About Me

Are you struggling with some aspect of your life? Do you feel as if you are missing something, but are unsure of what? Are you finding it difficult to get through the day without feeling anxious? Sometimes stress can take over your life and make you feel lost and alone. I want to help break habits, change harmful routines and help build your confidence.

I have over 10 years of experience helping others. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the states of West Virginia and Pennsylvania. I have had the privilege of serving individuals and families struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship issues and LGBT struggles. Through empathetic listening, non-judgmental encouragement and self-exploration, we can work though anything. My therapeutic approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and client-centered counseling. Identifying strengths and coping techniques is a vital part of the therapy process; however, I personalize and tailor each dialogue and treatment plan to meet clients' particular needs.

I truly value each individual therapeutic relationship and fully empathize with different emotions a client may experience throughout treatment. With additional support, I believe each individual has the ability to overcome struggles and to better identify strengths they already possess.

I look forward to working with you!

Angelina is incredibly supportive and flexible to my counseling needs. My time with her has become an important part of my week, and she's an excellent listener with an amazing ability to ask tough questions in a very empathic way.

Angelina is great. She listens and really understands the day to day struggles that I'm going through. I've had a pretty rough couple of months with some things in my life and since I've started working with her she's given me additional perspective on my choices and how to deal with my issues in a constructive manner.

I think Angelina is fantastic! She pushes me to figure out my own answers in a very nurturing non-judgmental conversation. I have nothing but great things to say about her and BetterHelp in general.

She is helping me more than she knows.

Angelina was very quick to understand some of my issues. She responded very quickly, elegantly and in depth. Her responses help me to really elucidate some of the issues going through my head and definitely encouraged me to talk further and engage in a very protective and safe environment. I would highly recommend her and hope I will be able to talk to her again soon. Her obvious intelligence and empathy and ability to gauge problems being expressed has been extremely helpful so far; so I hope to continue talking!
