About Me

In the blink of an eye, the world has changed overnight. You may be struggling with insomnia or moods that upset you and that are damaging your intimate, family, and peer relationships. Recent changes in society and your living situation may have triggered life transitions which have sorely stretched your ability to cope. You may feel stuck in a repetitive cycle, making the same mistakes over and over without understanding why and feeling powerless to make productive and positive changes. Maybe you feel traumatized or that choice has been taken from you and you are grasping at regaining some semblance of normalcy in your life.

Don't despair! You are not a lone; and, help is available! Together, we'll uncover, identify, and support your inner strengths and help you achieve your goals. We'll work eclectically, utilizing approaches such as Integrative/Holistic, Humanistic, CBT, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Mindfulness-Based CT, and others to help you manifest the changes you desire.

I have been a social worker for more than 12 years and have experience working with people from all different backgrounds who are struggling with a wide variety of challenges. Much of my experience has been working with people who are struggling with depression, anxiety, and women's issues. The feedback I receive from clients is that they find me to be caring and nonjudgmental, and they appreciate that I am honest and direct with them.

I can interact with you in whatever manner you are most comfortable. I find it helpful to participate in weekly video sessions so that we can get to know each other better. But I am also available to you via phone and text if that is more comfortable for you. My available live session hours are mainly on Fridays, but I check messages at least twice during each weekday.

I know how hard it can be to find a counselor who you feel a connection with and I would be honored to work with you through this stage of your life.

You don't have to face this a lone. I'm here to help. Show me what your experience is through your eyes. I am here to listen non-judgmentally and to understand your thoughts, feelings, and priorities. I care.

Written by D.E. on Nov 19, 2020 after counseling with Angelina for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and family conflicts

Angelina is very kind and puts herself in my shoes. She understands my concerns and what I sometimes feel are complicated situations. I feel very lucky to have her as a lifeline when I feel like I don’t know how to deal with other certain situations in my life. She’s wonderful!

Angelina is a very thoughtful and patient therapist. She's done a lot to help me both unravel patterns in my life and relationships with people but also given me tools to start to think through these patterns independently. Angelina is very perceptive to my emotions and can sense when certain areas of my life take me to an emotion I need to further explore. I'm very grateful I've found the right therapist!

Angelina has been a very good fit for me. She can decipher my concerns and respond in a way that helps me view situations from a better perspective. She also provides different tools and reminders, I am glad we have been partnered up as I work through counseling!

She is the best and I've been feeling so much better from talking with her! I would definitely recommend her to another person. Having somebody validate your feelings is really important and she does a great job of that.
