MY CLIENTS SAY:
"I decided to coach with Angela because I wanted to spend some time investing in myself and explore what was going on with me and how they might by hindering me from growing personally and professionally. I thought Angela and I had a great connection, and she seemed like someone who is easy to talk to and would also have context and perspective, especially as a woman of color and being in the least diverse profession in the US, along with her lived experienced as a lawyer. The biggest transformation for me was awareness of my thoughts and how that plays out into how I treat myself and how I handle situations, and I am now able to handle the moments where I have negative thoughts. I am able to be nicer to myself and let go of things. I am not a let it flow type of person, but I am now able to let things go and make space for myself and allow myself to be “good enough” instead of looking for my imperfections. I wholeheartedly recommend working with Angela because a big part of coaching is not only relatability but also understanding what I am talking about and the environment and culture within which I work because all professions are different. So for me personally, it was important that Angela understood some of the sensitive topics that we discussed. That was important to me."

"I decided to work with Angela because she comes across as such an authentic person in all the electronic ways I interacted with her. I very much value authenticity. She seemed very relatable and real and that made me want to be her friend and work with her. Before working with Angela, I felt very lost in my career and was not sure what direction to take not just in terms of the subject matter of my work but also who I am as a person and what I want and want to thrive in. I felt that other coaches were more suited to marketing and refining whatever service I was offering, and I wanted to step back into who I really am. Now, I have a better sense of what I really want at an emotional level because I was given the space to be whoever I wanted to be and be my exact perfect self. I could burst into tears if I wanted to. And by going through that process and tuning into my body and respecting my emotions and embrace that, I feel like I am reminded that who I am is what it is and I get to honor and respect who I am at this very moment. I was able to figure out what I bring to the world even if it is not what other people are looking for, and those are my strengths. I recommend working with Angela because she is a very genuine and self aware person that allows people to be completely be themselves, and that is the most important thing in moving forward with anything you are doing. She called me on my bullshit, she respected the big feelings, and she left me feeling empowered to move forward in my own life as myself. I just like that every session came with some fresh perspective on an old problem that I was able to take away and think about on my own terms. We were able to engage in insightful ways to talk about life."
I wanted to work with Angela because she is not full of shit. She was like. “this is who I am, take it or leave it. I am a messy, full human.” I am also a messy, full human. And a lot of people I see out there are “you should work with me because I have it all together and figured out and I know how to fix all the things” and I was like fuck that bullshit. Fucking own your shit. I am not working with someone who is trying to turn me into a perfect person. I already put myself under pressure already to be perfect. Angela honors the truth of humanity. After working with Angela, I feel like I have more permission to simply acknowledge and accept the messy parts of myself without feeling the need to change that. I can accept more of myself and more of my value without pressure to change everything. There is value in the mess. People who want to embrace their unconventionalness and people who are not full of shit and people who don’t want to be full of shit anymore should work with Angela. Because I think that the most beautiful thing that she has to offer is honesty about the human condition and embracing that. And if you think that you should be absolutely perfect and farting rainbows all the time, then find somebody who will put a crystal up your butthole. Go to the local crystal store so you can shit rainbow out of your ass. I love her realness."
"I decided to work with Angela after she posted about coaching through anger, something not really talked about on Linkedin or in relation to work. Her coaching seemed like it would be very valuable because Angela is so authentic compared to other people whose posts appeared on my feed. (And because she is Asian and not a bro slinging platitudes in his overpriced t-shirt.) As a result of working with Angela, I have become significantly more empowered, both as a professional and as a person. Angela created a place to discuss feelings that I don’t think are always welcome in a "professional" setting. If you want support (coaching) as you build your own space in the professional system, I would strongly recommend that you work with Angela. She is a great listener, who has really thoughtful feedback - and with whom you can be your authentic self."
Sr. Commercial Counsel
"I decided to work with Angela because I loved the idea of accessing anger and working with someone who specifically looked at that emotion, which I have disregarded for many years and made myself wrong for having them. The journey was much deeper. Even though the anger was the draw, all the other emotions, every emotion possible on the spectrum, I experienced in the container in a way that was safe and powerful. The whole thing has been so transformative for me. The decisions I have been mulling over for over four years was so much easier even after just one session. It just felt so clear because of the intense depth we went in each session. All decisions. Anyone that has done any coaching program before and thinks that they’re fixed but they still want to do something more radical with their life and want to go deep and change the entire planet, they should work with Angela. If you have gone through traditional coach training or therapy, you get so much more with Angela. You don’t even know you need that but you do need that. Anyone that is okay or even thriving in their life but cannot access their anger for some reason or just don’t feel good if they are sad or there are some off limit emotions, you need to come to Angela because she will make that into your life purpose and turn it into your superpower. Don’t think about it, just feel into it. If you have felt any connection to anything Angela has shared, laughed or cried or even triggered, that means she is the perfect coach and this is the perfect container for you to be in."

