Martha Beck, PhD

Best-known life coach in America

Martha Beck grew up wanting to be an ecologist or a professor. However, after bearing three children while acquiring three Harvard degrees, Martha decided she’d rather just lie down for a few decades.

During that time she became an author and life coach. Her books include, Expecting Adam, Leaving the Saints, Finding Your Own North Star, The Joy Diet, Steering by Starlight, Finding Your Way in a Wild New World, and her brand-new book, Diana, Herself: An Allegory of Awakening.

Martha has been a columnist for O, The Oprah Magazine since its inception in 2001 and has been a contributing editor for several popular magazines, including Real Simple and Redbook.

Martha continues to speak around the world as well as offer virtual classes and in-person workshops a few times a year, primarily at her ranch on the Central Coast of California, where she lives with her partner, Karen, and her son, Adam.
