After a whirlwind year, you might be hoping to start your year off by equipping yourself with new tools for guidance and healing. Working with a life coach just might be the step that points you in the right direction, whether it be to find your dream job, heal from a traumatic experience, or to simply ground yourself.
The great thing about all of these life coaches is that they all offer virtual services, so while one might be based in California, you can seek their help all the way from Florida!

Explore raving reviews below and we hope you find the right fit!

Top 15 Life Coaches in America
(Each of these life coaches currently offer virtual services)
Journeys to Heal (Burbank, CA)
“I have to say that I have been very pleased with Kristine. She has a natural gift to help people heal. She has changed my life and guided me with positive energy to heal and move forward with challenging situations I have faced. She is an incredible person with so much love. The moment I talked to her, I felt it.” – Ameenah I
Song of Sparrows (New York, NY)
“Anna was EVERYTHING the other reviewers said and more. She’s such a great listener, listening with both her eyes and her heart. I left my time with Anna feeling stronger and focused. She equipped me with the tools necessary for my patience and moving forward with direction.” – Yelp Elite Jeanene B
Awakening To Radiance (Asheville, NC)
“This woman changed my life. If you are ready to do some REAL work on yourself and lead a healthy life then she’s the person to go to. With truth as the guiding force, Kara provided me tools to help deal with extreme anxiety. With a rough upbringing I have sought counseling throughout my life which is probably upwards of over 20 practitioners and I have to say her approach has been the most successful out of them all.” – Amber M
Empowerment Life Coaching (Santa Monica, CA)
“Where do I even begin! There are not enough words to fully encapsulate how thoughtful and kind London is. If you are looking for a therapy / life coach then look no further. You will be working with someone who not only possesses an incredible ability to read and understand people, but does it with a sense of warmth and empathy that is really lacking in the world.” – Nema V
Reese SanAgustin (Renton, WA)
“I’ve seen Reese for several years now, and every time I’m left amazed. She’s truly gifted (as a life coach, psychic hybrid). I always walk away feeling clear-headed and a renewed sense of self and purpose. She’s a wonderful person to work with. If you have any hesitation, just book a session! You won’t regret it.” – Brianna H
Intuitive Keoki (Kailua, HI)
“Keoki is a gifted human with an amazing heart! He is very welcoming, positive, inspiring, energetic, genuine and insightful to say the least. His intuitive gift allows him to offer you guidance in making the right choices to help you in your personal situations or to attain your goals. Keoki also does a great job of being realistic, honest and straightforward with his guidance and suggestions to help with your needs.” – Cori J
Lisa Pellegrino (Las Vegas, NV)
“I had an intuitive life coaching session with Lisa and I can’t say enough good things about her. She is truly gifted and helped guide me in more ways than one! I highly recommend her and I’m really looking forward to future sessions and exploring everything she has to offer.” – Tiffany B
A Path That Fits – Career and Life Coaching (San Francisco, CA)
“I started working with Iris after two major career setbacks. Iris helped me regain my confidence and my ability to effectively communicate my worth to prospective employers. I am now very happily employed! Iris is warm, funny, and supportive, and she will tell you what you need to hear! Highly recommended!” – Cicadaloca O
Freedom Hypnosis (New York, NY)
“Craig has vastly improved the quality of my life. He genuinely wants to help you and knows various ways to do so. A real, kind professional through and through. I would give him 10 stars if that were an option.” – Mike B
The Trusted Coach (Seattle, WA)
“I can’t say enough great things about Shawn as a career coach, mentor, and friend. I was lucky to spend two years working with Shawn as a part of my graduate school program and can confidently say that his expertise and coaching helped me land my dream job.” – Alexis G
The Energy Synergist (Austin, TX)
“I have been a logic-centered man for my entire life up until I met Heather. Her services have given me a completely new, fresh, and exuberant outlook on life. I now feel connected to my spirit in ways that I never even knew possible before her.” – Eddie R
Aloha Dreamboard (Honolulu, HI)
“Meeting Tiare has been such a blessing! Just when I was seeking more clarity, BOOM, the Universe put us together. I have been fortunate enough to work with Tiare on my personal dreamboard, business board as well as receiving personal life coaching. Our life coaching sessions really helped me to widen my perspective and taught me to ask myself better questions. Now I get better answers and manifest better results.” – Momi C
My Healing Oasis (Portland, OR)
“She helped me through an extremely difficult experience with compassion and grace and was able to hold space for my experience in a way that many others would have failed. I was truly amazed by her intuition and discernment, which she expressed in a way that I could really feel and understand. Because of her, something that started as an extremely traumatic and painful experience, feels more like an opportunity for growth and surrender. I am very grateful for her knowledge and wisdom and look forward to delving in deeper with her.” – Sophia M
Jody Michael Associates (Chicago, IL)
“After 8 years in the accounting and finance industry, I began my sessions with Anna Bray in search of a new career. It was the 2nd best decision of my life (#1 is my wife who pushed me to do career counseling). Anna was amazing and the entire process gave me such confidence in my decision to change careers. Changing careers feels like a huge risk but it’s really an educated decision after trusting in Anna and Jody Michael’s process.” – Tommer B
Soul Coach Charlene (Talent, OR)
“What I liked most about the session was that she didn’t try to tell me my fortune or future, but rather, tell me what type of person she sees me to be, what kind of energy she feels off me, and what kinds of actions and mindsets I should adopt so that I can manifest my dreams.” – Ariana F
