Hi and congratulations on being open enough to recognize you need support and brave enough to seek it. That's the hardest part of this journey.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in Florida and a National Certified Counselor (NCC). I have worked outpatient, school, and crisis stabilization settings with individuals, families, and couples. I've helped clients from 5 years of age and older. You can see my areas of specialty by checking out my profile. I understand that family structures and dynamics can be difficult to manage, but lay the framework for the rest of a person's life. That's why I'm so passionate about working with teens and families.
My counseling style is person-centered, caring, and accepting. I'm a military veteran, spouse and mother of 2. My travels have given me an understanding that though we come from different places (location or upbringing) we still have the same drives and deserve the same respect and compassion. This is why I don't believe in labels or judging. Just helping others to achieve their goals.
My clinical approach combines cognitive-behavioral interventions with narrative therapy. I believe the words we use and stories we tell ourselves drive how we perceive and interact with the world. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment to meet your specific needs. I will always strive to maintain a safe space for you, where you feel comfortable being you truest self. My intention is to be sensitive to your needs and will work to support you in any way that I can.
Congratulations again on taking the first step to a more balanced, healthy, and happy life. This journey is about finding ways to live the life you want. I look forward to working with you!

I consider myself very fortunate to have been matched with Angela. She has helped me greatly over the last 5 months. Angela is attentive and a great listener, she has taught me to think about my feelings and work on myself. I am very lucky to be able to speak with her.
Angela has been a wonderful counselor for our daughter. She is easy to talk to, she is empathetic, and she offers support and understanding.
Angela is the best!!! Always there to listen and give advice on whatever my problems are. Wish I had more money so I could continue this longer. Never changed myself for the better more than I have the past 3 months with her
My interactions with Angela have been nothing short of LIFECHANGING! I have seen many therapists in my life, like many others, It has been difficult to find a therapist that I can trust. Thank you to teen counseling for creating a platform that facilitates these interactions so well. I love it there are so many ways I get to direct with my therapist. Being able to text my therapist if I’m having a bad day, schedule appointments with ease, and use supports like journaling on the app. Thank you!
I've made several breakthroughs with Angela! She is amazing and listens well and has a plan laid out for what I needed. She has a comforting disposition and I always feel better after our sessions! Would absolutely recommend!
She is amazing! I feel heard, validated and I am working through some of my childhood traumas. She has taught me coping mechanisms to deal with anxiety and anger.
She listens & offers constructive advice for both my husband and myself when we have trouble communicating our needs, wants etc.
Angela is a phenomenal therapist who really takes the time to not just walk through what you are feeling, but strategize ways to cope with the emotions, anxiety, and feelings.
She really listens
I’ve had a couple weeks with Angela and I’ve never been so low in my life when I started. I will continue to use teen counseling with my helpful Angela. She’s very kind and very personable which is very helpful, it doesn’t make me feel overwhelmed and pressured. I leave our sessions or chats feeling actually happy and able to try the techniques that she’s recommended. Thank you Angela for your help so far. ♥️
I’m so happy that I matched with Angela. I was so nervous at first but she is super easy to talk to, super helpful and we laugh together a lot. She also asks the tough questions and gets me to think about things more that I normally wouldn’t. I’m super happy with teen counseling and Angela. It’s made my therapy journey amazing so far!
She is great, she got right to the root of the issue and offered perspective I hadn’t considered before. I’m looking forward to continuing working with her.
