Hi! I’m Angele.
I’m an Associate MFT and Associate PCC. These labels are important because they indicate that my education and training have provided me with the skills necessary to assist with mental health concerns of all types. What’s more important, however, as you search for guidance and relief from life’s challenges, is the relationship we will build.
Studies indicate that the relationship you develop with your therapist is the most influential factor for a successful outcome. My experiences inform my temperament and presence in the room and allow you to get to know me as much – or as little – as you require to build a trusting bond and develop deeper opportunities for connection and healing.
As a child I was afraid of everything. My fears manifested most distinctly as social anxiety and held me back from many of life’s adventures. Today, after years of exploration and hard work to understand myself through my upbringing and my environment, I value most those who saw in me – and helped me to access – strengths I didn’t know I possessed.
We all want to be seen, to be heard and validated for our personal experiences. We want someone who will listen and be present without judgment or advice. With non-judgmental support and encouragement, I have overcome the extremities of social fear, and I continue my journey with untold openness and acceptance to assist you in your journey to do the same.
As a life-long feminist, an avid reader of literature, and a martial artist, I have experienced for myself the transformation of a shifting perspective to access an enhanced version of myself. Through my background in corporate, creative, and entrepreneurial life pursuits, I have seen and experienced how people can grow and develop balance and security during difficult times.
Along with the list provided of my specialties, I am also a Certified Dementia Practitioner (CDP) and have extensive knowledge of the unique experiences of older adults and their families. My experience is personal and professional, spans the course of the past decade, and includes caregiving, concerns with grief and mortality, and clinical support for those experiencing memory loss and the families that care for them.
My therapeutic approach is practical and direct. I begin with a Person-Centered, strengths-based outlook adapting to your needs and together we can examine what is important in your everyday life as we build upon your strengths to navigate life’s challenges.
