My name is Angela Dora Dobrzynski. I’m a professional counselor, and am passionate for all things personal development and human behavior. I specialize in grief and non-death losses, and I also work with clients through significant life transitions. I have an orientation toward health and stress psychology, emotional resilience and utilizing strengths as the basis of personal development. If you identify with Adult Children of Alcoholics or had trauma and dysfunction in your family of origin, we will likely work together very well.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Pennsylvania. Additionally, I am a Certified Grief Counseling Specialist and I hold a certificate in Holistic Health Coaching from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. My Master’s degree is in Counseling Psychology from Rosemont College and my Bachelor’s degree is in Psychology from Stockton University.
Prior to private practice, I worked as a Bereavement Counselor for Main Line Health Homecare and Hospice. I spent twelve years working at Women’s Resource Center, where I provided solutions-focused counseling to clients facing significant life transitions. Prior to that I worked for six years at The Renfrew Center, a residential treatment facility for eating disorders patients. I was adjunct faculty at Manor College and have worked in all levels of education, including the therapeutic nursery at Children’s Crisis Treatment Center. Part of my work includes providing clinical supervision to professional counselors. I am a member of Psi Chi, the International Honor Society in Psychology.
My approach to counseling starts with our relationship. I seek to understand you from a holistic and lifespan perspective. Given this understanding, I will share my observations with you, allowing you to connect the dots of your relevant life experience. From there we develop your primary goals for counseling and begin interventions to reach those goals. When appropriate, I will provide tools, skills and resources to support you.
Teletherapy sessions are held via HIPAA-compliant Zoom, and typically last 50 minutes. Office sessions are available on Fridays in Downingtown.
$100 per session, payable by credit or debit card (Visa, MC, AmEx). I do not work with health insurance, but can provide an invoice after payment if your plan allows you to submit for reimbursement.
