Licensed Professional Counselor, Mediator
Angela has been a practicing psychotherapist since 2004. She is the founder of Family Tree Counseling, and a member of the Society for Police and Criminal Psychology. Angela is a mediator for both family and business matters, and a collaborative communications professional in the collaborative law process.
Her background includes general counseling, school counseling, drug and alcohol rehabilitation, work with court mandated individuals, and families with a member with special needs. She takes her counseling skills into mediations and collaborative situations. As a collaborative communications professional, Angela maintains a neutral stance in order to facilitate better communication between those involved in the case. Angela's goal with every case is to help clients reach a reasonable solution, while maintaining dignity and general well-being. Her approach is compassionate and nonjudgemental, yet direct. The relationships she builds with clients are the product of empathy, and strong listening skills.
