Garland was extremely observant and compassionate in his approach to articulating his observations. His sensitivity allowed me to open up more easily then I would of with someone coming across more judgmental. He also had a focus of intent that emerged which gave me a lot to think about and apply to my life post meeting. Well worth the time! More...
Business & Career Coaching
Gave me just what I needed to know
Working with Garland has been extremely positive, incredibly uplifting, and has truly helped me to improve myself both personally and professionally. Garland's personality and demeanor makes conversation easy, and his advice and recommendations truly provide assistance and direction. I am truly thankful to have worked with Garland, and look forward to further improvement and continued successes with him as my coach. More...
I’ve been to a couple of places and respectfully they have never been able to get as close at Garland has. He really takes time to listen and understand your situation. He makes you feel heard and empowered. I only had one session, and I already feel better than I ever have before. I’m already looking forward to future ones! :) More...
Garland has helped me to persevere through a season of life containing unimaginable hardships. Not only persevere through these hardships, but grow from them and become a stronger person all together.
It's been both a wonderful and beautiful experience working with Garland. His listening and empathizing skills are top notch and the depth of our conversations have blown my expectations out of the water! Our sessions have kept me hopeful and empowered and I continue to believe things will only get better from here on out. You'll find that this man has a heart of gold, truly cares, and is someone you can sincerely trust. Highly recommend. More...
Been working with Garland for almost a month now and he is beyond amazing. He makes it feel like family. He actually listens to you. He works with you and is very patient. He takes his job very personal and does his absolute best to help you improve on yourself. I am very thankful for him. If it wasn’t for him in my life helping me, I wouldn’t be where and who I am today. More...
Super nice people!
I didn't end up using Overt Coaching because I used my university career center instead, but Garland and Daniel reached out to me, were super friendly, and responded promptly.
I highly recommend hiring a life coach on bark. The hourly rate can be pricey but it's definitely worth it. I've never met someone who cared so much about my life. It really means a lot to me!
Only just hired, but great communication.
Easy to work with. Great life advice. Keeps me coming back. I’d recommend Garland to anyone.
I don’t where to start but I had one session with Garland and to be honest I was in real mess and need of this session. Garland is an amazing listener and he guide me through all my emotions that cames out this . I cannot thank him enough for his help… Thank you Garland and god bless you.. More...
This is based on initial response. Response time was almost immediate. Spoke to Garland directly for approximately 20 minutes discussing current needs. Was able to quickly fill out needed forms and schedule first appointment. More...
I am grateful to have met Garland. I was in a very dark space and required severe therapy. From the start of our conversation Garland’s expertise sensed my level of emotional dissatisfaction along with his outstanding listening skills.
Garland and I partake in a quick breathing exercise. At that very moment I knew Garland was the one. I felt a connection as if he was a member of my family caring about my well-being. He truly felt like the big brother I never had with all the life tools. He’s passionate, knowledgeable, and is everything you would need in a therapist. This is my first time reaching out for immediate assistance and I felt his urgency to want to help me and get me back to a stable path. I’ve open a new chapter in my life driven towards mental healing and on my recent journey Garland has not only exceeded my expectations as a therapist but also has made me into a believer that no matter the circumstances always love yourself and for that I will always be thankful. My only regret is that I had not reached out to Garland sooner. Thank you for your kind words of wisdom. More...
Garland is very helpful and very real. Not gonna lie I wasn’t sure if getting anyone from this site was gonna be worth my time, but garland came through and genuinely showed interest in wanting to help and be a part of helping get to a good place in my life. Never met a more real abs caring guy, and no im not just saying that, this dude cares, and that’s rare to find these days. I highly suggest him to anyone that’s struggling right now. Aside from the life coaching, I feel that I gained a very good friendship also. Thank you garland, I appreciate you caring my Friend. More...
Very decent and totally into wanting to help. The talk for a short time over the phone showed the knowledge and being realistic that Garland possessed
Garland and the team at Overt Creative are unmatched in their ability to make time for their clients and meet them exactly where they are in their journey. Garland has a masterful ability to pick up on his client's energy (even remotely!) and can see through any excuse to get to the deeper problems that his clients are dealing with. I strongly recommend Overt Creative for anyone who is looking to improve their life, career, and relationships! More...
Writing this review I want to make sure I’m as clear and meticulous as possible with the message I am intending to convey. The experience of seeking out a new life coach is one, extremely honorable in the sense you know you want more and two, terrifying. There is so much knowledge and so many life coaches how can you know your hard earned money is going to good use? Please trust me when I say this, Working with Garland is already proving to be best decision the universe has given me the pleasure of making. How is this true you might ask? Honestly, it just feels right. Even with my track record of indecisive habits for some odd reason I am fully certain I’m interacting with the exact person I’m meant to be in Garland. He was so subtle yet deep within our first 30 minutes of the conversation that I was having epiphanies I never thought possible. I’m confident I will remain working and staying in contact with Garland for years to come, and I already know I will benefit from this investment in myself tenfold. If you were just as I was searching through reviews to see if you’ve found the right life coach please trust me in saying this, you absolutely have. More...
Having someone outside your box to give you a perspective of yourself that you never realized was there, was and is enlightening and encouraging. I am so thankful for the time I was given to help me see my potential. More...
Garland has helped me jump start my life in the little time that I have talked to him. He was very calm and comforting thru the process. He also helped me focus on what’s important for me in my life right now. I really appreciate his time and effort to get me going in the right direction. More...
Garland is the person that will bring light back into your life. The care and energy he brings is honestly unreal, it grabs you, and brings calmness and joy. Garland gives you the tools to believe in yourself and find your strength. He truly is an angel, he has allowed me to breathe again and see life as the gift it absolutely is. More...
