Along with extensive study in psychology, Angela has received practical and theoretical counseling training through Vancouver Community College and The Satir Institute of the Pacific. She specializes in the spiritual recovery from trauma, addictions, and bereavement by synthesizing somatic-based Self-Regulation Therapy - SRT ® - (Canadian Foundation for Trauma Research and Education) and shamanic healing arts.

Angela also teaches a variety of courses on traditional healing, ranging from introductory to long-term apprenticeships, and provides mentorship/supervision for holistic practitioners and healers. Her personal commitment to the integration of creativity and spirituality in both her private practice and teaching infuses her work with a unique and healing energy.
