Approach

As both an integral coach and a psychotherapist, I take the whole client into perspective as I work. My methodology includes deep listening and empathy, mindfulness, body-centered (somatic) awareness, in-session exercises and tools. I work with a multicultural lens, taking into consideration the individual’s cultural identity as well as how the environment reacts to that identity.

I believe that we are all innately whole, but we create a “committee” of limiting states (e.g. inner critics) in order to adapt to difficult life situations. I help clients recognize those states and shift out of them, thus giving them more access to their full potential.

The Integral Method I use is more concerned with Vertical Development: “helping the clients grow in ways that have them actually live in a different way, not just solve the problem in front of them” (see more at NVW blog post on Integral Coaching).

  • What are people saying?

    • “The journey that I took with Angella was a rewarding one. I appreciated her gentle but direct approach. For me, it was really about peeling away the layers to understand certain aspects about myself, both positive and negative. One highlight for me was her use of metaphors. That spoke deeply to me. More importantly, the work we did, equipped me with the necessary tools to take next steps. To new beginnings…”
    • “Angella is a skilled and experienced coach. Her background in tech and psychology enabled her to quickly understand my needs. She structured a program that helped me learn skills to better manage stress and confront life's challenges. Her approach is creative, engaging and effective. I truly enjoyed and benefited from the program.”
    • "Angella does a beautiful job giving a short yet powerful introduction to trauma. We know as coaches we’re going to encounter trauma in a client from time to time. What Angella does is give us some very useful tools for thinking about it, recognizing it, and being able to provide the right holding for the client in the moment if they’re experiencing it. Highly recommended as a first step for every coach to be more familiar with this really important (and, for many of us, scary) topic."
