"In the beginning I thought, 'I don't need coaching. I'm smart enough to figure out my own problems. My emotions don't control me.' Turns out, I couldn't be more wrong. Anna's coaching isn't about her spouting off timely sage-like advice (even though that happens often). What her coaching provides is the tools and ideology to help yourself - to actually be in control of your life by harnessing the power in your everyday thoughts and feelings. I was hesitant before, but now I am her biggest advocate and follow her model every day. So, if you truly want to be a captain of your fate and master of your own destiny, then spend the time and money to take the course. In the end, the understanding and insight you'll gain will ultimately save you much much more."

"Working with Anna was amazing! I felt rejuvenated and excited to tackle life after meeting with her! I've met with therapists and other people in the past to help me figure stuff out, but it wasn't until Anna where I finally learned how to make actual changes in my life. She provided the tools and instruments needed to make meaningful, positive change in my life. It was incredible!! I also super appreciated that she genuinely cared about me and my situation, my progress and setbacks. She is fully invested in you! I would recommend her to everyone, far and wide!
- Bryson Alejandro, Actor/Producer
"Anna's coaching came at a critical point in my life when I was facing major challenges and changes at work, and at the same time I was struggling with some personal feelings of negativity and resentment. I was hopeful that coaching would help me through these problems, but it still took a leap of faith to commit to hiring a life coach. As it turned out, hiring Anna was one of the best things I could have done. Anna helped me change my perspective and though processes in such a way that what I had previously perceived to be problems were literally turned into great opportunities."
"Anna's coaching style puts you at ease and really helped me open up and work through things I was afraid my whole life to even think about. It has profoundly improved my marriage and my perspectives on my career. I feel capable of making decisions quickly and for the right reasons. Totally life changing!"

"I never thought of myself as someone who would benefit from coaching, but I was happily surprised by the experience. Anna is wonderful at listening to your circumstances and providing a thoughtful and clarifying point of view. Anna really helped me realize that I need to separate my perceived opinions of my own emotions from the reality of why I am having that emotion. Anna has a very calm voice, and is able to convey her advice without judgement. I really enjoyed our sessions!"
"Anna is very wise Beyond her years. She really challenges you to get connected to your beliefs and your values. She is very chill and laid back. She makes you feel comfortable but also tells you what you need to hear. She has a true gift. She will help you reach your dreams and goals and be the best family member you can be."

"Anna was extremely helpful in showing me ways to break down life's situations. She made it easy. I really enjoyed working with her and learning a broad range of tools applicable in each specific scenario I find myself in."

"Anna is an incredible coach! I always came away from our sessions feeling inspired and refreshed. She helped me navigate my life during some really difficult circumstances, and helped me feel more confident about facing future trials. She has a very calm presence and I felt comfortable and safe talking with her. I would definitely recommend Anna as a coach for anyone who wants to improve their life!"
- Laura Wright
"I think everyone can benefit from having a good life coach, and Anna is a GREAT one. She's completely open to helping you in any aspect you need help with so you can physically see your thoughts and how they are affecting you. I especially appreciated how Anna showed me that even if I was getting something done with a particular thought pattern, other potential thought patters had the ability to give me a lot more fuel. I would definitely recommend Anna as a coach for creatives as well as anyone who wants to actively improve their life.
