Greetings and thank you for reading about me! I am a licensed professional counselor and a certified school counselor. I have 17 years of counseling experience. I offer a safe, non-judgmental environment. I work with you to to sort out the details of your life and provide appropriate resources to empower you.

However, on the rare occasion it takes me longer, I may be attending to other clients and or professional/personal responsibilities. I sincerely appreciate your patience. We are in this together; our therapy relationship would be a partnership. You have taken the first step by seeking therapy, let's begin our work on the journey to your healing process. You deserve to have the life you envision.

I have loved working with Ingrid. She encourages me. She catches the things I don’t say. She has helped me through a very rough time in my life
Ingrid takes the time to get to know you and listens attentively, offering positive solutions/suggestions to help guide you through. She’s been my therapist for over a year and I look forward to our sessions. Her unbiased perspective usually helps me put things in focus and helps me tackle situations with a well-rounded approach.
One of the best therapist I've ever had. Helps me with practical exercises to combat my anxiety and irrational thoughts. always available. Makes time for me to be seen even if schedule is booked.
I am so glad that I spoke to Ingrid, she let me vent my feelings and helped my understand my thoughts that was really confusing me. She guided me though journaling and worksheets about my boundaries. I feel like I'm a different person from what I was a month ago, feeling confident and happier. Thank you so much Ingrid.
Ingrid is patient, listens well, and challenges me to meet my goals that will satisfy God and myself. I am grateful to her!
Ingrid is wonderful. Very knowledgeable and caring. Because of her, I recommend BetterHelp to all my friends.
Ingrid has not only been a great listener but an amazing adviser for coping mechanisms. I look forward to my sessions and really admire her attitude. She gets a good sense of where I am when I start the session and provides tips for how to embrace my week. I am happy to continue moving forward with her as my counselor.
Ingrid has a great way of acknowledging what you're going through but then also provide practical tips and tools for you to manage your concern or struggle and learn from it.
2 sessions in with Ingrid has made me feel somewhat comfortable about opening up
Ingrid is kind, gentle and so helpful. She gives me great practical ideas and patiently listens to me ramble. I love that we pray at the end of each session.
Great counselor! She listens and provides great feedback and direction!
Mrs.Johnson is truly a rare gem. I cannot really explain it but she has a unique gift of making you feel whole again after experiencing bouts of hopelessness. Over the past year, there have been some times when I’ve held on a little longer while having depressed bouts, knowing that our upcoming scheduled appointment would completely give me hope and a more reasonable prospective to life’s stressors. I have trust issues but I know I can confide safely to her. She remembers details I ramble on about despite the fact I know she has so much more clientele. That itself speaks volumes of her character! There is so much more wonderful things I could say. I don’t think she knows this but I truly believe she has saved my life in so many ways. I am learning to have a more positive outlook on life . I am very blessed to have her as my counselor and would highly recommend her to others !
It's cheaper than Canadian Healthcare, and in my mind, its paid itself over a million fold with how Ingrid has helped empower and lift me up. She also did so while making me feel responsible for feeling empowered and being lifted up. Ingrid has helped me increase my confidence more than I thought possible. If I had Ingrid in my childhood I might not be as fucked up as I wound up. She takes a lot of care in helping me not feel that way anymore. I genuinely have great love and admiration for Ingrid. Everyone deserves an Ingrid.
Ingrid is a kind and supportive therapist.
The focus of the sessions has been maintaining a positive attitude and focusing on next steps. (Coaching)
I would say the drawback to this is that in a 30 minute session this can feel rushed, I wish there was more time to slow down and explore the underlying feelings / issues.
From our very first meeting I found it very easy to communicate with Ingrid. She brings a smile, an open mind and listening ear to our sessions. She actively listens to what I am saying without judgement and offers great solutions and methods for me to address my concerns.
Very happy with her expertise.
Patient, understanding, and wise! I feel very supported by my sessions with Ingrid.
