TESTIMONIALS

Golden Sheep Life Coaching was the extra push I needed to go back into school. Something I've put off for a while now, due to numerous reasons. Found my way back on track, and now working on my professional career in dental school. Thank you for all your help in fueling my passion.
-I.M.

I recently had a baby and my world was upside down when I started working with Megan. In our sessions, Megan really helped me make sense of my evolving identity. We broke down daunting tasks into the smallest and easily achievable tasks. For example, during week one, I only had to floss! During our sessions, she created a space for me to safely process my thoughts, validated my feelings, and helped me reframe productively. Only after a few weeks, things are looking so much better. Working with Megan was a great decision and definitely recommend working with her! 
-M.H.

This has changed my perspective on life. This gives me a sense of hope that I can do anything that I put my mind to as long as I have patience and kindness towards myself. I’m forever grateful!
-C.N.

Megan is truly a delight to learn from. She is hilarious, current, concise, and present. Megan really practices what she preaches and has earned each of her lessons via experience. From learning all our names & doing research on our organization to tailoring workshops to our needs, Megan is an attentive and intentional coach we're proud to be in community with. Plus, she's always so fun to listen to! A trailblazing inspiration. 

-Community Outreach Manager: Austin Asian Community Health Initiative

I had the pleasure of sitting in on one of Dr. Nguyen’s talks. I found her to be very pragmatic and deliver extremely insightful and thought provoking information in a way that was easy to receive. After her presentation, she was open to connect with people further and delightful to converse with. It’s apparent she is knowledgeable and truly has a passion for what she does and the people she touches.
-Director | Sr. Mortgage Advisor: Summit Mortgage Solutions

My work with Golden Sheep Life Coaching was immensely meaningful. I was able to accomplish the goals we set during our sessions with the confidence that I had my coach cheering me on and backing me up. I am very grateful that I gave myself this gift and chose Dr. Nguyen- her training in psychology makes this process more therapeutic and allowed me to better understand the ways I was sabotaging my potential. Highly recommend!
-P.M.

Megan has been very helpful in helping me find the best path forward. She gives very helpful advice that is best suited for each of her individual patients. I would highly recommend her to anybody looking to find an empathetic, motivating, and helpful life coach. 
-J.R.

Just wonderful! When I first began my sessions, I was in a funk and felt no real sense of direction. I knew what to do, but lacked the motivation. Megan brought me back to the present and not only guided me but gave me the motivation to take the appropriate steps. 10/10 ❤️.
-J.C.
