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!

Angela is a very insightful, experienced, intuitive and compassionate counselor. She has gone out of her way to make time for me when i need her, even over the holidays. Very satisfied.
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.
Angela's support has helped me make massive changes in my life in just a few months. She is smart, patient and compassionate, and I am relentlessly grateful for all the assistance she's given me. I'm lucky to have the opportunity to work with her and I can't recommend her highly enough.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Angela has been super helpful in the short time I have worked with her. She has given me several exercises to help me cope with my anxiety and definitely recommend her expertise!
She's amazing. I've never felt better about my anxieties and life in general. Her support makes me feel like I can accomplish my goals.
Angela is an amazing psychologist! She helped me to understand a lot of things about myself and the ways to deal with the issues in my life. I felt very comfortable with sharing my thoughts & feelings with her and she guided me during the whole process. I feel like many of the questions in my head found the right answers and I feel released now. Thank you, Angela! :)
Angela is quick to respond to my messages. She seems to understand my issues and gives great suggestions and input. I feel comfortable sharing my experiences with her.
