Angela Hoffman

(MA, Licensed, Psychologist)

About Me

I am a Licensed Psychologist and Therapist with over twenty years total experience working with adolescents, adults, and families. I have a diverse background with experience in forensics (inmate populations), sexual abuse trauma, child abuse, depression/anxiety, and personality disorders. I have been in private practice for the past three years. I have expertise working with sexual offenders and the families of sexual trauma. I work in depth with individuals and families struggling with substance abuse and addiction.

I hold the belief that therapy is a means to effect positive change and increase wellness. I use a cognitive behavioral approach, which simply means that by understanding the way we think, we can modify those thoughts, and therefore modify how we feel. It is an empowerment approach that can provide hope when life feels hopeless.

I look forward to joining you on this journey to wellness, happiness, and fulfillment!

Written by M.A. on Oct 12, 2020 after counseling with Angela for 1 year and 10 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

i sm very greatful to have Angela as my counselor in this time of Covid 19. It is so great that i can see her and talk to her from my home. She is very competent, experienced, compassionate and really gets my concerns. I like the fact that i can write her in between sessions and she responds quickly. that is an added feature you don’t get in a traditional counseling setting . Thank you !

I feel like I am really being listened to. Angela also helps me to see a different perspective on how I feel and gives me information and tools to help better understand. I feel relieved when speaking together.

Mrs. Hoffman is very professional and always attentive. Having seen several therapists over the years, I can say honestly that no one has helped me as quickly or as efficiently as Mrs. Hoffman.

Written by E.R. on Apr 30, 2019 after counseling with Angela for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, and self esteem

Angela is an ANGEL! I can’t believe how she knows me so well already, this counseling started less than a month ago and she already knows how to talk to me in such a way that feels safe and trusting. I will ask her questions that I would normally be frightened to ask, but with Angela she makes the answers even less frightening. The point is I trust her and I’m so thankful I found better help and Angela!

I would recommend Angela. She is personable, caring, and is wanting to work with you and help you through difficulties. She really tries to build an understanding of you and helps you guide yourself in the right direction. I find our conversations thought-provoking and allows me to self reflect.

Angela comforts me in my journey to mental well being and understands how sensitive mental disabilities. She is knowledgeable and gives resources and hope. That's the biggest thing. She's the only one who's made me feel like she cares. She's kind, caring, compassionate and willing with each message sent. I appreciate her so much.

Written by A.M. on Feb 21, 2019 after counseling with Angela for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues

Angela is a wonderful counselor, she really takes time to listen to what I’m having trouble with. I feel like she picks up on things that may be the underlying reason I was struggling that I didn’t even realize was the issue. She gets back with me quickly and is always friendly and caring and very relatable. I would highly recommend her!

Written by C.H. on Dec 31, 2018 after counseling with Angela for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Angela Hoffman does a great job of acknowledging how a situation is making me feel. She gives me counter ways of looking at things to take the blame off myself and see things in another prospective. She is compassionate and asks follow up questions to get a grasp on the whole situation so she can deal with 100% of the problem. I get the feeling she knows there are deeper issues to my problems and is doing a good job of slowly bringing them to surface. I am very grateful I was matched with, Angela Hoffman.

Written by A.L. on Oct 31, 2018 after counseling with Angela for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and intimacy-related issues

Angela is great. She really listens and seems to genuinely care about helping you. She definitely know's what shes talking about. I feel very open to talk to her about anything without judgement.

Written by K.R. on Sep 26, 2018 after counseling with Angela for 2 months on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

Angela is a phenomenal counsellor. Throughout all our session, I really felt heard and understood by Angela. She wouldn't just say that she understands, but lead into an experience that she went through and that showed that she truly does understand. She provided me many many tools to help me cope with whatever I was going through, and all her tools actually helped me to think highly of myself, to respect myself, and she helped me realize a lot about myself- the things that I didn't notice that I was suppressing which is why I kept having the same emotions and worries that I was having. But Angela, helped me realize them and helped me to face them head on. It always relieved me knowing that I can go onto here, type whatever it was out to Angela, and Angela would respond so quick with no judgement in her messages at all but purely acceptance, which created a very safe environment for me to express my feelings. Angela is honestly the best at what she does and I felt so calm and relaxed talking to her.

Written by S.A. on Sep 10, 2018 after counseling with Angela for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Before talking to Angela my head was all swimmy with stuff. She helped and continues to help me sort it all out so I'm less stressed and can properly deal with my issues.

Written by R.E. on Sep 03, 2018 after counseling with Angela for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

I appreciate Angela so much. I didn't realize how much I actually needed someone to talk to about the things I'm currently going through in my life. While it isn't just a quick fix, it helps to have someone understand what I'm going through and offer advice.

Written by L.I. on Aug 13, 2018 after counseling with Angela for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, intimacy-related, and career
