Dr. Angie Anderson
Founder Angie Anderson, Ph. D., Licensed Professional Counselor, Collaborative Divorce Coach & Child Specialist, and Certified Yoga Instructor, has provided mental health therapy, coaching and yoga instruction to hundreds of clients.
As a counselor for over twenty years in diverse settings, Angie has personally adopted an integrative approach while utilizing a variety of therapeutic interventions and tools to best meet the needs of her clients. Her intention is to bring to the session a theoretical recipe based upon person centered, existential, and cognitive behavioral ingredients. With an additional spirituality component, she hopes to empower clients while practicing with an integrative model. With a person centered focus, the relationship is of the utmost importance providing authenticity, respect, and acceptance. Through an existential lens, clients are supported to acknowledge potential for self-awareness and given freedom to choose individual fate. At times, cognitive behavioral interventions challenge personal belief systems to create awareness on the think-feel-do cycle.
Respecting the importance of the unity of families and marriages, Angie developed a five session program "Making Love Last." Through her program, Angie is dedicated to assisting families and couples with enhanced healthy communication and effective conflict resolution while maintaining mutual respect.
Angie is also collaboratively trained in helping families find balance and peace while going through a divorce. She will work with children as a Child Specialist to learn effective coping skills to deal with the changes in the family as they separate/divorce. She will also work with parents in developing healthy parenting plans to make the transition easier. With the adults going through a divorce, Angie will serve as a Divorce Coach to help the individual cope and deal with the loss of the marriage and meet the client where they need to help the process be as amicable as possible.
Practicing yoga for over 20 years, Dr. Angie enjoys teaching yoga of all levels in a variety of settings. She loves bringing her passion for yoga to many clients, teaching them to listen to their bodies & creating a space for each client to take their practice off the mat into their every day lives. Contact Dr. Angie for private sessions or special events.
Utilizing her PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision, she has enjoyed branching out as a counselor educator and clinical supervisor. In this role, Angie passionately brings her experience of counseling to future counselors. Presently, she is Affiliate Professor with Thomas University.
