Angela Kelly completed her undergraduate degrees at UNC Asheville in 2010, double majoring in Psychology and Health and Wellness Promotion. While completing her degree, she stayed involved with her local community by participating in internships with Girls on the Run of WNC, Go to Goal, and Getting Into Fitness Together. She had the opportunity to conduct undergraduate research during this time and spent time working with a local psychiatric residential treatment facility working with adolescent boys and girls.
After spending many years in the medical field, Angela was drawn back to mental health, completing her master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Lenoir-Rhyne Graduate University in 2020. During her graduate experience, Angela participated in an internship with a local day treatment facility where she worked with adult women, providing substance abuse and eating disorder treatment. Angela completed her second internship here with ACAPS where she worked with adult men and women and adolescents. Through a trauma-informed and person-centered lens, Angela works in collaboration with her clients to process through challenges such as anxiety, depression, trauma, health and wellness, and life-transitions in a safe and nonjudgmental environment.
