Angela is queer, Black-biracial, and first-generation
Angela is particularly interested in working with clients who have felt othered because of their identities. This includes being a person of color, queer, biracial, and any other fluid or shifting identities. She supports clients who are carrying the burden of anxiety, depression, and discrimination in response to their life experiences.
Healing and being well is a radical endeavor in a society that capitalizes on its people's passive acceptance and hopelessness. Connection is healing. Laughing is healing. Crying is healing. Authenticity is healing, and healing is resistance.
Angela’s approach to therapy is based on intersectional, feminist, and relational perspectives. She invites clients into a collaborative process of exploration, meaning-making, and change. It’s important to her that clients feel empowered to discover the way to their own peace and wellness. Angela integrates an awareness of oppressive systems while maintaining a connection to mindfulness and joy so that therapy itself can be a tool for liberation.

More about Angela
Angela has been practicing yoga for over 10 years and is still on the journey toward unconditional love, acceptance, and the perfect standing split. She finds it extremely satisfying to cross something off a hand-written to-do list and feels most peaceful when laying in the grass looking up at a full moon.
