About Angela Ficken

I am a therapist who will challenge you to work on becoming the happier, healthier self you envision. I am an active listener in sessions and believe that providing feedback is the best way to challenge behavior patterns and to ultimately help you connect with your own strengths, wisdom, and inner resources. I ask questions, and will engage you in a thoughtful way while providing you with a non-judgmental, supportive environment.

I use several therapy strategies to guide patients toward accomplishing goals:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
Supportive Psychotherapy
Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) – Exposure therapy is specifically used for people diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Each individual comes with different experiences and needs, therefore we might use one or all of these strategies based on what you want to work on. I believe in progress not perfection and that with every problem there is an opportunity for growth.
