I hired Linda as my career coach because I wanted some new ideas on how to apply for jobs and what changes I could make so my resume stands out more. My resume was already in great shape so it didn't require rewriting, but she reformatted it so my major accomplishments are front and center. The DISC assessment I did with her was insightful and I incorporated that into my resume and my job interviews.

Dr. Sharon Lee graciously fell into my space when I was 22. She coached and mentored me until about 25. Three years have passed since then and I can say that the service she has given me is invaluable. No, it was not a become an instant success, or a become instantly better person type of thing. Dr. Lee administers tools; she identifies what the tool is, how to use it and most importantly, which tool to apply to what problem area. Then, once you understand those basics, she sets you free to master those tools for yourself. What I enjoyed most about Dr. Lee’s services is that she didn’t hold your hand the entire way through. Things you thought you had together she’d quickly point out that you didn’t, and even if you felt angry about what she was saying to you at the moment, there was always a teachable moment where you could come to your senses and process your situation and errors rationally. Make no mistake, Dr. Lee is certainly kind and compassionate, friendly...all things you would hope to expect from a Counseling Professional. But she is not afraid to push the buttons needed to elevate you where you need to be. My experience with Dr. Lee has been wonderful. What is taught by her can be carried and utilized long after your season with her is over. It has grown me, and it will grow you. Book services with Dr. Lee. It is certainly a worthwhile investment.

    Aria has an unusual approach to the area of life, love and relationships. She has her own unique style of helping you step into visualized scenarios and really see for yourself, what your potential outcomes could be. I have been doing the exact opposite all my life, and just starting to make little changes is making all the difference.

    I have had the pleasure of working with Ms. Jessi LaCosta for the last 9 years. She has provided career coaching for me as I have developed in my career as an executive in the solid waste industry. I have also participated in formal training courses taught by Ms. LaCosta. Ms. LaCosta is a very warm, outgoing and talented lady always giving of herself to help others be the best they can be. Her skills as a coach have been invaluable to me. I am always energized and motivated after interacting with Ms. LaCosta! As a coach, Ms. LaCosta easily grasps the situations I am grappling with. She asks probing questions causing me to explore the obstacles I see to success, and helps me to identify options to resolve issues and build skills. Her deep comprehension of the various schools of theory allow Ms. LaCosta to pull from a wide variety of tools to assist her clients reach understanding and resolution. I have been able to be more of a coach and servant leader with my own employees by applying skills I have learned from my interactions with Ms. LaCosta I am pleased to recommend Ms. LaCosta to other professionals who are striving to be better leaders and build quality relationships. She is an upbeat speaker and has a depth of knowledge that is just fascinating to listen to!

    I worked with Douglas to help me get rid of PTSD and other issues that had plagued me for years and caused much grief. I saw Douglas about 1/2 dozen times or more and he used EMDR. The results are totally unreal. Not only did this COMPLETLY cure my PTSD, it cleared up problems with things from my childhood that had changed my personality for the rest of my life. Once the EMDR was done on each one (1.5 hours for each) the problem was gone. Now I am a totally different person than before. And Douglas has been great about answering my questions and giving me advice on email since those treatments 3 years ago. To wrap up, my experience with Douglas was life changing.

    Megan was such an amazing resource in helping me to land my first job. She specifically helped me with my interview skills by coaching me on how to sell myself to the interviewer. She also coached me in the mechanical skills of an interview such as breathing, talking slowly and making good eye contact. The whole process of working with Megan helped me to feel confident walking into the interview because I knew I was well prepared.

    I hired Aaron to help me navigate my busy personal and professional life. I am health coach with a full-time working wife and 3 preschool kids; my life was utter chaos. I expected Aaron to point out my problems and tell me all that I am doing wrong. But it was quite the opposite; he asked the right questions, providing an experience to look inwards into deeply rooted emotions that were preventing me from a high performance, low-stress lifestyle. He helped me identify key triggers that lead up to what catapulted me to "overwhelming stress." Now I catch myself before the stress and get back into peace and freedom that provides my foundation to perform my best.

    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.
