Linda and I quickly formed a working relationship that is helping me to resolve some conflicts that have distracted me from other, more productive pursuits. Her "assignments" have proven very insightful and beneficial, especially through a stressful time involving serious illness in my immediate family. Linda's balance of vision paired with practicality works for me and clarifies my own instincts. She is a real asset as a life coach!!

Working with Jared helped me realize and achieve goals I didn’t have the confidence to go after on my own. Jared was encouraging and yet challenged me during each session to look beyond my own fears so I could achieve my goals. I took steps and went back to school and am now working as a nurse! I would not have been able to do this without having Jared in my corner , providing me the tools to have the confidence and the boldness in myself to pursue my goals and dreams! I highly recommend Jared as a life coach! Reach out to him! Let him help you like he has helped me and many others! Thank You Jared!!!

I wanted to write a review to share with others the impact Lori's guidance has made on my life. In the brief time I have come to know her she has intuitively and masterfully shepherded me through an extra-ordinary number of life changes I've gone through in the past year. She has been instrumental in helping me achieve a quality of life and sense of well being that I have never known. Her extraordinary insight into the causes of limiting behavior and your easy access to effective solutions have helped me maximize the time we have spent together by allowing me to break through many more barriers than I ever though possible. Far beyond simply helping me through some bad days, she has equipped me with the tools necessary to continue my own personal transformation from passive observer of my life into a passionate, intentional participant. I believe her true effectiveness comes from deeper within, based in the qualities that make someone an extraordinary Godly human being. Her enthusiasm and general regard for the well being of others, her understanding of human nature, spirituality and her genuine love of helping others become the best version of themselves truly sets her apart. More than a teacher or a coach, but a true inspiration and mentor. She has help reveal to me a better path, one that was obscured by my own limiting beliefs. I have done things that I never thought was possible along with providing me with a template of how to live the rest of my life and always plan for success! Truly Life Changing!! Thank You Lori Lockemy Sincerely, Cristina Williams RN Johns Hopkins Hoptail

    I met with Nikki for a series of coaching sessions at a time when I was experiencing fear about my ability to grow my business. Feeling confused and doubtful, my thinking would get stuck in circular arguments, but Nikki has a keen ear. Her questions, her ability to point out and acknowledge areas where I had made some discovery or gain that I perhaps overlooked, and her open and non-judgmental approach allowed me to discover the way forward. I soon began making decisions and planning with confidence and clarity. I can't see where anything was lacking in my experience with Nikki!

    My experience with Christi has been excellent. I've decided to move on to something new, professionally, without really knowing what I wanted that to look like. Christi asked some great questions, provided some really useful feedback, and right from the start took a very personal interest in helping me navigate this decision successfully. Our sessions have been really helpful and also inspiring, in that it's pretty clear Christi has navigated this change herself, and found something she's really meant to do. This is still a work in progress for me and I feel like our conversations have yielded perspectives and decisions that are going to stick with me for a long time. This was my first coaching experience and it's gone well beyond what I had hoped to get out of it. I also found it very easy to do this remotely, over the phone — it was as effective as (and maybe a little more convenient than) in-person meetings.

    Working with Rick has been a really good experience so far. I had a few items that I wanted a career coach to help provide feedback/guidance on and I really think working with Rick will help through these items. One item is more of the solid goal planning I think most professionals may want to seek assistance with from time-to-time. As the CEO of a company in a similar industry, I am looking forward to his perspective as we work through that process. Another item is not as streamlined as goal planning but offering guidance on challenges faced at work. Rick shares a very fresh perspective which balances individual awareness to situational reality (i.e., how are you as the client experiencing the actual challenge at work). Rick is astute and catches onto dynamics very quickly so he is able to assess situations -- this is likely the most important skill a career coach can bring to helping with these situations. I am early into this process with Rick and I already feel that his offerings have helped me gain a new perspective on #2 so that I can focus on #1. It's time well spent to invest in yourself within your career and I believe Rick will help compliment that.

    I have been in Laura's coaching for a while. I already know sales pretty well, but Laura goes deeper. She is creative, has integrity, is easy to work with, and definitely pushes you to do more. I myself got out of a slump and have been increasing every month double the month previous. Laura is awesome.

    Hi! Are you wanting yoga lessons, wellness coaching or stress management consulting? My main wellness program is called, ESSENTIAL WELL-BEING SOLUTIONS and combines Pain Relief Counseling, Yoga Therapy, Stress Management, & Wellness Coaching. This program is an introduction to people who are just learning about or wanting to deepen their understanding of health, wellness, and personal improvement. As such my sessions can include: private yoga lessons, lifestyle consulting, wellness education, and holistic treatments for renewed vitality & inner peace. For optimum health, it is now widely accepted that there exists a body-mind connection. Your physical health is impacted by your mental health, & vice versa. Many people do not know all of their options when treating certain conditions. My Health & Wellness Coaching helps you reduce stress, address your emotional well-being, and cultivate a healthy lifestyle. PAIN RELIEF COUNSELING It's difficult to think clearly about your options when you're in pain. So, sometimes the best thing to do is begin with Pain Relief Counseling. Let's take an hour or more to have you tell your story and sort out your recognizable paths to wellness & well-being. We can do this via phone or in-person. I offer group sessions for families as well, who are challenged by one or more family members dealing with enduring health concerns. With over 20 years experience, I invite to you explore the possibilities with me. YOGA THERAPY Yoga is an ancient form of healthy reconditioning which address physical, mental, emotional & spiritual well-being, as well as a holistic & balanced lifestyle. Having taught yoga since I was 17, I have studied it & related topics for many, many years now. I am patient & inspiring, working with clients who want to learn about holistic living, balancing their lifestyle, creating sanctuary for themselves, doing yoga & cultivating some kind of meditation practice. You may select Private Hatha Yoga instruction for individuals, couples, or small groups, to achieve your wellness goals. I also teach other branches of yoga, as there is a branch of yoga for every personality. STRESS MANAGEMENT COACHING For anyone who needs to slow down and recover from the overwhelm or stress in their life, I also offer Stress Management Coaching. These sessions can be via phone or in-person. They will help you resolve problems at home or work, ease your transition during a major life change, or address your health and well-being goals. You may opt for coaching via phone or at my center in Towson, and request a combination of sitting or reclining therapies to address your issues. Some people find aromatherapy, breath work, hypnotherapy or regular talking therapy most helpful. Your wellness journey is unique to you and is something I can help you sort out. HEALTH & WELLNESS COACHING Wellness Coaching of any kind may be done in person at our Towson location or by phone. When you're in overwhelm or are facing a major life crisis, you may want to choose this coaching program to survey the wide range of modalities which can assist you in not only relieving symptoms, but in creating a healthier lifestyle. Your recipe for health & optimal well-being probably consists of a combination of learning healthy habits & lifestyle choices. Each session, we will discuss what is working for you & what is most challenging. Then, I will suggest some ideas for you to try in-between our sessions and develop your "Wellness Action Plan". As the weeks progress, you will see rapid progress, the more time you can devote to your healing journey.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
