Hello! I’m Angela
I’m so glad you’re here. It’s clear that you’re looking to make a change in your life. It’s my privilege to partner with people, like you, on their journey.
You’re new beginning may be due to having a new baby.
You’re new beginning may be due to a loss.
You’re new beginning may be the seed of desire to live a new way. The way you’re living and the way you’re feeling, aren’t satisfying to you anymore.
My specialty is working with postpartum women who are experiencing difficulty transitioning into motherhood, particularly if they’ve had a baby in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. My clients come to me for help when they are feeling overwhelmed by excessive worrying, obsessive thoughts, feelings of sadness, and lack of support.
I am here to support you through this transition. You can expect a warm, safe, and supportive environment as we work together to define and achieve your goals for a healthy, prosperous life.
If you are interested in my services please give us a call to talk more about if I would be a good fit for you or you can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
My main therapy approach is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, with an emphasis on mindfulness. CBT is a type of psychotherapy that is present focused, short-term, and solution oriented. CBT looks at the relationship between your thoughts, your feelings, and your behaviors. CBT first helps you identify your distressing thoughts and evaluate how realistic the thoughts are. Then you learn to change your unhelpful ways of thinking. When you think more realistically, you feel better.
CBT is a highly effective treatment method to reduce postpartum depression and anxiety. You will learn a “toolbox” of specific skills that can be used for the rest of your life.
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) has also become integral in my work with clients. Most often used for healing from trauma, I am seeing it benefit my clients with other issues as well.
I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) with many years of experience working with postpartum women and their families. In my free time I like to spend time in nature, do yoga, run, read, and spend time with friends, family, and our two cats.
