About Jay Balter

Career, Business and Life Plans

Real Life Experience

Jay Balter, founder of Jay Balter Coaching, exemplifies the firms' commitment to coaching services based on extensive, successful and real life experience.

Mr. Balter began to coach others as an 18 year old army medic during the Vietnam era. Returning to civilian life he quickly worked his way up from medical claim adjuster to National Director responsible for Medical Management and Rehabilitation for the Home Insurance Company of New York. His specialty was the medical and vocational rehabilitation of spinal cord injuries, amputees and brain damage victims.

At age 37 he completed his college education under the GI Bill, attending school at night, while working full time and raising a family. He received a degree in Psychology from Adelphi University in Garden City, New York.

In 1978 Jay Balter co-founded Voc-Aid Inc, a private career and vocational counseling firm in California, serving disabled, unemployed and displaced workers. As President and CEO he was a counselor and “counselor’s counselor.” In his capacity as CEO he also became an active leader and spokesperson for the Vocational rehabilitation profession. He was a frequent lecturer at Cal. State University and in his volunteer position as Legislative Representative for the National and California Association of Rehabilitation Counselors, he testified before congress at the request of President Clinton and Secretary of Labor Reich on the landmark Reemployment Act of 1994. (Welfare Reform). It was his job to recommend that the act included day care and vocational training for the singe parent welfare recipient.

Mr. Balter also worked on Federal legislation under the Nixon administration’s Occupational and Safety Health Act (OSHA) of 1972; and with the George Bush administration on the passing of the American for Disability Act (ADA) of 1989.

Family and Education

Jay considers his family experience as important as his academic and business experiences. He also views his role as grandfather of six as an ongoing learning chapter in his personal life story.

Jay Balter married his wife Sheila in 1963 and they recently celebrated over 50 years of marriage. Together they raised two children, now successful adults working in the fields of psychology and business. Both he and his wife came from single parent working class families, both providing elder care to their mother’s until their passing. Jay is also legal guardian to a mentally ill twin sister and developmentally disabled nephew.

Shortly after retiring in 2000, Jay Balter undertook graduate studies at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, where he studied Jungian Depth Psychology, and he became fascinated with the study of individual Purpose, Passion, and Mission. He continued with his adult learning experience receiving a Masters Degree in Spiritual Psychology at the University of Santa Monica, (USM) at age 65. He has been a life coach for the majority of his life, and a Coaches Coach for his Associates .

An effective partnership can make all the difference.

"There is more in human life than our theories of it allow. Sooner or later something seems to call us onto a particular path…You remember this something as a signal moment in childhood when an urge out of nowhere, a fascination, a peculiar form of events struck like an annunciation. This is what I must do; this is what I got to have. This is who I am."

James Hillman, author, The Souls Code- In Search of Character and Calling.
