About Me

Hello there! Let me first start by saying thank you and congratulations! You should pat yourself on the back for taking the initiative to becoming a better version of yourself. Admitting that you may need guidance is hard, but here you are taking steps towards mental clarity. For that, you should be very proud of yourself, as you have crossed one of the biggest hurdles.

My name is Angela, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Pennsylvania. I earned a masters degree in Clinical Psychology in 2013. My undergraduate degree is in Clinical/Counseling Psychology with a minor in Criminal Justice. I recently earned a School Counselor Certification to expand my horizon in the counseling field. For 8 years, I worked as a Psychology Services Specialist in a correctional setting (Virginia and Pennsylvania). In this setting, I worked closely with clients experiencing many issues in both individual and group settings. A lot of my time has been spent helping people manage depression, anxiety, crises, grief, trauma, substance abuse, thoughts of suicide and/or self-harm, family conflict, anger, sexuality, and identity issues. I have also been lucky to attend many trainings to strengthen my awareness in the field.

I take a very client-centered approach and try to be as eclectic as possible to best meet my clients' needs. It is important that we can build a rapport combined with mutual trust to make your therapeutic experience a powerful and helpful one. I really enjoy an integrative approach that uses both cognitive-behavioral and humanistic therapy methods. I am a strong believer in mindfulness and would love to provide clients with different worksheets and techniques that would be helpful in their daily lives. Self-care is extremely important, so I will certainly be encouraging that on the regular. In my spare time, spending time with family and friends, traveling, exploring nature, reading, or hanging with my dogs is where you will find me (REMEMBER: self-care is key)!!

Whether it be myself or another therapist you see fit, I absolutely hope you find what you were looking for on your journey. If I seem like someone who may fit your goals and needs, please feel free to reach out. I look forward to talking to you soon!

Angela is very experienced and listens to me and my concerns. She gives me ways to deal with my thoughts and stuff in general.

I’m thrilled to be able to message someone who is working towards helping me on my own time in a way that benefits me most

Angela is amazing! She is insightful during sessions but also helps find resources to utilize during the time in between sessions. One day I was having a tough time and she went out of her way to make time for a session. I so appreciated that.

Angela is a great listener and supportive person. Angela Has been a great guide so far in helping me with my mental health. Even though we have only had a few sessions together I can’t believe how many positive changes I have been able to make. Excited for the future with Angela guiding me along the way.

Written by S.H. on Oct 13, 2020 after counseling with Angela for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, sleeping disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Angela’s changed my life drastically. I’ve always felt that the issues that I had were small compared to the struggles that others face. Angela never once made me feel this way and instead made me feel understood. She listened to everything I said and helped me change my mindset. She helped me identify the roots of issues and actively worked with me to combat them. In addition to just being a cool person, she exhibits a youthful energy that made me feel like I was talking to a best friend. I’d recommend her to anyone.

Written by O.L. on Jul 31, 2020 after counseling with Angela for 4 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and trauma and abuse

I personally did not connect well with Angela. I found that in our sessions we talked a lot about what happened in my week where I was waiting to talk about more intense issues in my life. She did help me figure out how to transition to another therapist and was very supportive and kind, just not the right therapist for me!
