I suffer from panic attacks but my coach worked with me and it has been almost a year since my last panic attack. My coach explored many parts of my life and feelings that I never thought affected me. She helped me work through so many issues. I'm still a work in progress but would have never made it this far if it wasn't for my coaching experience.

What a blessing. She is not just a "psychic" life coach. She is gifted in ways that only the Lord could do. Her knowledge base is remarkable and her empathy is authentic and real. She helped me through a spiritual crisis and recurring grief. I also received energy healing from her. Thank you Sabrina, thank you. I recommend her service's because you will be amazed.

Ed is an amazing person all around. He is perfectly suited to his career. The many times I have seen Ed, he has been nothing but professional, supportive and charismatic to my past, current and any future issues. Ed is very approachable, easy to talk to and breaks everything down to show how nutrition and exercise are not just a fad, but a life process.

Atty. Harry W. Skene met and exceeded all of my needs, concerning my divorce. Before I met Atty. Skene. I knew exactly what I wanted, but knew I needed legal guidance in case things got difficult and they did. His counsel, skills and life coaching advise were superb and set my mind at ease. Atty. Skene was compassionate and understanding and helped me through each step of every process and clearly explained everything. I am now happily divorced and the effort on my part was very little considering all that was involved, property settlement, child support and even dealing with my change of name. Atty. Skene really made this an easy, smooth and affordable process for me. I would highly recommend Practical Law and Life to anyone seeking legal assistance. Thank you Harry.

My interaction with this woman was incredible. I'm an empath therefore I'm able to read people just by their words and energetic vibrations. She did an amazing job and she is a joyous person to interact with. You will be enriched just by being in her presence. I enjoyed our session very much. I felt a renewal of faith in humanity just in our conversation. I highly suggest working with this woman and I'm happy to even call her a friend now. Namaste.

I've been a patient of Steven's for 9 months now. I was desperate to change my life. Steven helped me achieve just that. He taught me how to look at life differently and how to truly be mindful. He's taught me how to calm my anxieties through the use of meditation. With Stevens help I have become the man my family deserves. I've found happiness in life once again and for that I am forever thankful to Steven.


Basically, we help people get what they want. We are experts in the coaching process and we do the following: - We uncover/identify the individual goals of the client. - We partner with the client in a solution-oriented process for achieving goals (taking constructive action, removing barriers, etc.). - We maintain positive accountability. We do this by being the following: - Objective - Nonjudgmental - Good listeners - Thinking and helping the client think “outside the box” - Supportive and motivating


Everyone else is cut from the same mold .. Although we are all as people cut of the same cloth just not the same make.

I provide life coaching to help my clients achieve their personal, business and professional goals. Areas that I have assisted my clients are: Weight Loss Health Improvements over chronic conditions, such as diabetes, COPD, arthritis, Fibromyalgia, lower back pain, low energy level Stress Reduction and Relaxation Meditation Instruction and group lessons Newborn issues


My service stems from years of working with others to get positive results.


As a mental health professional and client of both traditional and alternative models of awareness and growth, I grew tired and discouraged with looking at what was wrong with my clients and myself. So, I went back to school with the goal of learning a different and exciting approach to working with the life and love issues we typically find not so fun. Drawing upon my studies and daily practice of process-oriented psychology, I now educate and support people to use their life stories as resources and tools to help them change how they look at their life and relationship challenges. Using whatever issue, challenge or conflict as information coming through different channels, we look at disturbances with a different perspective which allows the wisdom of each unique process to reveal itself. I help people discover what's right about what they think is wrong.


I do not promote myself as a "psychic", rather the Tarot is used as a psychological guide to gain insight into the personalities of the persons I am working with. Although Tarot can be used for divination, (predictive), purposes, it is much better utilized as a psychological tool, in the style of Carl Jung. Other Life Coaches do not delve into the motivators behind behaviors of the people they are working with, I do. Once we find the "root cause" of a set of behaviors or cycles that a person may find themselves in, we are better able to adjust those behaviors in order for the person to achieve their goals, both immediate and long term.


The work I do stands out from the others because there is no fluff to what I do. Many coaches have felt they have to put off a fluffy vibe, and I'm way too down to earth and realistic to be that way. While I have a great sense of humor (that is a HUGE merit to my practice) I also take your process very seriously and will get straight to the key points that we need to work with. I've also been very well known for my ability to take the most complex of issues and simplify them so those pesky obstacles are easy to bust through!


I provide wellness and life coaching as well as business development counseling/coaching. Using certified Six Sigma transformational change methodology, I can effect positive change be it in health, life matters or business. With over 40 years in the medical device, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and cosmeceutical industries and in positions from research chemist to head of strategic business i have seen a myriad of situations that required professional intervention and problem solving. With special consulting in PMBOK project management along with the Six Sigma Black belt and years of experience my credentials are impeccable. If you need help with a major health, life or business problem I am sure I can offer a cost effective solution that will make your life easier and happier.


I provide you with tools to overcome your health challenges and show you how to stay well into the future.

I have yet to find someone who puts together the tools I have to not only help someone heal physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally, but also access and fully utilize all of their full potential. I believe human beings are innately good at heart. Unfortunately life's traumas can negatively affect people to act in ways that hurt themselves and others. Healing these traumas brings freedom and enables one to experience safety and satisfaction.


Besides my extensive knowledge and background, I actually truly care about you and your results. I will never bail, in 50/50.

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.
