“Change is the only constant in life”. Your job, age, environment, relationships, etc. are constantly changing. Often this change brings with it stress, anxiety, confusion, etc. It is so easy for a major life transition to unearth old wounds or magnify unhelpful patterns.

I desire to create a space where you can be authentic and assured that your vulnerability will be engaged with the utmost respect. My goal is for you to experience the freedom that comes through counseling and processing life circumstances together.

Hello! My name is Tara Johnson, LPC-Resident in Counseling, and I am a graduate of Walden University with my Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling. In my educational and clinical journey, I have found the Cognitive-Behavioral approach to be of great assistance; however, I am also aware that everyone is unique thereby requiring the addition of other therapies as warranted to my “mental health toolbox”. All theories incorporate an understanding of the desire to change one’s approach to a situation even if the situation continues to exist, let me assist you in the process.

Nothing excites and humbles me more than being given the opportunity to help others make a combination of small changes that result in a significantly improved quality of life.

I'm passionate about helping my clients navigate life changes and manage distress and other mood issues.
Are your relationships creating emotional strain on your day to day life? Is communicating, setting personal boundaries, and managing your mood an ongoing difficulty? Perhaps your headspace and sense of identity has been clouded by doubt, self-criticism, and regret, or maybe COVID has left you feeling disconnected with who you are and where you’re going. I can support you through these challenges and more as you grow, reflect, and become more empowered to live the life you want. In my counseling space, clients name their goals and what progress looks like, and they process their past and how it impacts them in the present.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with a background in research and evidence-based practices. If you feel as if you are not living up to your potential due to low self-esteem, unworthiness, or feeling like an imposter, please know that you are not alone and you can get through this. Especially if you have had a history of trauma, taking the first step to open up can be incredibly difficult, so I want you to know that I appreciate your willingness to engage in treatment.
I strongly believe in being authentic, honest, and real with my clients. I believe in meeting people where they are, and finding ways to help them get to where they want to be. Many have found their counselor to not fully understand them, or not challenge them. I connect with others by finding common ground, letting others' passions shine through, and creating moments of real, genuine care for one another. This includes challenging people to reach goals when they struggle with motivation. Those that I serve have a variety of real, valid problems. I utilize my role as a stepping stone in a person's path to better health.
