aschubert@brightsidecounseling.net| 720-923-2323

Dr. Angela Schubert is a licensed professional counselor in Colorado and Missouri. She has a doctoral-level education in counseling education and supervision, a master’s degree in mental health counseling, and a graduate certificate in gender studies. Her clinical training is primarily in eating disorders and sexual concerns, and her doctoral dissertation examined the prevalence and acceptance of aging sexual expression in nursing homes. She has experience treating adolescents, adults, and couples from diverse backgrounds and with a range of mental health concerns. Her primary interest is working with individuals with concerns related to body image, sexuality (the umbrella term), gender identity, intimacy, and eating disorders.

She wholeheartedly adopts the World Health Organization’s view of sexuality: “…a central aspect of being human throughout life encompasses sex, gender identities and roles, sexual orientation, eroticism, pleasure, intimacy and reproduction. Sexuality is experienced and expressed in thoughts, fantasies, desires, beliefs, attitudes, values, behaviours, practices, roles and relationships. While sexuality can include all of these dimensions, not all of them are always experienced or expressed. Sexuality is influenced by the interaction of biological, psychological, social, economic, political, cultural, legal, historical, religious and spiritual factors” (WHO, 2006a).

As such, she is greatly in favor of comprehensive sex education and views sexual wellness as a quality-of-life indicator for all humans. Her education and professional background in mental health and sexual wellness gives her a unique and effective approach to counseling.

Dr. Schubert is the President of the Association of Counseling Sexology and Sexual Wellness and co-leader of the interest network, Sexual Wellness in Counseling. She is also a professional member of the American Counseling Association and the Association for Counselor Education and Supervision. She is a board-certified member of the National Board of Certified Counselors. In addition to her licenses, she continues her learning by attending national and regional conferences, keeping up with current therapy research, and seeking supervision. She is working toward her certification in sex therapy from the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists and is supervised by Dr. Neil Cannon.
