David's approach to therapy is different than others. Instead of rehashing complaints, dramas, fears and becoming very articulate about what's wrong, he helps you actually move on and feel better. He does this by showing you how you are the active agent in your life and that you don't have to be your mood's servant. You have responsibility for how you feel and he gives you tools for seeing things in a new light that lifts the burden and gives you new eyes that can see the world at peace instead of in torment.

Verified review

Kimberly was my life coach. She asked what goals I wanted to achieve and when, it was then her job to make a path for me. She not only made the path, she guided me through it. I achieved several of my goals, including a career change. There were times when I strayed from my goals but Kimberly would not allow me to stray to far and got me back on track. I recommend her to anyone that has goals in life but does not know how to achieve them or where to start. Kimberly still reaches out to make sure things are going well.

Despite being apprehensive about seeing someone and sharing some painful info, Coach Huckabee made me feel valuable & meaningful. In 1 valuable session, he made me feel like I had a voice worth hearing and began to help me rebuild the self-esteem lost. While I know its just a beginning, I am happy to finally be working with someone who isn't making me feel guilty or always interrupting and looking at a clipboard or taking notes. Thanx for a new start Coach Huckabee! See you soon!

I went to Darlene because I had issues with forgiveness. Not only did Darlene coach me through the process of forgiving which seemed easy, there were deeper issues with me that I did not realize were issues, things I had to face and things I had to get hold of. During my four sessions with her, I learned to let go of things that did not add value to my life, my happiness and that blocked me from forgiveness. I was given homework but the hard work took place when face to face with Darlene. She's gentle but tough, she knows when you're trying to avoid the question or when your trying to take the easy way out and she was not going to let that happen. If you let Darlene do the work and you work with her, you are going to benefit greatly as I have. I had no idea that I was in the way of my own happiness and now that Darlene has shown me how to get out of my way and gave me the tools to stay out of my way, I am in a better head space and the weight I have been carrying on my shoulders, in my heart and more importantly in my head has been lifted and I owe so much gratitude to Darlene and the work she put in to "fixing" me. Because of her, I think differently, react differently and now I walk differently in my life and Love It. I truly believe Darlene was sent to me by God. It was through her many workshop invitations that I finally attended one and realized that so many other women had problems deeper than mine but this one particular workshop took us to church and when the word was focused on forgiveness, I knew or should I say thought that was something Darlene could help me with. So at the end of the service and in the house of the Lord, I was impelled to approach Darlene to ask for help and it was the best guidance I had received. To wrap this up, Darlene knows her business and if you're willing to do the work, you too can get my results. Thank you Darlene for not only making me see myself but for checking in with me from time to time to see how I'm doing. It's nice to know that you'll be there if I need you.

I came to Alex with what I thought were a wide variety of issues. Rather than work directly on those, he asked the right questions to help me work on myself. He doesn't just help change careers for the better, he helps you discover the best sides of you and he provides insightful advice on how to leverage your best qualities for career growth. Be prepared to work hard for the changes ahead, and be prepared to feel empowered. Alex will help you bring out the best in you.

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.
