I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 14 years of clinical experience. I have worked with individuals of all ages with a focus on depression, anxiety, career challenges, relationship issues, parenting, and aging/life transitions. I am also trained in Trauma-Focused CBT. In these scary times, we are all faced with unprecedented life stressors and emotions. Support and deeper understanding of ourselves can help one cope with the feelings and changes that come with this journey. And having the tools to cope with whatever life brings us can be a major benefit of counseling.
I believe the first step to healing/treating any emotional issue or life stressor is to be heard and understood. My counseling style is warm and interactive but also challenging. I believe in treating all with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines empathy with solution focused, psychodynamic counseling. I will tailor our discussions and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Counseling is a partnership and I want to support you in the way that best suits you.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Angelina DeSantis. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Angelina is the reason why therapy works. She is attentive, honest, kind, & consistently puts genuine intention into her work. Working with her has been priceless.
She was extremely helpful in each of my concerns. I would recommend her to anyone!
i love her !!!
Angelina is great. She’s very responsive and understanding. She always makes her schedule work with mine. I was really struggling with work and she encouraged me to seek out a new career. It’s been really and stressful but she’s been right there to guide me the entire way. We had a miscommunication once but she picked up on it and worked really hard to work out with me. She’s very understanding and kind.
I switched over to Angelina and I feel that she is the right person at this point if my healing journey!
Shes Amazing give her a raise.
Angelina is such a lovely person. It was my first time getting counseling and I felt very comfortable talking to her. We only talked by text and she was very helpful and always answered me on a short time. I feel very supported by her.
Angelina has made not only my first experience with BetterHelp amazing, but my first experience with therapy all together a positive one. She’s a great listener and will always take the time to respond to messages thoroughly. Very pleased with the progress I’ve already made and I look forward to continuing to work with Angelina!
Angelina DeSantis was absolute amazing.
I have struggled with very specific and strange issues I’d thought I’d never get over. These issues are not overnight fixes but Angelina did help make a massive dent and has set me on the right path to solve these issues and make myself feel better with it in the process
She is the absolute best! I have been with her for almost a year now and she has helped me tremendously.
I love this woman ! She’s very wise and intuitive, and very knowledgeable
Thanks again for all the advice, much appreciated.
Angelina has helped me work through my anxiety and stress, and our sessions have taken a weight off of my shoulders. Since starting better help with Angelina as my therapist, I have actively seen a positive change in myself and my life.
she's a very caring person to all my concerns
Angelina has been the best counselor I have ever had. She appeared in the most difficult point of my life, and she has genuinely cared and done her best to empathyze with me no matter how unusual my current situation is.
I visited several other therapists before in my own country, but Angelina is the person who has connected with me the most... and at the point in which it is the hardest to do so.
It was one of my first times doing long term therapy. Angelina was so kind , understanding and professional and I feel so much better after working for several weeks with her
My first time in therapy. Angelina was very patient and understanding and allowed me to express myself without judgement
Angelina is insightful and patient. She seems empathetic and kind, but also clear and firm. Her sessions always end with actionable goals and she is willing to move the session toward relevant concerns if need be. She's been a great support!
Angelina is so kind and supportive. She responds quickly and thoughtfully to my notes and finds solutions to problems I never would have come up with myself. My head feels clearer after a session with her. Thanks so much, Angelina!
Angelina is simply brilliant!!! As well as being very knowledgeable, professional and supportive, Angelina is really easy to talk to and down to earth. This has been my most positive therapeutic experience to date and I am already noticing improvements in my thought processes and well-being.
