I am a Clinical Social Worker licensed in Georgia with many years working in the field of mental health. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, personality disorders and mood disorders. I have also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I enjoy working with couples who need assistance in learning new ways to communicate, to resolve conflict and to enrich their marital roles.

My counseling style is direct and solutions focused. You will be treated with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, in a non-judgmental and supportive environment. I specialize in helping communicates learn to communicate more effectively. My approach combines Trauma Focused Cognitive-Behavioral, Dialectal Behavioral, CBT-I, and Imagery Rehearsal for PTSD therapies.

Angie is literally the best. She is so encouraging but also knows how to gently put you in your place. She encourages such healthy communication and an outside perspective that has made all the difference. I love her!

She is the best at what she does. It's a warm, caring, non-judgmental atmosphere and you just love opening up to her.

My fiancé and I are blessed to be able to match with Mrs. Angie. She is so sweet and has helped us a lot already. Easy to talk to and very understandable. She helps us through our situations and also gives us more activities to work towards building our relationship!
