Dr. Miller is the best! She is a true professional and really knows what she is talking about. With her help I was able to overcome my fears and take charge of my career. Since working with her I have successfully transition from a teaching position into the curriculum leader position that I always wanted but was too afraid to apply for. I highly recommend the career coaching services provided by her and the Professor Patty Cake team! Jackie

Chris Allen has been my business coach for four years and I only have positive things to say about my experience. Her background, education and experience uniquely qualifies her above other coaches I considered and have since become aware of. She provides a number of assessment tools. Her PeopleMap tool helped me understand my approach to the world and to use it to work effectively with people with a different perspective. It gives me the ability to consider how I can better deal with difficult or awkward people situations that I encounter. You have to do the "homework" to get the most benefit. Chris can't do it for you. She listens carefully and comments constructively about what she is observing. She is flexible in her approach, being aware of my needs yet gently pushing when it's required. She has listened to my jumbled thoughts and helped me see the appropriate path to tackle situations. I can tie increased income directly to a number of conversations that we had. I read that entrepreneurs that engage a coach significantly increase their business income. There is no questions that I am experiencing that by working with Chris. She has helped me grow personally and professionally as I'm growing and running my business.

Working with Jenny was a game changer for me. I first contacted her during a very painful and significant turning point in my life. I was seeking to connect with myself on a deeper level, and gain greater insights. I selected an Akashic Reading / Clearing / Prayer. Upon reading it for the first time, I will never forget the deep wave of emotion and remembrance that came over me. The words I read resonated with me on such a deep level, I wept in relief and gratitude. During times I felt disconnected I would refer back to my reading, each time gaining something new. It gave me the opportunity to know myself on a soul level, consider possibilities I had not considered, and gave me the opportunity to start my healing. I came to Jenny again several months after my mom passed from cancer, after learning I was diagnosed with pre cancerous cells in the cervix. I selected an Andara energy healing session, not knowing the session would become one of my most cherished spiritual and healing experiences. After following up with the doctor, I was told my pre cancerous cells completely reversed to normal, and have been clear every single follow up appointment since! When my mom passed away, I asked Jenny for a relationship reading for my mom and I. It was such a beautiful way to honor what we had been through, and receive such strong confirmation and additional clarity regarding what had transpired between us. It was a beautiful gift to the both of us, and served greatly in my grieving and healing process. I feel my time with Jenny is truly an investment in myself and my future. It brought me such gratitude and joy to see how working with her never stopped after our session, as it always evolved and expanded even months after the session had ended, gifting me with greater insights and healing than I could have imagined. I am so grateful I crossed paths with her. Her work is truly a gift, that keeps on giving! From my experience with her, I don’t question investing in myself anymore, as it has been one of the best choices I have made. She is the most gentle loving person. I would encourage anyone who wants a lasting rise in well being, or wanting some excellent guidance to contact Jenny. She is truly AMAZING!

Hi there, My name is Claus; I am a Clinical Psychologist. I work for the Mental Health Department in a Hospital (in Upstate NY). In my practice, I utilize different approaches aimed to minimize the impact of mental disorders. I do believe that we are an extraordinary society, and for many reasons, some of us have parted from what is important to us. We all have the opportunity to be a better person; sometimes all we need is the right tool to accomplish that goal. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance to you… Best, Claus

I have been working as an intuitive counselor since 2005, which inspired me to become certified as a Personal life coach. Even though intuitive counseling was rewarding, I wanted to help clients on a much broader scope than just predictions and advice. I noticed most people calling didn't Know how change, and was only getting by on a reading until they spoke with me. Not only did I give them an straightforward reading, but I also worked with my clients so the broke their stuck patterns. After realizing, I was doing a combination of Intuitive counseling/Life coaching I decided it was time to start my coaching business so that I can reach a broader audience and give them the tools they need to empower themselves. Services As a Intuitive counseling/life coaching consists of helping people understand what is going on internally as well as externally with themselves, and others who are in their lives. In other words, I assist them on how to get to the next level and give advice on life questions. This can be tied in with cognitive and behavioral patterns. Secondly, I help my clients understand why their relationships seem to be turbulent the same way a therapist; “ Nope I am not a therapist, nor do I claim to be” would explain. Therefore, when a customer calls I advise them on various types of relationships from family, friends, and romantic partners, gain insight into your career path, jobs and money. In addition, I help clients gain insight that will help you get through complex financial situations. Hence, when a client is not sure what the next step in your life should be, my aim is to show them how to get over the hump. Lastly, clients call me about painful situations from their past, why these things happened to them, and how to overcome it. Moreover, how I do my calls is a combination, life coaching, expert advice, psychic ability, intuition, and my education in psychology to help my clients"I am not a psychologist

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.
