Angelique Poisson, LMFT, ATR
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Art Therapist
I am passionate about helping clients create a life they love. With mindfulness-based techniques, my clients experience increased confidence to live according to their values and cope more effectively with all the emotions that come with living a full and meaningful life.
When working with clients, it is a priority to explore my client's value system to better understand the components that ground them and motivate their behavior. In addition to being foundational for goal-setting, knowing our core values empowers us to set healthy boundaries, persevere through change, and find peace and equanimity in our daily lives. My clients often experience a big emotions due to transitional life events, past traumas, or even biology. While emotions are important, they don't have to control our lives. I love helping clients learn that they can loosen the hold of painful cognitive narratives and compulsive behaviors without numbing the emotions that feel central to their experience.
I have worked effectively with clients with anxiety, BPD, OCD, bipolar, past trauma, and grief. I have also worked effectively with clients going through life transitions. For example: young adults transitioning to independence, career and relationship changes, etc.

Community & Identity Statement
As a black female therapist, I am passionate about making space for my client's unique cultural experiences in therapy. I believe a client should have the opportunity to explore how their racial/ethnic/sexual/gender/faith identity informs their experience of the world and their mental health.
