Hi there, I'm Angela!

I was raised as a child of a Vietnam veteran with PTSD. In the ’70s and ’80s, mental health was not a priority for many people. I saw firsthand what mental illnesses could do to individuals and families. I worked in restaurants and raised three children. I chose to break generational toxic patterns and cycles. That Is what brings me to where I am today. My approach is a combination of various theories, including but not limited to CBT, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused. Some of my therapeutic strengths are challenging irrational thoughts, creating goals, and managing symptoms of mental illness. I enjoy working with adolescents and young adults. I get it.

My approach

The modalities I enjoy using our CBT, REBT, solution-focused, motivational interviewing, humanistic, gestalt, and others as needed. One of my specialties is pinpointing areas of concern and working to manage the symptoms.

My focus

I enjoy working with adolescents and young adults, people that are going into adulthood or early into adulthood. I enjoy helping people see how their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are connected, challenging irrational thoughts, and creating goals. I truly love working with people who want to do the work.

My communication style

My communication style is to be realistic, use Layman's terms, humor, and be sometimes confrontational.

My journey to mental healthcare

I grew up in the 70s and 80s watched my father struggle with many symptoms of PTSD. I saw what that did to my mother and sister. And I felt all the things that it did to me. I decided after 25 years of working in restaurants that I wanted to do something different, and this is where my therapeutic path began. I went back to school at age 45 and received a master's degree in counseling.

My goals for you

The therapeutic goals I have for my clients are to manage symptoms of mental illness, reduce anger, manage stress, anxiety, and depression, set goals, communicate issues, and more.

My first session with you

In the first session with me, I would hope that you feel comfortable and free to talk about issues. I Feel confident in my ability to make you feel like I’ve known you for a long time. I will never pass judgment or be biased. Hopefully, when we meet, there will be a level of freedom and comfort to discuss what is happening without shame, embarrassment, or guilt.
