Hello, I am Dr. Angela L. Exum. I am a native New Yorker who has lived in South Florida for the past 21 years. I have 30 years of experience in Education and providing Mental Health Services. I worked for Broward County Public Schools as a School Counselor, Behavior Specialist, Administrator, and an Exceptional Student Learning Support Family Counselor. I hold Certifications in School Counseling, School Supervision/Leadership, and I am a Nationally Board-Certified School Teacher/Counselor. As a National Board-Certified Counselor, I have served as a consultant to set National Standards for Counselors and served on the Development Content Advisory Committee. This makes me well versed in matters that involve school aged-children and parenting. I received a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from SUNY @ Buffalo; a Master’s degree in Counselor Education from Canisius College in Buffalo, New York; and a Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy from Barry University in Miami Shores, Florida. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the states of Florida, Georgia, and New York. In addition, I am a Certified Supreme Court Family Mediator, Certified Active Parent Trainer/Educator, and Qualified Parent Coordinator in Broward, Palm Beach, and Miami Dade Counties. I am a full-time practicing Psychotherapist and Speaker for my organization Exum Life Counseling, Mediation, and Training Services Inc. Moreover, I am a published author and working on publishing more books for children and adults, as well as starting a podcast, X-rated Therapy.
I have work in a myriad of diverse clinical and non-clinical settings that have allowed me to hone my skills to strengthen my counseling abilities. I am compassionate, empathetic, and enthusiastic about helping those who are struggling with mental health disorders, Anxiety, Depression, Career, or just everyday life and the stressors that may come your way. My mission is to collaborate with you using my Solution-Focused approach to meet your unique needs and to determine areas of strength. As well as to promote healing within and to address your emotional and behavioral needs. I pride myself in providing a safe, non-judgmental, supportive, and confidential environment that treats everyone with respect and dignity. Allow me to help you bring peace, stability, and productivity to your personal lives. I look forward to working with you to help build a stronger you.
Be Well! Dr. X
