I actively work as a School Social Worker in Illinois. I am a LCSW in Illinois and Indiana. Prior to the COVID crisis , I worked as a subcontractor for providing home based therapy to children, adolescents, and adults. Working in the school realm has provided me with the opportunity to be a crisis interventionist, a change agent, and a community liaison. Yet working as a therapist allowed me strengthen my case-management skills, utilize various interventions, and individualize treatment for each client served. Abandonment, neglect, abuse, trauma, depression, anxiety, undiagnosed mental health disorders, domestic violence, and substance abuse are some of the challenges faced by the clients' I have served.
I believe in the importance of building a rapport, setting boundaries, and developing a therapeutic alliance. I am a great listener, genuine, and empathetic to my clients' needs.
I was born to be a Social Worker! I do not take the calling on my life to help others for granted. I am so excited to take this journey with you. I believe that remote treatment is going to revolutionize mental health.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, Eating disorders, Parenting issues, Self esteem, Bipolar disorder, Coaching, Compassion fatigue

I had to step away from therapy for a while but I came back and I am so happy I did because Angel is my favorite! I have raved about her to others!

Angel has been an invaluable source of support during my journey through grief after losing both my mother and father. Her compassionate and understanding nature created a safe space for me to explore and process my emotions.
Additionally, Angel's guidance and expertise have been instrumental in helping me cope with postpartum anxiety and depression after the birth of my first child. Her holistic approach and genuine care have made a significant positive impact on my mental health.
I highly recommend Angel for anyone seeking a compassionate and skilled therapist.

I have had 2 sessions with Angel. She is professional, empathetic and allows me to speak and to come to my own conclusions. She’s like the voice of reason or a sounding board. I appreciate her guidance and feedback

Angel is very easy to talk to. She does a very good job listening and relating to you. I really appreciate her insights. She is very good at being supportive while also asking questions to help you explore your thoughts and feelings in a different way than I normally do.
