After working as a therapist for over a decade, Angel noticed a growing trend among all the ages that she worked with: the spiritual aspects of clients were being ignored, brushed over, or narrowly focused. The concept of addressing the “whole person” during treatment was gaining slight traction with the introduction of more preventive approaches such as meditation and stress reduction, but the medical model continued/continues to focus on fixing what is physically wrong without addressing the third component. Mind and body was being more readily examined, but the soul remained untouched.
As a fairly new ideology, spiritual guidance caught her attention. It was a way to address the matters of spirituality in a calm, loving, and safe vessel. When she saw a program aimed at this very idea, she decided to take it. The focus of her work is to help clients navigate and understand their own spiritual world/experiences, and to help them uncover the innate gifts and abilities that they have to share with the world.
Angel holds a B.S. in Psychology from Howard University, a M.S. in Mental Health Counseling from Nova Southeastern University, and an M.A. in Spiritual Guidance from Sofia University.
