Angela Juister, Psy.D.
Psychologist in Northfield, Illinois
I specialize in providing comprehensive therapy for children, adolescents, and young adults, addressing a spectrum of behavioral and social-emotional needs. My approach is characterized by a nonjudgmental, diversity-inclusive, and strengths-based perspective. I obtained my undergraduate degree in Psychology with a minor in Spanish from Chapman University in Orange, California. Prior to pursuing my doctorate in Clinical Psychology at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology in Chicago, Illinois, I gained valuable experience in early education.
My diverse training background includes working in adult probation and juvenile detention centers, therapeutic day schools, private practice, and community mental health settings. While my theoretical foundation is grounded in psychodynamic and attachment-based approaches, I understand the uniqueness of each individual client. Consequently, I tailor my therapeutic approach to best meet the specific needs of each client.
Beyond traditional methods, I integrate my passion for dance, incorporating movement-based approaches to emphasize the mind-body connection in clinical work. I am eager to accompany you on your journey toward self-growth and acceptance.
