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 through 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!

Written by K.A. on Jul 10, 2018 after counseling with Angelina for 1 year on issues concerning lgbt, relationship, intimacy-related, and anger

I’m actually kind of excited every now and then when BetterHelp asks me if I would fill out a survey for them. I always look forward to an opportunity to brag about Angelina. She has a way of making me figure things out for myself while just offering support and non-judgment. I know it sounds melodramatic, and I didn’t necessarily realize I needed saving, but this therapy and Angelina have saved me.

Angelina is wonderful. She really listens and cares about your problems rather than moving on super quickly to the next issue. I feel comfortable talking to her. She even makes me look at some of my problems and my thought process differently to make them seem not as big as I thought they were. I highly recommend Angelina. She's great at what she does.

Angelina is great. She really understands what I'm going though and relays it to me so I don't feel alone in my thoughts and feelings. Her understanding and caring for my situations really helps me to cope better and really evaluate what going through. She checks in on me if it's been a week or so and that feels great.

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.

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!
