Angie Vandenberg, LCSW is a clinician with over a decade of experience in the field of social work. In 2009, she graduated from the University of North Carolina-Charlotte, and practiced therapy at a local non-profit in Charlotte and it’s surrounding areas. She relocated to our beautiful coast in 2012. She currently lives in Wilmington where she holds a leadership position at UNCW School of Social Work. She teaches graduate students best practice in clinical social work, and also serves as the field education coordinator.
The client relationship is very important to Angie, and therefore she is grounded in a person centered and strength-based approach. This means she believes each of us has our own set of strengths that we bring to the table and she looks to honor the resilience within her clients. It is important to her that clients feel safe and supported in sessions so they may explore thoughts, feelings, speak their truth, and practice congruence so they may navigate the ups and downs and plot twists that are a natural part of life. She has received formal training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy through the Beck Institute, and she often utilizes this modality as well as Solution Focused Therapy and Motivational Interviewing during sessions.
She is excited to be part of Therapy Charlotte because the Queen City will always hold a special place in her heart, as well as the many clients and clinicians she worked with while living there! Since she lives in Wilmington, sessions with will Angie be done via telehealth.
