Angela Abide M.Ed., LPC

Therapist

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor trained in Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy who teaches clients to practice Self-led mediation as a way to manage: their minds and emotions, their relationships with others, and their interactions in the world. I believe that everyone has what they need and work with my clients to help them discover how to be true to themselves and how to become a great Self-manager.

Therapist

I have a message for those who feel afflicted with a running tape of disturbing thoughts, or who are stuck on the same repetitive behaviors, or who are plagued with fears that others deem irrational: I can help. My approach is to draw from many theories depending on the client’s unique challenges and personality.
