About Me

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.

I think the world of Angela. She is an incredible listener who picks up on things that I might be missing. She's empathetic, knowledgeable, caring, and is genuinely tuned in. She has offered practical advice and she challenges me on my assumptions. This is a rough time for me, and she's been a steady and positive influence. Can't say enough positive things about her.

Angie is a fantastic counselor! She is punctual, kind, practical, a great listener, and works with my crazy schedule to secure my weekly slot. She offers useful strategies for de-stressing my work-life balance & it’s been wonderful for my mental health to share my work stress with someone trained and not my family. Everyone needs “an Angie!!”
