I hired Linda as my career coach because I wanted some new ideas on how to apply for jobs and what changes I could make so my resume stands out more. My resume was already in great shape so it didn't require rewriting, but she reformatted it so my major accomplishments are front and center. The DISC assessment I did with her was insightful and I incorporated that into my resume and my job interviews.

Dr. Sharon Lee graciously fell into my space when I was 22. She coached and mentored me until about 25. Three years have passed since then and I can say that the service she has given me is invaluable. No, it was not a become an instant success, or a become instantly better person type of thing. Dr. Lee administers tools; she identifies what the tool is, how to use it and most importantly, which tool to apply to what problem area. Then, once you understand those basics, she sets you free to master those tools for yourself. What I enjoyed most about Dr. Lee’s services is that she didn’t hold your hand the entire way through. Things you thought you had together she’d quickly point out that you didn’t, and even if you felt angry about what she was saying to you at the moment, there was always a teachable moment where you could come to your senses and process your situation and errors rationally. Make no mistake, Dr. Lee is certainly kind and compassionate, friendly...all things you would hope to expect from a Counseling Professional. But she is not afraid to push the buttons needed to elevate you where you need to be. My experience with Dr. Lee has been wonderful. What is taught by her can be carried and utilized long after your season with her is over. It has grown me, and it will grow you. Book services with Dr. Lee. It is certainly a worthwhile investment.

Charles guided me through developing a vision for the next phase of my life. He provided me with useful tools that included guided visualizations, a new meditation approach, and a fresh perspective to deal with some old issues.

I had to write you and tell you how great the work you are doing is. I followed your advice from our one-on-one's and it really works! At first, I'll admit, I was a bit confused and I'm not the most outgoing guy, but it all makes so much sense when it comes together. There was such a solid method when I look back. Now I really understand the trick to approaching women, it's so easy. I was suddenly more confident like I know a big secret that only few possess. It is amazing how well women respond to me now.Best money I've ever spent.


The following are offered: * personal -- helping others achieve their goals and fulfill their dreams * business -- developing leaders through supervisory leadership and communication skills development; training in SMART goals development, implementation and measurement through teamwork We're focused on businesses in the 100-employee range for rapid success.

I am offering life and business services to my clients. I offer my life experiences to help others avoid the same pitfalls and give them encouragement. I coach using the Bible as my source.


I personalize all coaching and training to the specific needs of the client to ensure success. My ability to see the issue, produce viable solutions and support clients to integrate the solutions is a key to my work. I focus on action and taking you from where you are now to where you want to be. I love to see people achieve things they previously didn't think possible. I love light-bulb moments and facilitating those moments. I also love the challenge of thinking outside the box and finding new options for people that are feeling stuck. One never tires of seeing people start to get more out of their work, relationships and lives.

I live it so I can teach it to you! It makes me smile when a guy says I can where that new shirt or wife says I feel sexy again.


