My name is Angie Bellinghausen. I have over 25 years of experience. I am a Licensed Independent Mental Health Practitioner (LIMHP) and Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LADC), as well as a Certified Life Coach. I have extensive experience with best practices and strength-based care. I combine the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Transactional Analysis (TA), and encourage the use of mindfulness. I have experience working with clients for self-empowerment and personal growth, depression and anxiety reduction, stress reduction, grief and bereavement, increased coping skills and mindfulness, self-care, life challenges, as well as mental health and substance use issues.
I have been privileged to work with a wonderfully diverse population of clients that has never stopped to amaze me and enriched my knowledge and understanding as a therapist and Life Coach. I continue to strive to increase my knowledge and training with a holistic approach. I believe in focusing on healing and increasing wellness rather than focusing on a diagnosis. I believe in both a traditional and integrative approach to therapy and allowing the client to find what best resonates with them. We are all on a journey through life facing challenges as they come. I believe part of my journey is to help individuals through life’s challenges. For me, helping other is a privilege and an honor.

I really don't know what I would have done without Angela this year. She listens so deeply and truly cares. She has a great sense of humour and tells it like it is, if you're ready for that - and supports you no matter what. She was always there in the chat when things got tough in between sessions and she always sent helpful worksheets and anything that she felt I would benefit from. Don't hesitate to work with Angela, she's the real deal and she will support you in an empathetic, safe and caring environment. Thank you for everything Angela :)

Angela is a very thoughtful, empathetic and highly intelligent person. She gives you tools to get through a variety of obstacles. Due to her vast experience she has the ability to help you identify negative thought patterns and go beyond to understand their root causes. She also has a spiritual, hollistic approach which adds a whole other layer and truly enriches our sessions.

Angelas a wonderful counsellor, she is kind and compassionate and you can see how much she cares about her clients. I feel heard and understood within the sessions and feel safe talking about subjects I am unable to elsewhere. I am grateful for her support.

I am new to online counselling and therapy and so had apprehensions. Angela immediately put me at ease, we connected very quickly, and I’ve benefited greatly from the short time we’ve worked together. Our first interaction was when I messaged her whilst in the midst of insomnia brought on by my anxiety and pmt. Angela responded very quickly with really helpful advice and practical solutions. Since then our sessions have been so supportive and productive, and I’m finding them so beneficial.
