About Angela Lee

AngelaI’ve been a Floridian most of my life.

I was born at Tyndall Air Force Base in Panama City, FL. My dad was in the Air Force, as was my grandfather. I was taught the importance of hard work and integrity very early. I knew when I was young that I wanted to help others.

Northwest Florida has always been very near and dear to my heart. I was living in Panama City when Hurricane Michael caused devastation to NW Florida. My son and I stayed in a shelter along with the nine residents of the mental health residential program I supervised. I experienced firsthand the importance of a community pulling together to help each other through a catastrophic event.

I wholeheartedly believe in family.

Family traditions and togetherness are vital to healthy living. One tradition I remember is family meals. I grew up with my family getting together around a great home-cooked meal regularly. We could put our busy lives aside for a good meal and fellowship.

To thrive in life, everyone needs some support. Support and togetherness are integral for healthy living, whether from your immediate family or good friends. Families come in all different shapes and sizes. I recognize that some people do not have supportive families. For some, their families are the cause of trauma and stress.

I have created an atmosphere in our office where everyone is treated like ‘family.’ You will receive a warm welcome every time and leave feeling safe and secure in the treatment you are receiving.

Some of my education and experience…

I received my undergraduate degree in psychology from Florida State University and my master’s in clinical mental health from Troy University.

I started my career in early childhood education, directing several childcare centers and serving as a mental health specialist for Head Start.

While working on my master’s degree, I worked with families with open child welfare cases. I taught parenting skills and provided counseling on such issues as domestic violence.

I also have a wide range of experience helping those struggling with substances. I have experience working with those suffering from severe and persistent mental health issues in outpatient and residential settings.

My most recent experience before opening my therapy practice was as a social services supervisor at an inpatient psychiatric facility.

This is what took me on the road to becoming a therapist…

Raising two children with emotional and behavioral struggles inspired me to change my career from early childhood to mental health.

From personal and professional experience, navigating the mental health system is difficult, so I wanted to help others get the help they needed.

I can educate other professionals on treating individuals with respect and dignity in my practice. I make sure that everyone at Bright Future Behavioral Health receives person-centered care.

When I’m not doing therapy…

I enjoy spending time with my children and grandkids. Whether playing Barbies with them or basketball, I cherish these moments. My grandkids keep me young at heart.

Many people are surprised to know I have 15 bunnies I care for. They are my emotional support animals. Rabbits are very loving and provide lots of cuddles. They love it when I bring them carrots and eat them from my hands.
