Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)
Angela earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Applied Psychology from Hodges University in 2012. Then completed a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling also at Hodges University and became a Nationally Certified Counselor in 2015. She obtained an additional certification as a Master’s Level Addiction Professional and subsequently her license in the State of Florida as a Clinical Mental Health Counselor.
Angela has been working in the mental health field for many years treating children, adolescents, adults, couples and families. She has extensive experience providing therapy and support to those struggling with psychological, emotional, behavioral, and interpersonal difficulties. Her background in mental health and specialty in treatment for addictions (MCAP) enables her to provide comprehensive care to not only those who suffer from addictions, but also those who have concerns related to anxiety, depression, PTSD, ADHD, relationships, domestic violence, and life transitions.
Her counseling style is non-judgmental, interactive, and empathetic. She is dedicated to provide a safe, warm, and supportive atmosphere to promote positive change. Her therapeutic approach includes cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused, person centered, and motivational interviewing. Although, other treatment approaches are used depending on the person and condition. Angela helps clients to discover and use the power of their own inner strengths to achieve a positive life transformation. She develops the treatment plan based on the person’s individual goals and needs and promotes a collaborative work between therapist and client to reach those goals. She integrates holistic principles (mind, body, and spirit) to help clients to accomplish their goals and develop their full potential. Angela believes that personal grow and a fulfilling life is possible if you heal your whole self.
