17 Years Experience

Stephanie Licata

Coach Message

I coach individuals seeking to change or launch careers that are a match for their skill set, personality, and long term goals. This includes support in researching and selecting work environments and organizations that are best suited for their work style. I also support part or full-time entrepreneurs in designing systems and structures to support emerging businesses. Using my combined coaching and organizational development expertise, I use a combination of assessments, inquiry, conversation, and a strategic career design approach to lead people towards rewarding lucrative work experiences. I also help people invest time wisely between research, resume building applying for jobs, networking, and leveraging LinkedIn.

How pricing works
CoachMarket pre-negotiates the best prices for our career coaches, and will match you with a coach that fits your budget. Coaches will recommend a package to you based on your needs that includes a suggested number of sessions and deliverables.
Typical price ranges
Our coaches typically charge between $150-$350 an hour. The exact rate depends on the type of coaching expertise, years of experience and industry background. Coaching requires a series of sessions to be effective and coaches may offer special rates when creating a package of multiple sessions.
Billing and payments
Coaches will create a pricing package for you during the FREE consultation and you pay CoachMarket online using any major credit card prior to starting work with your coach. You will receive an email with a link to the payment page once you have agreed to a plan with your coach.
Career Transition Coaching
This is my specialty where I blend both coaching and consulting into a streamlined process to help you make informed choices about transitioning jobs, industries, and/or starting your own business. I've had the unique experience of being a contract recruiter at the same time I was looking for a job myself. I also am an organizational consultant with coveted information about how companies hire and manage talent.
By doing an in-depth skill set analysis, along with a personality assessments designed specifically for professional development, you are able to make conscious choices about changing jobs, finding a new company to work for, or even taking your existing skill sets into a new industry you didn't even know you were qualified for. Next we craft your career assets (resume, LinkedIn, etc) to accurately represent your expertise and experience. From there, we design and execute a career change plan that includes a combination of applying, networking, interview preparation, consulting on cover letters, and anything related to making the change. 
Resume Consulting
If you are just looking to put the finishing touches on your career assets (Resume and LinkedIn Profile) I do a one time consulting session and overhaul of your resume and LinkedIn Profile. 
Leadership & Organizational Coaching
As a coach, trainer, and consultant, with an M.A. in Social and Organizational Psychology from Columbia University, I've spent the past 17 years working in and and consulting with small and mid-size business leaders and teams. I focus on optimizing performance through leadership development, process improvement, team cohesion, and designing systems for hiring and managing talent for organizational success.
I work with business leaders looking to optimize both personal and organizational performance by working directly with the individual and analyzing the systems in which they are trying to accomplish tangible business results. I am ICF and NYU certified as a coach and use a variety of approaches that match both mission of the organization and the learning style of the individual.

Great experience

Dara, Project Manager

Working with Stephanie was a really good experience for me. She was able to use her expertise to guide me through a confusing time, to help me see my options and next steps for my career. Working with her helped me gain clarity and figure out my plan. I would highly recommend reaching out to Stephanie if you are in the midst of a career transition and are unable to navigate it all on your own.



Stephanie's empathy, intelligence, and resourcefulness made our time together so worthwhile. Without her help, I wouldn't have developed the much-needed clarity I now have about my work life. I recommend her without reservation to anyone seeking a very high level of quality career coaching.

An absolute joy


Working with Stephanie was an absolute joy. Her rich experience in the worlds of both business and education make her an exceptionally skilled career transition coach, and her input and feedback have been invaluable in helping me move forward on my new path. During our focused, inquiry-driven sessions, she listened deeply and asked pointed questions which helped me find the focus I needed. We crafted a beautiful new resume together (which was no easy task since I hadn't written one in 26 years).
