My Style

Angelique has a heart for working with children, teens, and adults who are struggling with OCD, anxiety, phobias, relationship issues, depression and life changes. Her approach to counseling involves a mixture of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Person Centered Therapy. She believes that the practical, research-based, action-steps of CBT are most productive when paired with a strong therapeutic relationship that is characterized by trust and an unconditional positive regard for the client. For clients struggling with OCD, OC related disorders, anxiety, and certain phobias, she utilizes Exposure Response and Prevention (ERP). At times, Angelique incorporates many expressive modalities in her therapy sessions; such as, sand tray, coloring, and role playing. She uses an integrative approach to create a safe, non-judgmental, and compassionate environment in which individuals can explore and grow.


Outside the counseling room, you’ll find Angelique immersed in the vibrant world of live theater. With a guilty pleasure for “Shrek, the Musical,” she finds something magical in its charm. Beyond the stage, she cherishes moments spent with her daughter and husband. Angelique might have a slight obsession with bamboo clothing, admitting it’s becoming a wardrobe issue. Flea markets are her playground, and she loves discovering hidden treasures. Traveling to new places with her family is a passion that fuels her curiosity and expands her perspective.
