Angel helps adult women identify and process past experiences of trauma so they can better understand and cope with their emotions. Angel is also passionate about helping you determine whether or not your past trauma experiences are linked to challenges in your relationships. Through the therapy process, Angel will work with you to build resilience, manage triggers, and develop healthy coping mechanisms so that you can experience emotional healing and more meaningful connections with others.
Angel believes that you have the innate ability to grow and heal, especially when you have a trusting connection in therapy. Sessions with Angel will feel informal, non-judgmental, and collaborative. Together you’ll establish goals and develop a personalized therapy plan. Angel encourages open lines of communication and welcomes feedback. She believes that restructuring your journey may be needed at times, and is willing to make these adjustments with you. Angel encourages mindfulness as a way to better regulate emotions and is always willing to offer additional tools to support you.
Outside of sessions, Angel can be found spending time with her two kiddos. Together they enjoy camping, hiking, playing board games, and baking. As a busy mother and wife, Angel makes sure to focus on her own mental health. She practices self-care by going out with friends, watching thriller movies, going to the gym, and taking nature walks.
