I have been working with Victoria for going on 3 years now- we meet up once a year to revamp my resume- and I don't know what I would do without her. She gives what I have done in life focus and helps market me in a way that I never could have done myself to be desirable to potential employers. She also gives me the confidence to go for what I really want out of life.

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.

KeriAynn provided care for my Husband who suffers from Alzheimer’s while I got away for a much needed break. She was amazing! Her knowledge about the disease, and ability to communicate with him were extraordinary. He absolutely adored her. Charlie was easily agitated, but KeriAynn had a very calming effect on him. She was extremely responsive to his needs and cared for him with a level of professionalism and compassion that is not easily found in a Caregiver. She could not have been more suited to care for the love of my life. Rhunette Humrich

I recently published a book, and Janet was an absolute DREAM to work with as the editor! Seriously. My greatest concern with this project was wanting to see and hear my voice come through on the pages. Janet made that happen! I could hear my voice come to life. Not only was the finished manuscript flawless, no errors, but there was also a TON of amazing feedback and respect of my vision for the book. Her feedback was honest and constructive, a passionate critique of my writing style, and there were even a few laughs for the both of us. What a joy to work with! AND, Janet even went above and beyond to create a unique and personalized video tutorial to guide me through the process of reviewing her edits in Word. Can't say enough to express how happy I am with the results of working with Janet!

    Joe put me at ease from the beginning. I found him to be very professional, personable and intuitive. He was an excellent listener and very skilled at being able to sum up my circumstantial barriers and point out things I was unaware of. Joe was very skilled at helping me to navigate my life course toward a successful new path. I am very grateful to Joe and highly recommend him to anyone who needs life coach assistance.

    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.
