At Awaken Creativity, it is my goal to help other people awaken their creativity and then use it to live a life that represents their fullest potential. I help people conquer fears and roadblocks so they can effectively manage time, feel balanced, and seize opportunities that value their creative ideas and potential. Utilizing a Cultivating Creative Dreams program, clients find they move deeper into their creativity by: - Getting unstuck, unblocked, and making creativity meaningful. - Transitioning with careers toward creative businesses. - Creating a life that reflects who you are: Your passions, interests, values, and what you want from life. - Fostering a mindset for creative problem-solving, innovation, and creative process. - Being more productive with creating products or ideas. - Become more balanced while incorporating creative dreams into your life. - Developing achievable goals that will empower your creativity and move your toward fulfilling creative dreams. I specialize in working with highly motivated and committed professionals who fall into one of four categories: - Career creatives. People whose primary income from doing some type of meaningful, creative, right-brain work such as artists, dancers, architects, graphic designers, and art instructors/teachers. I help these people achieve greater success in their creative careers through small business coaching and creativity coaching to help them reconnect with personal creativity again beyond their career. - Hobbyists who enjoy creative pursuits for the sake of the creative process and either want to delve further into their process, or may want to explore creativity at a deeper level. These people may want to venture into a new medium, find deeper purpose in their creative expressions, or overcome an obstacle preventing their creative success. - Hobbyists who are ready to take their creative expression to the next level and make a career and/or income from their creativity. With the use of small business coaching/consulting, as well as creativity coaching, these people will move their hobby into a profitable, branded business. - People who don't even consider themselves to be creative, but feel something meaningful and purposeful is missing from their lives. These people will be coached with a combination of life coaching and creativity coaching to get people to take risks and move into creative expressions.

My business focuses on changing the overall morale of employees in a business (small or large). It is no secret that when you change overall employee morale, creating happy and productive employees, you are positioned to change the level of productivity. With this accomplished your business profitability increases. I also focus on teaching leadership skills and competencies. I have found that many people come fresh from academia or have no practical leadership skill development or they are promoted from within an organization because they have proven to be a great worker and have not been taught basic leadership competencies. In either case, I am trained to teach, consult and coach emerging and experienced leaders, alike to success. I have three decades of corporate leadership experience.

I am able to detach from my products and services to listen to you and clearly understand your needs and wants before we start the coaching process. I can readily assess if you would be better off with another coaching organization. You see, if I am unable to serve you well, we both lose. I invest in the long term and that means I am invested in your long term success. I also depend on referrals for future business, so it’s important that we are the right fit; that I am able to give you the very best of me as your testimonials are what I ultimately aspire to earn (of course, I also charge a fee for my services as well ) I have walked in the shoes of many of my clients, thus my passion for helping others grow and succeed. And, because your success is my number one priority, I have invested in my personal growth receiving my coach training from the best of the nationally recognized coaching programs and mentors of coach mentors. It is because of my experience, my training and the passion that I provide to you and your employees with excitement and enthusiasm that you should choose the Center for Leadership Skills as your corporate coach/trainer. I love that my clients grow stronger in their leadership position: they build confidence; they are better positioned to manager their teams and see results very quickly.

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.
