Angela Marie Gouger graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio with her Masters of Science in Clinical Mental Health. She was able to obtain a multitude of experiences through her work with the Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas – where she obtained skills in play therapy and still runs the “Little Hearts” group (3-5 year olds) as well as meets with individual clients; the University of Incarnate Word – where she focused on EMDR and trauma based counseling; Catholic Charities – trauma and faith based counseling; and the UTSA Sarabia Center – where she counseled clients as well as provided Neurofeedback therapy.
Through research conducted at UTSA, her research group received awards for their pilot study: “Using Neurofeedback to Lower Anxiety Using Individualized qEEG Protocols: A Pilot Study”; which was also published in the journal Neuroregulation. Under the mentorship of Dr. Mark Jones, Angela has completed a practicum and two internships in Neurofeedback, as well as introductory and advance coursework, which she went on to help train new students with. Angela is the current Secretary for the Biofeedback Society of Texas and is working towards her board certification in Neurofeedback through the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance.
Angela obtained Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) training through Rick Levinson, LCSW. She is deeply passionate about the utilization of these multi-modal evidence based therapeutic practices and their benefits with a variety of clients, especially those who have experienced a traumatic incident, anxiety, depression, ADHD, TBI, anger management, insomnia, PTSD, amongst others. By integrating the various modalities in which she has specialized in, Angela is able to bring an integrative holistic client-centered approach, which is individually catered to each client’s unique needs.
