Angelica Clayton, ACMHC
Angelica Clayton, ACMHC is a dedicated therapist with experience in both clinical and school settings. Angelica has worked with clients struggling with depression, anxiety, emotional regulation, trauma, life transitions, attachment and maladaptive relationship issues among other life challenges. While she has enjoyed working with various populations, she is particularly concerned with the challenges that come with adolescence and emerging adulthood and always knew she wanted to work with teens -“I have a special place in my heart for adolescents and I believe change is possible when these kids feel seen and connected”.
Angelica utilizes a person centered approach as a foundation for her work and is a firm believer in the value of teaching DBT skills for success beyond treatment. She also draws from cognitive behavioral therapy, strength-based solution focused, and emotionally focused therapy. Angelica is invested in using a holistic approach to mental health that addresses the whole person, and recognizes how important it is to identify all aspects of an individual’s life that impact well-being including but not limited to support systems, environment, culture, sexual orientation, and faith and/or spirituality process.
Angelica graduated from the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs with bachelor’s degree in psychology and soon after earned her master’s degree clinical mental health counseling and human services from the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs.
Angelica describes herself as an eternal student: “my only complaint in life is that I may never have the time to read all the books I want to read and learn all the things I want to learn”. When not at work, Angelica enjoys running, reading, yoga, outdoor activities, culinary arts, and will never turn down an opportunity to connect with friends and family.
