Hello! I’m Dr. Angel
Licensed Mental Health Counselor
My psychotherapy experience has focused on working with a variety of populations including community mental health, LGBTQ, crisis counseling, dependency, adoption, trauma, and psychological assessments. I am passionate in helping my patients reach their potential and find their purpose as she utilizes a strength-based approach for empowerment. My treatment is individualized for each patient’s needs and strengths and provide individual and family counseling to children, adolescents, adults, and families.
I also have a passion for research in which she is continually working on cutting edge research to contribute to the field of psychology. Her research includes topics such as: LGBTQ, religion, trauma, and mindfulness based practices. I’ve given professional presentations on a variety of mental health topics at such venues as: foster and adoption parent associations, Florida Dependency Conference, Social Work Conferences, as well as various community agencies across the state.
I am also a co-host and writer for a psychology/counseling based radio show Go-Yard (which means hitting the home runs in life) that airs weekly in the Tampa Bay market and is syndicated in other markets. I have been a part of Go-Yard since its inception for the four years now. My dynamic personality and depth of knowledge overflows into all the work I do.
My Approach & Values
I conduct self-improvement workshops on topics such as: parenting, parenting kids with special needs, self-value, goal-setting, communication, as well as a variety of topics. New workshops are always being developed and she provides mental health professional development courses for earning continuing education credits towards a Florida mental health license, marriage and family license, and social work license. My trainings are dynamic, experiential, and hands-on.
On my personal time, I love to read and write, travel to Caribbean destinations, and spend quality time with family and friends.
