About me

Hello. I have practiced in the healing arts for the past 12 years helping people develop a clearer mind/body connection. I embarked on a career in counseling 5 years ago to help people strengthen their connection with themselves. I view the counseling process as an alliance between client and therapist and considers the client as the experts of their lives. Within the structure of the therapeutic relationship, clients can access their inner strengths and promote change. My theoretic approach is based on the belief that clients oversee their counseling experience. They will learn the aspects of their life that they can control and what they cannot. Clients will understand that the therapeutic relationship is a partnership in which they will be expected to put in the effort for homework, be accountable, and present within counseling alliance. My goal as a counselor is to provide a safe environment where we can explore your primary interests, develop goals, and determines strengths and assets as you move toward your aspirations.

I earned a M. Ed. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Clemson University, in Clemson, SC. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) , Psycho-Educational Therapy, Client Centered Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy. My areas of specialized training and expertise include anxiety, depression, adjustment in the wake of divorce, survivors of trauma, and people in recovery from alcohol and drugs. I have formal training in co-occurring substance abuse disorders.

Rhonda was wonderful! I loved working with her. She helped me through a lot of hard times and also was there to just talk if I needed. She told it like it was and helped me work though my anxious and depressed thought. I am grateful to have worked with her.

Rhonda was really great to work with. She helped me with many internal struggles and negative self talk I was having to myself. She gave new prospectives and ways of looking at a situation. I appreciate all of her help!

Rhonda us the best therapist I've ever had

Written on Oct 17, 2022 after therapy with Rhonda for 2 months on issues concerning depression, family conflicts, grief, career difficulties, coaching, and adhd

I came to BetterHelp after a year full of traumatic events beyond my control. I was spiraling into panic and depression. I've worked with several therapists in my lifetime, but Rhonda is the absolute best one I've ever found. She doesn't buy into my BS, while simultaneously being incredibly affirming and supportive. I now have the tools I need to keep my head on straight and to stay in the present moment. I cannot recommend Rhonda Johnson more highly!

Rhonda was very helpful at allowing me to process my emotions that I have buried for a long time. We discussed the suicide of my mother and difficulties I have faced being a mother myself. She recommended books that I found to be very helpful, and helped me to communicate better with her what I was feeling. She is very easy to talk to and gives great and practical advice. I would highly recommend her!

Rhonda is a fantastic therapist. She listens, she’s compassionate and really digs deep to the root of the problem and guides you for long term solutions. She’s gives you tools to use that are practical and useful. She really is wonderful and I’m so glad I was matched with her.

Written on Apr 14, 2022 after therapy with Rhonda for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and sleeping disorders

Rhonda was the best therapist I have ever had--she was what I needed at the time I needed her. I was suffering from anxiety and couldn't escape the racing thoughts. She helped me understand the voice inside my head, and provided a lot of practical solutions. She provided me with reference materials and actionable items. I got to such a great place, I was able to move on after 5 visits and feel really good about where I'm at. I know I can always return if things change. Thank you Rhonda for everything! I'm ready to stay in my circle of control and stay where my feet are.

10/10 Will recommend Rhonda to anyone seeking therapy. From our very first session Rhonda gave me so much help and together we built a foundation for my therapy experience. I left that first conversation feeling so good and made progress thereafter! She came to our conversations very open, kind, considerate, and asked me what my therapy goals were. Throughout our time together, she listened to me, allowed me to vent and provided actual solutions that helped me in my day to day. I enjoyed our time together very much.

I have been so grateful to work with Rhonda. She has brought a professional perspective with an empathetic approach that I’ve needed. I was looking forward to starting therapy before I was matched with Rhonda, but she is a factor in why I look forward to sessions. She is a great active listener, she remembers key points and smaller details, and she is easy to talk to.
