Ange relies on a non-judgmental, direct, and kind approach in her aim to understand your unique experience in this world. She values the importance of working collaboratively with her clients where your thoughts, feelings and questions will be welcomed, encouraged, and attentively explored. While adhering and upholding a high standard of consistency and structure in her practice, she is also known to differentiate her approach depending on each client’s wants and needs. Therapy is both challenging and exciting. Ange finds a lot of hope in trusting that the problems we experience in life are not random. She finds even more promise in knowing this journey of finding our voice is one we don’t have to go through alone.
Ange is a dually licensed psychotherapist (LMFT) in the states of Minnesota and California. After flailing about for most of her 20’s and surviving a catastrophic bicycle accident, she redirected her wayward path and obtained her master’s degree in clinical psychology with a specialization in trauma-informed care from Antioch University, Los Angeles.
Ange is fascinated by and often incorporates into her work user-friendly, relatable theories of attachment style, internal family systems, and the cognitive triad all encompassed through a palatable, psychodynamic lens. Her prior clinical experience includes school-based therapy and social work with underserved teens and their families, conducting individual, group and family therapy in residential adolescent treatment, LGBTQ+ suicide prevention crisis counseling, and working with young adults in private practice. You could say grounding one’s journey of ‘flailing’ has become quite her specialty.
Ange’s life experience includes but not limited to adopting feral kittens and rare houseplants, practicing yoga, making gazpacho, listening to ridiculous and relatable podcasts about the human experience, walking the lakes with loved ones, and selectively seeing live music.
