Angela has nearly twenty years of experience in mental health counseling. She offers services ranging from individual therapy to skills training and coaching, group therapy, family therapy, parenting education, and life coaching. Angela also provides Supervision for LPC Interns pursuing full licensure in Texas. Angela considers herself an integrative and holistic practitioner with a solid foundation in a person-centered approach to mental wellness. Although intensively trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), she has received training in a wide variety of treatment approaches, including Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy, Existentialism, Prolonged Exposure Therapy, Mindfulness, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
Angela's population is primarily adults with diagnoses ranging from depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders to post-traumatic stress disorder, postpartum depression, addictions, and personality disorders. Her experiences are vast, as she has provided services in multiple settings including detention centers, residential facilities, and in private practice since 2011.
Angela is passionate about helping individuals with complex trauma and is particularly passionate about the mind-body connection and the use of ketamine to enhance healing.
Angela spends her free time investing in her own mental and physical health through weightlifting and riding her Peloton, meditation, connecting with nature through hiking and gardening, caring for her animals, and participating in her own EMDR-KAP therapy.
Angela has a miniature dachshund, two dachshund mix rescues and a Belgian Malinois, all of whom are her best buddies and take up much of her time!
Angela's person-centered approach to mental health care is dynamic and integrative. Although trained in DBT and EMDR, she pulls from other therapies/techniques based on the particular needs of her client. Angela believes that the core of counseling is built on a solid foundation consisting of a trusting, safe, and authentic relationship with your therapist. She believes in treating the entire person, not just a diagnosis; therefore, she incorporates nutrition coaching, meditation practice, and physical movement as part of treatment planning.
Angela also draws from Person-Centered Theory, Family Systems Theories, Humanistic-Existentialism, and Transpersonal Theories.
Angela's clients learn mindfulness and meditation, holistic self-care, and self-advocacy skills, and there remains a consistent focus on making meaning, developing a life worth living, and learning to transcend suffering.
Telemental health is an effective, efficient option for mental health counseling. The use of videoconferencing technology allows clients to have access to care regardless of their location, time constraints and any privacy concerns about visiting a therapy clinic. Your journey to wellness and access to your therapist is just one click away!
Life and Wellness Coaching
Bringing it all together for Optimal Wellness
Angela has spent the last 17 years developing relationships with individuals seeking to improve their quality of life. Although trained as a clinical counselor, Angela ascribes to a holistic approach to healing and believes that balancing movement with stillness and incorporating nourishing foods into your diet are vital to overall wellness. Her own journey with wellness involved understanding the impact of these factors on autoimmune diseases, as she was diagnosed with three autoimmune conditions in the last 10 years. Her desire to understand natural healing led to extensive training, research, and understanding in the role of nutrition and movement in our lives. Additionally, Angela is a former competitor and spends her free time lifting weights, running, cycling, and practicing a structured approach to eating so her body can function at an optimal level. She brings all of her experience and training to her practice and works collaboratively with you to develop a plan tailored to your level of understanding, flexibility, and overall goals.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy
DBT is an evidence-based psychotherapy rooted in cognitive behavior therapy. Dialectics is the premise that two opposing ideas can exist and be true at the same time. Clients learn to adapt behavior while cognitively integrating the practice of dialectics. Evidence reflects that DBT is useful in treating individuals with difficulty managing emotions and other self-destructive behaviors, such as eating disorders and substance abuse, personality disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The mindfulness component of DBT integrates meditation practice, which has been shown useful in treating a variety of diagnosis.
Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy
Angela is a certified Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapist partnered with Journey Clinical.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, "Currently, ketamine is the only legal psychedelic medicine available to mental health providers for the treatment of emotional suffering. Over the past several years, ketamine has come into psychiatric use as an intervention for treatment resistant depression (TRD). Ketamine can benefit patients with a wide variety of diagnoses when administered with psychotherapy and using its psychedelic properties. Its proven safety over decades of use makes it ideal for office and supervised at-home use. The unique experience that ketamine facilitates with its biological, experiential, and psychological impacts has been tailored to optimize office-based treatment evolving into a method that we call Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP)."
