I have been so fortunate to work with Chris for the last year; she is a highly talented coach who really cares about her clients. Before I began working with Chris I was plagued with self-doubt and resignation in my personal and professional life and could not see a way to break out of the slump and move forward. I'm so glad I found her when I did. Chris has an amazing intuition and perceptiveness; even when I wasn't able to articulate things she could understand what I really desired and who I really am. Through her supportive listening, thought exercises, and goal-setting, she helped me to develop a self-awareness that I can use to shift to a more empowering and compassionate attitude. I also benefited from her perspective and insights that come from her decades of experience as a leader. She has been a great cheerleader to me and helped me cultivate the tools to get unstuck and finally land the job I was looking for. I am grateful to her that I now have these tools for the rest of my life! I would highly recommend her for anyone who is ready to take on creating meaningful change. Kim

    I am so grateful to have been guided to Curtis, he has been instrumental in guiding and supporting me through a challenging time in my life. He is clearly an intuitive healer with an amazing gift to support with a gentle " reframing " I sometimes need to get unstuck. I would and will continue to refer family and friends to Curtis.

    It was really awesome to find a life coach who understands you without saying much. Angelica was very patient, she made me feel very comfortable to express my thoughts and she was not working with me on the clock because she feels sometimes it's best to just focus on me once i begin to speak. I only paid for an hour and she was guiding me for more than two hours. It's really amazing to find a life coach who love what they do with years of experience. She solved a big puzzle in my life that's been haunting me for years now. After she was completed with me, things in my life made so much more sense, my mind was clear with positivity and she solved the problem that day. Normally no one gets me but with her intuitive powers and best life test I feel free for the first time of my life. I recommend her always because she change my life in a way that will forever leave peace in my heart. Thank you Angelica :-)

    We, like many other couples these days, wanted a personalized ceremony that was our own blend of traditional and new-age elements. Neither my wife or I are deeply religious people but still wanted some elements of spirituality and religion in our ceremony. Cal was able to provide such well thought out words, concepts, and ideals that allowed my wife, me, and our guests to reflect on the importance of marriage, life-long commitment, and a strong partnership/friendship. If you are a couple looking for an officiant for your beautiful central coast wedding I encourage you to meet with Cal. He is so flexible, experienced, and has a plethora of suitable readings, quotes, and poems that will make every ceremony unique. Lastly Cal is so comfortable in front of people and is such an amazing and eloquent public speaker! We got so many compliments on our ceremony and it was no doubt in large part due to the experience and professionalism that Cal brings.

      Alex is a brilliant coach. She really listens and picks up on those "golden nuggets" that lead to the ah-hah's and breakthroughs. And her processes and techniques are powerful. Before working with Alex, I had been frustrated and unable to move forward for months. In just one session, she helped me get very clear on how to proceed in a way that addressed all of my concerns. My expectations were more than exceeded; I am absolutely delighted with my results. I highly recommend Alex. I know she can help you. She really is that good.

        I've made more progress in a shorter amount of time working with Julie as a Life Coach than I did working with a therapist. She is profound in her wisdom and coaching approach. I'm grateful to Julie for all her help and guidance!!!

          Having julia as a coach gave me outstanding results that I could not have had achieved on my own. She gives me daily advice, input and follows up.with each meal, snack , shake even when it comes to drinking water. Which I find extremely important to get the best results and be motivated and insipered. She talks to everyone on the same level and always stays positive and energetic! Needless to say lately she hasn't only been my coach and mentor but she became a part of my life that I now enjoy more than ever! She is simply the happiest and most positive person I've met! Julia for president!

          About

          I am a board certified coach who enjoys working with individuals, parents, and adolescents seeking to improve their life. Coaching is not therapy or mentoring but a confidential creative conversation conducted over the phone that provides a safe place to explore challenges, options, and desires. My passion is working with people seeking fulfilled and satisfying lives who may be struggling with identifying the necessary steps to get there. I also enjoy working with teens setting goals or making school/career decisions and parents wanting to improve their relationships or expand their skills in parenting.

          Q & A

          Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

          What is a life coach?

          A professional, accredited life coach works with people to help them make important changes in their life, either growing in their profession or changing gears in their personal lives. They help clients turn their dreams or wishes into realistic, attainable goals. They guide people through the process of making life changes by helping them evaluate the steps they must take to reach a particular goal, then help them decide how — and whether — to take those steps in the most efficient, effective and rewarding way possible. A life coach acts as a motivator, strategist and accountability partner. Unlike a therapist, a life coach doesn’t help solve problems from your past — they’re focused on helping you move forward with new ways of acting and thinking that will help you reach your goals. Some people specialize in particular types of life coaching, including life balancing coaches, small business coaches, executive coaches and personal finance coaches. Some meet clients in person, while others hold consultations over the phone.

          Regardless of which type of life coach you’re interested in, make sure the person holds an International Coach Federation (ICF) credential. There are three tiers of credentials: Associate, Professional and Master, which require coaching experience ranging from 100 hours to 2,500 hours.

          How much does a life coach cost?

          A life coach helps clients set and reach professional and personal goals, develop positive habits, and deal with stress. Some people meet with a life coach once or twice, while others form an ongoing professional relationship, meeting regularly in person or on the phone. The average national cost to meet with a life coach ranges from $80 to $130 an hour. Some coaches offer per-session pricing, especially for one-time meetings; expect to pay an average of $100-$125. People who want to work with a coach over a period of time to explore life transitions, career growth or lifestyle changes may be able to get discounted pricing in a package. For example, three 60-minute sessions cost an average of $300, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $350, and four 60- to 90-minute sessions plus unlimited contact between sessions cost an average of $400. Some specific types of coaching, such as relationship or marriage coaching, cost more than standard life coaching. For instance, three 60-minute relationship coaching sessions cost an average of $500, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $550, and six 60- to 90-minute sessions cost an average of $650 when purchased as a package. Training and experience can also affect the cost of hiring a life coach. An Associate Certified Coach, who holds a certification that requires only 60 hours of training and 100 hours of coaching experience, will charge less than a Master Certified Coach, who typically has at least 200 hours of training and 2,500 hours of coaching experience.   

          Why get a life coach?

          People of all ages and in all careers have called in a life coach. Life coaches are accredited professionals who can help you figure out the tangible changes you can make in your life to reach your goals; they can even help you turn your dreams into goals, if you’re not sure where to go next. A life coach can also help people find their purpose in life. Life coaching clients often have an idea of what they want to do, such as help people or work with animals, but don’t know how to turn that passion into a career. A life coach can help clients work through the options to find a clear path with concrete steps that lead to an attainable goal. A life coach can also help clients make a major career change, such as starting a new business. Life coaches can help clients develop better habits that will make them more successful, acting as an accountability partner. Life coaches also often guide their clients through major transitions in life, such as a career change or other stressful situations that are made easier with guidance from a neutral third party.
