It is evident that Betty Arntson takes great pride in her work and strives to assure that her clients are successful in their endeavors. I recently graduated with a Bachelors in Business Administration, having worked in education for all of my adult life, I needed assistance in preparing for a career change. Betty revamped my resume to focus on my business skills, as well as helped me brush up on my interviewing technique. Betty is very reassuring and has a knack for helping you realize your full potential and what you have to offer to a company. She has been very attentive to my questions and concerns. Betty stayed in contact throughout the hiring process and helped me understand some of the delays that occurred. Betty is a great resource for anyone looking to make a career change or find a new job.

My conversations with Laura gave me the courage to quit my job (one that I was not incredibly enthusiastic about) to return to the field I’m sure I was born to work in. Realizing it was time for me to take a risk was frightening at first, but she believed in me and cheered me on as needed. Her enthusiasm was contagious; and when I doubted myself, she knew just what I needed to hear in order to continue moving forward. >>>>Or here is some of the guest blog post info: So we started. And in our first session, I felt I was all over the place. Revelations and ah-ha moments popping off like fireworks. She listened and coached and asked questions and I was a mix of faith and excitement and sheer joy! And then she did what she's always done that has impressed me and she asked me a question that seemed completely out of left field but which, of course, turned out to be completely related when she asked me about my "relationship with stress". I got quiet. And was a bit stumped. When I hired her to coach me toward my passion, toward my purpose, I was thinking it was going to help guide me in clarity toward a particular role or job in education. To help me figure out a specific path toward (I hate to admit this but...) the "top". I wanted to know how I was going to get my money's worth from the several degrees I've added to the rungs of my educator belt. How I was going to make the biggest impact from a managerial and leadership role. How I was going to make bank and run stuff. It was a tough pill to swallow. And I had to admit it to myself - and to Laura - and then respond honestly. And when she asked me about my relationship with stress, I knew this was God giving me an opportunity to shift my thoughts from "my plans" to His will. And when I could admit these things to myself, I had an almost immediate shift in what I was willing to do and was able to humble myself and consider next steps that would keep stress at a minimum and allow us to still have some amazingly wonderful experiences.

I have been receiving Reiki treatments from Teresa for about a year and I can honestly say my life has improved in every way since. No more physical pain in my back or plantar fasciitis. I dealt with severe depression and anxiety for more than 20 years and the depression is completely gone. My mind is clearer than it has been since my school years and my creative blocks are mostly gone. Teresa is a phenomenal practitioner with an uncanny knack to be able to know exactly where my pain is and helping my body to heal itself. I highly recommend her.

In the summer of 2014 I began counseling with MABEL. This was a turning point in my life. MABEL helped me through a difficult divorce, and a family members addiction. Through counseling, I was able to Identify my values and passions. To address life's problems with strategies instead of emotions. To this day, I review the notes I have accrued and use the tools given to me.

I love working with Kelsey. She is so encouraging, motivating and positive. Her training and meal plans are straight forward and easy to understand. She is an excellent coach and is always asking how she can better help you - a good trainer will just give you a plan. An excellent trainer will always constantly be helping you, asking you how they can help you, encouraging you. She isn't only a trainer, but she is your friend. ❤ I still have a ways to go, but I've learned so much from Kelsey and I'm eating right, exercising, losing fat mass and building muscles which is my goals that's she's helping me achieve.

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.
