MY CLIENTS SAY:
"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."

"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."
Partner at Bishop & McKenzie LLP
"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."
Criminal Defense Attorney
"I decided to get coaching with Angela because her messages on LinkedIn resonated more and more with me until I got to a point where I felt sure that it would be a good experience. I was in a place where I knew I needed something that I couldn’t put my finger on exactly, but it was getting in the way of a lot of things. Through working with Angela and now, while there are still going to be difficulties and challenges, I feel more grounded in how to go through everything. I feel like I have this tree that I know it’s there that I can hang on to. I recommend coaching with Angela to other people if they are in the right place to accept the change in their lives and how they view their response to the world. It’s a commitment but it is one that feels like, once you decide to do it, right form the beginning, it feels like the right decision. Even though I had been thinking about it and had not been sure for a while, somehow it felt right the moment I made a decision about it. That doesn’t always happen with me."

"I decided to coach with Angela after hearing her on a podcast and felt a connection based on the words she was saying. She made me stop and think about where I am. It was an almost instant awareness of what I needed to stop and think about myself. Before, I never invested in myself. I didn’t think I was worth investing in. So I went to a dark burnt out place. After, I realized investing in myself wasn’t such a horrible thing. It was a healthy choice to get me out of a place where I was ruled by other people rather than ruling my own life. Now, I recognize that I need to put myself first in my world to serve other people to the best of my ability. Before, I was scared, burnt out, probably depressed. Now, I am definitely refreshed. My passion has been re-lit. I appreciate the found skill in being able to be self aware and be self-reflective. It is one of the best decisions I’ve made because it allowed me to explore and understand where I was and why I was there. I recommend coaching with Angela to other people because she challenges me to do hard things and it is helpful to actually apply what you would read in self development books."
Barrister & Solicitor, Shields Law Office
"I recommend coaching with Angela because it was life changing for me. I can only imagine what it would be like for other people, too. Before, I was in negative land and now I am in fabulous positive land. I was really running on empty, and now my tank is full. Before, I was just going through the motions, just thinking that this is it, this is the rest of my life, where I had no purpose, thinking that I was not good at anything, no hobbies, whatever the world tells us to do. I had none of that. And now, I’m with a tank full, I am seeing things that I don’t have to live inside a box. I can live outside a box, and the only thoughts that matter is what I generate. For anyone hesitating hiring a life coach, I would tell them that it is something that will turn around and change your life."
National Marketing Director and Life Coach
"I would highly recommend coaching with Angela to other people because it was life-changing for me. It feels like it just helped me to uncover all the stuff that was already there and helped me to run toward myself. Before, I was like tiptoeing or afraid to run, and now I’m just like running like Forrest Gump towards myself. I trust my feelings a lot more instead of overthinking everything, instead of focusing on all the hurdles. I’m just going to keep running. Angela really helped me be myself for my business instead of wondering what I’m supposed to be. I enjoy showing up for my business way more and have doubled my following on LinkedIn just by showing up and being comfortable as who I am. It is so hard to put into words, but it is one of the best decisions I’ve made because I feel like I had all these pieces, and all the pieces were there, but they weren’t all together and whole, and now through our work, I was able to put everything together and put all the right colors on there and add more color to create my own magic."
Lawyer and Mindful Life & Work Coach
"I recommend coaching with Angela because it is helpful to have someone available to help you identify your goals and connect with your motivation and reinforce good habits around setting the direction in your career and lifestyle. Coaching helped me think bout the direction of my personal and professional life during a period of lot of change following the pandemic and some big life changes. It was a great decision because it is helpful to have someone who has navigated similar experiences as a minority lawyer in this industry who can help you identify your motivation and encourage you to set your own direction."
Big Law Partner
"The biggest change through coaching was distinctly an increase in self-confidence and awareness of self-confidence. I would recommend this to lawyers because having an outside objective person gives me an honest critique of myself and allows me to see what I am not able to see without that objectivity. It is one of my best decisions because it has improved my life. Without self confidence and self-awareness, you’re kind of in the dark. And it is the best decision because I invested in myself and there is a return on that. I can’t place a value on it. It’s so important that I can’t even think of the word. It is priceless."
