Angelina Castellani , MA, LPC, NCC
Lead Therapist at Evoke Therapy Intensives
Angelina is a Licensed Professional Counselor and National Certified Counselor with experience working in a variety of therapeutic settings, including residential treatment and private practice.
Education & Prior Work Experience
Angelina started her counseling journey working with teens and young adults in residential treatment in Pittsburgh, PA. She expanded this work in Hawaii where she was employed at a prominent outdoor behavioral health program serving adolescents, young adults, and their families. In the course of her career, Angelina has incorporated her belief in the healing powers of the outdoors by learning and utilizing horticultural therapy techniques. This work deepened her passion for nature-assisted therapies and sparked her interest in ceremony and rites of passage as a catalyst for growth and transformation for young people and their families. She also gained experience working with attachment theory, which she has continued to use in her private practice work. Her approach is person-centered, and she enjoys depth work with clients, along with the use of Internal Family Systems.
Angelina’s greatest strength is the unconditional positive regard that she feels towards each and every individual with whom she works. She genuinely believes in the capability and inner wisdom of each of her clients, and she provides a non-judgmental and affirmative approach to healing. Her ability to authentically connect and build strong rapport then allows her to challenge her clients when it is of therapeutic benefit. She strives to show wholehearted acceptance of each person and their story while encouraging and supporting clients in their journey of self-exploration.
Growing up in the lush woods of Northwestern Pennsylvania, Angelina loves exploring in nature. Her time on the Big Island of Hawaii also instilled a deep love of and reverence for the ocean. She spends as much time outdoors as possible, especially in the warmer months, as she will now forever be an island girl at heart. She also loves live music, dancing, laughing, and all things food-related.
