Hello there! Let me first start by saying thank you and congratulations! You should pat yourself on the back for taking the initiative to becoming a better version of yourself. Admitting that you may need guidance is hard, but here you are taking steps towards mental clarity. For that, you should be very proud of yourself, as you have crossed one of the biggest hurdles.
My name is Angela, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Pennsylvania. I earned a masters degree in Clinical Psychology in 2013. My undergraduate degree is in Clinical/Counseling Psychology with a minor in Criminal Justice. I recently earned a School Counselor Certification to expand my horizon in the counseling field. For 8 years, I worked as a Psychology Services Specialist in a correctional setting (Virginia and Pennsylvania). In this setting, I worked closely with clients experiencing many issues in both individual and group settings. A lot of my time has been spent helping people manage depression, anxiety, crises, grief, trauma, substance abuse, thoughts of suicide and/or self-harm, family conflict, anger, sexuality, and identity issues. I have also been lucky to attend many trainings to strengthen my awareness in the field. I currently work as a School Counselor in a middle school and absolutely love it!
I take a very client-centered approach and try to be as eclectic as possible to best meet my clients' needs. It is important that we can build a rapport combined with mutual trust to make your therapeutic experience a powerful and helpful one. I really enjoy an integrative approach that uses both cognitive-behavioral and humanistic therapy methods. I am a strong believer in mindfulness and would love to provide clients with different worksheets and techniques that would be helpful in their daily lives. Self-care is extremely important, so I will certainly be encouraging that on the regular. In my spare time, spending time with family and friends, traveling, exploring nature, reading, or hanging with my dogs is where you will find me (REMEMBER: self-care is key)!!
Whether it be myself or another therapist you see fit, I absolutely hope you find what you were looking for on your journey. If I seem like someone who may fit your goals and needs, please feel free to reach out. I look forward to talking to you soon!
