My passion roots in helping individuals with depression, anxiety, trauma/PTSD and relationship issues.
Struggling with self esteem, letting go, or emotional regulation? Do you have relationship difficulties or feel unsupported, or stuck? Let's Talk! Conventionality has never been my approach to life and my therapeutic approach is no different. If you're looking for a traditional talk therapist who sees you week to week without any real progress, then I'm not the therapist for you. If you're not ready to have difficult conversations, and do the work to get to the root of the issues, then I am not the therapist for you. I am dedicated to getting real results , true healing, and doing the work needed to help you get to your best self.

Angela has experience working with individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship conflict, and more.
Angela believes it takes a great deal of courage to seek professional help and even more courage to implement change that is needed. There is such a huge stigma set upon therapy and therefore individuals tend to suffer in silence. Angela believes within her session with her clients, she creates a safe space and introduces her policy of confidentiality. She believes you do not have to suffer any longer. There is no longer a need to feel the trepidation of counseling. If you are ready to take the next steps to begin living a more fulfilling lifestyle, Angela would love to help navigate this most important decision with you.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Upper Marlboro. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
