Our daughter has only done one session with Marissa at InSight so far but we are thrilled with how it went. We thought we were hiring an SAT tutor but Marissa is so much more. She is very experienced in the whole college application process as well and is coaching our daughter on how to apply for -- and get accepted to -- her favorite schools.

I decided to hire a life coach because I was in a transitional period. I was done with my 9:00-5:00, working freelance jobs, and needed someone to help me take big action towards my dreams. I interviewed a few potential people, but I knew Sami was the coach for me right away. From day one I have loved our conversations. Each session leaves me feeling energized, and ready to conquer all that's ahead of me. Working with Sami has allowed me to get clear on my goals and has pushed me to take action towards my dreams. I am currently building my own business that makes me excited and gives me the freedom I desire. I also have grown in my personal relationships with friends, family and my significant other. Sami has helped me make this reality possible. I am so thankful for her and the awesome encouragement and guidance she has given me. I don't know what my life would look like today if I hadn't hired Sami - and I definitely do not want to find out! Sami is the best kind of cheerleader and should be first on your list if considering hiring a coach.

    As the director of a diverse and expansive professional portfolio that includes events, marketing, communications, fundraising and operations, Sonya demonstrates daily her outstanding ability to successfully manage multiple projects, priorities and operations. Time and organizational management are at her core and she can do both like nobody’s business. She’s a strategic thinker who can switch back and forth between big picture thinking and the many small details. She enjoys coaching, inspiring and mentoring her team and others -- always striving to help them identify and focus on their strengths and desires so that they can develop the tools to optimize their professional and personal lives. I have also been the beneficiary of her wisdom and expertise on numerous occasions, and it has deeply impacted my own business as well. Bottom line: Sonya is amazing, and she fully deserves my highest recommendation.

    Adriana, for the lack of a better phrase, saved my relationship. I have been in a lull for over a year, and reached out to a life coach in what I felt like was an attempt of desperation. Boy was I surprised. I had no idea how simple everything could feel and be. Adriana is one of the most compassionate and in-tune people I know. She has the most unique way of sorting through all of the baggage, and showing you what matters. I feel so rejuvenated not just in my relationship, but in so many other areas of my life. I highly, highly recommend this lovely lady. Thank you Adriana!

    My life coaching experience with Patti has been remarkably supportive and compassionate. It has been extremely rewarding to have Patti in my corner, encouraging me to reach beyond my limits and helping me to overcome obstacles that hindered my progress. She also helped me to identify some limiting beliefs and replace them with more realistic beliefs. Together, we created a plan that allowed me to take the necessary action to accomplish my goals. I genuinely appreciate her ability to guide me through tough decisions by allowing me a very proactive role in the process. I am now living on purpose with passion and impact! Thank you Patti!

    Ravid is a complete treasure! I came to know her after reading an incredibly compelling online article she had written. It resonated with some difficulties I had been dealing with in my life. After a couple of emails we began meeting weekly face to face over the internet. Having her guidance and feedback has led me to a place of peace that I had been longing to find for some time. I truly feel fortunate to have known her and highly recommend her as a counselor regardless of what stage of life or love you are in.

      Just wanted to give a shout out to Celia! We've been working together for a few weeks now and it's exactly what I needed. After a few years of major changes, I was feeling pretty overwhelmed and couldn't seem to get back on track on my own. Celia has been great about helping to set goals with food and money, writing resume/cover letters and in general not allowing me to beat myself about totally normal feelings. I feel better than I have in months! So thank you Celia and if anyone else is feeling the pressure of life and needs a little guidance, I highly recommend reaching out to her.

      Rhetah has been my personal and business coach for several years. She challenges my thought processes and she challenges me to go beyond what I think I could do. She celebrates with me in my successes and guides me through any defeats or "learning opportunities". You can't afford not to have her in your success toolkit and your life!

      I have been working with Sarah over the last year. She holds a beautiful space for me to be open. She also offers me practices to do which allow me feel more grounded and move into greater self love. I tend to resist doing them but they are really effective. I find her to be honest in her feedback which helps me get out of my own way. I love the way we work life from the “goal line” and the “soul line”. Ultimately, I have found her to be highly effective in processing my material. I would highly suggest her!

        Angel successfully weaned me off of Ambien - after having been on it for 25 years !!! Angel then proceeded to check out my kitchen and put me on the correct diet for my body and lifestyle. Angel shopped for the correct food, cooked my meals and put me on an excersize regime. I wanted to cut out meat, which was easy to do with her. I lost weight, I got healthy with alternative eating and learned to enjoy my life again. For my arthritis Angel used essential oils and anti inflammatory food to bring down the inflammation. I feel reborn because of Angel. Angel Morgan saved my life !!!!! (As a post script, Angel is fun to be around, laughter is also medicine !)

        Life coaching is a fun and effective way to discover and unlock all of the incredible potential within you. With a life coach, you learn successful strategies to unblock the negative thoughts that might be standing in the way of fulfillment. It is a unique method that empowers you to bravely go after your dreams, so that you may live the life you imagined! Sessions occur over the phone, via Skype, or in person (I work out of Los Angeles). Clients work a minimum of 12 sessions (1 per week) for individual coaching. After the initial 12 sessions (3 months), clients can work month-to-month, if desired. Most clients commit to working for 6 months or more. Each session is 45-60 minutes. Coaching is a relationship where I ask empowering questions and guide you to your desired outcome. Through empowering questions, guided visualization, and core energy techniques, you gain greater awareness of your desires, discover blocks that might be stopping you from reaching your goals, and establish new about your life, so that you connect inner desires to outer goals. At the end of each session, you will be assigned home-play based on the topics discussed during the session. Home-play is directly related to what you want to accomplish. At the next session, you will be held accountable for completing the home-play. As the client, you are the master of your plan and the conductor of your train. As a coach, I am here to help facilitate that plan, guide you to greater fulfillment, and help you discover tools that empower you to reach your goals.

I am a healer who assists you in healing emotional, physical, mental and spiritual blockages. My gift is guiding you to fully open and integrate to your highest potential.

        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.
