Meet Angie Barker, MS.Ed, LCPC, LPC

Mental Health Counselor

 

Angie has lived in Macomb, Illinois with her husband for almost 28 years. They enjoyed raising their two daughters in this wonderful small town. Those daughters are now on their own living happy lives so it is on to the next chapter for them.

A little bit about her background. As a nontraditional student, she worked full-time and raised her family while attending undergraduate and then graduate courses part-time. In addition, since her husband was in the Army reserves, she often had the responsibility of being a single parent of sorts. Due to this she recognizes the importance of taking care of yourself so that you can manage all the requirements motherhood often brings. 

Beginning her own practice was always a dream. Once COVID-19 hit and appointments at the private practice where she worked slowed down, she realized it was time to make that dream a reality. Since you are reading this bio now, she must have figured out how to navigate all the details beginning this practice including creating a website!    

Since Angie and her husband plan to retire to the Ozarks area and want to travel during the winter, she struggled with how to continue providing consistent counseling for her clients. Online counseling was her way to solve this issue by combining two things that she loves doing.  

In her spare time, Angie enjoys walking, paddle boarding, and boating. She spends as much time as she can with her daughters and enjoying the Lake of the Ozarks. Her passion is her little rescue chihuahua, Gertie, who travels with her whenever she can.
