"Angie is so genuine. I connected with her immediately because I knew she saw me. Through her authenticity she instantly creates a foundation of trust. Her knowledge and experience makes this "awkward" conversation normal and natural. Her love for people and passion for this space shines through in her coaching." Melissa Loveland, OH
Getting To Know Angie
My professional background spans about 19 years. I studied social work and received my Bachelor's Degree in 2004 from Illinois State University and my Master's Degree in 2007 from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I began my journey in the field of domestic violence, child welfare, and then school social work. I later began providing family counseling as well. I've always been fascinated with how people relate to one another both in platonic as well as romantic relationships. I've particularly enjoyed discovering the root causes of our thought processes, behavioral patterns, and perceptions of ourselves and others.
We're all born with a clean slate so to speak, but as we navigate life, we have various experiences that lead us to where we are currently.
Now, as it pertains to intimacy, I've learned from the best... children and adolescents.
If you've ever wondered how intimacy shows up in your life, just think about your childhood and I promise you, that's where most of the answers lie.
I became intrigued with intimacy coaching as I navigated my own marriage. I've personally experienced connection as well as disconnection in my marriage and I've witnessed other couples navigate the ebbs and flows of their relationships as well. One thing I've noticed that all couples have in common is a yearning for intimacy. That can be physical, intellectual, spiritual and/or emotional.
And the longer you've been in a relationship with someone, the more intentional you have to become in giving and receiving intimacy because the novelty eventually fades. But I'm here to share with you that you can rediscover that intimacy and experience an even deeper connection with your partner than ever before.
