Licensed Professional Counselor – Anjali (Angie) Tekriwal
No matter how old you are – We all struggle from time to time with handling our emotions, life challenges, and self-identity. Engaging in mental health counseling and trusting a mental health professional to help and assist you with these issues is a wise and brave choice. I believe counseling is about personal growth and wellness. I believe we ALL can benefit from therapy because at the end of the day it is about unloading the emotional baggage we are trying to deal with on a daily basis. There is always a silver lining in everyday life and embracing challenges – and change.
I can help you just do that. I believe that learning to understand, cope with, and move forward from your challenges should take place in a safe, judgment-free, and peaceful environment with a licensed mental health therapist you can trust. Rather than focusing on diagnoses, I focus on helping you find ways to improve your life, minimize stress and worry, and discover the confidence you need to be the best version of yourself.
A Mental Health Therapist You Can Trust
Therapy begins with finding a therapist you can trust who is knowledgeable and has the training and experience to help you. I have my Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Fairleigh Dickinson University, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. My therapeutic approach is eclectic however with a strong focus and emphasis on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I have experience in helping adolescents and young adults find their way in today’s rapidly changing environment, as well as guiding them to discover their inner strengths.
As a marriage and family therapist, I have helped families and couples reconnect, rekindle, and re-forge new, lasting, and stronger bonds to promote future well-being and happiness. As a licensed mental health counselor, I will provide a safe, relaxing, and encouraging environment with warm guidance as you begin to discover your strength and confidence.
Work With Angie
Uncovering the silver lining in the issues you’re facing begins with a phone call. When it’s convenient, we will discuss issues you are struggling with and process if I am a good fit for you. If I believe I am unable to help you I will refer you to another mental health professional in the community who I trust. This call is not just a way for me to get to know you. It is also an opportunity to ask questions you may have, too. That way, we can determine if there is a good fit and good energy between both of us. I always say, “At the end of the day we could all use a therapist. I want to break the stigma that mental health carries and I want people to realize there is a silver lining.”
