My belief in the resilience of the human spirit inspired me to become a professional counselor 20 years ago. I have clinical experience in every level of behavioral healthcare and I have advanced training and practice in understanding how the early experience of trauma impacts a developing child’s brain. I am motivated by the power of trauma sensitive treatment to assist my clients in growth and healing.
My general approach to therapy is one of a partnership of experts. No one has more expertise than you do on your own experience. I have training and expertise that I can offer to hopefully deepen your understanding, provide new perspectives, and facilitate change. Most importantly, it's my privilege and commitment to provide an environment of unconditional acceptance and respect for your thoughts and values. I am comfortable with any pace of therapy and I believe that I should be pushing you a little bit harder than you are pushing yourself—pushing you forward, never pushing you down.
I have extensive experience in working with families formed from adoption and foster care. I am affirming of all sexual and gender identities, all faiths and all religions. I utilize several clinical modalities including Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Dialectical Behavior therapy, Trust-Based Relational Intervention therapy, Solution-Focused therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.
I enjoy counseling with adults, couples, families, and children. I have extensive experience in crisis intervention and crisis stabilization and am comfortable supporting individuals with symptoms related to depression, anxiety, trauma, anger management, difficulty in relationships, parenting, career/employment stress, substance use and stress management.
I am passionate about connecting with vulnerable individuals in our community to offer hope and eliminating the stigma of illness and addiction.

Angie is the best therapist I’ve ever had and could ever imagine. I wish everyone could work with Angie, but I also don’t want to tell anyone about her so that I always get a session time. My life has improved so much in less than a year with her, compared to a year and a half with very little improvement with my last therapist. I’d rate her 1000/10.
