"Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and review some specific
information about me.
From a very young age, I possessed a passion for helping and working with
people, which eventually lead to earning a Master’s of Social Work degree.
For over 15 years, I have continued to develop my passion for working with
people and have had various employment experiences, including case
management, group therapy, school social work, intensive therapy programs,
and several outpatient practices throughout Michigan.
As I have continued to grow as a mental health clinician, I’ve become very
interested in trauma work. Many people think of trauma as major incidents
such as war, car accidents, and/or severe abuse. However, my training and my
clients have taught me that trauma can come in almost any form and that many
people do not recognize the effects even small traumas can have on their
lives. I utilize EMDR (eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing), which
is a specific type of intervention used to treat incidents of trauma as
well as the negative beliefs we have about ourselves.
In addition to treating symptoms of trauma and PTSD, I also work with a
variety of other issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship issues,
mood disorders, and other common challenges that many people face. I work
with children, adults, couples, and families.
I am not a therapist who ever asks “What’s wrong with you?” Rather, my
entire outlook on working with people asks the question, “What has happened
to you in your life?” Through many years of practice I’ve found it is
primarily the events that have taken place in our lives which most
profoundly affect the way we feel, think, function, and behave. I have
dedicated my practice to assisting clients with achieving the goals that
they feel are important in
That is a little bit about me. However, regardless of my interests,
education, and experience, the most important thing when selecting a
therapist is that you feel comfortable with the person you choose to work
with. The therapeutic relationship is more important than any other
component of therapy. I welcome you to call or e-mail me in order to get a
more genuine sense of who I am and whether or not you’d feel comfortable
setting up an initial appointment with me. Thanks for your time and I look
forward to hearing from you if you have any questions or would like to
schedule your first appointment.--Angela Venegoni
