About Me

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 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 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 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.

Written by B.R. on Sep 01, 2021 after therapy with Angel for 8 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, coping with life changes, and adhd

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.
