Angel Rose Counseling
A Safe Place for Healing Heart, Mind and Soul
Supportive, Client Centered Mental Health Services
Every person is unique and each of us has a story. Our stories are filled with a special blend of feelings and experiences. Sometimes our stories are so frightening and painful that we are afraid to share them with others. Your story matters. I am here to listen, explore the impact of your story with you and help reinforce your skills to move forward.
I believe, in addition to traditional methods of therapy, that by creating a safe space and assisting with a deeper understanding of the spiritual self, we can walk together on your path to wholeness. We can work together to increase your sense of interconnectedness as we work towards reaching wellness goals. By working together with a holistic, multi-faceted approach towards healing you, will bring insight into the complex being that is you.
I’m here to support you on your journey toward healing and self-discovery.
About the therapist

I have an extensive history working as a trauma specialist, addressing depression and anxiety, domestic violence, and sexual assault. My experiences both personally and professionally have helped me understand and support the unique needs of the immigrant community as well.
I obtained 2 undergraduate degrees from the University of Kansas; a BA in Spanish and Bachelors in Social Work. I obtained my MSW from the University of Missouri, Kansas City in 2008.

Parenting Support and Relationship Building
Sometimes the whole family needs support to overcome challenging situations. Coming to therapy as a family or a couple will allow for learning new conflict resolution skills, connection building and relationship repairing.
Overcoming Traumatic Experiences
A traumatic experience can cause someone to struggle because their usual coping skills no longer work. I can help support your healing from your most difficult experiences.
Personal and Individual Growth
I am here to support your journey of change and growth. Together we will identify your strengths, your challenges and your ability to overcome. "The secret to change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new." - Dan Millman
Child Centered Play Therapy
Children have different needs than adults. I love working with little kids and adolescents. I am here to help kids learn to understand and cope with their big feelings. I also help parents to understand ways to better connect with their children and manage through the difficulties.
