Alexander Johnson has been an amazing therapist through some extremely difficult and confusing hurdles in my life this last year and really saved me from digging myself in a deeper pit. Easy to talk to and very receptive to my goals and finding steps to take in my path moving forward. Absolutely recommend him to others who see this and may be considering him as their therapist.

Alexander has been the most understanding and transparent I have been able to open up to as a counselor. I didn't feel judged or pressured to make any decisions and the communication is always open. I highly recommend him to any and everyone.
