About me


I am a Licensed Professional Counselor licensed in Michigan with over 10 years of experience working as a trauma counselor and creativity coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, grief and LGBT. I also helped many people who have experienced physical, including sexual, trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and person centered counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

She has consistently been insightful and supportive. I think it is safe to say she is the best therapist I've ever had.

Written on Jan 03, 2024 after therapy with Angela for 4 years and 10 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, anger management, and coping with life changes

Angela has helped me navigate through a difficult 5 year relationship break up. She is professional and offers great insight about toxic relationship behaviours and counsels you though your unique problems. Angela has helped me learn from my past relationship, heal along the journey and has got me excited to prepare ahead for the future. I would highly recommend Angela to anyone needing therapy.
