Angela is passionate about the dissemination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. She takes a collaborative approach with her clients and gently guides her clients (and their parents) to gain an understanding of their distress in a way that will help them take the steps to move towards their treatment goals. Angela will engage in goal-oriented treatment to help her clients gain knowledge about where their distress comes from, learn clear and logical interventions that can be implemented independently and help her clients learn how to be their own therapist.
