Yelp Rating White

Our career coaches have helped thousands of people find meaningful work.

We integrate your desire to find something you’re passionate about with the practical need to build a successful career. If you want to love your work, we want to work with you.

Who We Work With

Our clients usually fall into one of the following 3 profiles:

1. You have the feeling you’re meant for something bigger.

You want to love your work. You want to make a difference in the world. You have the passion and motivation, the problem is you can’t figure out what to do.

We can help you find your true calling.

2. You’ve never liked your work and you’re overdue for a change.

You may have tried to figure it out on your own, taken a few career assessments, seen a career counselor or career coach but nothing has worked. You’re dissatisfied and it’s getting harder to keep doing it.

We can guide you through the deep work necessary to get to your essence and connect it to a career path that fits.

3. You’re feeling stuck. It’s time to take your career to the next level.

You hit a plateau and you’re feeling stagnant. Maybe you were passed up for a promotion, or you’re not having the success you feel is possible. You don’t necessarily want to find an entirely new career but something needs to change.

Our career coaches can help you reinvent your work and take it to the next level.

Over the last 17 years, we’ve worked with everyone. Young up and coming professionals, 60 year old medical doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, CEOs of tech start-ups, corporate professionals, students, creatives, non-profit professionals, and everyone in between.

If you’ve heard the calling to find your path, you’re our people.

Career Coaching Helped Me Land My Dream Job Testimonial From Robert


Chief Advancement Officer, San Francisco Bay Area

Before: I was an executive leader at a non-profit. My job was stressful and draining and it was spilling over into my personal life. I knew it was time to move on but I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do next or how to figure it out. I was struggling to find time to prioritize making a career change because my existing job was so consuming and we were in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. I was stuck.

After: For the first time in my career I feel like I am in the driver’s seat. That feels strange to say as a 56-year-old man, but it’s true. I used to be more reactive, meaning that I would take the opportunities that came my way. Now I’m proactive about pursuing opportunities that are a good fit for me because I know what I want and I’m confident in the value that I bring. I got my dream job as Chief Advancement Officer for an organization that advances racial justice and equity in the outdoor and environmental movement. Given my love for nature and the outdoors, as well as my interest in both social justice and fundraising, it’s perfect.

Now I'm a furniture designer. I make wooden furniture from design to completion and I love going into my small garage workshop every day. My clients love me (that never happened in sales). Honestly I couldn't be happier. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

MarkFurniture Designer, Los Angeles

I was looking for a career change for about a year and wasn't sure how to go about it. I now work for an amazing company and I could not have done it without Adrian's program.

AllisonPublic Relations, San Francisco

Career coaching with Daniel was undoubtedly one of the best investments I've made in my life. 1) I start my MBA in Design in 2 weeks. Before working with Daniel, I felt it impossible to ever commit to a graduate program, while knowing this was a life-long dream. 2) I have more balance in my life. I'm more in tune with what makes me happy, what fuels me, and I have a clearer path to achieving things previously thought unimaginable.

DamienSan Francisco

I knew I wanted to make a career change but lacked clarity of what exactly I wanted to pursue next. The career coaching program helped me explore my passions and strengths and narrow down what careers would be most fulfilling. For me, it was a relatively quick process - I went from sales to an events team in marketing.

RomiEvent Marketing, Los Angeles

I felt completely lost in my career. I woke up a year out of college with a fancy job and a fancy degree and a sense of total emptiness, meaninglessness. Coaching helped me define my interests and start to take concrete steps towards working on them. I’m currently Senior Product Marketing Manager at, and I'm happier here than I’ve been at any job.

Amazingly, it only took a month to see the pieces come together. New opportunities were presented and doors opened that I never would have expected or anticipated. After two months of sessions I was on a clear career path and had a new awesome job offer which I accepted. A Path That Fits worked well for me and I'd recommend it highly to anyone who's looking for a change and willing to do the work to make that change. In my case, it's been an incredible experience.

Career Coaching FAQs

Looking for more information about our career coaching services? If there’s something we can’t answer here, don’t hesitate to contact our team.

What is career coaching?

A career coach works one-on-one with a client to help them achieve their career goals and maximize their potential for success and fulfillment. Career coaching is the process by which a career coach guides a client to determine what career path is the best fit for their innate strengths, passions, personality type, values, and purpose.

At A Path That Fits, our approach to career coaching is both practical and purposeful. Our career coaching methodology integrates your desire to do meaningful work that you love with the practical need to build a sustainable career that supports your lifestyle. Our career coaches incorporate mindfulness and deep listening to help you get in touch with your deeper calling. We employ all the latest tools, techniques, science backed psychological research, and peak performance strategies to take your career to the next level.

How much does career coaching cost?

The cost of career coaching varies based on the expertise of the coach and the specific goals of each client. Career coaching can cost anywhere from $100-$1000 per session depending on experience, reputation, and skill of the coach. It may seem expensive but even at the high end of that range, career coaching is a worthwhile investment if you think about the enormous financial and emotional benefit of finding the right career and landing your dream job.

Detailed pricing for our services is available for all of our packages here.

At A Path That Fits, we offer the highest quality coaching at a fair price. We aren’t the most expensive or the cheapest career coaches out there. Given that we are among the highest-rated career coaching companies in the country according to Yelp, with 17 years of experience and 1000s of clients coached, we are proud of the outstanding value we provide. All of our coaches go above and beyond to help you achieve your career goals. We care deeply. We also offer scholarships to make coaching accessible to people with financial circumstances that would otherwise prevent them from benefiting from career coaching.

What is the difference between career coaching and career counseling?

Career counseling is a more traditional and academic approach to assisting students and professionals in determining the right career path and finding employment. Career coaching evolved out of career counseling to provide a more creative and uniquely tailored approach to helping people find work they love and realize their full potential. Career counselors are more commonly found in educational institutions while career coaches are most commonly found in private practice serving actively employed professionals. Career counselors are trained to use career assessments to offer career recommendations whereas career coaches are more likely to use a combination of career assessments and facilitate a more holistic understanding of a client’s strengths, passions, values, and purpose.

At A Path That Fits, our approach to career coaching is based on the belief that everyone has a unique combination of innate strengths and passions that shape them to thrive in a particular type of work. Our job as your career coach is to help you discover your gifts, passions, and purpose, translate those core parts of who you are into a concrete career path, and then activate your full potential to do your very best work.

Why is career coaching important?

Career coaching helps you identify the career that best fits you, enabling you to be more successful by leveraging your strengths and more fulfilled by engaging your passions and purpose. A skilled career coach can also help you overcome the doubts and insecurities that hold you back, develop your confidence, and activate your full potential. Career coaching is life changing.

At A Path That Fits, we’ve seen the importance of coaching illustrated thousands of times by way of the positive changes our clients make. We’ve seen clients start multi-million dollar companies, lead non-profits, publish best selling books, land their dream jobs at companies like Apple and Airbnb, and follow their calling to become psychotherapists, fashion designers, and physicians to name just a few. We’ve collected hundreds of client examples that highlight why career coaching is important.
