Tammy was a wonderful addition to the team of caregivers providing support to my father; he was recently diagnosed with stage 4 primary liver cancer and was estimated with 2-4 weeks to live. Since we’ve moved him to hospice, he’s lost strength and become very foggy. Tammy rearrranged her scheduled when we expressed fear that he may not be alive three days from now, showed up to the hospice on time, and my father - in the middle of the session and for the first time in days - opened his eyes wide and introduce himself to her. We will undoubtedly bring her back into our care circle, and can’t express our gratitude for her work enough.

As a personal trainer for 15 years, my career has allowed me the fortitude to meet and work with 100's of trainers. When I met Scott, I knew that he possessed the ability to become a quality trainer, because his integrity was top notch. Not only is Scott eager to help others by sharing his passion and knowledge for fitness, but he is genuinely a great guy who can wear multiple "hats" - he is a motivator, he is caring, and he is professional. Scott will help educate you and keep you accountable.

Doug and I met while I was coaching at one of the top high school cross country programs in the state of Oregon. I had an injured athlete that he spent some time working on to get him healthy. That was the beginning of a 10 year relationship with the athletes that I have coached as well as my family of athletes. Doug's ability to find the root cause of the issue and work to a solution was the best we have found. Doug's technique and effectiveness created a verb by those that he worked on. My body is not functioning the right way...I need to be "Dulaked". Doug had a great following in Portland and when he moved to Arizona one of our athlete resource possee was gone. I highly recommend Doug in his practice.

First, Rose showed me how to let go of my fears and worries. Then she taught me to concentrate on my talents. Now I apply for jobs I really want instead of ones that just pay the bills. She lifted a big burden off my shoulders. Thank you, Rose!

I drink – consciously and comfortably. But it took a lot of awareness and thought, which I was able to achieve through Teresa’s insightful help. Alcohol played a role in my childhood, where I would see my mother drinking multiple goblets of white wine every night. I know now that she was medicating chronic depression. As I entered my forties, I found myself doing the same thing, but didn’t worry too much because “it was just a few glasses of white wine.” Then life got harder, what with life challenges, including caring for my aging parents and a brother on disability. I give myself credit for being a pretty bright bulb – I’ve got a Ph.D., a thriving business, and I studied chemical dependency and conducted substance abuse interventions with addicted individuals. It took a long time for me to realize the toll my nightly glasses of white wine were taking on my life, even when they evolved into a love for bourbon cocktails. I was slowing down, gaining weight, becoming increasingly more depressed and less interested in enjoying the world around me. I’ve never wanted to stop drinking entirely – I’ll be frank about that. But as I realized the price I was paying in terms of my own satisfaction with my life, with Teresa’s help I began to examine when I drank and why, learning that much like my mother, I was medicating stress. No longer willing to ignore my dissatisfaction with my life, I focused on what Teresa calls the “pink cloud” – the elements of life that bring fulfillment. As I worked to design a richer life, I also developed an awareness of my drinking. No longer do I unconsciously settle in with my “innocent” wine at night, or conveniently find ways to meet up with friends who like to drink. Instead, I have cut back on my stressors, introduced a lot of pleasurable activities into my life and focus on my pink cloud. Do I still drink? Yes, but very consciously. And if it goes beyond social enjoyment into using it to numb stress, I focus on self-care instead of self-medication. What am I not giving myself that leads to the desire to medicate with alcohol? What do I need to do to take very good care of myself and live in my pink cloud? Not every woman who struggles with alcohol is an alcoholic. But those of us who have the courage to look at how it impacts our life will benefit greatly from Teresa’s insights and support. Life is short and we deserve to live it well.


