Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: HELLO - I’M SO GLAD YOU’RE HERE. I'm an experienced life coach with a B.A. in English from Yale University, a Master’s Degree in Finance, and am working towards my Doctorate in Psychology. I specialize in career strategy related to resume and cover letter writing and editing, building strong LinkedIn profiles, executive career coaching, negotiating promotions, business consulting, start-up strategy, motivational speaking, and more. I’d love to coach you, help you land a job or transition your career, and support you on your life journey! COST/PRICING I charge clients on a sliding scale based on your income. My fees are $150 - $250 per one hour (60 minute) session. The range depends on the industry level (eg entry level versus C-Suite) that a client has. I also offer coaching packages for 3, 6, and 9 sessions that come with discounts. 3 sessions for $450 6 sessions for $950 9 sessions for $1,350 OR 1 resume/CV $150 - $250 1 cover letter $150 - $250 1 cover letter + 1 resume for $275 - $450 total. I only partner with people who are genuinely committed working on their career. Serious inquiries only, please. Thank you! EXCEPTIONAL COMMUNICATION SKILLS Listening with attention and empathy is the foundation of my life coaching and career strategy approach. I'd love to help you learn how valuable you are to the world, and to provide you with practical tools you might need for the next chapter of your job search, career move, and life journey. I’m a friendly, interactive, solutions-oriented coach who practices evidence-based techniques. I integrate complementary tools and methodologies to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. I’m known for my genuineness, authenticity, and compassion. I work with each individual to help you deepen your own self-regard in order to build on your existing strengths and achieve personal growth. A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME I’m a married mother of two with a successful executive career under my belt, and I have been coaching, teaching, tutoring, mentoring and counseling individuals for over twenty years. I specialize in working with women ages 18-40, but I also have clients that are couples, children, and teenagers. I have a B.A. from Yale University, an M.S. in Finance from New England Institute of Business, and a certification from AMG Medical Institute. I’m currently working towards earning my PsyD (Doctor of Clinical Psychology). I believe in the potential for good that is innate to all people, and I strive to spotlight people's gifts and personal narratives in their job applications and career growth trajectory. MY APPROACH TO LIFE COACHING AND CAREER STRATEGY I give my clients space and safety to talk through their current challenges and career goals confidentially, broaching topics that can range from work relationship difficulties to industry dissatisfaction to workaholism patterns. I help an individual get to know themselves better and to clarify their personal, relationship, and career goals, and then I support the client as they work towards those goals (e.g. finding a new career, modifying behavior at work, writing a resume and cover letter, interviewing for jobs) at the client’s own pace. I take an interdisciplinary approach to coaching. I empower my clients to learn about and feel better about themselves within the stability and warmth of the coach-client relationship. I provide emotional and technical support and my goal is always to empower you to learn more about yourself. I use positive psychology and cognitive behavioral tools like journaling, cognitive behavioral techniques, and mindfulness and acceptance techniques. I serve an extensive and diverse population. I am LGBTQ+ friendly. SCHEDULING Depending on the client’s individual needs, sessions can take place as frequently or infrequently as coach and client determine together. I typically work Monday-Friday but can accommodate weekend sessions as needed. CAREER COACHING I help clients clarify what their goals are in life and in their career path, empowering my clients to discover and implement their gifts, and achieve the job, income, and lifestyle they desire. I start by getting to know each client in-depth, and most importantly, help my client to get to know themselves and discover more about who they are. Cultivating my client’s self-awareness through cognitive behavior techniques is key to this process and helps my clients build greater self-esteem and self-knowledge over time. I help clients by taking them through the steps of envisioning the life they want for themselves, and then breaking down their goals into manageable steps. I assist with stress-reduction techniques, strengthening communication skills, and resume/cover letter/essay writing and interview preparation for clients who are in a career transition or promotion. COVER LETTER AND RESUME I have 20 years experience helping individuals brainstorm, craft, and hone exceptional cover letters and resumes. As a career coach with a B.A. in English from Yale University, a master's degree in business, and over 20 years writing and editing, I assist individuals in setting tangible goals and achieving their dreams by creating narratives and resumes that set clients apart from the crowd. Specifically, I help clients brainstorm outcomes and envision specific goals, whether asking for a promotion, just entering the workforce, or making a career change. Then I give clients the tools they need to get there. I offer resume writing, narrative development, public speaking training, job interview preparation, as well as professional, highly personalized editing services for clients who are submitting writing prompts or essays. I employ specific goal-oriented tools to help individuals making career changes build the life they want for themselves. I serve an extensive and diverse population, and welcomes diverse individuals from all walks of life. CONTACT ME Thanks for visiting! Take care, and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

I’ve been working with Kay on preparing my career documents for an executive level job search and networking opportunities. She has given great advice and counsel throughout the process. She is detailed, responsive and honest. I have faith in her guidance and have no qualms about referring her to other executives who want to clean up their career documents and launch a purposeful search into potential opportunities.

Details: I have a completed draft that needs revision • Healthcare • Executive-level / C suite • Cover letter • At the pro’s location • Remotely (phone or internet)

Kay is a truly gifted life coach. I am filled with such purpose, vitality and clarity after each session with Kay. The way Kay reframes how I approach my career, home-life and in my relationships has been so incredibly helpful. She leads me to greater insight and new perspectives - ones that I would not have thought of on my own. She has helped me gain a "can do" approach to things that I previously thought were out of my reach. Kay makes me feel heard, validated and special. She will be your biggest cheerleader and will be a consistent guide on your journey in life. Don't waste a second more, meet with Kay - you will love her.
