Hi! Samantha Johnson, QCSW, LICSW. I started into counseling when I was just a youngen’, so now I have 14 years of experience! But don’t worry, I am not too old to understand. I work with people who are suffering. I understand how difficult life can get and want to do anything I can to try to help you find better days. I have worked in ‘discrete addictions programs’ to community mental health and few in between. I have been trained in Gestalt, Motivational Interviewing, Play Therapy, Reality Therapy and CBT. My approach is simple, where are you? And where do you want to be? Then is it just figuring out how to reach those goals.

Wouldn't you agree that good healthy relationships are one of the greatest joys in life? When our relationships with those who are most important to us are going well, life seems at its best. But these relationships can become broken and cause us pain. Relationships take time, effort, careful handling and real love. The good news is relationships can heal, and there's help to get you there. As a marriage and family therapist, I most enjoy helping couples and families navigate life's challenges through learning new skills to get to the relationships they desire.

Is your teen often withdrawn, depressed, or angry? Failing at school, acting out at home, causing you sleepless nights? I know it's hard to see your child hurting when they refuse to tell you why. You fear the worst. Parenting was easier when they were small. Kids today are dealing with their feelings in ways that create more problems - self harm, drugs, bullying, sexual pressures are all too common. You're afraid, and I'm here help your child and family deal with the difficult emotions, and unhealthy choices spurred by peer influences or poor judgment. There is hope.

I specialize in working with adults and couples who struggle with building and maintaining healthy/happy relationships. Many of my clients feel a lot of pain in their romantic and/or familial relationships. Some clients feel unsupported, unappreciated, or invalidated and struggle with communicating with their loved ones. Others feel unsafe with their partner because of their own past trauma, anxiety, or depression. Some of the individuals I work with have been diagnosed with ADHD or have a partner with that diagnosis. They may have a difficult time connecting with one another and understanding each other's experience.

We will not try to make you do what somebody else wants you to do. We start with your goals & find ways to help you develop the necessary skills. We have found that, if a person's individual wishes are not represented in the solution, it will not work in the long run. So there is a strong emphasis on helping each person take responsibility and control over their own happiness. Some things are better handled individually, and some things are better handled with both people in the room. Our unique blend of individual & couples therapy is quite effective.

**Not Accepting New Clients**When life gets busy, it is easy to wake up and find yourself not where you expected to be. I help people reconnect with themselves and in their relationships- whether this is healing from an affair, finding the spark again, to figuring out what makes you feel happy and alive. I believe that we can heal from hurt and live a life we love, but we must reconnect with ourselves and others in order to find peace. I also enjoy working with woman who are pregnant or postpartum, as this can be an overwhelming, yet exciting time in life.

*Currently not accepting any new clients* Strong and supportive relationships are the cornerstone of a healthy life. We need connection with others in our lives. When things are going well with our partners, we feel seen and wanted by our partners. When the relationship feels off balance, feelings of frustration, helplessness, and isolation can overtake the relationship. If you are struggling in your relationship, know that you are not alone. Together we can work to try to make sense of the feelings you are experiencing and figure out what you want for yourself and your relationship. Let's restore & heal together.
