About Me

I am a licensed clinical marriage and family therapist in the state of Kansas with over 10 years of experience. I have worked with couples and individuals suffering from PTSD, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, and childhood trauma, to name a few. I have provided EMDR therapy and trauma therapy exclusively in the past 2.5 years specializing with military populations.

My counseling style is experiential in that I work with the client toward healing and management of mental health concerns to improve one's overall health and well being. My approach is informed by attachment theory and family systems and I use approaches that include Gottman theory, CBT, EMDR, DBT and ACT therapy but am informed in other approaches that will be tailored to your special needs. We get in the boat together and we paddle at your pace.

It takes a safe and caring relationship to foster change. I will provide that relationship for you and together we will face the journey of self evolvement and overall health and wellness. If you are ready to start this journey, I am ready to get in the boat with you.

Let's begin!

Really enjoyed talking with Angela, helped in a short period of time. Thank you!

Written by B.R. on May 17, 2022 after therapy with Angela for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and parenting issues

Angela is great. She is so easy to get along with. She shares personal experiences that are helpful. Sometimes I wish she would listen a little more. I feel cut off when she talks a lot. Overall, Angela is a great person and counselor. She gives great tips on personal improvements that are practical and helpful.

Written by G.R. on May 14, 2022 after therapy with Angela for 3 months on issues concerning trauma and abuse

I loved every discussion I had with Angela. Some days, I leaned on her expertise and the knowledge that there were names for the things my husband and I were experiencing. She could explain how other people made it through problems like ours.
Other days, she sounded outraged over things I had to go through. loved that. And always she was kind and understanding.
After several months, I feel able to go on without therapy, but if I am in a weak place again, I know I will wish for Angela.
If you need help, she will be there.
I am so thankful.

Angela has been such a wonderful person to work with. She is very personable, easy to talk to, and was able to share real world examples of similar situations which was really helpful. My relationship with myself and my husband has become even stronger. I realized quite a lot about myself and appreciated the thought-provoking questions asked. I'm so glad I reached out for help!

Written by W.A. on Mar 04, 2022 after therapy with Angela for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, sleeping disorders, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, bipolar disorder, and coping with life changes

Angela has been extremely helpful in my mental health journey and recovery from a bout of depression. She’s helped me create, build and reinforce useful strategies to help me grow as a person.

She’s professional yet cordial at the same time and utilizes a variety of methods in our sessions to assess and address each of your concerns. I’ve appreciated the messages of encouragement outside of formal sessions and the worksheets provided. Can’t thank Angela and the BetterHelp platform for everything its helped me accomplish.

If you are still reading this and have any mental health concerns please give yourself the gift and pleasure of becoming a better version of yourself.

Written by J.E. on Nov 11, 2021 after therapy with Angela for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and career difficulties

Angela has been incredibly helpful in providing insight into myself and the relationships around me. She has guided me towards tools I need to move forward in my own life, but personally and interpersonal. She knew when to provide constructive honesty, but also knew when to simply get a conversation started and then encourage me to come to my own conclusion. Angela was always willing to learn herself if it meant helping understand a situation, and I am grateful I was able to work with her.

In the brief couple months that I’ve worked with Angela, she has helped me overcome damaging thought patterns related to traumatizing experiences. She has also been a great resource to flush out marital disputes to. Angela is thoughtful and kind but also direct in a constructive way. I am so grateful to have spent the time working with her. 10/10 would recommend.
