We all know that weight loss and exercise are acquired by desire, sacrifice and hard work. Having a trainer that can enhance all of these aspects of an individual’s goals is seldom found. Doc is one such trainer. His technique, attitude and demeanor are all suited for positive results for any individual. Doc has trained me to a 50+ pound weight loss and I am now in the best physical shape of my life. Doc has also been instrumental in contributing to my son’s successful high school football career leading to a D1 AA scholarship. Lastly, he trains my wife and daughter. You would do well by allowing him to train you for whatever your physical goal entails. Doc gets and deserves my highest recommendation as a physical trainer who has greatly impacted my overall health and life. Mike Hinderleider

Sherry has been one of the most influential people I have met in my college career. The way she coached me in improving my public speaking skills have truly impacted my life in greater ways than I could ever imagine. Her encouragement and creative instructing methods made learning fun and exciting. Because of her, i consider myself to be more confident with my communication skills and better prepared for life after college.

James is amazing! He quickly helped me articulate the problem I was trying to solve in my career. He helped me identify my passions, strengths and articulate the value I bring to others. He coached me through resume updates, networking, interviewing and the negotiation process. His feedback was always clear and succinct. He also helped me uncover what was holding me back from making progress in my career. His advice helped me improve my overall well-being so I could live a more fulfilling life. I consider him a valuable resource and valued mentor.

Ombassa Sophera proved to be an outstanding Couselor and Coach in my personal life, and the lives of my family. Recently, when she was visiting Australia, my family and I had an opportunity for family counselling, and parent coaching. Ombassa explored the areas we sometimes take for granted to have a healthy relationship in the family, e.g. communication, love, showing gratitude to one another, being none judgemental and acceptance and appreciating one another as individuals. What impressed me most is her listening skills and her understanding of the family unit and her approach to the dynamics. She went above and beyond by giving each one of us some exercises, on the importance of taking responsibility on how we live our daily lives and the way we share that beautiful life with the family. Each individual felt that he/she was heard and understood, and since then, there has been a lot of happiness in the family, because of our new way of approach to life as a whole. We were all impressed by Ombassa's time management and punctuality, and the beautiful way of following up, our progress. Ombassa Sophera's work is extraordinary, and we as a family and individuals are living that experience with love, joy, peace and laughter. We can't ask for anything better. We feel blessed to have known her.

I will speak to the professionalism Da’Mon exhibits on a daily basis with his clients. He is not only passionate about our progress in the gym but also professionally as he has gotten certified in life coaching and mentors a group of us weekly on advancing our careers and lives. I watched him work with 60-100 people every morning at 5am for months and was amazed at the patience and attention to detail he displayed with everyone present. I have meet the majority of his current clients as we all get together for his birthday and one holiday each year. I am a life long client started with him in bootcamp a few years back where I lost 23lbs in 60 days and have been along for the ride ever since. I can’t say enough about the positive impact he has had on my fitness and professional journeys. I have more self confidence thanks to the body we have constructed over the years and professionally I have gone from intern to analyst to manger and on track for a director role.

    In the counseling sessions with Tonya Jordan I was able to identify my strengths and weaknesses and she offered me useful skills to reinforce my strengths. Attending my therapy sessions with Tonya Jordan was the absolute best decision I've made in my life! She helped me see things in terms of success and accomplishment and she was always very encouraging. Tonya Jordan has done more in a short time to help me than other professionals have in years. Just being able to talk about my feelings helped me so much and having homework to accomplish between sessions was also helpful in keeping me focused. Tonya Jordan showed tremendous concern and passion, was very professional, extremely knowledgeable, and has literally saved my life. Thanks! My sessions with Tonya Jordan have allowed me to take control of my life again. I recommend Tonya Jordan to anyone, any day, for counseling. Antoinette Steele

      We couldn't have asked for or hoped for better results! My husband and I were elated to have found Terrence and Tavari. Working with them has been an absolute pleasure :-) Their communication skills were exemplary and the way they trained us to work with one another was nothing shy of amazing! We are both so grateful for their assisting us in finding new pathways to understand one another as well as ourselves. We look forward to continuing our counseling/life coaching lessons with them for years to come. They were a comfort & guiding hand where we genuinely needed it. They forever have our utmost respect.

      I sought help from Emma to address some unresolved personal issues that I had experienced throughout my life. As time progressed, the focus shifted from an individual counseling session to a marriage counseling session. My husband and I both found Emma to be authentically caring, insightful, and spiritually grounded. Emma taught us new techniques, which encouraged us to open our hearts and the lines of communication between us. We are eternally grateful to God for how he used Emma to help and heal our marriage.

          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.

          What is a career coach?

          If you’re interested in furthering your career and want expert help, a career coach is a smart solution. A career coach is a professional you hire to guide you during a job search or a career transition, or to help you improve and advance in your current position. A career coach analyzes your work situation and learns what your professional goals are. They then create a strategy to help you achieve your targets. Throughout the process they should provide objective feedback and guide you in approaching the process strategically. Here are some of the tools and tasks a career coach may assist you with:

          • Helping you build a strong resume that reflects your work history, potential, and skills
          • Coaching for interviews and strategies for solid answers built around your resume and the target job
          • Defining your career goals
          • Creating a plan for job searching
          • Improving networking strategies and skills
          • Developing strategies for negotiating raises or promotions
          • Assessing why you’re not getting where you want to go
          • Identifying new positions or career opportunities that fit your skills

          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 is career counseling important?

          Career counseling can help you discover your career path, help you overcome challenges preventing you from finding happiness in your job, or help you learn more about career opportunities that are available to you. Career counselors are typically counselors who specialize in helping guide people into their best career choices. As professionals, they have typically completed a master’s degree in counseling with a focus on career counseling and bring a nuanced understanding of the emotional blocks that prevent someone from doing what they love or getting ahead in their current position. Here are some of the ways that career counseling can help:

          • Identify your skills and talents and how they correlate to different career paths
          • Educate you about the educational requirements for launching in various careers and what earnings can look like
          • Help you understand the kind of environment you want to work in, and which careers are best suited for that
          • See opportunities to transfer your existing skill set to other career areas
          • Help you identify causes of tension or unhappiness in your current career and how to overcome those difficulties
          • Help you create a game plan for moving forward
          • Provide a safe space for you to understand your feelings about career choices you’re making

          How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

          A career coach provides one-on-one sessions to help you reach your career goals or overcome any challenges you’re having in your career path. The cost to have career coaching can vary based on factors such as the number of sessions you purchase at one time and the experience and rates of your counselor. Career counselors are typically professionals who have earned at least a master’s degree in their field. Based on their academic background, supplemental certifications they have received, and any postdoctoral work they have done, their rates may vary. Typically career counselors offer reduced rates when you sign on for their services on an ongoing basis. A typical price range for career counseling services (nationally) could be $75-$150 per session. Remember to always ask if the career counselor offers a complimentary introductory session. You want to make sure the relationship will be the right personality and counseling style fit to help launch your confidence and upcoming career changes.
