By Angela | January 4, 2021

It’s that time of year that everyone’s on fire with setting intentions! “I will love myself more.”  “I will exercise more.” “I will eat healthier.”  I don’t know about you, but I’ve always found that any attempts at self-discipline later turn into an unkind voice when I don’t show up in the way I’d wanted to.   So these days I ask myself, am I banishing other…

How Long Does Therapy Take?

By Angela | December 11, 2020

Am I a Culturally Competent Therapist? You Tell Me!

By Angela | December 4, 2020

I also practice in a person-centered way so that inherently comes with the gentleness of following rather…