Garland has been a pleasure to work with. He’s a great listener and does a fantastic job of empathizing. He genuinely cares about the impact he makes on other people. His authenticity is rare. I would highly recommend anyone who is hoping to make positive change in their life to work with Garland or another coach on the team. More...
Garland is the man. He really knows how to connect with you. Im the type of person that don't open up , because of the life i was raised up from. Garland really can make you feel comfortable right from the start great guy. His work is really appreciated. Great listening and really good vibes. I highly recommend More...
Garland is the man! He is a great listener and life coach. I’ve always felt like he’s very easy to talk to and someone who is very intuitive and supportive. I value his calmness and perspective during our talks. I highly recommend working with Garland! More...
Very personable, and an all-around great listener, Garland makes himself available on on levels.
My experience with Garland was very deep emotionally. He really listens and understands what you’re going through and truly wants the best for you.
It was a great overall experience, Garland has really helped me see a lot within me that I used to look within and find true answers, thank you Garland God bless
Garland is great. We are new in our collaboration of ideas but so far I feel like we can really get somewhere. The challenge is the challenge but you find the right folks and you can make it through!
He seems like a great guy. Very charismatic and after explaining some of the issues I was having he made some pretty valid points that I had not thought of. Obviously one session with him won't fix all my problems, but that goes for anyone. Even after we were done with our little trial session he's texting me at 10 pm on a Tuesday. This man clearly cares about his job and his client. If you're looking for someone to hire for your life coach, chances are you can stop searching the internet now. More...
Garland is awesome! He listens and gives unbiased feedback regardless the situation. He remains positive sends praises when he sees positive actions. He's good to go!
OCC has helped me get through both highs and lows over the past year. Working with me through both relational and professional matters. I feel better than I ever have and most definitely thank Garland for his insight, guidance and being a part of my personal development. More...
Working with Garland has been so comforting and felt like a safe place. Growing up with Mexican traditional parents is hard to talk to about mental health.
For them, they never really talked about it as much when they were younger so I myself was taught to suppress my own feelings thinking it was a normal thing to do. Garland has made me more confident of who I am and more true to my emotions that I don’t believe my parents ever could.
Garland is absolutely amazing! By nature im a skeptical person and especially when it comes to hiring a life coach or a therapist. But I must say that Garland is truly the real deal! Before hiring him, I spoke with probably 10 other coaches which were all great but Garland stood out the most for me. He was extremely helpful, interested in helping, genuine, caring & understanding and a great problem solver. I right away got clarity in my situation by speaking with him. He was able to recognize the issue and gave me tools on how to solve those issues. This man is truly God gifted. Besides being extremely professional, he was very down to earth and extremely easy to speak with. Very understanding and he literally feels your pain and concerns with you. Very knowledgeable guy as well! Garland thank you! You were able to give me a discount when times were rough financially and that showed that you are genuine and that money is not why your motive. You’re a mentor, a life coach, role model and a friend for life. Cheers buddy 🍻 More...
He is a great help and knows what he is talking about. His help is so important for me and I appreciate it. He is helping me and my family get through a very difficult time.
Communicating with Garland and telling him some of my issues and having him listening to them made me feel so much better, he also prayed for me on another occasion which made are video call much better, like i knew him and he understood what i was feeling, i recommend Garland if anyone needs to speak to him, he listen and gives you great advice, Thank you Garland for listening, may God continue to Bless you so you can Bless others as well.
Garland is a really fantastic person just in general, and is a wonderful coach and person to have on your team. He will make you feel comfortable from the get and is accommodating, generous, honest and of course, very helpful. You couldn’t find a better coach and I would highly recommend him to anyone! More...
Garland is a super awesome person he actually really cares about his clients. He help me with a separation with my wife of 15 years. He helped me regain control of my life that was spinning out of control, get out of my depression and focus on more important daily tasks to become a more happy and confident person. Garland really seems like a great friend with an ear and knowledge to help you. I definitely recommend his Services. More...
When I decided to reach out for guidance during a stressful period in my life, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to open up to somebody and allow myself to feel vulnerable. After our very first conversation, that feeling was no longer present. If you’re a cautious person like myself, I believe that you can put your guard down and open up with Garland. More...
Working with Garland has changed my life. He help me get a grip on my life and open up and be honest with myself in ways I never have before.
Working with Garland is a profound experience. We are able to get to the core of what needs to be looked at anytime we speak. Until meeting him, I had never been around someone who, just by their presence, leads me to be my most raw, vulnerable self. I always feel in very safe and unconditionally loving hands. Very grateful we crossed paths. More...
Garland is a great counselor and therapist. He and I immediately connected on a deep personal level and I highly recommend his services to those in need of guidance during times of divorce or general uncertainty. He gave immediate items for me to work on and focus energy to and it was an insightful first session! More...
My experience with garland has been such a positive experience. He has really helped dig deep within and embrace my inner warrior, I forgot excised in me. He is extremely intuitive and has a way of knowing exactly what’s lacking in your life, and is not afraid to tell you what it is you need to hear. He is a very good listener and genuinely cares about you, I Highly recommend him!! More...
Garland is the most relationally and emotionally intelligent person I’ve met. His care for people is exceptional. And his ability to quickly pinpoint exactly what you need to work on in your heart, mind, and/or soul will surprise you and take you to new heights. My confidence and income have both risen measurably since becoming friends with him 3 years ago. Whether you need career, life, relational or spiritual guidance you will not leave any meeting with Garland empty handed. More...
I enjoyed working with Garland as he was very supportive and helpful. His ability to read through my situation right away clearly shows that he is very good at what he does. I can tell that he genuinely wanted to help & offer a listening ear. Thank you Garland !! More...
