Natasha Johnson

(MA, LPC)

About Me

I have been fortunate to work with people in all stages across the life-span, as a counselor and life coach for 11 years. I have a B.A. in Early Childhood Education from Western Michigan University and have taught at the preschool and early elementary level. My M.A., also through WMU, is in Community Agency Counseling with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Michigan. I was blessed to offer counseling for elderly residents of long-term care facilities for five years.

Most recently I have combined my passion for helping people with my interest in multiculturalism. I am a certified diversity trainer with National Coalition Building Institute and have spent the last eight years working with international high school exchange students throughout every aspect of their program experience, from placement to support, throughout their program year.

I was thrilled to participate in Bennett Stellar University training in Neuro-Linguistic Proramming and Hypnotherapy in 2013 and have found the coaching skills gained there to be a tremendous addition to my counseling background.. My approach to counseling varies depending on the needs of the client and combines all aspects of my own background to work effectively with a diverse range of clients at all points in the life cycle.

My counseling style is warm, compassionate, and interactive. I use an eclectic blend of cognitive behavioral, solution-focused, and mindfulness techniques along with Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), hypnotherapy, and TimeLine Coachingâ„¢ to help you reach your goals. Together we will explore the messages you have absorbed from the world around you and re-frame the subconscious messages you give yourself so that you can find peace, happiness, and success.

I look forward to getting to know you!

Natasha is highly perceptive and dedicated. She is always compassionate and kind. She is very good with keeping the conversation light, but still honest. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a thoughtful, intelligent, and kind counselor.

I have had a good experience with Natasha. She seems very empathic and therefore understands where I'm coming from.

I have tried several counselors in my life-some traditional and some e-counselor -and Natasha is awesome! I love her energy and life-coach approach! She is experienced and really makes me feel at ease. I got more benefits from 2 weeks with her than 2 years with another counselor. I highly recommend her. She really listens and offers what is best for you as a whole individual and at whatever pace you choose. She is very responsive and great at getting back to you.

Natasha and I have had several sessions' worth of discussion in the last few weeks. She has been very kind and understanding, she listens to my feedback, and she seems very knowledgeable about how to help me.

Written by B.R on Nov 11, 2015 after counseling with Natasha for 3 weeks stress, anxiety, and depression

Natasha is very knowledgeable and easy to confide in. After our sessions I find myself wondering why I haven't done counselling sooner.
