About Angela

Angela grew up in the New Bedford area with her parents and sister. Originally contemplating becoming a preschool teacher, she attended Greater New Bedford Vocational Technical High School to study the Early Childhood Education track.

After high school, she attended Eastern Nazarene College and double-majored in Early Childhood Education and Psychology. Upon completing her Bachelor's degree, she got married and decided to pursue her Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy instead of a Master's in Education as originally planned. During graduate school, she accepted a one-year internship at Charis Counseling Center in 2000. She continued to practice there for 10 more years, earning her two Massachusetts state licenses (LMHC & LMFT), before opening her private practice in 2011.

Angela has been married for twenty years and is the proud mother of three teenage daughters: one in college, one in high school, and one in middle school. She loves learning, spending time with people, the beach, skiing, laughing. Angela is down to earth and has a good sense of humor.
