She has continuously helped me find ways to cope with my problems in a healthy way, and she's always on time and extremely polite.
I have worked with different therapists throughout the years and I have to say that this has been my best experience with this kind of work. I love first and foremost that my appointments can be done from home, that it's flexible and that there is a journal option to write to my therapist in between visits.
I wasn't sure how the connection would be with my therapist since we would be working together virtually but I have to say that I feel more open with Angela then I have with any other counselor I have worked with. Angela brings a calm understanding energy to our conversations and offers helpful ways of thinking for my particular issues. She is understanding and open to new ideas and exploring the why's behind thoughts, feelings and actions. She is always very encouraging and very positive. I have been really been enjoying our conversations and these talks have helped me grow emotionally. I am so grateful to Angela for her time and energy she puts into my life.
Angela is very compassionate and understanding. I generally felt much better after discussing situations and issues with her.
I've only been meeting with Angela for a few weeks, but I'm already starting to feel better than I was before. I really look forward to our sessions, and I appreciate that she helps me set goals for myself. I also really enjoy the resources that she shares - they're making me learn a lot about myself. I'm grateful for her!
Angela is a wonderful counselor that is very easy to talk to. It took no time at all to feel completely comfortable talking with her. She is a great listener and had some helpful tips and tools to share with me to help me work through one of the toughest times in my life. I appreciate her so much, and would recommend her service to anyone in need of counseling.
Thanks for being a person of influence in my life.
Angela is very helpful with offering guidance and resources.
Working with Angela Zavala for past 3 months has been a real eye-opener for me. I have always found reasons not to seek therapy in the past and was honestly very nervous before my first session with Angela. It was a lot easier than I imagined and Angela has a calm, warm and honest way about her that made it easy for me to open up. With her help I was able to discover so much about myself and recognize and alter negative thought patterns that I never questioned before starting therapy. She recommended so many great books and articles, webinars some I read and some I plan to read. She has a wealth of knowledge. I feel that she is genuinely excited about my progress and cares about me as an individual. She is quick to respond to my messages even when we don’t have a scheduled session. Thank you Angela Zavala!
Angela responded to my request within 1- hour of creating an account and I had a phone session scheduled within moments. The picture of her face with a warm welcome appeared on my screen while I was searching through the crisis numbers for immediate help - as the website stated it may take 24 hours or longer before a suitable match was found.
I wasn't sure how I was going to through the next moment, much less 24 hours.
I had many years of failed attempts of trying to "fix it myself", pent up inside of me and crisis mode was upon me.
She gave me the pinhole of hope I needed to pierce that hopeless spell I had always been strong enough to get through on my own. She gave me the tools to regain self-control.
Angela is flexible, genuinely apologetic when technology doesn't cooperate, but most of all, she asks questions. She guides our discussions so that our time is wisely utilized, yet still allows me to freely rant and ramble on should the need arise.
This platform allows me to take care of me, even with my extremely crazy schedule. Being able to message Angela 24/7 is awesome. But to get a response, guidance , feedback, affirmation, almost immediately, any day of the week...I'm thankful the experts in this field realize our crisis are not on a 40 hour work week, Monday - Friday 9-5 schedule.
I'm blessed to have Angela in my life, and there is not a session that has gone by that I have not told her as much. :-)
