I am a licensed mental health counselor currently practicing in upstate New York. I have been working for the past nine years assisting individuals, couples, and families who have a wide range of challenges including: schizophrenia, bipolar, depression, anxiety, trauma, marriage, parenting, grief, addiction, LGBTQ+, as well as others. My goal is to provide a nonjudgmental space for individuals to be able to share their thoughts and feelings about what brought them to counseling and work on whatever specific goals they may have. My own life experiences dealing with grief and loss, marriage and divorce, parenting , anxiety, depression, as well as family members with mental health and addiction issues, have enabled me to have a deeper understanding of individuals who are dealing with some of these challenges . I truly love being a counselor, and look forward to working with you on any challenges you may be facing in your life.

Angela Williams has done wonders for me. She truly listens and helps me to figure out what’s really bothering me and what I can do about it. She gives me great feedback. She is kind and understanding, and she rocks.

I've met with Angela three times and already she's made a profound impact on me. I really enjoy meeting with her and having our weekly discussions. She's a great listener and action oriented and is truly interested in helping her clients solve issues that are distressing.

Angela is personable and kind, very approachable. I've tried other therapists in the past but she is the first person I have felt comfortable enough to open up with.

Working with Angela is fantastic! She listens, asks how I would have said things differently if I had the chance and provides feedback.

I've only had two sessions with Angela and I'm already feeling a connection forming between us. I feel safe opening up about sensitive topics such as body image and weight with her and feel already like I can trust her. I tend to be very wary in the first few sessions but Angela is helping me break down those barriers and be more vulnerable so I can get the most out of therapy as I possibly can. Thank you Angela!
