About me

I'm Johanna Anderson, a dedicated and licensed therapist based in Georgia. My academic journey in the field of mental health began with a Bachelor's degree in Human Development and Family Studies from UNC-Greensboro in 2016, followed by a Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Lee University in 2019.

With approximately five years of experience in therapy, my professional path has been enriched by opportunities to serve diverse groups. My tenure at a community clinic and a college counseling center allowed me to support a wide range of clients, including young children, teens, parents, families, couples, and individuals. I've assisted clients in navigating a variety of challenges, such as anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, family and relational conflicts, attachment issues, trauma, and grief.

Understanding the daunting nature of seeking therapy, whether it's your first or fiftieth time, I am committed to demystifying the process and championing the courage it takes to embrace change. My approach is centered on empathy and collaboration, ensuring that you feel empowered and in control throughout your therapeutic journey.

I believe in the importance of building a balanced therapeutic relationship, where you can share openly in a space that respects boundaries and focuses on your goals. I view each client as the expert of their own story, possessing unique strengths that are key to overcoming challenges. Together, we can navigate the path towards peace and healing, reaffirming that you are capable of facing and overcoming the obstacles in your life.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Johanna. She has helped me tackle some major life changes while also managing my ADHD. From the first session, it was clear that she was deeply knowledgeable about both issues, and she helped me develop strategies for dealing with both in a holistic way.

One of the things I appreciate most about working with her is her ability to really listen and understand what I am going through. She is always patient, kind, and non-judgmental, and she has helped me feel comfortable opening up about my struggles.

I highly recommend her to anyone who is dealing with big life changes or managing ADHD – she truly is an expert in both areas and a fantastic therapist all around.
