About me

Over 15 years I have assisted individuals/groups to achieve goals and perspectives to a healthier mindset. Through a supportive environment, I have been helping clients to utilize tools to guide them in personal challenges. Specializing in the medical arena, I assist clients with chronic pain, depression, and other challenges with a dedication to client-centered goals. I enjoy working with older teenagers, adults and geriatric populations. As a retired military veteran, I am sensitive to the needs of our active duty, veteran, and veteran family. I currently serve in the Red Cross as a Services to the Armed Forces Facilitator.
Being an LPN for over 30 years and an LCMHCS for over 15 years I have worked multiple fields including chronic pain. I utilize a blend of cognitive behavioral, Mind body Medicine, dialectical behavior practices and when a client asks Christian based practices.
I have served in active duty in the Air Force as a Diet Technician where I learned to counsel basic nutrition and received a DOL Masters certificate in this. I retired in the healthcare field in the North Carolina Air National Guard and have done three tours during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Angela Horton. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Angela is a very caring, solution oriented therapist. Her enthusiastic personality makes the sessions fun and her ability to put pieces together and draw conclusions is fantastic. She gives good, applicable advice and homework, and gently challenges faulty belief systems. I would highly recommend!