We love her!
Ingrid has been an immense support for me. She is a very good listener, and is incredibly caring and compassionate. No matter your problems, big or small, she listens intently. Also, she has suggested many strategies and tools that have helped me immensely.
With Ingrid’s counsel and guidance I have been able to get through things smoothly that I would usually struggle with. And I’ve been able to succeed in ways I couldn’t imagine before. I’m very grateful for her!
Ingrid is a wealth of knowledge and she always knows JUST what to say to make the puzzle piece click in or the lightbulb come on. So grateful for her!
She's helped me through so much, I truly appreciate her.
Ingrid takes her time to fully listen. She offers multiple options to my concerns.
Good counseling with practical advice and homework to work on myself !
Ingrid has been invaluable in offering insights and technique to help me begin to overcome the thought distortions and behaviours that are working against me. I feel I can make the progress I need with Ingrid’s help.
Ingrid is a fantastic counselor. Very engaged and thoughtful listener as well as provides very practical solutions and recommendations. I would definitely recommend Ingrid.
Ingrid has been a lifeline over the past year. knowing that I have my weekly call and access to someone when at my lowest ebb has helped enormously not just with covid lockdowns but with other issues I have had. Thank you so much.
Ms. Johnson is VERY patient and understanding. I never feel like she’s judging me and she always listens so very well.
Caring. Compassionate. Good listener. Good at parsing through complex emotions to find the source of pain. Good at offering constructive feedback and action steps
I’ve only talked to Ingrid via messages but she is attentive, respectful and resourceful. Would definitely recommend her.
I have only just started online counselling. At first I felt anxious about it but Ingrid definitely makes you feel heard, valued and less alone so I'm so glad I took a step in counselling. I like booking my video sessions at the end of the week because she provides very positive insights about what I feel that help me reflect and prepare for a new week ahead! Thank you, Ingrid!
Listens to me and understands my point of views of what I'm going through. I'm able to figure out some of the answers to my problems during our sessions. Talking with Ingrid has given me the confidence to take control of my life.
She is easy to talk to and has a nice approach about her solutions. Makes me feel like things are doable which to be fair seem the case until it’s time to actually do them
Ingrid is the best councillor I have ever had. She is well balanced in her approach and a lovely human! I have really enjoyed
My time with her and feel improved because of it. Thank you. Ingrid.
Great listener. Respectful. Responds in a timely manner!
I really liked Ingrid because she is so understanding and challenged me to ask a lot of internal questions. She never judged and helped me in so many ways. Whether I was having an existential crisis, family issues or insecurities, she always had the right answers for me!
Ingrid's ability to build rapport is amazing. I have never felt judged by her. She is so supportive e and not phased by anything. She is teaching me to forgive myself ans it's something I don't know how to do. She has become a friend to me - thanj you ingrid
I have found Ingrid to be very helpful, kind and responsive. she has given me some good advice
In the short time with me working with Mrs. Johnson, I feel 100% comfortable- a rapport was easilyestablished. She is invested in my journey and make this change less daunting. Mrs. Johnson is accommodating to my needs. I would definitely recommend her services.
Ingrid is the most grounded n down to earth counsellor. She listens to every details of your words like a surgeon. I could never see myself the way she sees me, in a very positive way. She taught me alot of things that I have to reflect on, which I didn’t realise before. I am ever so grateful. Thank you once again. I hope this kind soul of a counsellor be absolutely blessed with all the good things in life.
Ingrid Johnson has been such a wonderful help to me the past month since I've started using better help. I highly recommend her. It's wonderful having an outside perspective to help me deal with the passing of my mom and the challenges of the covid 19 pandemic. I'm so glad I came across this place and was paired with Ingrid.
Monica is great. She is encouraging and helpful and made me think in the right direction. I felt 100% comfortable at all times. I am only switching because of her schedule + my time difference.
Thank you Monica.
