About Me

I am a seasoned Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Alabama and Mississippi. I have thirty years of experience motivating, communicating and advocating for Clients dealing with emotional issues. I use Client Centered and Solution Focus therapy approaches to assist Client.

As a Clinical Therapist my primary goal is to assist you in exploring and understanding the issues causing stress in your life. To help you explore choices and how you want to address the issues. My next goal is to assist you to move forward or learn to live effectively with the issues in a positive, healthy manner. It is not my job to solve or tell you what you need to do with your life.

My responsibility is to respect the choices you want to make.

I am proficient in Individual, Family, Crisis, Couples Counseling and Group Education to promote personal and social growth. Trained in effective communication, anger management and impulse control techniques, relaxation, social, emotional and functional living skill development.

I am Southern born and raised with an understanding of family and community. I believe in the inherent good of others and the ability to be positive and productive in addressing life issues.

She’s awesome! Keeps the facts facts and really helped me understand bad behaviours done by other people and why it happens.
I enjoyed talking to her and learning about effective relationship and it helps me to understand what I’m looking for in a partner, who I am as a partner, and where I want the relationship to go. Change and being open is key! Thanks Cecelia!

Cecelia Johnson is a professional and thorough counselor. She was able to dial into the problems that I wanted to work on right away, and she offered many different exercises and anecdotes to help me. She is respectful - and every one of her messages made me pause and reconsider what I thought I knew about myself, and think of new ways to change my behavior.

Cecelia is kind and patient, and helped me reconsider my thought processes. I really appreciated her giving me tools and frameworks to change the way I was going about things. She helped me learn to pause before I could start to spiral, and that made a massive difference. Her approach has been great for me!
