About me

Hi! Therapy is a very courageous process so being this far in your journey is tremendous. Perhaps you know exactly what brings you this point and you're just looking to connect with the right person to do the good work. Maybe, you're not quite sure what's going on and want to do some exploration. If we establish a counseling relationship, then our work will be centered in honesty, authenticity, and a development of trust.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Board Approved LPC Supervisor. My training has given me the opportunity to gain a vast amount of experience in counseling, higher education, teaching, and diversity & inclusion. My approach to counseling draws upon these experiences and allows us to explore unique and creative avenues to do therapy.

Truthfully, most of us are walking around with at least one issue that is affecting how we work, make friends, and interact with the ones we love. How can those relationships and more importantly, our own well-being, be affected if we took time to peek a bit further into just that one? I welcome the chance to partner with you to see if we can figure that out.

I’ve had regular sessions with Angela for almost two years now, and I couldn’t be happier. She has made me into the person I want to be, and I truly could not thank her enough.

This is my first experience with counseling and Angela has made it easier than I thought it would be. I think she matches your pace with the comfort level you show when it comes to progress and gives very real and reasonable challenges to focus on in order to go on to the next step. Her attitude towards your experiences are very curious and reassures the truth that leads to a clearer path forward for you.

She’s great. Probably the best therapist I had. She listens closely and understands your point of view before she gives her advice. She’s helped me discover many things about myself in the short period we’ve been speaking.
