I have known Kara since the early stages of starting her business as a massage therapist, Reiki Master, hypnotherapist, Life Coach, teachings/classes on shamanism practice, and actually becoming a healer myself. Kara has been more helpful than I can put in words. I started my first counseling session with all my questions and concerns, setting intentions and goals while working together. She made it safe, easy and comfortable to open up. She Taught me to journey within myself where all the answers await. Each session was deep, powerful, inspiring and life changing. I feel so blessed to have had all 3 Reiki attunements with Kara. Each time was incredibly mystical and a deeply spiritual experience. Done in a small group setting, which made it feel intimate in a very comfortable environment. I felt surrounded by love, compassion and kindness. After this experience I have since felt profoundly connected to everyone and everything surrounding me. She has changed my life, which has opened me up to help change others around me. I HIGHLY recommend contacting her, attending classes/workshops, in person sessions or even over the phone appointments. It is truly a life-changing experience.

My agreement to contract with Maryellen began with a casual conversation during a visit with some friends where she shared her diverse background as a psychologist, motivational speaker and life coach. She assisted me in identifying for myself changes I needed to consider in my personal, business and spiritual life in order to enter into a new and satisfying phase of my life. As CEO of a development company, the coaching expanded to my business partners and staff. Maryellen helped the staff identify issues relative to their specific roles with annual coaching sessions at our office focused on goal setting for the staff and company. In order help facilitate my journey, Mel engaged my wife and I individually and together to assist with the "life changing transition" which we began developing together. I had no idea what a "Life Coach" really was. Was I in for a surprise! Engaging in this journey has helped me discover a great balance between church, spouse, family, career and just enjoying life more. Thanks, Dr. Mel! Jim P

An incredible professional. A true Healer and very effective in both holistic health and wellness as well as spiritual guidance. Amy guided me in both balance of my work life as well as understanding the nature of learning to be present. It has helped both in my professional and personal life, which I am grateful for! I am still a student in many ways, but Amy has been an incredible guide and aide, and I look forward to her thorough guiding and effective results in helping me learn and grow more!

Going to a life coach wasn't something I ever thought I would do. As a successful business owner I feel confident, self motivated and love to challenge myself. I found myself feeling frustrated and confused when I began to procrastinate - for a year - on a professional project I really wanted to do. It made no sense to me. When I want to do something I typically would just do it or at the least, try. Not this time. For whatever reason I kept procrastinating and doing literally anything else during the time I set aside for the project. I have friends who have worked with coaches with great success so I reached out to Dara. I was drawn to her unique positive success coaching style and philosophy. It was the best decision I could have made. Not only did I make strides on the project, I ended up learning so much more about myself than I anticipated through her sessions, strategies and insightful recommendations. After only a handful of coach sessions I was able to begin the project and am now equipped with tools to embrace these types of struggles in the future. My advice - don't wait a year like I did! If you are feeling stuck - Call Dara. Bokhara Lashi San Francisco, CA

Kelle helped my husband and I to plan and execute a major move of both our business and our "life" from Northern California to North Carolina. What impressed me about Kelly was her capacity to really listen to our situation and help us think through both the big picture strategic planning issues involved in this move as well as the more granular requirements for thinking about it's timing and execution over a three year period. I would hire Kelle again without hesitation as well as recommend her services to others. She's great!

    Meeting and working with Rich came at just the right time. Critical issues in my business life are approached objectively and viable solutions are developed. But what I value most about our coaching sessions revolves around honing in and developing my strengths. Rich is a solid influence in my life and I am very grateful for the wisdom and direction I have received from him. I highly recommend his services with BenchStrength Development.

    I am a former competitive athlete and, now, fitness trainer and life coach who has worked with athletes from amateur to professional to Olympic level. Through my personal experiences and from my experiences working with my clients, I have developed a system that I call the diamond transformation practice. This system is currently being packaged into a curriculum that can be taught to other teachers, trainers, coaches and clients. This proven system, which combines physical and mental practice, promises to re-create who you are on a cellular level and, thus, to achieve your personal goals physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I believe this system is so powerful in its ability to change lives, I am dedicating my life to developing it. I am also writing a book in order to share it with the world.


    I work with individuals to clear energy blocks and also identify the primary thinking that has generated those blocks. I work with them to shift that thinking for long-term clearing and healing.

    Because I did it, living a healthy lifestyle isn't something I've been doing all my life like a lot of health and fitness professionals. 5 years ago I was 300 pounds and smoking almost a pack a day, I made a decision to change and after a stumble or two I've succeeded!

    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.
