    Angela Serritella, LCSW, CADC

    Do you ever have those days where things are especially difficult and you just want to throw your hands up or get away from life for a bit??  Many of the people Angela works with struggle with mental health, substance use, and regulation from traumatic events.  Angela has worked for FJ Psychological Services since 2017.  She received her Masters in Social Work from Dominican University in River Forest IL in 2004.  She is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for the states of Illinois and Tennessee.   She also has been a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor for over twenty years.   She has worked within residential, group home, and nursing care.  Angela has worked with people of all ages and populations, but especially enjoys teenagers and young adults. She is a firm believer in optimal health and the connection between physical and mental wellness. 

    Angela finds it a privilege that people from all walks of life feel comfortable and trust her at their most vulnerable times.  She believes in meeting clients where they are at in life, providing encouragement without judgment and giving them hope that things can, and will, get better.   She approaches each session with the intent of making clients feel comfortable and ready to establish a trusting relationship before diving into issues that are a source of angst.  She also has a Therapy Dog that comes into the office on occasion! When Angela is not at the office, she is usually out with her three kiddos or hiking with her two dogs Leona and Remi, and traveling around the country on Jeep adventures.
