Greetings. Thank you for considering counseling and taking time to learn about my work. I have completed advance academic preparation (MA, and PhD) in counseling and am licensed to practice independently as a counselor in the state of Missouri (USA). I have over 20 years full time experience providing direct counseling service to clients (from children to adults, couples, and families). My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. I tend to use humanistic/person centered, strengths based, learning/solution focused, and multicultural approaches in my work. More importantly, I strive to understand my clients’ concerns, convey empathy, provide helpful feedback, teach needed skills and build hope.
Over the years, my clients have shown up to counseling with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, ADHD, social and gender identity issues, trauma and emotional abuse, life and work transition stressors, relationship difficulties, parent and child relationship discord, couples communication, career or occupational difficulties, school (high school, college, professional school) challenges and multicultural concerns.
I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards making 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!

Dr. Pangelinan is great at listening with empathy, providing his feedback and viewpoint to create a space for me to reflect and learn, and following up with me on how I am doing. He is also very generous with his time on responding to my messages between sessions. I feel that he makes me a priority, and he wants to help. I feel acknowledged being who I am, and he motivates me tremendously to want to work on how to be less stuck with my situation and feel I can branch out to try new things that can make me feel more confident.
