KINGFIELD & RANGELEY - Angela Kristoff
is a clinical social worker who will be joining Mt. Abram Regional Health Center and Rangeley Family Medicine this Fall. Angela will be working closely with the medical providers to offer behavioral health services to patients of the practices. One of the program goals is to focus on the total person and assist patients at difficult crossroads across the lifecycle. This includes patients who would benefit from working with a trained professional in handling a new diagnosis, managing a prolonged condition, and many other factors that influence people’s overall wellness.
In 2006, Angela obtained her Master of Social Work degree from Temple University in Pennsylvania. Previously she graduated from Millersville University, PA where she obtained a Bachelor of Art degree in Psychology. She brings experience with adults and families in hospital and community settings. Her areas of expertise include adjustment to acute and chronic illness, palliative care, traumatic brain injury and stroke, and psychosocial aspects of aging.
Angela recently shared, “I look forward to joining the health centers in Rangeley and Kingfield because of the nature of interdisciplinary collaboration of the clinic staff and because of the staff's commitment to improving the quality of life of their communities.

The health center provides a full range of primary care and preventive services to 1,500 children, adolescents and adults from Carrabassett Valley, Coplin and Dallas Plantations, Eustis, Kingfield, New Portland, Stratton, and surrounding towns. In Rangeley, Angela will work alongside Dorothy Mosher, family nurse practitioner and Drs.
