A Bit About Me

Time to meet the "TEAM!"

Nice to meet you!

Hello, I'm Angela Poch and I'm a clinical counsellor* and life coach specializing in: defeating depression & anxiety, improving relationships, insomnia, and integrative health. I use TEAM-CBT and, if you choose, faith-based methods to create lasting change in a brief time frame. There are a few things make me unique and possibly a good fit for you.

I've worked with Dr. David Burns as a small group leader in his workshops and I am currently a small group leader in his Stanford Tuesday group for health professionals.

Having faced depression and anxiety I can related to what you are going through.

I'm ADHD, have many autistic traits, dealt with trauma and bullying in my own life, had suicidal thoughts, don't feel like it fit into any gender mold, am a mother, worked with youth, veterans, professionals, homeless, and love to meet people from all walks of life.

I"m non-judgmental as I believe freedom of conscious is more important than life itself.

More about me below the video!

Disclaimer: So while I reference works by Dr. David Burns and others, there are some concepts that I do not ascribe to. No one is perfect and please be mindful there can and will be mistakes in any written materials.

I love science but have faith too. I like my alone time but enjoy helping others. I believe in a healthy lifestyle but savor delicious dessert. If anyone understands we are unique and have multiple dimensions, it's me! Whether you fit the mold or broke it, I'll work with you to find effective solutions while providing a safe, non-judgmental place to share what is on your heart and mind.

In my own life I've dealt with depression, anxiety, anger, relationship issues, insomnia, stress, loss, bullying, and even suicidal ideation, and while I'm not perfect, I'm on the other side to tell you there is hope for recovery!

I have had or do have: ADHD, autistic symptoms, memory problems, chronic pain, gender/identity issues, trauma, IBS, fibromyalgia, and other real life ebbs and flows, none of which have stopped me from finding joy and recovery!

I get how hard it can be to open up. That when you are in the midst of darkness, light seems impossible! When the anxiety is so strong you feel it in your body. Don't stop here just reading this, book a free chat with me right now!

Breaking the Mold!

I've been asked how can I be a safe place for LGBTQ+ and still be a Christian? I've learned these are not incompatible. We can be inclusive and accepting of others while standing for what we believe on our journey that intersects with others along the way.

Diversity & Acceptance

Results Driven


Before and after each session we do a progress report on how you are feeling to ensure we are moving in the right direction. If you are not feeling some improvement within the first couple sessions, I'm happy to offer you a free double session to see if we can gain some momentum.

I encourage you to learn more!
