HI, I'M ANGELA!
I'm so glad you are taking the time to learn about me and what I have to offer you.
My practice follows attachment-oriented psychotherapy with an integration of intimacy and sexual health for couples and individuals.
I use evidenced-based models, clinical consultation, continuing education, and clinical processing groups to ensure that I am providing my clients with the best psychotherapeutic treatment possible.
I am a mother of three and have lived in Utah, Washington, California, Oregon, and now Texas. I am thrilled to now call Austin my home and can't wait to cheer on Austin FC at Q2 stadium!
Lastly, scroll down and meet Mr. Sweenie Todd, my beloved little Dachshund. He's not ready yet to join me in the therapy office...but I'm looking into it.
COUNSELING WITH ANGELA
Couples counseling and relationship issues make up the majority of my practice. The couples I work with tend to have encountered difficulties in their relationship stemming from negative communication and relational cycles, or are experiencing distress due to trust breeches or betrayals in the relationship.
I also have specialities in perinatal/postpartum work for women and couples who are experiencing adjustment distress, mental and emotional health issues, and stress.
Women who experience pain with sex, loss of libido, or prior sexual trauma that is currently negatively influencing their relationship also fall under my areas of specialization.
Clients who work best with my style tend to have had previous therapy, are in current individual therapy, or are therapists themselves.
