Angela Buchanan, LCSW-A, LCAS
Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist
Life is full, complicated, amazing and sometimes we get a curve ball thrown our way. Though each of us possess the tools and wisdom of healing, it is during those curve balls that we need an aide to point out our strength and resilience. As a counselor, I see myself as the aide with the bag of tools to help. You decide where we go, what you want out of counseling, and choose what tools you will use. Those times may come from parenting, substance use, hurting those we love, burn out, anxiety, transition, not being able to be who we fully are, and questioning life.
I am person centered. My practice is driven on this belief - you are not the issue, diagnosis, problem. You are unique and have value. I am passionate about working with those who have been harmed and/or harmed others in abusive relationships. I also like to work with those who fill the voids with substances, over work, people, etc...
It is about learning that we can be strong in those broken cracked places. The Japanese use the art of mending broken pottery with lacquer resin laced with gold or silver, which brings strength and beauty to those broken cracked places. I invite you to allow me to be your aide in the journey of strength, resilience and beauty.
