About us

Hi, I’m Angelica!

Come take a journey with me, where together we will craft a creative healing experience just for you. Working together we will find way to help you heal from whatever may be stopping you from living your life with freedom and purpose.

I believe in using your creativity to help find a way out of anything that may have caused pain in your life. I have seen many people heal their hearts and lives to create the life they had always dreamed of. Now, I want to help you increase the light that lives inside of you.

For over a decade, I have used traditional evidence-based therapies, in addition to creative interventions, group therapy, and the latest EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) therapy, to help move the healing process along. To me, laughter is as healing as crying, so don’t be surprised if you hear laughter coming out of my office! 

I look forward to getting to know you better and helping to you heal, stay healthy and grow.

It’s my heart’s desire to make sure that each client is able to get in touch with their inner creativity, so they can create the life they have always dreamed of and deserve, one filled with love, joy and healing.”

Snapshot of

For more than 10 years Angelica has worked in private practice, using creative and evidence-based methods to help her clients –using several interventions, including psychodrama, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.

She is certified in the latest EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapeutic methods, which helps individuals cope with traumatic events and emotions for true healing.

She’s worked within a large in-patient treatment center, where she gained experience working with groups, families and individuals with eating disorders.

Angelica has also taught Group Therapy to Master’s candidates in the University of Miami’s Psychology program, and served as clinical director of a Christian eating disorders support group called Lasting Freedom.

She embarked on her career in psychology working at Miami Children’s Hospital in the psychiatric unit & facilitating groups for children and teens who self-injured.

Angelica has spoken nationally and internationally on a variety of topics including, trauma, self-injury and eating disorders.

My journey to creating Eden began one day, when I was praying and felt God directing me to start a faith-based group. At this point in my life, I had spent over a decade working with people with eating disorders and wanted to offer a space where science and faith could truly intersect. My goal was to create a group where people might learn to cultivate the garden of their heart to heal, repair and restore and take them back to the very beginning. To Eden.  

My inspiration to start this collaborative of therapist's was based on my relationship with God. I have seen people of all faiths and no faith come into our offices, groups and transform their lives. 

All are welcome! 

Science can change, but only God can transform.

Hi, I’m Marian!

My lifelong fascination with the intricacies of successful relationships extends to the realm of mental health, particularly among adults and teenagers. I've always been intrigued by how people develop thriving connections, both with those around them and within themselves. My personal journey, marked by its fair share of relational challenges, acted as the spark that ignited my unquenchable curiosity about the psychology behind social interactions.

Devoting significant time to studying the factors that foster flourishing
relationships and emotional well-being, I've found my calling in working with
couples, adults, young adults and teenagers. To help amplify the sharing of knowledge throughout the community I have participated in several podcasts dedicated to relationships including, the Love On & The Coffee Breakup podcasts.

I am committed to empowering my clients to thrive in their relationships and find contentment and fulfillment within themselves.
Join me on this transformative journey, where we explore the secrets of building lasting connections and achieving personal peace. Together, we can pave the way for brighter, more fulfilling futures.

Working with Angie has been an amazing privilege, and a true blessing in my life.

I am going to attempt to put my experience into words, but I know I won't be able to fully describe what it has been like for me, or the extent to which being Angie's client has changed my life. When I started working with Angie, I didn't really acknowledge that I had significant trauma. I had been Anorexic for over 20 years, and I was still just trying to get a handle on that and basically just to survive.

During the years I have worked with Angie, literally almost everything has changed.

Working with Marian as our therapist has been an experience beyond measure!

Marian helped my partner and I rebuild our relationship and encouraged navigating conflict, which we were both terrified of, rather than ignoring it. Thanks to her, we are both able to handle disagreements and have been able to improve our relationship significantly by starting to establish greater trust.

Leslie is kind, patient, and a person of trust for my daughter and our family. 

Leslie has been working with my daughter for several years helping improve her relationship with food, and associated self-esteem issues. Leslie is kind, patient, and a person of trust for my daughter and our family. Her impact has been key to improving my daughter's social and family relationships, as well as her ability to manage stress and anxiety. We are so grateful for Leslie! 

I consider myself blessed to call Angie my therapist.

I’ve never met someone who has provided me with so much insight and expertise. The love and compassion she has for her career and for providing therapy is something I get to witness in every session I have with her. I don’t know who or where in life I would be if it wasn’t for her. Truly life saving & life changing. - JM 

Angie is a great professional and incredible individual.

She knows the importance of building a relationship of trust and through that relationship she provides hope and the will to overcome adversities in the light of faith. Angie is so passionate and detailed about her work, it was a blessing to be with her and be guided by someone who truly cares. The most beautiful part is to realize that we are a much stronger family and that even those adversities do come with a blessing, proving that in fact all things that happen are good. Thank you Angie for being our Angel. - Jaime and Gisela Mendoza

Eden Therapy Co has really helped me with my struggles and helped me to become a better, happier person.

They are extremely kind and you can tell that they truly care about helping you grow. They put a lot of thought into their sessions and are great listeners. They are the perfect people to talk to when you need to vent, and provide excellent advice. Their support and guidance has brought me a long way in my mental health journey, and I am a much happier person than I was when I first started. They taught me some excellent coping mechanisms and strategies, and I don’t know what I would do without them. I cannot thank them enough for helping me through this process of finding my inner peace and achieving a much better mental state.
