Angela MillerI am a social worker who is committed to helping individuals who struggle with depression, anxiety, anger management, trauma, and other stressors that occur in day-to-day life. I graduated from Shippensburg University with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. I later earned my Master’s degree in Social Work from Edinboro University. My approach is strengths-based where I work collaboratively with clients on identifying and achieving treatment goals specific to them. I believe that healing and change requires joint effort between the therapist and the client. I utilize evidence-based treatments such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Trauma-Informed approaches. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, being outside (preferably near the water), and exploring new places. I look forward to working with you.
