Testimonials~The Power of Coaching


Angela is thorough and patient in her coaching.  She has great listening skills and can grasp not only what the client is saying, but also what the client wants. She is able to point out hidden talents and resources of the client.  I learned to look at my life clearer by keeping my eyes and ears open. She always had my interest at heart and I am more aware of what is important to me.

Her coaching style is caring, creative and systematic.  She leads clients to success in whatever challenge they face.  She uses coaching conversation to help clients come up with ideas and solutions for happier more successful lives.

The first time I heard about life coaching was through my friend Angela and I had no idea what it was.  I had been married for 23 years and was going through a divorce and a rediscovery of myself.  Angela coached me through some very difficult times and I could not have navigated through these changes without her guidance.  Her coaching skills helped me identify and focus on the most important aspects of my life.  Angela is an excellent listener who helped me clarify my values and desires for my future.  I highly recommend Angela as a life coach to anyone who needs some clarity, insight, support, and empowerment in their life.  Thank you Angela for all your help!

It has been a joy working with Angela, and I always find myself looking forward to our next session.  Angela creates an environment where I feel comfortable being authentic—she actually teases out my more central self in a very uplifting way—and calls me to speak from a place of greater clarity and knowing.  Working with Angela has allowed me to find this place in the freeing and supportive surroundings of the coaching relationship.  I am increasingly able to walk through the world and my daily challenges and opportunities on the firm foundation of my core self, with ever more tools and knowledge.  From here, wonderful direction continues to be found as the truth of my life is discovered and revealed.  Angela has very capably helped me to find my compass and learn how to use it.