"I came to Angela when I was facing family and life challenges and wasn’t really sure and was feeling like I was on autopilot. I was stressed and not super happy with it, and I wanted to figure out if the current path was my right path. I got clarity and peace of mind working with Angela. I became way more comfortable with my decisions after working them through with Angela. I still have some things that are uncertain in my life because we can’t predict anything but I feel way way more comfortable about my decisions and how to view that and how that relates with the rest of my life. This was important because I tend to ruminate but I got a sense of clarity and peace of mind. I decided to work with Angela again a year after the first time I worked with her because the first time I was facing a real crisis and was desperate for immediate help, and I got through that phase and thrived. I was facing a new set of challenges and uncertainty and needed help figuring things out, and I came back to Angela because she understands the field and is very open and honest about it. I also saw her ability to cut through the crap and help me reflect on what I am thinking and what I actually want to do and who I actually am. Work with Angela especially if you are a lawyer who is unsure or uncertain about decisions or facing obstacles in their career path or facing a crisis or going through imposter syndrome or how to balance it with everything else. Especially in the darkest times, I really appreciated that I had support with someone who would really hear me out and it helped me get through the weeks. Maybe on a Monday or Tuesday, I would deal with horrible shit, and if I was going to meet Angela on Thursday, I knew I had an anchor and I always felt better. I always made progress and helped myself after each meeting."
"I decided to work with Angela because I had the feeling that she could understand the way my brain worked. It felt like she was on the same wavelength as I was in. I just knew I needed and wanted some sort of support in several areas of my personal life, which was affecting my business at the time and I really wanted someone to help me look into my brain and my thoughts and help unpack and unravel what was going on. I really wanted someone who could really understand me. Working with Angela helped me really regain a sense of clarity over who I am and what I want to do in my life, business, and career. It felt like a revival, like the sparkle reigniting and bursting again. It took off the baggage that was dimming my shine and the shine came back. Before working with Angela, I felt heavy while all these life transitions were happening in my life, career, and entrepreneurship. I felt a sense of hopelessness and powerlessness, and I felt out of control. After working with Angela, I feel like a sparkle emoji. It feels like the heaviness of those layers have been shed, so I am able to tap into the inner resources to have my creativity shine. Angela’s thought-provoking metaphors have really helped me execute on my resourcefulness. I highly recommend working with Angela because this container gave me so many new things to think about. A lot of questions, it took me time to process, but it is very thought-provoking, while also being light and entertaining. I felt jovial on these calls because it was a space where I could just be because during the week it felt like I had to be “on.” This space let me be me and be a client and just receive and feel luxurious. It is not something we get usually on a weekly basis."
Side Hustle Coach, The Side Hustle Club Podcast
"I hired Angela to help me get out of my own way. At the time, I was in such a stress cycle, caught in the cycle, couldn’t get out of it so I hired her to help me open the door a little bit to get out of that and see more clearly. Angela helped me see that I had the answers all along. I see the circumstances I was trapped in, other people’s expectations, and now I am able to come out of that tangled mess that I was in and am able to live for myself. I now know that it is okay to do that and that I don’t have to stay in a stressful place like a cage just because other people expect me to be in that cage. I can open the cage and walk out of it and live my life the way I choose. And that choice could change every day, and that’s okay. The biggest change that I have seen in my life after working with Angela is that the tension I felt in my physical body has released. I had this block for years that was crippling, and working with Angela has helped me untangle this web and knot, and my body is just relaxed, and I can breathe. I absolutely recommend coaching with Angela because she meets you with compassion and challenges you to question the long held beliefs and patterns to see that I had the answers all along."
Senior Vice President and Associate General Counsel
"I decided to hire Angela because her social media profile brought her to life and I felt like I knew her before I ever even talked to her. I wanted life coaching because I am doing well and just wanted to feel good about my success. I am already successful, and I just needed to feel good about that success. This is so important because being able to hold a mirror and see my own true self allowed me to have a peace of mind and celebrate myself. Angela helped me hold that mirror for myself. She didn’t hold the mirror for me. I didn’t only feel good about myself but truly experience myself and be more of myself. Because of coaching, I am a more content person, I can see joy, and I can share joy more freely, and I can acknowledge my position in the world as being tiny and irrelevant and at the same time life-changing for the people I care about. I recommend coaching with Angela because it is completely transformational. To spend time with someone who cares deeply about whatever it is that you want to accomplish and do and who helps you to find YOUR path, not a prescribed path is so transformational. Somehow Angela has this gift of challenging me without prescribing a path or a methodology. She offers true support. I just can’t say enough great words about her."

"I found out about Angela through my wife who follows her on LinkedIn, and at first I was a little skeptical that there would be someone that could make me think differently about the circumstances I was in. I didn’t think anyone who was not actively helping me look for a job would actually be able to help me at all. I decided to start working with Angela because nothing else I was doing was working and knew I needed to change my way of thinking in order to change my reality. I knew that I wanted to give it a try if I wanted to be successful. Coaching with Angela helped me realize even more that it didn’t matter what job I got, it was more important to be in the right headspace so I could get the right job.
"I came to Angela feeling overwhelmed with finding a job in the job market and was feeling like I didn’t have a lot to offer and that I needed to just take the first job because why would anyone hire me. Now, I know more of what I have to offer now and that I can have more of a say in what type of jobs I have or where I work and don’t have to just accept what comes to me. I know I can find the perfect job for me anytime. I may have already found it where I am now, but I also know that it is available to me in any setting at any time. I have that power. I recommend other people work with Angela, especially people who aren’t feeling confident about their skills or finding a job because she creates a comfortable environment where I feel open to share even the most personal things, which are important for this process. She doesn’t just try to give people answers, she gives me tools to figure out answers for myself. I find myself looking forward to my calls with Angela each week."
