She was quick to get me out of my head and reframe my experiences. So far it’s going very well with her after two sessions. She has great energy and has been accommodating to see me early in the morning.

I was a little skeptical about therapy because I’ve done therapy before and didn’t seem like the therapist and I were on the same page. I’m very happy that I have Angie as a therapist because we’re just on the same page and I am finally very comfortable talking to a professional. Highly recommend

Angie is so supportive and kind, but also to the point and no-nonsense. She helps me identify my thoughts and feelings, even the ones I wasn't aware that I had! I feel so privileged to have her as my therapist.
