AKB has been counseling since 2001. A native of Dallas, she headed to the plains to attend Texas Tech University and then on to Dallas Seminary, where she received her MA in Counseling. In addition to her work in private practice, seven years ago Angie co-designed the family program for Burning Tree Recovery Ranch, which she co-facilitates approximately ten times through out the year. Angie is also an accomplished presenter, speaking for local churches, schools, local organizations, businesses and trainings for other professionals. Her presentations include humor, education, experiential exercises as well as sharing about her own “growth opportunities”. She also holds the license of supervisor and enjoys working with new clinicians as they pursue their professional development.
Since being in private practice, Angie has worked with adolescents, families, marriages and individuals addressing a variety of struggles. She specializes in anxiety, family and marriage dynamics and addiction, with an emphasis on eating disorders, substance abuse and the family component of the disease. Angie also provides assessments to either the individual or the family to help determine next steps for those struggling with eating disorders and substance abuse.
Angie’s philosophy of life is simple: Life is to be LIVED one day at a time- not survived. She deeply values the recovery community believing that life change takes place in the context of relationships and vulnerability. She hopes that as she works with others, they will understand their reality allowing them to live in freedom and truth. When not counseling you can find Angie, contemplating her next project which may or may not ever be completed, reading a good book but mostly spending time with her husband, her son or other family members and friends.
