Email: Angela

Angela Albertson, MA, altered her own path to healing after a life changing injury. Through energy medicine she was able to access alternative pathways, and take responsibility for her health and well-being. She adapted ways to power the mind through visual imagery, breath-work, creativity with sound frequency, and quantum physics (manifestation). She is empowered by her understanding of these techniques because they were her source of recovery. Not just healing the body, but tapping into limitless potential that the human body provides if recognized by the right intention.

When we interact with our playfulness, we become less restricted by limitations. Angela’s purpose is to create a space that one can feel at ease, with lots of humor, silliness and play. Angela believes that returning to one’s innocence can help life become lighter, brighter and not taken so seriously.

Angela was born and raised in Akron, Ohio where she earned her Bachelors degree in Psychology from the University of Akron. She accomplished her Master’s Degree in Counseling and completed her internship at Ai Pono, Maui. A holistic residential treatment center specializing in eating disorders. Her work with this population has strengthened her niche as a therapist building upon a humanistic approach with many experiential components. Her passion for therapy stems from her love of Dance, yoga, Qi gong/Tai Chi. Bodywork or Somatic techniques bring subconscious hidden potential into the consciousness through the body. This process allows one to experience full appreciation, and acceptance of one’s authentic truth.

Angela believes that health is personal, intertwined with people’s individual perceptions and mindsets. A person’s truth is best understood through their own unique lens. Angela accepts the validity and truth of her client’s experience, but challenges this perspective by bringing the past into the present (Gestalt method). She is proficient in many techniques and tailors her intuitive understanding to the individual. Treating the client as a whole, mind, body and spirit. A therapy session with Angela will typically involve the practice of finding the present moment and connecting with the body through felt sense exercises. Utilizing a combination of modalities; cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Internal family systems (IFS), breathwork, visual imagery, and movement. Her hope is to increase emotional intelligence, empower clients to feel more comfortable in their own skin, and ignite the pathway of self-discovery by connecting the emotional, mental, and physical self.

“Nothing can be understood until it is felt.”

–Ola Lokahi—balance & harmony

Angela’s hobbies include singing, dancing, writing, astrology, sand sculpting, swimming and volleyball. Her daily mindfulness practice includes yoga, breath-work, Qi gong and dance.
