Welcome and congratulations on making the first, and oftentimes hardest, step to feeling and leading a healthier life.
My name is Angelica Grimes and I am a Licensed Associate Counselor. I believe that we are genetically and environmentally shaped into our being, how we think, and how we behave. All of these components influence our decisions, which ultimately steer our lives. It is easy to find ourselves lost amongst all of the chaos. We fall victim to all the "shoulds" "oughts" and "expectations" of society. Sometimes we need a little help getting through a situation, and other times certain events can mold our brains into negative thinking patterns and beliefs. Oftentimes we are unaware of these patterns until they become an inconvenience or emerge in ways that are a hindrance to our physical and mental well-being. It is easy to find yourself in the backseat, I can work with you on becoming the driver of your life again.
I view the counseling process as holistic in not only treating symptoms, but also looking beyond that in processing where they may stem from and tailoring treatment to your specific needs. I specialize in CBT and evidence-based practices to help you succeed in getting past your fears, reaching your goals, and developing a working set of coping skills to use throughout your life journey. In a collaborative effort, we can work together in your therapeutic journey to healing. I am confident that what you put into counseling is what you can ultimately get out of it.
The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts."
