Angela was in the 9th grade when she determined the path she would take to turn her passion for helping children into a reality. After working several years in outpatient clinics and hospital settings, it became her dream to open a family-owned private practice that reflected that same passion for helping others. In February 2012, that dream was realized, and Angela (with the help and support of her husband) developed a thriving practice with children, teens, and adults. It was later in 2016 when her husband, Eric, officially joined the practice. This is a family run private practice where dedication and quality care are demonstrated every day.
Both Eric and Angela have extensive training in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of a range of developmental and psychological issues. They are interested in identifying clients’ strengths in order to improve academic (or job) performance, develop positive coping skills or stress-management, strengthen parent-child bonds, build peer relationships, and improve self-esteem. They also integrate Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with other evidence-based modalities such as Family Systems Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), and Play Therapy. Psychological testing or Trauma-Focused-CBT are also utilized when appropriate.
