Meet Angela "Angie" Matthews

Angela Matthews is a mental health professional and an educator with over 18 years of experience in law enforcement. She has a variety of experience working with all demographics of people. While she works with clients with all life problems and stressors, she specializes in trauma, grief/loss, moral injury, and PTSD. She has experience working with adolescents through adults and has been involved at all stages of the process -- from the initial crisis through healing. 


While serving the City of Lansing (MI) first as a police officer and later as a sergeant, Angela returned to finish her degree in sociology and communication at Western Michigan University before completing her Master of Social Work at Michigan State University. She worked as a mental health clinician prior to serving the City of Battle Creek Police Department (MI) as the inaugural crisis intervention team liaison. In this role, Angela cultivated relationships throughout the community and worked with department leadership to improve the policies and procedures for crisis response that included collaboration with community partners. She was the primary liaison between officers and mental health professions in ensuring that individuals and families were connected with the appropriate resources. Additionally, she consulted with command staff with the development of an officer wellness program proposal and departmental training. She served on several peer support teams in the capacity of an officer, sergeant, and clinician.


In addition to her service to the community, Angela has a wealth of experience in training, from her time training explorers to police academy recruits and her appointments as an adjunct instructor at Grand Valley State University, Kellogg Community College, Eastern Michigan University Staff and Command, and as an instructional aid at Lansing Community College. She has presented to college board members and law enforcement on best practices for death notifications and consulted with local law enforcement on the implementation of mental health professionals in the response to targeted violence and mass casualty incidents. 


Her commitment to access to mental health has resulted in a successful private practice where she tailors treatment to individual needs. She is trained in EMDR, CPT, and several other trauma-informed practices. Angela is committed to fostering openness, respect, and understanding to create safer and stronger communities to normalize individuals seeking and obtaining the services they need to thrive! Angela will work with you to identify what your goals are and discuss options on how to navigate obtaining them while detailing treatment modalities that would be most beneficial. She will work to tailor treatment to fit the person because no two people are the same, the way we heal should not be expected to be the same either!
