About Me

Hello, my Name is Angela and I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT) and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of Florida. I have been doing counseling for 17+ years. Fifteen of those seventeen years I spent working in a public high school as a TRUST Counselor/Crisis Counselor. Before I became a counselor, I was a high school music teacher for 20 years. I thoroughly enjoyed work with high school students. High school students are always interesting, never boring.

When I’m working with high school students, I work very hard at listening to what you have to say and truly hearing you. You often have excellent ideas about the changes you want to make for yourself. You are brave and willing to work on things that are important to you. You are open to new ideas and dare to try new things. Sometimes looking at what’s really going on and our feelings about that can be a little scary, but even so, you carefully look at the situations and things that you know will help you and little by little, you move toward your goals.

The therapeutic approach I use most often is Solution Focused, so it’s a very positive approach. I help you focus on the things that you are already doing which are working for you. Then we look at what you would like to change and come up with things you can tweak, so they will work better for you. You determine the direction of your therapy, while I come alongside you to support you and help you process your ideas and feelings.

Congratulations! You’ve already taken the most difficult step of looking at this site to check it out, because you’re ready to take action to help yourself deal with your present situation and the challenges you face.

I believe I can help. Feel free to contact me and let’s see how we can work together.
