Angela Povar, M.Psy.


Angela’s clinical work and experience includes the assessment and treatment of children, adolescents and adults. She is passionate about assisting individuals who are experiencing a wide array of concerns, including depression, anxiety, anger, stress management, conflict resolution, adjustment difficulties, self-esteem concerns, and emotional regulation difficulties.  She has a particular interest and expertise in talking to children to help them adjust to parental separation and in helping parents help children through separation and divorce to ensure they remain confident and resilient. Angela is an attentive listener and also provides tools to benefit her clients.  Ultimately, she helps her clients, of all ages, to live a more fulfilled, less anxious and happier life.

With children, Angela loves to explore creative and playful ways to engage them and to teach them tools, using a CBT framework, to be less anxious and stressed.  She is also creative in helping children tantrum less and be less angry.  With teens, Angela connects with them and sees the world from their perspective.  She includes parents during her work with children and teens and empathizes with their challenges while also providing a way forward in difficult situations with their children, teaching them useful strategies.

Angela is a conscientious and empathetic listener and she provides a safe, compassionate and non-judgmental space to connect and explore a client’s presenting difficulties and concerns. With this understanding, she works collaboratively to establish a treatment plan and help clients attain their therapeutic goals and needs.

Angela is working under the supervision of Dr. Susan Williams who provides ongoing support with clients.  She is in the process of applying to the College of Psychologists to be registered as a Psychological Associate in Supervised Practice.
