Working with Twana was a truly wonderful experience. She has a very calming and soothing way of approaching her clients. I felt very understood and I knew that my story and what I was struggling with was important to her. She was able to get me to open up and discover things for myself that I previously had no access to. I felt so relaxed and very comforted each time I spoke with her. Thank you for your coaching Twana! I appreciate you a lot!

This was my first experience using a life coach and I have really enjoyed it. David is very genuine, has a kind heart and has made me feel cared about. He has a gift for seeing objectively what were often not aware of subjectively. In that respect I value having a life coach as he is not someone who is going to tell you what you need to do, but rather help you see what you are doing and how to attract positive things into your life. I plan to continue to see David as my drama in life continues, lol. I would highly recommend.

This training team really took care of me. Aside from their professionalism, they are extremely personable creating an incredibly comfortable environment. They were encouraging, supportive and realistic with goal management. By far the biggest bang for your buck on personal training. I would highly recommend these guys to everyone, no matter what fitness level - they are prepared to meet your needs - from college athlete to "just turned 40 and need to get back in shape" to everyone in between ;)

​I rarely have the time to write recommendations, but Sapna is the type of person that makes me want to carve out time to speak about her beautiful nature. It is rare to find an individual that has so much energy and so much love for the things that she participates in and the people she helps. She is a connector, a motivator, a cheerleader, and a friend.  Sapna gives you 100 percent of her attention and her selfless nature causes you to wonder what you can do for her.  I was so excited to learn that Sapna has chosen to use her gifts to coach others. She is a nurturer at heart and her coaching will be guided by her desire to see individuals realize their greatness. Since I have worked with Sapna, I have moved many steps forward in my career and I look forward to continuing the journey with her.

Hope is an excellent life coach and has helped me deal with many issues throughout our time together. She really does love helping people, I feel like she is really invested in my progress. Her joy at my success makes me feel good after the pain of growth. I mostly work with her on general life issues, but one of the many sessions we've done together is Career Clarity. During this session I was finally able to recognize what career path I wanted to take. It took me 35 years to find out what I want to do when I grow up, but at least I made it :) Thank you Hope!

Marilyn Feinstein coached me in ways that gave me the self-confidence to reach my goals. Drawing on my positive experiences, she helped me apply my own strengths to the challenges I faced. She helped me not only with goal setting and designing a plan, but gently helped me make sure I followed through with the actions and commitment I made to myself in achieving my goals. She used effective techniques in helping me work through anticipated problems (i.e., with difficult sales prospects) and move forward. I always looked forward to my coaching sessions, as Marilyn created a warm and safe environment in which she helped stimulate my growth. I highly recommend Marilyn to anyone who wants to grow personally or professionally. Carol High, Principal Broker Carol High Commercial Real Estate, Inc.

    Melanie is gifted! I worked with her for several months as my life coach. She is so down to earth and supportive that I felt completely comfortable working with her. She gave me such good insights and helped me see my strengths and taught me how to work on my weaknesses. After every meeting, I walked away feeling understood, motivated and excited. I had so many revelations about myself and learned so many new techniques to further my progress. Thank you, Melanie, for helping me see my value and giving me new skills to further my success. I truly enjoyed our time together. Your support has been invaluable. My life is truly better having known you!!!

    Roberta’s coaching has helped me discover my goals and the changes I needed to make to reach those goals. By asking specific and targeted questions, she showed me that I was capable of figuring out my own solutions. Roberta motivated me to move forward and kept me accountable by having me create action steps. Emphasis on follow through ensured that I continued to make progress.

      I hired Ms. Melfi Penn to help me organize my papers, folders and other office supplies. Even though I am somewhat of a hoarder, Ms. Penn was very professional. She did not judge me. I explained to her that I wanted to be more organized and she helped me decide which items to keep, discard or donate. I appreciated her work. I've hired her several times over the past few years, mainly every three months for maintenance.

        Charlotte's wisdom, grace and kindness have helped me move through some of the greatest challenges of my life without the fear, anxiety and doubt that have weighed me down in the past. She's got a way of framing the most seemingly complex, heavy problems in a way that makes them seem like extremely small hurdles to overcome – or, in some cases, to simply walk away from. I can't wait until my next session!

        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.
