Life with Purpose Christian Counseling

Nina F. Angeles, M.A., LPC, NCC

Do you often ask yourself if you matter? Think you’re not good enough?

Are there unresolved issues from the past that you struggle with? Feeling stuck and can’t “get it together?

Sometimes things happen to us that leave us feeling ashamed, guilty, anxious, and depressed.

Don’t despair!

There is hope...

You are not defined by the pain of your past – you can reclaim your life. The path to healing and wholeness may be challenging, but the end result is well worth it.

Together, we can work through the thoughts, feelings, and past trauma that keep you from living a healthy, purposeful life.

What I Offer

Individual Therapy

A secure, safe environment for you to explore your thoughts, your feelings without fear of judgement. It is where we will work together to explore the origins and sources of your anxious and depressive thoughts, It is where we will  “clean up the past” , so you can fully enjoy your life in the present. 

Play Therapy

Children do not typically have the language to say ” I hurt” or  “I’m sad”. When your child is mad at someone or is anxious about something; if he or she has not been taught to express emotions with words, your child will act out his or her feelings and may behave in ways that are aggressive and at times, frightening.  Play therapy is about your child engaging in “play” with the goal of helping him or her identify, process, manage and express emotions using appropriate words. Much of the work I do with children involves including you as a parent.

I particularly enjoy working with individuals who struggle with anxiety and depression due to unresolved trauma such as sexual, emotional, and physical abuse during childhood. My greatest joy comes from watching clients let go of the hurt from the past and live fully in the present.
