About Angela’s Practice:
As a person who loves being creative and has a young spirit, I find that I can easily connect with kids and teens. I also really enjoy working with adults. Using what I know from proven treatments and finding innovative and personalized applications to find change is something that I enjoy immensely. I am encouraging and always find ways to make space for your feelings and thoughts while also moving towards treatment goals.
These difficult feelings that you or your child are experiencing can be temporary. I truly believe in the benefit that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has in helping you to find the way out of the struggle. I see it work regularly and love sharing what I know so you can benefit too. I offer individual sessions that include parent-coaching so you know how to help your child continue their growth outside of sessions.
My dedication to learning everything I can about providing evidence-based therapy has led to me to some amazing opportunities. One of the most valuable includes attending multiple trainings by Judith Beck and the ‘father of CBT’, Aaron T. Beck. I have worked hard to become Certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy by the Academy of Cognitive Therapy (ACT). I am also honored to be a Certified Trainer and Consultant through ACT as well. I have experience supervising therapists in learning CBT, am a member of the credentialing committee for the Academy of Cognitive Therapy that certifies other therapists in CBT, and I have provided training on behalf of ACT. I continue to look for ways to advance my learning so I can best help you meet your goals.
