About me

Life transitions can be difficult to navigate on your own. Sometimes you need someone to talk to.
Relationships, loss and grief, past traumatic experiences, and depression all bring emotions that can be
overwhelming. Over time, negative coping behaviors and destructive patterns may have developed and
now stand in the way of your goals and development. As a therapist, Neela is focused on
healing and personal growth.
Using an integrative approach to therapy, Neela will partner with you to discuss your intentions for
therapy, and together develop a treatment plan to reach your personal and emotional goals and
uncover new ways of thinking along with coping skills that can empower a positive change in you and
your life.
Neela draws from various techniques, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to challenge your
thought processes and find alternate behaviors; mindfulness, which creates a space to focus on your
emotions and thoughts without judgment; solution-focused therapy places an emphasis on your future
as well as your strengths, skills and resources; and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
(EMDR), which allows you to begin to heal from past traumatic events and heal psychological scars.
Neela has worked in an inpatient treatment setting for 3.5 years with a focus on women's issues. Neela has a MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and is a Licensed Professional Counselor with the Mental Health Service Provider designation (LPC-MHSP).

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Neela Johnson. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Neela Johnson is amazing at what she does. After three sessions I already had such a better handle on my anxiety and emotions. Working with her has been great I would highly recommend her to anyone especially those struggling with anxiety, and low self esteem. Neela helps me process through things in my mind, gives me a different perspective on my issues and is always gentle and understanding about meeting your emotions where you are at.
