I hired Jane as a Life Coach because I am going through a life transition and seeking a new path that reflects the growth I have managed over the last several. I spent many years in an emotionally abusive marriage where my feelings were dismissed, my dreams squelched and my intellect ridiculed. As a single parent in the ten years between now and then, I had little time to pursue dreams or new careers, but I was away from the bullying and able to finally begin to blossom and to value myself. Now my children are grown and I'm ready to take the next step, but I realized that I could not do it alone. The conditioning was still too strong. I wanted someone to help, to bounce things off of, to give me perspective and to keep me from falling into ambivalence and indecision in the face of that inner critic. Jane has been that person. She has a wonderful combination of kindness and straightforwardness. She spent our first session just listening, giving her full attention to where I had been and where I was at. The validation of that alone, was worth gold to me. She has the ability to listen in a way that is deep and that helps you hear yourself, and trust yourself. We are still working towards my goals, which she is helping me identify and stay true to. The more I work with her the more solid and confident I become in my dreams and the quieter that echo of the bully becomes. I highly recommend Jane for anybody who is in a transition period of their life--especially if you have been the victim of abuse--and is looking for someone who can provide support, structure and firm but gentle guidance. She never, never tells you what to believe or who you are or what you want. She helps you find your own way there.

I met with Jim for two sessions and his advice was just what I needed. Jim has an amazing gift. He was able to gather the information about my career and personal relationships and present a new approach for me to overcome obstacles. It was worth every minute and his rate is very fair. I recommend him to anyone who is faced with life's challenges and needs more than a friend's point of you or a therapist's ear. Jim helped me with an action plan that really paid off.

Marlen is an outstanding massage therapist whom I have known for several years. From playing tennis, I had extreme tightness in my hips and IT band and Marlen worked hard to release the tightness in those muscles so I could continue playing. Marlen kept me on the courts! She asks your areas of concern and concentrates on those ~ so many therapists decide what you need without listening to your concerns. I would highly recommend Marlen to anyone who wants improved health and fitness.

I came to Chavi at a time when I had severe anxiety. Her personalized treatment did wonders for me. Coming from India, she is the real deal--she knows the history, technique, breathing, mantras, and how to serve your body. As a choreographer, dancer, physical therapist, and yoga practitioner, there is no better teacher in Boston.

    About two months away from our wedding day in 2015, my wife (fiancée at that time) and I were grateful to be introduced to Alain and Danielle by a church friend as our wedding counselor. They are a wonderful couple most importantly; because, their teaching are very transparent and practical. It is obvious that Alain and Danielle are Men and woman of God. During the weekly counseling sessions, every time we walked out of the office, Nephthalie and I have learned so much; our perception of relationship specifically in marriage was revealed. Now, it has been seven months since Nephthalie and I got married. We applied those principle on a daily basis. The sessions were very significant. From the teaching received, we have the magic key needed to solve any problem for a successful marriage. We highly recommend them if you are looking for a marital or relationship counselor.

    Pastor Peter is professional, courteous, and helpful in all aspects. He not only helped prepare us for marriage through pre-marital counseling, he crafted his sermon to reflect our individual personalities and tastes. Both my wife and I feel a debt of gratitude to this wonderful man.

    Wendy has been a tremendous support for me in coming to terms with my part in having a marriage I don't want while showing me the simple ways to having a marriage I do want. She's practical and insightful, using humor and example to get powerful points across. The changes are happening and I am more hopeful and peaceful than ever before.

      Testimonial: Individual Therapy A bit less than a year ago, following a series of unfortunate events in my life, I had reached a really low point. Emotionally, mentally and physically drained, I knew that I needed to find the strength to continue living, and out of sheer desperation, I finally reached out to Rita, It was the best decision I ever made. Over the past 10 months, she has helped me experience growth that for me was unimaginable. In a loving and compassionate manner, she has helped me to identify both the destructive behavior patterns that led to my subsequent bouts of depression as well as the traumatic events and family history that contributed to the creation of these destructive patterns. Most importantly, she has taught me how to change these destructive patterns and replace them with positive, healthy, self-affirming ones. In less than a year, Rita has positively influenced almost every aspect of my life. I am learning to identify and arrest addictive behaviors, replace negative thought patterns with positive self-talk and eliminate unhealthy behaviors and toxic people from my life. I am practicing self-love and becoming my “best self.” As a result, my marriage and family relationships have improved and my career continues to blossom. I have lost over 45 pounds and I am finally learning what it means to be truly happy, healthy and whole -- mind, body and spirit. I am learning to clearly identify my goals and attain them. I totally attribute my growth to working with Rita. There is an old saying: “The sick mind doesn’t know that it’s sick.” Whether it is in your personal or professional life, Rita's incredible talent lies in her ability to assist you with identifying (and sometimes just acknowledging) the source of your pain or whatever it is that may be holding you back. More importantly, she accompanies you on the path of self-healing, and provides the tools necessary to complete the journey. That is Rita’s gift to her clients. It is a gift that is priceless. --Anonymous in Massachusetts

      I saw Patrick for a prenatal sports massage as I was experiencing some lower back and hip pain. Not only did he make me feel incredibly comfortable, but his knowledge was far superior than any therapist I have been to before. He was mindful of my positioning and communicated with me throughout. He was able to target areas I didn't think would be possible to feel until after delivery!! Amazing. Following my session, he also recommended exercises to work on my hip stability and mobility that has helped keep the pain to a minimum. I will definitely be going back for another sports massage and will schedule a coaching session as well! He is THE best in the area, by far.

