I went to Angela on the recommendation of some of her colleagues for assistance on a specific behavioral issue that was troubling me. I received what I was seeking, but I also quickly found that she was helpful on a broad array of subjects. She listened carefully, supplying gentle guidance and insight with consistent good cheer and compassion. I found her able to deploy subtle wisdom or hard science as the situation (or I) required. Her skills and professionalism, anchored in a very human sense of kindness, helped me find the inner resources to manage and resolve the issues that confronted me.
Nick and my relationship had been on the decline for some time. Neither of us were enjoying the company of the other and when the arguing and tension became too much, we sought out help. Dr. Huebner proved to be a god-send. She equipped us with tools and strategies needed to communicate and express our concerns in a respectful and kind way. We never felt that she took a side and both felt equal amounts of support and encouragement. This was not a quick-fix as we still use these tools today and are happier than ever. Dr. Huebner saved our marriage!
It’s surprisingly difficult to find a therapist who can manage empathy, insight, connection, structure and science in one session, but Angela Huebner does all this and more. She pushes you to explore your truths in a safe, if still challenging, environment. We both feel equally at ease with her and trust her completely. Her steady, positive guidance has helped us recognize opportunities for enhanced communications and connection as a couple. Her visual analogies are incredibly helpful in framing problems and become coping mechanisms that stick long after we have left the office. Importantly, she seems to work with the aim of putting herself out of business – giving us the tools and strategies to go forth without her.
“When you have been battling depression for over 40 years, it’s very easy to feel that there will never be any relief. I had worked with numerous therapists over the years with limited success, but still clung to the hope that I could find a way out of depression. When I met Angela, I found someone who helped me believe that not only could I survive my years of depression, but actually thrive. By asking probing questions, allowing me time to really dive into my thoughts to discover my own answers and gently prodding me to probe deeper, she provided a safe place for me to grieve for all the years I lost to depression and was my faithful cheerleader as I worked to overcome traumatic events and years of low self-esteem.She has continued to help me examine, question, then reframe my negative thoughts and work on seeing the positives in my life. With her understanding, insights, and guidance I have finally been able to realize that I have the power to change my life. I definitely believe that “when the student is ready the teacher will appear”. Angela was the exact teacher I needed.-PamIn August 2016, I hit an extreme low in my life that I believed there was no crawling back from. I felt shattered, worthless, and in a completely broken and anxious state. I met Angela at that time, and she got to know ME, the way I processed life, and the journey that lead me to her. I found her energy and presence calming, encouraging, and safe. She immediately started giving me what she called “tools” for my “toolbelt”, and for me, that made perfect sense (made sense to this engineer brain). They were small in the beginning but I started to use those tools, and the anxiety started to dissipate. She continued to added more tools to my tool belt. She showed me how to be more kind to myself and giving me the ability to begin to eradicate the negative self criticism. She taught me to understand my automatic reactions to situations and events, and “rewire” my brain to process them differently. This truly began to alter my reactions to situations that arose in my life, and once negative reactions slowly became positive.Every tool she provided, she encouraged “homework”. She let me know that I needed to keep these tools handy every day, and not just in my sessions with her because this was a process (a journey). Her approach made sense to me…it blended processes and procedures, with the emotion that was so overwhelming me. Some days the work was painful, but I can honestly say that those tools helped put back together the shattered and broken person I was. After a year, I am now a stronger, more confident, kinder and a more joyous person, with a little light shining through the cracks. This journey still can be challenging, but I know have survived the worst and can get through anything now, because I have the right tools that Angela has graciously given to me.”
Angela is a gifted and engaging presenter. I’d take any opportunity to hear her talk. In addition to her sophisticated understanding of her subject matter, she brings energy, a sense of humor, a generous heart, and a willingness to engage her audience that make her workshops wonderful experiences. She is excellent at taking specialized ideas, making them accessible, and connecting them to the real lives of her audience. I always learn something from Angela’s presentations! Go see her!
Angela facilitated our Colorado Women’s Retreat for two days this fall. Her presentation, “Jailbreak: The Making and Breaking of our Invisible Prisons” was the most amazing and fun learning experience we’ve ever had. Angela combines her intelligence and love of research with her warm and humorous style of teaching most effectively. She has that rare ability to present complex material in a most engaging way that makes it fun to learn. With her many years of experience as a University professor, researcher and clinical therapist, Angela has the depth and knowledge necessary to integrate a wide scope of theoretical information that we can use to enrich and improve our everyday lives. I cannot recommend Angela’s work highly enough.
