I am a Washington State Licensed Mental Health Counselor, a Nationally Certified Counselor with the National Board of Certified Counselors, and Professional Member of the American Counseling Association. In my education, I received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Florida International University with a minor in Fine Arts, and attended Miami's Barry University where I obtained a dual Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling with a specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy.
I have over 10 years experience working in the mental health field in various settings including managed care with insurance companies, over 5 years working with non profit agencies providing direct crisis counseling for youths and their families, and supervisory level positions to other mental health professionals. Currently I own and operate Cloverleaf Counseling, a private practice. I am also a parent, animal lover, and active community member.
My primary specialties include working with adult and teenage individuals, couples and family counseling, maternal and postpartum support, and parenting styles. I have experience treating clients across a range of diagnoses and functionality especially adjustment disorders, anxiety and depression, addictions and substance abuse, eating disorders and self-harm, and relationship issues.
The goals of my practice are to bring a sense of overall self empowerment, and provide a space of empathy and understanding to support change and healing. Cloverleaf Counseling utilizes Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing approaches. I also incorporate techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and provide Trauma-Informed care. Additionally my style focuses on respecting you as the expert of your own life, with the idea that nobody knows you better than you.
I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!

She's been great, makes me feel heard, constantly promoting a positive and productive outlook even when I'm prone to reject it. She's helped me put a lot of emotional and mental issues into context.
Angela is very kind and supportive. I am so glad we were matched.
Angela is a bright and thorough therapist. She has in a short time created a working relationship built on trust. I rarely feel therapists provide a real world approach to addressing issues, providing guidelines, and putting me into the position that I feel I can see things with more clarity.
