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 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.

Angel is really great! She is a wonderful listener a bit intimidating at first but her energy is warm and straight forward. I appreciate what she asks and gives me a lot to think about and validates my feelings. I just love her.
