Schedule a Consult Today!
I offer free, no pressure, 15-minute consultations. Let’s chat first before deciding to schedule your first therapy appointment. I often tell my clients, my role isn’t to be your counselor. My role is to promote your mental wellness and if that means being your counselor or finding a counselor who would be a best fit for you then I more than happy to do so. Stepping into the therapeutic process can bring up a lot of unsure or anxious feelings. Let me help you navigate those first steps! Call or text to set up your consultation.
You are welcome to schedule your appointment without a consultation.
"Angel is an easy person to talk to and I always feel like she cares about how I am doing. She has been a safe place to turn when life gets challenging and has helped me overcome my issues of low self-worth. Thanks to her, I finally found the confidence to leave an abusive relationship and move on to something I deserve."
