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.

Angel is great, I feel like we connect really well and she continuously helps me to address my needs with her regularly provided support.
One of the best therapist I’ve ever encountered.
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.
Angel has been an angel in my life! She's been super supportive, a great listener, and tells me the hard truths I need to hear which I appreciate.

Angel gets right to the point! She is compassionate but tells you what you need to hear to start to heal. She has a great laugh that makes you comfortable to talk with, and is so human it feels like you can talk to her like a friend!
Angel is very helpful and her questions have already helped me to think about my mental health in a new way.
Angel can take my tangled “mess” of feelings untangle them and articulate them back to me so that we can sort them out together. She supports me and gets me when I feel like I don’t have anyone else to unburden myself to. She’s literally a life saver. We have a lot in common so she understands my struggles.
Angel is great. She is thoughtful and compassionate. She has clarity in her responses and feels like an advocate for me while challenging me.

we reconnecting but I feel more better knowing it someone willing to listen to me.
Angel is always a listening ear. Challenges me to see my progress and areas I can continue to grow . I always feel safe to express my ever changing feelings.

Angel has been my angel. She has been attentive, supportive, and helpful in helping me cope with the death of my parents and the stress of my work. I am glad and fortunate to have Angel as my therapist.

She is amazing. So easy to talk to. She keeps me on track of my goals.
Angel Johnson has been such a great therapist. She always seems to understand exactly what I'm feeling. She listens well, asks great questions, and seems invested in me, and really cares. She doesn't overwhelm me, and encourages even the smallest progress. I really feel I was matched well with her.
I’m very pleased with the sessions I had with Angel so far. She was able to untangle the clump of my thoughts and walked me through the measurable path of processing them in an effective manner.
Angel is a patient listener and gives great advice. I’m grateful to have been matched with her!
Angel is literally an Angel in my life. I started BetterHelp in a very low place where I lost what I thought was everything in my life. I know the first month I didn’t always see eye to eye with her words and exercises but keeping an open mind I have grown and learned so many new and valuable things that have changed my perception on life forever. I would not have even an ounce of the confidence and strength I have today without her. Her techniques and questions she’s used and asked me will stick with me about how I think of every job, every relationship and every new beginning in my life and I am forever grateful to her. I highly recommend her and BetterHelp to anyone. Everyone needs someone like her in their life.
Angel is a great counselor, and she doesn't give you the distant feeling therapist vibe, conversations actually feel natural.
Angel was patient in hearing the interpersonal issues I was dealing with, and provided personal knowledge to relate to me as well as techniques to better my mental health. I hope many others will choose her for counseling as well!
Pretty attentive when listening. Seems genuinely interested to help resolve some issues.
Angel is really nice and attentive to my needs as a patient. She knows how to ask good questions and will point out things for me to consider. I would highly recommend her if you're seeking help with addictions or general care.
Angel provides a calming and accepting atmosphere which promotes trust and security from the individual being counseled.
Very attentive & caring. Makes me feel comfortable sharing things about my life
