David's approach to therapy is different than others. Instead of rehashing complaints, dramas, fears and becoming very articulate about what's wrong, he helps you actually move on and feel better. He does this by showing you how you are the active agent in your life and that you don't have to be your mood's servant. You have responsibility for how you feel and he gives you tools for seeing things in a new light that lifts the burden and gives you new eyes that can see the world at peace instead of in torment.

After a another one on one session with Ms Kelly , I have used some of the tools she gave me for every day life as well as my marriage. I'm so thankful for those individual sessions because now I'm more confident and eager for the future for myself and my family.

Despite being apprehensive about seeing someone and sharing some painful info, Coach Huckabee made me feel valuable & meaningful. In 1 valuable session, he made me feel like I had a voice worth hearing and began to help me rebuild the self-esteem lost. While I know its just a beginning, I am happy to finally be working with someone who isn't making me feel guilty or always interrupting and looking at a clipboard or taking notes. Thanx for a new start Coach Huckabee! See you soon!

I went to Darlene because I had issues with forgiveness. Not only did Darlene coach me through the process of forgiving which seemed easy, there were deeper issues with me that I did not realize were issues, things I had to face and things I had to get hold of. During my four sessions with her, I learned to let go of things that did not add value to my life, my happiness and that blocked me from forgiveness. I was given homework but the hard work took place when face to face with Darlene. She's gentle but tough, she knows when you're trying to avoid the question or when your trying to take the easy way out and she was not going to let that happen. If you let Darlene do the work and you work with her, you are going to benefit greatly as I have. I had no idea that I was in the way of my own happiness and now that Darlene has shown me how to get out of my way and gave me the tools to stay out of my way, I am in a better head space and the weight I have been carrying on my shoulders, in my heart and more importantly in my head has been lifted and I owe so much gratitude to Darlene and the work she put in to "fixing" me. Because of her, I think differently, react differently and now I walk differently in my life and Love It. I truly believe Darlene was sent to me by God. It was through her many workshop invitations that I finally attended one and realized that so many other women had problems deeper than mine but this one particular workshop took us to church and when the word was focused on forgiveness, I knew or should I say thought that was something Darlene could help me with. So at the end of the service and in the house of the Lord, I was impelled to approach Darlene to ask for help and it was the best guidance I had received. To wrap this up, Darlene knows her business and if you're willing to do the work, you too can get my results. Thank you Darlene for not only making me see myself but for checking in with me from time to time to see how I'm doing. It's nice to know that you'll be there if I need you.

I came to Alex with what I thought were a wide variety of issues. Rather than work directly on those, he asked the right questions to help me work on myself. He doesn't just help change careers for the better, he helps you discover the best sides of you and he provides insightful advice on how to leverage your best qualities for career growth. Be prepared to work hard for the changes ahead, and be prepared to feel empowered. Alex will help you bring out the best in you.

I have had the opportunity to utilize the services of Dharma Healing and Wellness for quite some time now. Ms. Lee was my life coach and mentor in the areas of relationship issues and self-worth issues. She helped me through several very challenging situations before, during and after my divorce. She made me believe in myself again. She showed me how to love myself first and to never settle for less. She helped me realize that I was not the one with the issue. Her approach was very professional, educational, uplifting and rewarding. She helped me face my fears, angers and doubts and conquer them with exercises such as positive visualization, meditation and fasting. She always made herself available morning, noon and night. With Dharma Healing and Wellness, you get more than what you pay for! This was extraordinary service!

Sabrina is by far the most motivating coach I have ever had. When you work with her she makes a plan custom to you. What's more is that she is always avaliable to answer any questions/concerns and is willing to work with you no matter where you are or what your schedule is like. She is amazing and I recommend her to anyone trying to acheive any fitness and of personal goals.

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.

    My name is Forrest. I am a college student with high aspirations for the future. I do not have a car or a job but I will be trying to get both starting this year. What I need from a coach is to learn how to understand people. I do not feel any connection with anyone (even those I am really close with). I do not understand how to read people, at all! As far as talking to girls I am told that I come on too strong. I am afraid of physical contact and I don't know when it is supposed to be used. Finally, I do not have a concept of what awkwardness is or what it feels like. I am told sometimes that I make people feel awkward and I don't know what I am doing wrong. Just to give you an example of this; the way I measure awkwardness is when I'm with someone and there is a silence, I have a count down to the point at which things "become awkward." This has caused issues as well (as one could probably tell).
