I am a professional counselor licensed in the State of Oklahoma with over 9 years of experience working as a psychotherapist, in outpatient settings; such as in office, homes, and schools. I have earned my Master of Arts in Christian Counseling (Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC) from Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, OK.
I view counseling as much more than a vocation-- but as my purpose and calling; and I also thoroughly enjoy the variety and challenge that navigating through Clients' situations can bring.
I am excited to bring forth my love and knowledge of scripture, combined in a unique way with counseling. I draw on my own experiences in my own relationship with God though Jesus Christ, along with my clinical skills, training, and experience with many varieties of people and backgrounds.
My passion is Christian-based counseling; and I am grateful that you, as my new client, could join me in your wonderful, yet at times, vulnerable, healing process (of counseling). Thanks so much for allowing me the opportunity!
I have treated (and continue to work with) Clients of a wide--range of demographics; with a variety of concerns, including depression, anxiety/panic, Identity in Christ, self-esteem/ self-worth, relationship communication issues, healing in romance and intimacy of marriage, parenting problems, and career challenges. I have worked with many people who have struggled with issues in divorce, as well as emotional and/or narcissistic abuse. I have had experience in working in a domestic violence offenders’ group counseling setting, as well.
My counseling style is warm, accepting, and intuitive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, empathy, and compassion, as I work to emphasize my clients’ strengths and abilities. My approach combines a Biblical-Based, Person-Centered/ Motivational Interviewing; cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, existential, family systems, as applicable. I will tailor our sessions to your needs; as we can also work together to form a treatment plan to meet your unique and specific goals.
I further subscribe to the belief in the role of the therapist which is to 'draw out', or to motivate, to support, to encourage; to provide knowledge of psychotherapeutic tools, thought constructs, as well as ideas and resources, to augment a client's mental/ behavioral health/ relationship communication.
In beginning your process of change, empowerment, and self-love discovery today; I invite you; my future valued client--to walk alongside you; on any stage of your journey.
Looking Onward and Upward,
Angela Alderman-Shotton, LPC
“The paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.
The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination.”