      Hi Amy, I would like to extend my thanks and appreciation to you for choosing a perfect coach for my Life's situation. You were right on the money. I must honestly admit that Mr. Anil Sakhuja is absolutely a true professional,honest and caring man. After reading his profile, I knew right away that he was the perfect person I was looking for to share and address my confusion in my Life at the moment.He took a look at my entire Life background,how far I have come to this point in respect to my Life's experiences and educational level in this country, and gave me an honest opinion or coaching from a psychological point of view. I truly believe he has a joy in helping people that are confused or do not have a sense of direction in making vital decisions in their Life. From talking to Mr. Sakhuja, I truly believe he was honest with me in his opinion, about what direction I should take in my Life, and take away the stress I was putting on myself with the delima. I will forever recommend Mr. Anil Sakhuja to who ever wants to be coached by a true professional and honest man who is willing to engage int your Life's confusion or delima,and give you his honest opinion. He is a true therapist, Like Father,who is willing to help a child that is stressed with Life and confused. I will always keep in touch with Anil Sakhuja whenever I face a hurdle in Life.

        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 psychologist?

        A psychologist is a professionally trained mental health professional who helps patients navigate challenging life situations or mental health issues. To become a psychologist you must earn a doctoral degree; qualifying degrees include a Ph.D., Psy.D. or Ed.D. To actively practice, a psychologist must be licensed in their state and maintain good standing. Psychologists are trained to administer tests that can evaluate a patient’s cognitive strength and weaknesses, intellectual skills, vocational aptitude and preference, personality characteristics, and neuropsychological functioning, explains the American Psychological Association (APA).

        A psychologist meets with patients in an office and may work with a variety of methods, depending on patient need, such as cognitive, behavioral or interpersonal.  According to the APA, common reasons a person may visit a psychologist include:

        • Dealing with depression, anger or anxiety over a long period of time.
        • Help with a chronic condition that is interfering with their lives or physical health.
        • Help with grieving and other abrupt transitions.
        • Overcoming addictions.
        • Managing chronic illness.
        • Breaking old and harmful patterns of thinking or behavior.

        What are the types of psychologists?

        Psychologists are healthcare professionals who use scientific methods to understand the relationships between the brain, environment and behavior. Psychologists may focus on research — studying how the brain and various environments drive behaviors to better understand the issues that trouble patients and society as a whole — or they may focus on practice — interacting with people using therapeutic methods. The American Psychological Association shares some of the more prevalent types of psychologists:

        • Clinical psychologists assess and treat mental, emotional and behavioral disorders.
        • Cognitive and perceptual psychologists study human perception, thinking and memory.
        • Community psychologists work to strengthen the abilities of communities, settings, organizations and broader social systems to meet people’s needs — such as improving support for victims of natural disasters, or working to improve health policies.
        • Counseling psychologists help people understand and take action on everyday issues, career and work problems, and serious adversity.
        • Developmental psychologists study the psychological development of the human being throughout life.
        • Educational psychologists concentrate on how effective teaching and learning take place.
        • Engineering psychologists conduct research on how people work best with machines.
        • Environmental psychologists study the dynamics of how people interact with their environments.
        • Evolutionary psychologists study how evolutionary principles such as mutation, adaptation and selective fitness influence human thought, feeling and behavior.
        • Experimental psychologists study cognitive processes, comparative psychology (cross-species comparisons), and learning and conditioning.
        • Forensic psychologists apply psychological principles to legal issues.
        • Health psychologists specialize in how biological, psychological and social factors affect health and illness.
        • Industrial/organizational psychologists apply psychological principles and research methods to the workplace to improve productivity, health and the quality of work life.
        • Neuropsychologists and behavioral neuropsychologists explore the relationships between brain systems and behavior.
        • Quantitative and measurement psychologists focus on methods and techniques for designing experiments and analyzing psychological data.
        • Rehabilitation psychologists work with stroke and accident victims, people with mental disabilities, and those with developmental disabilities caused by such conditions as cerebral palsy, epilepsy and autism.
        • School psychologists assess and counsel students, consult with parents and school staff, and conduct behavioral interventions when appropriate.
        • Social psychologists study how a person’s mental life and behavior are shaped by interactions with other people.
        • Sport psychologists help athletes refine their focus on competition goals, become more motivated, and learn to deal with anxiety and fear of failure around competition.

        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.   

        How much do therapists cost?

        If you are experiencing a challenging time, have mental health difficulties, or just want professional guidance as you move through life, a therapist can provide relief, tools and structure. The national average cost for a therapist is $80-$100 per hour, although prices may be higher or lower depending on geographic location and the experience and training of the therapist.

        Psychiatrists, psychologists and licensed therapists are all health professionals who offer various modalities of therapy. Ask questions about the type of therapy they specialize in (such as cognitive or behavioral, etc.) and their area of expertise (such as grief, anxiety, body image disorders, etc.) to help you find the right fit for your needs. Therapy sessions are typically 50-60 minutes long.  The patient usually meets with the therapist in their office; sessions may also be held remotely (via Skype, etc.) or in a clinical setting. Psychologists, psychiatrists and other therapists who have earned advanced degrees will typically charge higher rates than other licensed therapists. Depending on your diagnosis, your health insurance may cover your therapy costs.

        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
