonable.


Sometimes life gets tough. When you find yourself navigating through the stormy waters of life, do not go it alone. You deserve comfort, support and guidance through the times that hurt the most. I have worked with people going through or healing from crisis and trauma for 25 years. You deserve to not only make it through but to get the support you need to continue to build a better life even through the hard times. Visit our website.


It's exciting to see people make real, positive breakthroughs in seminars, keynotes, coaching, and Reiki! I LOVE watching giving people a GBK (Gentle Butt Kick) so they can make their dreams HAPPEN!


I assist my clients in establishing priorities with their health and fitness goals, and then we create concrete plans to help achieve these goals. I provide accountability and help them monitor their progress, as well as setbacks. Majority of my life I have been overweight, and I remember going to Weight Watchers at the age of 8 per by doctor's recommendation. After graduating college, I had reached 260 pounds. I decided that something had to change, and I would not continue the rest of my life being overweight. I have recently lost 130 pounds, and following my weight loss, I proceeded to obtain my personal training certification. I am extremely passionate about helping others reach their goals, and I find it incredibly fulfilling to see individuals become successful in their weight loss journey!


I provide "a good living and a great life". I am helping self-employed professionals thrive personally and professionally. Sessions are available in person (Durham, NC), by phone, and by Skype.

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.