"Hi! I'm Daniel..." The first thing you should know about me is... I am not a guru. Or an exalted spiritual leader. I'm not a psychologist or psychiatrist. And I don't have a PhD in counseling either. Yet, my entire life I've felt called by something. That call is the desire and gift to help others awaken... to their own natural power to shape and direct the flow of abundance into their lives and the lives of all they touch. And the best part is... When you accept the responsibility to direct that ever present flow... You access what some call "the effortless effort". Meaning abundance flows into your life so would take a conscious effort to stem the flood. "Unfortunate circumstances", "personal injustices" and "negative" anything can become powerless to move you from your peace...with no more power to stop the flow of abundance than trying to block a waterfall with your hand. "Synchronicity", "Fortunate circumstances", and "positive" everything can fill your days with light and abundance flowing to you in startling, delightful, and even delicious ways. If you are hearing the call... and are searching for a compassionate, clear thinking someone to help you re-calibrate your "ears" so you can hear your own inner knowing and reconnect with your natural power...I may be able to help you. I help people... -> Reconnect with inner knowing...the guide that naturally moves you toward your own highest good and magical life -> I help wounded people understand the emotional patterns, reactivity, and relationship dynamics that cause anxiety, insecurity, conflict and lack of direction -> I help people FEEL GOOD again when they can't remember how I also help people... -> Release the flow of abundance and receive a higher quality of life, love, work via "effortless effort" -> Discover and enjoy a fulfilling and amazing life of growth and contribution -> I also help people who seem to be blocked by an invisible force holding them back from achieving their dream goals or career goals...whether those be entrepreneurial, fitness, health or otherwise. The first step is a relaxed chat over phone or skype. I call it an "Insight and Discovery Session". The session typically lasts 60 - 90 minutes. And you can put away your wallet... the session is complimentary. There is no pressure or obligation to hire me. If, at the end of our time together, we mutually feel comfortable and would like to work together, I'll help you create the appropriate coaching package to help get you where you want to go. Either way, I wish for you a life of abundance and light. Looking forward to meeting you! -- Daniel ==================================================================== Some technical "stuff" and obligatory "horn tooting" about how I came to help others... I'm a former student of the school of "hard knocks" and permanent student of life I'm certified by Robbins-Madanes Institute, Strategic Intervention, The National Academy of Sports Medicine as a Personal Trainer, Fitness Nutrition Specialist, Sports Fitness Specialist, and Performance Enhancement Specialist ( I work with mind and body since they are inextricably linked) I've coached Olympians, TV stars, Recording Artists, Rock Stars, Politicians, Business Leaders ...and they all have the same issues, hang-ups, insecurities, wrinkles, tics, hopes and fears as everyone else. Often more so. And they also have the same POWERS as everyone else does. Most often they just have figured out how to tap into that abundant flow available to all who want it For the last decade I've been a regular guest on AM Northwest here in Portland... and spent the last 3 of those as the "on-air trainer" appearing on the second Monday of every month. I had my own radio call-in show on Z-100 that was the #1 noon show and ran for 3 years straight. A gave out advice and answered live calls on air. I've been featured in, seen on, or quoted in: USA Today, AM Northwest, FOX, Z-100, ABC, The Oregonian, and Web M.D. All the best in your search. If you'd like to talk, let's connect. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- NOTE: Although I love working with all sorts of challenges, my scope of practice is not medical. I'm not a psychotherapist or psychiatrist. I don't work with disorders. People who NEED a psychotherapist or psychiatrist have challenges beyond the scope of a Life Coach. If you feel that is you, please seek the help of a medical professional.

With twenty years of experience, I pay a lot of attention to non-verbal as well as verbal communication. This is especially useful in relationship counseling. Non-verbal communication can show sides of ourselves which we may not be aware of but others notice. The good news is that noticing a new side to oneself can lead to welcome change. New sides to oneself can lead the way into change that comes naturally. I notice the difference between change that comes naturally and change that comes with strain. The strain usually isn't sustainable, change that fits one’s nature is. I've taught conflict facilitation in Portland State University's graduate facilitation program. I've spent many years developing attitudes and skills which allow us to work through inner and outer conflict.

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.