She is always respectful of my issues, even when they are relatively petty, compared to struggles of so many. Consistently kind and non-judgmental, which allows me to discuss those feelings and thoughts I am ashamed of, which is a more effective strategy to address these than my previous strategy of ignoring them./pretending I did not have them.
Ingrid is very professional, approachable and gives off an energy of positivity. She responds in a timely manner and is very knowledgeable.
Ms Ingrid is very understanding. She encourages me to try and wants me to get better. She's easy to talk to and very kind.
MrsJohnson and gives great advice
Ingrid has been very understanding and patient with everything I've been trying to get across. When things get tough for me, I tend to be very long-winded and my thoughts are everywhere, but Ingrid helps by being very patient and really understanding while helping me try to figure out what's the core issues that are bugging me.
I’ve really enjoyed having Ingrid as my therapist so far. She really helps me break down problems and reach solutions more easily. She’s also really friendly and personable which I like!
Ingrid has been a great help by being a patient listener. She does her best to understand fully what I'm saying and she also tries to work with me to understand the deeper issues I have.
Ingrid has been a good fit for me. Glad I finally was matched with her. The skills she has suggested has help me get my anxiety back on track and stay focused while I work on my goal to declutter after moving. I would definitely recommend Ingrid. She's attentive and listens to your feedback.
Ms. Ingrid has been a blessing to me. She has listened to me and helped me articulate some of my deepest pain. She is kind and while very professional, has always made feel like family some how. I’m grateful for this app and what I have been able do in such a crazy season of my life.
Ingrid is a caring counselor. We have weekly sessions and she is extremely understanding, and very supportive.
I've only met Ingrid for my first counselling session and I can say she is very good at what she does. She was very understanding and gave me valuable advise. I'm looking forward to more sessions with her
Ingrid has been an absolute angel these past couple of months that i’ve been in therapy. She always listens and tries to give me the best advice possible while still respecting my boundaries. I feel very comfortable with her. She makes me feel like she cares about me and my life. I’ve always doubted therapy and whether it would help me feel better, but Ingrid is everything I want in a therapist and more. This therapy experience has been really great.
Ingrid is amazing and is always the one I turn to when I feel like my world is falling apart. This experience has helped my anxiety so much
I appreciate that she listens to me and truly makes me feel heard
Ingrid is amazing! She is the best therapist I have ever had. It matched me with her on the first try. I can’t wait to have our weekly talks. She listens when I need her to and gives the best advice when I need that. Since talking to her, I find myself having a better attitude in life, especially on therapy days!
Ingrid's inquisitive approach provided me with the ability to expose the deeper issues that I was unable to uncover on my own. I truly appreciate her kindness and care. Thank you!
Ingrid has help me find clarity with many issues and situations I'm concerned about. She gets straight to the point and highlights what I need to focus on instead of dwelling on what is not useful for me which sometimes you can't see for yourself. Ingrid also helps me on my journey of faith as a Christian and has also inspired me to use my creativity to create meaning in what I went through. Thank you, Ingrid!
When I first started counseling with Ingrid, I had the worst anxiety attacks and anger issues. Ingrid has shown me the greatest techniques on not only conquering my anxiety, but also finding the source to the anxiety. I am so happy to not only have a counselor to help me through my mental hardships but a person to talk to.
Ingrid is professional, understanding and offers great advice in a safe and non-judgemental environment. She has helped me through a very difficult time. Thank you.
Ingrid always responds to me promptly. I look forward to hearing from her. She is helping me greatly, and has given suggestions that I have put in place which have made my life easier. She gives me things to think about that maybe I wouldn't have without her. She is supportive and encouraging. I would definitely recommend her as a counsellor .
She has been awesome. She is a wealth of knowledge and support, and I always feel refreshed after speaking with her, and look forward to the next session. I feel comfortable to open up with her and that's obviously what you look for in a counselor. She is and was great match for me.
