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.
