Hi there, I'm Ekaterini!

My Name is Ekaterini Angelis and I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), I work with clients statewide via telehealth in California and Missouri. I primarily work with adults and specialize in anxiety, depression, complex trauma, domestic violence, relationship conflict, self-esteem, grief & loss, perfectionism, adult children of narcissistic parents, spiritual abuse, and religious trauma.

My approach

I utilize a humanistic approach and incorporate family systems as well as cognitive behavioral therapy to help my clients better understand themselves. I work with clients to collaboratively and problem-solve tools to make positive change. I am trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and utilize a trauma-informed approach when appropriate.

My focus

I find that I work well with clients who have had relational trauma that affects their current relationships with themselves and others. This can often present in the form of negative self-talk and self-esteem, perfectionism, persistent feelings of guilt and shame, anxiety, and depression. I have ample experience working specifically with those who have a history of abuse from a partner, friend, or family member, adult children of narcissistic parents, and religious trauma.

My communication style

My aim is to create a comfortable, open, and honest environment. Therapy is a very vulnerable process; my goal is that you feel you can count on me to come from a place of understanding and non-judgment.

My journey to mental healthcare

I wanted to be a therapist since a very young age. One of the things I value most is being able to help others work through difficult times in their life, and helping empower them to be happier, healthier versions of themselves. Being able to see my clients make progress and find healing is invaluable and I am always honored to be a part of that process.

My goals for you

My approach to goal setting is from a collaborative perspective. I will ask questions and work with you to find out what you want out of therapy and work on a plan to get you there. I believe it's important to explore short-term and long-term goals and to reassess as therapy continues and you make progress throughout our sessions together.

My first session with you

In our first session I will typically spend time getting to know you and what brought you into therapy. I will ask questions about what has been going on recently and gather some information about your history to better understand what may be contributing to some of your concerns. I believe that building trust with your therapist is important, and I aim to make this process as stress-free as possible, so I will always go at your pace and respect what you are wanting to bring into the session.
