For the last few years, I've been seeing a life coach. She's been great in helping me to gain perspective, address certain problems in my life and in my own habits. Overall, it's been great and I think I could still benefit from the coaching. The problem is that, recently, I've lost a ton of respect for her. Details within! [more inside]

What is the best, most proactive type of relationship counseling?

My husband and I have been married for 5 years, together for 15. We both have our own issues (depression, ADD) and lately things have been very bad between us. Weekly fights with yelling and crying, instead of disagreements or discussion. He wants us to find a "coach" that will help us define and reach our goals, I don't know if just coaching will help us.

Who do you recommend I hire to help me achieve my goals?

I have been seeing a Psychoanalytic Therapist for the last year. I have made great strides working with her and I deeply appreciate her support. Nevertheless, I feel like our main goal has been to understand my past and present.

What coach said this?

I am looking for the name of the coach and team of a video I saw at a seminar about 10 years ago.? In the video the coach said something along the lines of "before you come to me with a problem think of three possible solutions." Not sure, but I think it was a football coach. Anyone know this coach or know the video? Ideally I could find a link to the video.

Recommend Career Coach in Seattle

I need recommendations for a career coach or career counselor in the Seattle area. I'm in my mid-40s, just got laid off for the 5th time throughout my 13 years in the web/tech industry, and have been thinking for a few months that I need a change, but I don't know what my next move is. I think I want more meaning in my work life instead of just going through the motions building the next widget for synergistic end to end solutions or some other corporate B.S. I don't just want a career counselor who will give me a bunch of tests and say "you should be a journalist or a librarian or whatever", I really want someone who will help me figure out how to be more fulfilled in my work life.

Voice-over actor in NoVa

Can anyone recommend a voice-over actor or vocal coach in the DC/Northern VA area? I'm interested in locating someone for a brief interview/lesson that would be part of a podcast. Someone who would do it for the possibility of some free publicity and the certainty of a free lunch would be optimal, but not essential.
