Do you find yourself struggling to cope with frequent anxiety and worries? Do you spend time focused on your obsessions, then find yourself doing compulsions to try and reduce your levels of distress? Do you notice yourself lacking motivation, and being unsure what to do to get better?
Angelica works with teens (12 to 18 years old) and adults who are struggling with depression, anxiety, OCD and OCD related disorders, trauma, life transitions, relationship challenges and substance abuse. She views the therapeutic relationship as a partnership, and focuses on each individual’s strengths, so they can begin to see real sustained change in their lives.
Angelica is highly skilled in implementing evidence-based practices, including Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT.) She has worked in mental healthcare for many years, and is credentialed as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.
Throughout her career in the mental health field, she has provided therapy to children, teens and adults. From these experiences, she has come to understand the challenges each phase of life presents, and how important it is to feel seen and understood. In therapy sessions, she shows up as her authentic self, and strives to provide a compassionate and empowering environment, so that her clients can do the same.
In her spare time, Angelica enjoys traveling and spending time with loved ones. As a Colorado native, she loves to get outside as much as possible, and make the most out of everything our incredible state has to offer.
