About Me

Hello, my name's Jarod Johnson (JJ). I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor in the state of Texas with just over 6 years of experience working in a dynamic environment that has provided me with a broad range of opportunity to work with men, women, families, and a number of modalities that hinge on what I consider to be the most important aspect of my vocation...connecting authentically with people to work for the cessation of suffering. I say "vocation" because that's what the art of good therapy is to me and it's interwoven with who I am...it's meaningful and growth can be very satisfying even though it's uncomfortable at times. I've worked with people with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, to substance dependence, spiritual seeking, career challenges, and numerous other mental health needs. I also work with many people who have experienced physical, intellectual, sexual, emotional, and religious trauma.

My counseling style is what is often called person centered and I embrace an eclectic approach that I feel promotes collaboration with the people I have the privilege of working with. What this means is I find more progress when we work together on where the turbulence in your life is and decide together how to get to a place of refuge within and movement in your life. While I can't fully sum myself up here I can say that I'm also trained in Spiritually Integrated Psychotherapy, certified as a tai chi/qigong instructor, an EMDR therapist, and recovered addict. To me all of that means I feel confident that we can work well together on finding workable solutions that engage the soul, mature one's emotional experience, and generally enrich life.

If you're reading this you've probably already identified something that you want to address...even if it's that you "may" want to address it but just want to dip a toe in some solution to see how it feels. I honor the willingness to seek your best self, whatever that means to you. I'm open to walking with you in this season of that journey.

Peace be with you until we meet!

I couldn’t have asked for a better first councilor.

Very kind and helpful. Great listener even when I’m bouncing from topic to topic.
