I am a licensed independent clinical social worker in Alabama with over 10 years of experience working with young adults, military families and the LGBTQ+ community. I earned a Master of Social Work degree from Alabama A&M University. I work with individuals experiencing a wide range of concerns, such as anxiety, depression, grief, and relationship issues. I genuinely want to know and understand you. I will listen to your story with heart and empathy. While validating your feelings and experiences, I am committed to treating you with respect in a warm, comfortable, and non-judgmental atmosphere.
My counseling style is warm, interactive, holistic, and supportive. The client controls the pace and focus of our work. My approach combines person-centered, cognitive behavioral therapies, and motivational interviewing. Realizing that no two people are alike, I tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet the client's unique and specific needs.
We all experience challenging moments in our lives. It takes great courage to ask for help during these times. This is where counseling begins. I honor your bravery and your decision to find your joy and live your truth. I am available and dedicated to helping you live your best life. I look forward to working with you!

Angela is easily the best therapist I’ve ever had! She was easy to work with, helpful, and supportive. I always felt like I could tell her what was happening in my life and she would understand and be supportive. I made more progress in the few months we worked together than I did in years of therapy.

Angela is amazing!!! She listens and she gets to the bottom of issues I have so quickly and explains it to me in a way that also makes sense to me as to why I’m having the issues I have. I’m so glad i decided to do the work for myself again with counseling. She is awesome at what she does

I'm just in the beginning stages of counseling and I'm glad I made the commitment to seek help through Betterhelp. My counselor Angela has shown up in all the ways you hope a counselor would which keeps pushing me. Angela has already helped me clear the fog and I'm excited for the road ahead.

Angela has been a pleasure with which to work. She is extremely knowledgeable about my issues and is always available for a listen and to offer insight. It is more like talking to a friend and isn’t intimidating. It is especially thoughtful that she respects my preference for communication which often differs depending on the time and situation. Also, she offers to provide worksheets, readings, and many other forms of materials that prove helpful which she offers only upon ask, without pressure. I continue to look forward to sessions with Angela and highly recommend.
