Meet Ariel Bracey: Here To Serve You
Angela has experience working with adolescents and adults in various settings including residential treatment, individual, couples, and group therapies. She brings many years of experience working with children and adolescents in the school system, summer camps, and volunteer work to her therapy style. She has practiced as a mental health counselor since 2011. Angela is passionate about brain health and sharing Dr. Daniel Amen’s research with her clients empowering them with the knowledge and hope for healing. It merges her love for science and research with teaching the tools for her clients to build motivation for change.
Angela uses a combination of traditional therapeutic techniques with research from Dr. Daniel Amen’s extensive work in the neuroscience field. As quoted by Dr. Amen,’’How do you know unless you look?” She shares SPECT imaging (Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography) to help destigmatize mental health. Her primary focus is to empower her clients through education for promoting brain functionality. With the practice of holistic treatment, she believes the brain is the organ at work that needs to be considered in all aspects of mental health.
Angela uses EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) to address the emotional trauma which, for many people, leads to feelings of anxiety, depression, unresolved grief, poor self-esteem, and emotional eating. Traumas addressed include physical, sexual, verbal abuse/neglect, PTSD, medical related traumas, loss of significant relationships, and domestic violence. She is also a Prepare/Enrich facilitator who offers customized relationship assessments and skill-building tools promoting healthy relationships for engaged or married couples.
