Momma a la Carte added to the joy of being a mother and bringing life into the world. Through the moments of worry, frustration, and confusion, Momma a la Carte knew what I needed. I have worked with Mommy a la Carte through the whole baby registry process, bringing our first daughter home, as well as her first birthday extravaganza. They have been (and still are) available when called upon with various parental questions and indecisions. The guidance given was sound and needed! I truly have appreciated being able to seek assistance without any worry. The services of Mommy a la Carte made tasks seem less complicated. What would I ever do without help being only a Mommy a la Carte away?!
As a recent graduate, I needed to update my resume. Ms. Charlene was able to create an amazing resume that highlights my skills and the career I'm looking to enter into. She was great with responding quickly and providing feedback for job search. I will definitely recommend her service to anyone in need of resume service.
Raffi Bilek is a phenomenal resource. He actively listens before he speaks, and provides meaningful feedback and direction that clearly reflects my unique situation. His comments are wise, productive, and well thought-out. His humor also helps me feel comfortable and makes him relatable sometimes it is the spoonful of sugar that helps the medicine go down. I am indebted to him for his active listening and articulate, wise, and compassionate guidance. Thank you!
I had the pleasure of working with Cesaire Career Consulting recently. I was in need of a revamp for my resume and was referred by a friend to use CCC. My resume was changed from a doer to an achiever. I’m pleased with the quality of service that was provided. I would use CCC again.

She’s my shining star, sunshine on a cloudy day. My life is so much greater since she came into it!!! I’d be lost without her guidance!
Anne is wonderful! She is a great listener and her upbeat personality and guidance always make me feel better when I am being hard on myself. She helps put things in perspective when I can't see it myself and is patient in the process when I say, no, no, that's not how it is. Then later I realize she was spot on! Just took me some time to get there myself.
Having Mia be apart of your spiritual journey will change your life for the better. I am profoundly grateful for her guidance and encouragement, it has made all the difference in bettering my life and my attitude towards the world. You won't regret choosing Mia as your spiritual teacher/motivational coach.
Working in a fast paced, growing organization has its challenges. Couple that with some M&A activity, and you can find a very stressed out organization. Dolores was instrumental in not only providing me with guidance on how to maneuver the ever changing challenges, but also helped keep the organization focused and not distracted by all the exciting activity.
Tawawn is an excellent Goal Settibg/Vision Board Coach. She helped me dig deeper into the purpose of my goals and then helped me map out a detailed journey as to how those goals would come to fruition. She's straightforward, cuts no cards yet gentle when necessary. I'm grateful for she intuitiveness and guidance along the way. She makes herself available for my "SOS moments" while gently nudging me back on track. For someone seeking her service/coaching, you WILL be well pleased. Tawawn is worth her weight on gold; a great coach to have in your corner.
So far I've had one hypnosis session with Julian to help me with focus during my last semester in college. I had never experienced hypnosis before and he took the time to explain the entire process and answer all of my questions so I felt comfortable. Julian is extremely knowledgeable in this line of work and is very attentive to how you feel and what you want to focus on. The session itself was extremely relaxing (his voice has that effect) and with his guidance I was able to visualize my ideal state (in the session) to execute it in real life. Initially I wasn't sure it would work, but I have to say, I felt a difference immediately! The proof for me was seen later in that same week when I submitted a term paper EARLIER than the due date which is hard for a habitual procrastinator like I used to be. Since then, I have consulted him for guidance and support as a life/business coach. His perspective and advice has been invaluable thus far. I'm making progress much faster than I was on my own and he holds me accountable to my goals through unending support and encouragement. I cannot thank him enough!
Sophia is a talented experience coach and I love working with her. She patiently listens, asks profound questions, leads her session in a manner of self-discovery and exploration. Somehow magically I often arrive to my own solutions with her gentle professional guidance. In a couple of last sessions, Sophia helped me create my dream calendar that I love. It was scary and overwhelming to start setting goals at first. But Sophia masterfully laid out an easy-to-follow plan that turned this project into an inspiring session. Now full with dreams and with a clear vision ahead of me I'm ready to start the New Year, all thanks to Sophia! Highly recommend!
I have spoken to a few coaches before and found their methods to be more instructional than motivational. During my time with Kyle he not only kept me motivated, he helped me to discover a personal power that was very much hidden. He was very in tuned with my goals and not only kept me focused; also provided guidance for me to come to a space of clarity and understand that I was making my situation much bigger than it truly was and it wasn't anything that I could not handle. For that, I will be forever grateful to/for him.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Quianna over the past month. We decided that a package of five sessions would match my needs and we went well above and beyond what I was expecting to get out of our meetings! Not only did Quianna help me narrow down which field I should be looking for a career in, but she also helped me discover what motivates me professionally and why I was so unhappy in my previous position. An awesome part of her approach is how she starts with the foundation of who you are. I hadn't wanted to admit that I was severely lacking in professional confidence. However, she encouraged me to tackle that head on before we began talking about a new career field and those initial discussions were immensely helpful. Logistically speaking, scheduling and communicating with Quianna between sessions was very easy as well. Over the course of our sessions, I contacted her via text message, phone call and email and she was always very prompt and friendly in her replies. On a personal level, I truly enjoyed working with Quianna. She was incredibly warm and understanding and made me feel that I could be comfortable and open with her about what I was looking for and how I felt about my new job search. Not only did she help me before I began looking for a new job in a new field, but I believe that she can help others with any variety of questions or problems about their current or future work experiences.
I have had the pleasure of working with Rick on a number of occasions to utilize his expertise in career coaching, resume writing, and business consulting. As a coach and consultant, he is a great listener and provides useful feedback and ideas for action. I have found him to have good availability and always responds quickly. He is professional, discreet, and I trust him completely. I recommend him highly! Christopher Porter
I contacted Ms. Cathcart during a difficult time in my life. I was homeless and in a shelter when I first heard her words of encouragement. Throughout this past year she has provided me with inspiration, motivation, and has encouraged me to accomplish the impossible. With her guidance and teaching I am now living in a 3 bdrm home, driving a Mercedes Benz, and living in the belief that I can accomplish anything set before me. Thanks for everything, Nikiah Tyler
