Angie Barker, MS.Ed, LCPC, LPC
About Angie Barker
Angie has lived in Macomb, Illinois with her husband for almost 28 years where they raised their two daughters. She obtained her Bachelor’s in Psychology from Western Illinois University as well as her Master’s in Counseling Education. She is a member of the NBCC, ICA, and a past President for the Western Illinois Professional Counselor’s Association.
Angie works with a variety of clients and their concerns including depression, anxiety, and stress and anger management. She enjoys assisting couples to navigate difficult phases of life and improve their communication and intimacy. Family counseling, including child behavioral problems and/or divorce issues, is an area where Angie excels. First responders and the military are close to Angie’s heart as her husband is in law enforcement and the military. Her family lived through two year-long deployments so she has a vast knowledge of the stress that is suffered on the home front as well as an idea of what the soldier has to endure overseas and when they return. Angie encourages all of her clients, especially women, to improve their wellbeing by making themselves a priority. This includes doing what they can to be healthy and happy.
Since Angie and her husband will be relocating to the Ozarks and plan to travel during the cold winters, online counseling is a way she can continue providing consistent help to her clients. In her spare time, Angie enjoys taking long walks with her rescue Chihuahua, Gertie, spending time with her family, and most outside activities.
