Angela Mancini is the owner of La Luna Counseling and Wellness, established in 2020. Angela Mancini is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS), Certified Doula through DONA, and a 200 hour registered yoga instructor. After giving birth to her daughter, Angela struggled with serious postpartum anxiety and depression. She struggled to find an outlet and place for mothers who were struggling with these symptoms. She decided that when she was feeling stronger, she would create a safe space for women to be able to share their struggles without fear of judgement. This is how La Luna Counseling and Wellness was born.
Angela has experience working for the Department of Children Protection and Permanency through the State of NJ. She has worked in a psychiatric emergency room, domestic violence emergency shelter for women and in-home therapeutic services.
Angela's goal in therapy is to combine holistic means and bring them into the therapeutic setting. Angela loves to conduct walk and talks for her sessions. Being outside in nature gives people the comfort and security to be vulnerable while also grounding themselves. Angela also integrates her yoga practice into sessions when requested.
Angela's other passion in life is her role as a birth doula. She felt the need for this when she was seeing a pattern of facilitating therapy for pregnant women, wishing them good luck on their birth, and then seeing them for postpartum services. She wanted to bridge that gap between pregnancy and postpartum with therapeutic support.
Angela also trains therapists who are attempting to attain their clinical hours for full licensure with her ACS credential.
Angela is a married mother of three and dog mom to her therapy dog George who often comes to sessions for emotional support.
