By working with Angie Monko over the last six, short months, I have gained
a sense of strength and self-worth
that I had no idea existed inside of me. I was stuck in a downward, self-destructive cycle that I'd come to believe
was just my life and I'd better learn to deal with it.
Through holistic approaches, Angie helped me conquer one issue at a time. Once I broke through and realized
there was hope for me to be happy, it felt as if a million different switches had flipped on inside of me.
I just knew in my heart and felt in my soul that I was heading down a much better path that would change my life,
a path of self-worth, hope, and courage to move past the worst moments of my life and not let them control me.
Angie helped me to take small steps to help me break down my walls so that I could truly realize where all of the pain
and hurt was coming from. I realized that I had associated a lot of my depression and anxiety with specific incidents
that had happened in my life, but there was more within me that was provoking those feelings.
She brought to light different scenarios and patterns in my life that fed those feelings. We started working to first
acknowledge and understand those feelings, and then we attacked the true root of the problem and worked through
all the pain. Angie helped me blossom into the person I know I was truly meant to be. I feel so much more capable
I can now talk about and acknowledge the different incidents that happened in my life in such a different manner that
allows me to keep my peace. She taught me that it is okay to feel my feelings, but then I must step back and let go and
move forward. I feel as if I have a new relationship with myself and that I won’t let myself be hurt or controlled by my
I am so grateful that Angie helped me to get to know who I really am and gain a different, freeing perspective of life.
I am a work in progress. I can only imagine what my future holds! I realize that future obstacles don't have to control me.
It is such a surreal feeling to not feel weighed down by a hundred different anchors tied to my ankles. I honestly believe
my new energy and way of thinking have helped rid me of toxic surroundings and brought relationships into my life that
match my energy and are helping me grow into the person I desire to be.
Angie, thank you so much for flipping my world around, and giving me such a different perspective on what life is. I can’t
wait to see how my future unfolds as I continue to grow and learn.
