Life can often be difficult and emotions can feel overwhelming. Sometimes it feels like the rug has been pulled out from underneath us. Maybe an important relationship has ended, you have a loved one struggling with substance use or you would like to learn to navigate boundaries in your relationships with family, friends or a partner. Whatever it is that has lead you here, I'm glad you are reaching out. I hope to provide a space to you that honors your story and facilitates personal growth. I believe that each of us deserve to find healing and that includes you. Asking for help can be one of the bravest things we do.

Holly Johnson is a psychotherapist specializing in deep therapeutic healing work. Using her 15 years in the field to grow and evolve her practice, she now uses a highly intuitive, integrative approach for helping people to heal and transform old patterns into healthy life patterns. Why do deeper work? Without knowing, most of us have experienced trauma and negative conditioning in our childhood, and beyond. Usually it goes unrecognized if it does not "qualify" by our learned definition of trauma. Yet our unique patterning from our early experiences will be how we currently relate with the world.

If we work together, our conversations will be directed at finding what will work for you. You will bring your life and it's stories, what is working and what you have thought might be done differently to move you in a new direction. You will define what is important for you and set the pace with which your work moves. I will bring to the conversations my genuine curiosity, my 46 years of experience and observations of what others have done in situations similar to yours; my willingness, knowledge, skills and energy directed at guiding you toward your goal(s).

Life is full of challenges. Some challenges are easier to tackle and we might even welcome them. Yet, other situations are difficult to manage and we may not be sure how to move forward. As a psychologist, I specialize in helping those with whom I work to make sense of their world and the challenges we often face. I place particular emphasis on how each of us constructs our diverse perspectives and the ways we interact with those around us. I value the strengths of each individual and work to facilitate self- understanding to enhance the quality of their life.

I realize people come to counseling for what appears to be a million different reasons, but ultimately people come to counseling because they are in pain. There are times when a loved one is struggling, and a family, couple, or child requires extra support. We all face painful changes in life such as loss or illness, divorce, conflict, addiction, self-worth, and identity issues. There are times when these changes also bring up issues from the past and counseling can help. I want to help you cope well and live according to your values and aspirations. Counseling is about improving your quality of life and instilling hope.