Ingrid Johnson, LPC, has been able to support me in one of the most transformative and precious times of my life. Helping me to stand firm in my core beliefs and morals and accept my choices and decisions. I feel a greater sense of honor and praise of who I am as a being. I am grateful for her support, presences, and her ability to help me accept what I desire for my life and to Go AFTER IT!
So far Ms Ingrid has been a true blessing. I have been reluctant to reach out for help for a variety of reasons until recently but Ingrid has been so easy to talk with and I feel comfortable unloading on her without judgement. My only regret is not reaching out for help sooner.
Ingrid is fantastic. Very compassionate and knowledgeable.
She has taught me how to love myself, which is helping me be a better wife, mother, and daughter.
Ingrid is easy to talk to and gives me helpful ways to manage my issues. She is patient and kind and makes it easy for me to open up.
Ingrid is a great listener and supportive counselor. She provided a safe space for me to express my thoughts and feelings about everything. I'm grateful for my counseling experience with Ingrid and I highly recommend her!
Ingrid is extremely professional, supportive and helpful. I walk away from every session feeling extremely hopeful.
I have found Ingrid to be very good and great for following up.
As someone who has chosen this site as their first experience in online therapy, I think Ms. Ingrid has given me a pleasant and comfortable experience. Like other reviews that mention her being very open-minded, non-judgmental and understanding, I can confirm this very well is the case!
Ingrid is awesome! She listens to me and has been helpful.
This is my first time seeking counseling and Ingrid made the experience less uncomfortable for me. Her willingness to speak to me about and listen objectively to things that might not be unsettling or stressing to others was a God send for me. I keep a lot of things bottle up as I don't want to burden others with my issues/problems/worries. But 2019 hit me with more than I could bear alone. Glad Ingrid was there to help me get back to the lighter side of things.
I like the fact that I have someone who I can write to anytime about how I FEEL low and I always GET very useful advice and reply from Ingrid, although she lives all the way in New York and I live in the Australian out back still feel like she's gives the right counseling.
Ingrid is friendly, knowledgeable, and understanding. She knows how to meet people where they're at. I am very happy with the help Ingrid has given me and highly recommend!
Mrs. Johnson is a wonderful counselor and a great listener. She's kind, respectful, and reminds me of that one aunt who you can always speak your mind to without judgment. Her suggestions always come from a place of "you're doing fine; how can we keep that up?" rather than, "you're broken; here's how you can fix yourself". And I appreciate that :)
Thank you for giving a different perspective and allowing me to express myself openly.
Ingrid is non-judgmental and kind, also very patient. She responds quickly and doesn’t rush you for a reply.
Ingrid has such a wonderful presence about her and I'm so glad that we were matched with each other. I feel as if I've met her in person- but we connected instantly and I am thoroughly pleased with the help I've received so far. I'm confident this journey will be helpful with her. Not only is she positive and open to listening, but her feedback is actually helpful and I am always looking forward to getting her responses.
She’s great! I’ve only had one phone session with her so far, and she has helped me immensely by understanding what I’m going through but also giving me helpful solutions in dealing with my issues. Highly recommend!
Ingrid has been incredible! She is so supportive and encouraging of my healthy behaviors and really helps me problem solve when I have a particular problem. I never feel judged, it’s always a safe space to talk about how I’m feeling. Thanks, Ingrid, it’s fantastic to have the extra support I need right now.
Ingrid is responsive, caring, and shows a genuine interest in her clients.
I’ve had a couple different therapist but Ingrid is very different. I like her so much she make me very comfortable when talking about my problems to her, she listens every details and helped me to overcome uncertainty and to decisions. She always follow up and send me msgs ask me how I’m doing even when I’m not active or no schedules for sessions. Very professional and friendly. I highly recommended Ingrid.
She listens and is wonderful with giving advice and is honest and so nice
I just love Ingrid. She is very knowledgeable and concerned about me and very easy to talk to. I always feel better after our sessions. She’s the best counselor that I have had.
Ms. Ingrid is great!
