Angela’s compassionate, laidback and playful qualities allow for a relaxed environment, which can sometimes even be fun! Angela specializes with children, and sees clients through early adulthood. Her patient and understanding demeanor aid her in the development of trusting relationships with both children and adults. Angela utilizes a strengths based perspective and partners with families to facilitate healthy development and healing.
Angela sees individuals, families, and groups. In working with younger children, research shows us that play therapy is the most effective treatment. Play therapy uses many types of therapeutic play including but not limited to: dramatic play, symbolic play, art technique and storytelling. As play is a child’s natural medium of communication, it is key in achieving healing and problem solving. With older children and adults, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a common modality used-and is also research driven.
Angela is proficient in several areas including:
- Sensory Integration Issues
- Blended Family support
- Disruptive Behaviors/School problems
- Life cycle transition support
Children live in a stressful world more so now than ever! Typically, parents don’t receive guidebooks on how to navigate through these stressors! Sometimes outside support is needed in order to provide the healing and recovery necessary to move forward. Angela will partner with her clients to determine how they can best reach their goals. She feels fortunate to be able to work with so many wonderful children and families, and loves to discover the unique resiliencies that lie within each of them!
