Angelina Dawkins, LISW-CP

I moved to the area from up North and am very excited to begin my next chapter in Greenville! I am passionate about helping others see their potential and feeling empowered in who they are. I always want you to feel heard, supported, and seen in our time together while working to achieve what is most important to you. 

I completed my Bachelors Degree in Social Work and Psychology from Valparaiso University and completed my Masters degree in Social Work from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  My background is serving individuals with substance abuse concerns to the Veteran population as well as homeless prevention services. I worked in private practice with adults and adolescents presenting with a variety of mood disorders such as anxiety and depression, self-esteem concerns, and traumas.  

I am focused on a holistic approach in treatment, working together with clients to identify areas they would like to heal and strengthen in their mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being for a balanced life. I focus on actively listening to provide a space of support and compassion allowing for exploration of emotions, thoughts, and feelings. I utilize a variety of techniques in my practice, including Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused problem solving.
