My Approach to Helping

My name is Angela Johnson, and I’m a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in Illinois, Maryland, and Florida and a Licensed Professional Counselor in Missouri. My philosophy of care is to provide the best possible care to clients in a safe environment. I will provide a therapeutic environment and begin to build a therapeutic relationship with the client to assist them with their issues and develop the necessary skills needed to work on their mental health issues to provide them with a more stable and balanced mentality. In a therapeutic relationship, the client’s needs are the main focus, and the client’s therapy is centered around their personal goals. 

My therapeutic approach varies with the client. I utilize CBT, solution focus based, DBT, Trauma-informed, motivational, and meditation. I work with young adults 18-25. I also work with couples and individuals. I work with the LGBTQ+ community. I try to make the clients feel comfortable and safe. I don’t want the client to feel like they are being forced to give answers to questions. I don’t want them to feel like they don’t want to be in therapy. I have always loved helping people. Growing up, my father was an alcoholic, so I grew up with someone that didn’t realize that they had an illness. After years later, when he got sober, I began to have an interest in helping others, and that’s where my career began.

As a therapist, it is my job to teach the client a higher level of functioning and healing and master new healthier skills. It is also my job to help the client to learn about themselves and come up with what is important and what is not important. My job is also to take that client towards increased satisfaction in life and contentment. In the end, I want the client to get that Ah-ha moment that lets them know that they can control their mental illness and not be judged because they have a mental illness.

During the first session, we will complete the intake assessment and treatment plan. I will begin building a rapport with the client and get to know them and what brings them to therapy.
