Hello! My name is Angie and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over five years of experience providing therapy services. My experience is in a wide range of therapeutic settings including: inpatient psychiatric hospitalization, domestic violence shelters and with a community mental health agency. I have worked with clients affected by depression, anxiety, substance use, trauma and relationship challenges as individuals, couples and families. Additionally, I am a military spouse and have worked closely with active duty members as well as family members. I can personally and professionally understand the unique challenges associated with this population.
As a military spouse, I moved frequently but have finally settled permanently in the panhandle of Florida. I received my Bachelors degree in Psychology and my Masters Degree in Social Work from Indiana University.
My approach to therapy is client centered as I strongly believe and recognize clients are the experts on their lives and should determine the path, intensity and length of their therapy. I like to use a strengths-based and solutions-focused approach and I draw on multiple treatment modalities to guide clients in establishing realistic treatment plans to help them reach their desired therapeutic goals. I tend to use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to assist clients in exploring relationships among their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to assist them in discovering any dysfunctional thought patterns leading to self-destructive behaviors and beliefs. I also support clients through developing coping skills using mindfulness and emotion regulation.
It takes courage and bravery to take the first steps towards the change you desire. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
