Sunrise on Nature


Karyl Draper, R.N., B.S.N., L.C.S.W.

I am a psychotherapist in Los Angeles and have worked in the field for the past 34 years. In the last several years, have had the opportunity to collaborate with Annie to work with my clients on specific issues that were requiring attention but also interfered with where the therapy needed to go. 

I find Annie to be knowledgeable, empathic and instructive. She works with the client in setting reasonable goals to achieve necessary changes in their lives. My clients enjoy their work with Annie and find her to be kind and respectful but also hold them accountable. She has been a positive addition to their lives and my practice.


Coach Annie has been an invaluable guiding light during one of the most significant transitions in my life, as I made a leap from working as an employee over the last 35 years to embarking on the exhilarating journey of entrepreneurship. Her unwavering support, attentive listening, and reassuring presence were a beacon of strength throughout the six months we worked together.

Under Annie's mentorship, I witnessed my fears, self-doubts, and apprehensions gradually dissolve. She skillfully let me towards a place of clarity and purpose, helping me refine my vision for my new venture. Annie's perspective as a successful female business owner added a unique and invaluable dimension to her advice. 

With each session, Annie instilled in me the confidence to trust my instincts as I embarked on this transformative path. Her continuous reassurance bolstered my belief that I possessed the necessary tools to navigate my newfound identity as an entrepreneur. 

The time and resources I invested in working with Coach Annie were well worth it! I am immensely grateful or her support, and I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone seeking a knowledgeable and compassionate coach for their own journey of transformation.


Annie is a remarkable coach! Her wealth of knowledge and experience, integrated with her pronounced intuition, humility and intellect is unmatched. My work with her has empowered me to move through fear in my professional development through a marriage of tactical and intuitive-based strategies. I highly recommend Annie to anyone who is willing to examine their fear and take action through collaborative coaching.


Annie Charles is a seasoned and highly effective executive coach.  As a 30+ year successful business executive, I have had the benefit of working 1:1 with a coach on several occasions throughout my career.  It benefitted me personally as well as professionally. Recently, when I advanced from a senior executive leader into a c-suite role in a major financial services organization, I had the opportunity once again to engage an executive coach – I selected Annie. 

In working with Annie throughout the transition, my on-boarding and overall effectiveness sharply accelerated.   She helped me identify and strengthen the inherent skills I had acquired over the years that were necessary to maximize team effectiveness, business, and financial results. I leveraged powerful techniques she introduced which facilitated good decisions, work-life balance, and targeted messaging drawing out extraordinary performance in myself and others.  She has helped me become a more effective executive. 

Annie applies a practical approach and comfortable style in her coaching techniques.  She focused me on my capabilities and strengths while also helping me self-discover gaps, performance barriers and developmental opportunities.  She creates a safe confidential environment which enables authentic and vulnerable conversations accelerating development and results.


Annie has a strong ability to offer motivational insight naturally! While working with Annie, I found her to be a safe place to share ideas and concerns with the "job at hand". Because she is committed to evolving as a person as well as a mentor, she is able to offer direction and guidance as it relates to her own journey, which in turn has helped me as I face some of my own challenges. She will often come back to an idea or thought with a new perspective which has really been helpful for me. Now as I interact with her in a non-work environment, she has provided inspiration to better myself in my health and fitness. She regularly checks in with motivational quips that help to re-direct me to a positive place for the day!


Annie is a true and genuine leader, coach and friend.  I was fortunate to meet Annie at the beginning of my career. Her mentorship and expertise were such an inspiration, then and now. Annie undoubtedly helped shape my professional path, but also guided me on a personal level with her wisdom of life. I still ask myself-"I wonder how Annie would handle this situation."


Annie is a great coach who has guided me with my career decisions.  Her encouraging words and motivational style have helped me rid any self-doubt giving me the confidence I needed to be the best version of myself.  She is uplifting, authentic, and holds you accountable to your goals. I truly value her as a mentor/coach and highly recommend her. 


Coach Annie came into my life at an important time.  After successfully raising my children and preparing for a new stage in life, I wanted to work on myself for a change.  I spent many years serving and helping others, putting myself and my needs last.  After the kids moved on and my volunteer work ended, I needed to find a sense of purpose and well-being.   I was stuck and needed to rediscover who I am.

Annie helped me realize my inner strength and confidence, manage negative self-talk, and set focus and priority in my life.  She guided me down a path of self-development, careful to draw out my capabilities.  She reminded me that I am a powerful woman, in command of my thoughts, behavior and actions.


After working with Annie, I am healthier, happier, and I have the tools necessary to pull myself up.  I manage the chatter more effectively and am thoughtful to take better care of myself physically and emotionally.  Annie has taught me that I can overcome obstacles and more fully enjoy my life, family, and friends.  The sky is the limit!