Helping You Discover The Silver Lining. Founder of Silver Lining Coaching and talented photographer, Dr. Gerald Mulvaney, sees life in pictures. Waiting at a stoplight one overcast afternoon, Dr. Mulvaney took a picture of a cloud with silver lining. When looking back at the picture from a slightly different angle, he recognized a man’s face shaped in the clouds. This astounding discovery revealed the profound secret of living a happy life: Looking for the silver lining in everyone, everything, and every experience, empowers you to recognize the hidden beauty, significance, and miracles of life. It is human tendency to wait for a better life but often times it takes a shift in perspective to recognize the answers are right in front of you- you just have to take the first step. Silver Lining Coaching, named for this unexpected miracle, aims to shift your perspective, refreshing the lens through which you look at life. SLC’s strategy will help you rediscover a lens that focuses on hidden beauty and wisdom, even in the cloudiest of times while empowering clients to take back control of life and happiness. He now integrates his skills as a life coach to strengthen patient-physician relationships, while using his wisdom as physician to enhance the life coaching experience. Life Coach. Physician. Photographer. Musician. Dr. Mulvaney founded Silver Lining Coaching in 2016 in response to his longtime calling and passion for inspiring others to become their best-self. A practicing OB/GY/ N and infertility specialist, he recognized more and more that connecting with patients fueled his love for medicine. Yet, with a busy schedule Dr. Mulvaney, wanted more time to learn his patients stories and to have the thorough conversations that brought purpose to his life’s work as a healer. Many patients and colleagues alike credit his supportive and motivating advice as an essential (yet gentle) push on their journey towards life transformation. His passion for connection inspired him to add another tool to his doctor’s kit, life coaching. Silver Lining Coaching is the intersection of Dr. Mulvaney’s passions: people, medicine, and photography. He aims to harness his love for photography and medicine to speak to others, while empowering clients to take back control of life and happiness. He now integrates his skills as a life coach to strengthen patient-physician relationships, while using his wisdom as physician to enhance the life coaching experience. As a coach Dr. Mulvaney’s philosophy revolves around being on a client’s team. He strives to provide all of the necessary tools, skillsets, and resources for his clients to thrive in the game of life, while coaching from the sidelines. Have him join your team today, and discover the greatness within yourself. It's time to create the life that you have always wanted. Coach and physician by day, and musician by night Dr. Mulvaney sings in a Reggae band, that shares the art of his native country Jamaica. Dr. Mulvaney has lived in North Carolina since 1982 where he started a private practice in Goldsboro NC. He relocated to Raleigh in 1985 after accepting a faculty position at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In 1992, he and two colleagues began Triangle OB/GY/N (now merged to Triangle Physicians for Women) and NC Center for Reproductive Medicine, both of which are still blessing couples with the gift of life. Dr. Mulvaney enjoys getting and giving inspiration from his wife Wanda, daughters Lakevia, Shannon, and sons Graham and Jose. When not coaching doctoring or singing, you are sure to catch him with a camera in his hand. His keen eye for capturing beauty in nature, is demonstrative of his talent for seeing beauty in people from all walks of life! Medical School: Boston University School of Medicine 1978. Residency: King’s County Downstate Medical Center 1982. Life Coaching: Raleigh Coaching Academy 2016

My work stands out for two reasons. One...I love doing it, and two...I frequently do it for free. Which means that I like it and people trust my words. Sometimes, unfortunately, some only realize the value of those words in hindsight. I am making my first consultation free. If you like my edification...we'll continue. If not...I bid you well. My time is valuable and I DO work for money, but this is a business relationship first. If you don't think I can help you - why hire me. And how will you know unless you sample my work. I don not want to waste your time any more than you want your time wasted. I take pride in everything that I do. I want the sheets on my bunk to look the best. Besides, a one time consultation may be all you need, and that I'll give for free, because I love you - whoever you are. I believe in love so much, I'll bet that even YOU will pay for true value. I have a common sense approach to life. Love...its powerful enough on its own. Love doesn't need my help. We both know that love is blind sometimes and we both know that this is why you are here. Love makes it harder to see right from wrong. You are here because you need direction or confirmation to what you are already deciding. Or maybe you need a fresh perspective or new insight. Every one needs a teacher, even me. How can the child be an engineer, without the professor to teach him engineering. Love cant be taught though, your born with it, so you can only experience it and express it. If you've never experienced something new, its foreign to you and you need some fresh solid options on the table. Which may help you determine how best to express yourself in these new experiences. Whether these experiences they be innocent or almost unforgivable. I love helping people. I especially love that aha moment that people get when recieving enlightenment. It's the light you crave in these situations. You cant see clearly because of the absence of light. Darkness has consumed you in a few particular areas and you wish to be enLIGHTened. Remember that light can overtake darkness. As long as the candle is lit, then light will fill the space. Once the light goes out...your vision is limited. Strong families are the anchors of the community. If we destroy or fail to build strong families, the community will fail. I live in the community. I don't want it to fail. Call me selfish or old fashioned, but I like strong families and the hope of unconditional love.


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!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
