Angela Tooley

Certified Relationship Coach

In nearly 20 years of marriage, Angela has learned the importance of not letting other obligations take priority and cause neglect of the relationship we have with our spouse. Ideally, both partners work to keep the relationship healthy, but Angela knows how much good can come even when only one spouse is fighting for the health of the marriage. From her experience of dealing with a husband who struggles with pornography, Angela is particularly passionate about helping women who find themselves in a similar situation, or who may even be struggling with sexual issues themselves. Angela is a Board Certified Christian Life Coach (CLC), a Trained Partner Coach with The Association of Partners of Sex Addicts Trauma Specialists (APSATS), and a Certified Pastoral Sexual Addiction Specialist (CPSAS).

Blueprint for Success

Prior to your appointment, you will complete a coaching agreement and a detailed coaching assessment. Your answers to these very important questions are critical to helping us better understand your relationship and how we can help you achieve your goals for it. Your coach will review your assessment and build a customized plan that will morph and expand as you continue working together.


Begin The Work

The first 1-2 sessions are designed for you and your coach to get to know each other. Together, you will review the assessment and plan to ensure they reflect the full dynamics of your relationship. You’ll also identify which areas need the most attention. The relationship with your coach is vital for your growth and improvement, so we want to make sure you both feel the partnership is a good fit.


Becoming Self Aware

The only way to improve a marriage is to focus on what you can change… YOU. Your coach will help you identify your ‘blind spots’ that are hurting your marriage and take a deep dive into your contributions to the relationship. You will learn powerful skills and tools that can help you take immediate action to begin to repair the damage, heal past wounds and improve communication between you and your partner.


Beacon of Hope

When your spouse sees changes in you, they may become cautiously curious. They can still be giving you the same “I’m done” messages, but they are at least open to spending some time trying to assess the future of your relationship. Your coach will meet with you together (or with your spouse alone, in order to build trust) to determine if you are both willing to fully commit to working on the relationship together.


Build A Better Relationship

When both of you are fully committed to working on the marriage, with your coach’s continued guidance, you will rebuild the relationship using the new skills you’ve learned during this process. You will map out an aftercare plan to ensure the positive changes stick for the long haul. If your spouse chooses to leave, your coach will be there to guide you through the healing process and help you be in a better place to have a healthy relationship in the future – with yourself and/or with someone else.
