Marriage and Relationship Counseling
In my Thumbtack request, consultation, and at the beginning of my coaching call, I mentioned a particular issue I really wanted to talk about. That request felt ignored (we didn't talk about it AT ALL), which was disappointing. She took the session over and had me go through a visualization activity that I a) had to ask the point of at the end, and b) didn't get much value out of because of where I am in my life journey. I was also surprised we didn't take the time to really set expectations and discuss what I wanted out of the coaching relationship and her expectations of me. I am not looking for a coach that runs the agenda - I personally don't think that holds the coachee accountable. To me, accountability is the most important thing that separates a therapist from a coach (this is based on my 5+ years of working for a personal coaching firm, being coached, and doing some StrengthsFinder coaching myself). To be fair, Angela did not know I had that much exposure to coaching and very specific expectations, AND she didn't ask, which is really my point. If you're reading this to get an idea if Angela is for you, here's what I would say based on my experience: if you are new to coaching and are looking for someone to guide you through the process, she's probably a good place to start! If you're like me and looking for more of a partnership, be VERY clear about that with her from the beginning. I can't say if she's a good or bad partner in crime because I did not have that experience. She seems very smart and confident, so I'm betting she could be. *Disclaimer: This review is based on one 30 minute consultation and one 1-hour coaching session, so take it for what it's worth.Jan 18, 2017VerifiedLife Coach Round Rock's reply
Hi Liv, I want to thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review and for your feedback. I do try to ask about the clients expectations from coaching during the consultation call and I do apologize if I missed that question when speaking with you. I plan to add it to my questionnaire to ensure I am well informed for the future. Best Wishes, Angela
Angela is a very nice and outstanding woman who does listen to what others have to say. I feel like I have been able to work on my short comings in a positive mannerMay 25, 2015Verified
Angela is great! I would very highly recommended her to anyone!Dec 9, 2016Verified
Angela is great. She is teaching myself and my significant other how to communicate better and really boil down to what's going on in our relationship. We have been using what she has recommended and we are feeling successful. During our meetings she has always been open minded and full of great advice. She doesn't hesitate to ask questions that need to be asked. Scheduling is super easy and the location is nice and very accessible. Highly recommended for individual or couples coaching.Jun 11, 2016Verified

While we are still seeing Angela we loved our first session. In a brief she opened our ours to things we werent doing "hearing each other" and seeing each others perspectives.Apr 21, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $100 an hour for private coaching appointments. I do not accept insurance but I do offer a sliding scale fee application which provides a discount anywhere from 20% to 60% based on monthly income and family size. I provide teachers, police officers, fire fighters, veterans, and active duty military persons and their immediate family with a 20% discount regardless of their income as a way of giving back.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I generally do a free 20 minute phone consultation to get to know the client better and answer any questions they may have about my process. If we are a good fit then we schedule an appointment and go from there.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a bachelor's degree in psychology and I am currently getting my masters degree in Marriage and Family Counseling so that I can go further in helping my clients meet their goals. I have training in stress management and in solution focused work. I continue to educate myself and look for resources that I can use to assist my clients.
