The work I did with Cathy was invaluable to my job search. She has a gift for both tweaking the little details and helping me to focus on the big picture. She is great at providing encouragement, yet stretching her clients through gently challenging them. She is very nurturing, yet is adept at moving into a practical, no-nonsense ("New York Cathy") mode, and is good at recognizing which approach best serves the situation. In our sessions I felt valued and heard. Most importantly (at least to me), she provides perspective and context which helped to calm me down when I was feeling particularly anxious or vulnerable throughout the job search process. I highly recommend Cathy for anyone who is looking for help with a job search or for general life/career coaching. Thank you Cathy!

I have known Kara since the early stages of starting her business as a massage therapist, Reiki Master, hypnotherapist, Life Coach, teachings/classes on shamanism practice, and actually becoming a healer myself. Kara has been more helpful than I can put in words. I started my first counseling session with all my questions and concerns, setting intentions and goals while working together. She made it safe, easy and comfortable to open up. She Taught me to journey within myself where all the answers await. Each session was deep, powerful, inspiring and life changing. I feel so blessed to have had all 3 Reiki attunements with Kara. Each time was incredibly mystical and a deeply spiritual experience. Done in a small group setting, which made it feel intimate in a very comfortable environment. I felt surrounded by love, compassion and kindness. After this experience I have since felt profoundly connected to everyone and everything surrounding me. She has changed my life, which has opened me up to help change others around me. I HIGHLY recommend contacting her, attending classes/workshops, in person sessions or even over the phone appointments. It is truly a life-changing experience.

Going to a life coach wasn't something I ever thought I would do. As a successful business owner I feel confident, self motivated and love to challenge myself. I found myself feeling frustrated and confused when I began to procrastinate - for a year - on a professional project I really wanted to do. It made no sense to me. When I want to do something I typically would just do it or at the least, try. Not this time. For whatever reason I kept procrastinating and doing literally anything else during the time I set aside for the project. I have friends who have worked with coaches with great success so I reached out to Dara. I was drawn to her unique positive success coaching style and philosophy. It was the best decision I could have made. Not only did I make strides on the project, I ended up learning so much more about myself than I anticipated through her sessions, strategies and insightful recommendations. After only a handful of coach sessions I was able to begin the project and am now equipped with tools to embrace these types of struggles in the future. My advice - don't wait a year like I did! If you are feeling stuck - Call Dara. Bokhara Lashi San Francisco, CA

    Lis is the best Life Coach and Counselor I have ever know. She holds several degrees and has extensive experience working with adults in life crisis, providing tools and skills to resolve the problem of changing jobs, depression and poor mental outlooks, which can contribute to a poor quality of life and makes it very tough to be positive and develop habits to overcome adversity. She is well trained, with over 15 years expertise and success in helping others. Anyone would be very fortunate to have Lis assisting them with life challenges. Thank you. CM

    life coaching; three sessions of approx 1 hr each. Via phone. Reagan listened and grasped the major issues and showed this by reiteration with very useful comments and suggestions. Her suggestions were phrased softly not didactically; engaging rather than commanding. Her empathy was very evident as she connected well and her responses were on point. have been very surprised that someone so new to this skill set is so responsive and intuitive

    Reverend Jane married us in VT. She took all the necessary steps to insure she was qualified to conduct the ceremony in another state. We were very appreciative of her expertise. She also gently coached us through writing our vows. It was a lovely ceremony and Reverend Jane was a huge part of it. I do not think you will be disappointed if you choose her as your minister.

    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.
