Telemental health (HIPAA compliant video counseling) certification.
I believe that you’re the expert in your own life and already have the tools, you may just need someone to show you how the tools work. Using person centered, solution focused and cognitive behavioral therapies, I work with adults, children, and geriatrics in areas of pre-marital, marital, grief, life strategies, addiction and processing to change the way we do things. I believe in restoration of mind, peace, and spirit to improve the overall well-being of each person I work with.
Angela lives in central Arkansas with her husband and 3 children, who stay busy with sports, activities, and church. She co-leads groups in the White County area to assist with restoration to families who have been part of the addiction cycle to learn boundaries, what they are, how they work and how to enforce them. She strongly believes that the family unit has all been affected by a loved ones’ addiction and understands that the family frequently feels lost and unsure of how to move forward through their loved ones’ sobriety. She helps teach new methods of communication within families of those who have struggled with addiction so that the entire family can benefit from a new way of thinking, being, and moving forward.
Angela has a Master’s degree from John Brown University in Clinical Mental Health, studied speech pathology at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, and brings a unique understanding of how the mind and body work together and affect one another with not just what to communicate but how to communicate it most effectively. In her spare time, Angela is currently undergoing research for Tourette’s in children and how that affects academic and personal relationships with themselves and with others, anxiety and OCD in children with co-occurring diagnoses.
“I am willing and able to hold space while we process your story. I have a love for hearing the stories of others and have since I was a small child. I was always in the adult conversations, listening and absorbing all the things they said, while asking questions. I decided to channel that into a helping profession and switched my studies to those of helping others express and process their pasts, so that they could see their future differently. I’m so honored to be called to serve others in this way and look forward to working with people to create brighter, more functional and happier lives”
