I am a Professional Counselor, licensed in Wisconsin. I have been a licensed therapist for about 2 years, but have over 18 years of experience working in the mental health field in a number of capacities. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and parenting problems to name a few. For the past four years I have been working with children ages 12-18 in a day treatment setting. In this position I worked with children and their families to help them manage things like ADHD, trauma and other behavioral issues.
My style as a therapist is warm, genuine, honest, casual and interactive. I believe in meeting clients where they are at, and treating them with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I believe that as the client, you are the expert on your own life with your own unique strengths to overcome life's challenges. Because of that my approach varies depending on the needs of the client. I have experience using the client centered approach, have been trained in Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. I also have had training in DBT and like to use those skills as needed. I enjoy talking with clients to determine what type of approach they feel will be most helpful and meaningful to them.
I know that for many of you it has taken immense courage to seek out counseling and to take the first steps towards making a change in your life. I look forward to meeting you, talking with you and helping you through making these changes and reaching your goals however I can.

Scheduling the better help app appointments and being paired with Angie has been the biggest gift to myself in the past year. She is a wonderful therapist, excellent listener, and had truly made my stressful job a more bearable existence and helped me to find a better balance and place to release my frustrations while also helping me to see the good. She’s the best. 6/5 stars ⭐️

Angie is great. She's a wonderful listener. I value her feedback, input, and expertise. I don't feel rushed or like I'm wasting her time. I feel valued as a person during our sessions. She makes me feel like my input is important, and therapy should be a collaborative effort. I appreciate all of that.

When meeting with Angela, it is evident that she gives a lot of thought to her responses/guidance before speaking. She makes sure to follow up on topics discussed in the prior sessions. I never feel rushed during our sessions.
