Licensed Professional Counselor
Hello, I’m Angela Joyce (She/Her/Hers),
I enjoy working with adults and couples on a variety of issues. Some of the primary issues I address with clients are depression, anxiety, life transitions, communication skills, and relationship issues. I practice from an Existential and Humanistic perspective and utilize the Gottman Institute approach for couples therapy. I also incorporate positive psychology, non-violent communication, solution-focused therapy, and cognitive behavioral interventions into my work.
I began my career working as a clinician in an inpatient psychiatric unit on the northside of Chicago. After moving to Pittsburgh, I spent some time working for an outpatient drug and alcohol treatment program and then transitioned to the community mental health setting. I spent over eight years working at Pittsburgh Mercy’s Extended Acute Care program, assisting individuals transitioning from hospitalization back to independent living. I then joined Lauren Hartz in private practice and have since enjoyed serving a wide variety of individuals and couples in the outpatient setting.
I believe in building a compassion-filled environment to help you identify your strengths, learn better coping skills, strengthen relationships, and create meaning in your life. Whether you’ve experienced an unexpected loss, problems in the work setting, tension in your relationships, or just a general feeling of unease, we can work together to process your experience and make positive change in your life.
Please contact the office at 412-228-8489 to learn more about my availability. I accept UPMC, Highmark, Cigna, and United Health. I also offer a private pay rate of $120 with a sliding scale fee if that is not affordable.
