She is wonderful! She lets me talk and say what’s on my mind and uses that to guide our sessions. She messages me throughout the week to check on me and she responds very quickly. She is awesome!

Johnna does an amazing job of being relatable and relaxed during the therapy sessions. She is easy to talk to and makes you feel listened to. I appreciate her nonjudgmental approach to the therapy process. I always look forward to our sessions each week!
