Russell has been great! He has helped me recognize things that are hurting my progress in life. I can now make conscious efforts to overcome these phobias i have. I would love to continue sessions; Ijust can’t afford them right now.

Written by M.I. on Jan 27, 2021 after counseling with Russell for 2 weeks on issues concerning family conflicts

Russell is well informed and has very good insight to issues that are too close to recognize myself. I’m very grateful for his direction and support.

Written by C.H. on Sep 24, 2020 after counseling with Russell for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem

I was a mess and close to the bottom when I got the courage to seek help. Mr. Johnson is very supportive, has offered practical advise on how I can help myself, and helped me to overcome the fear and feeling of weakness that I had in seeking help. The recommended materials are relevant. He has helped me to see that it’s not ok to be miserable and that I deserve to feel better.

Written by L.A. on Aug 13, 2020 after counseling with Russell for 2 weeks on issues concerning family conflicts, and grief

Mr. Johnson helped me work through the first few weeks of complicated grief surrounding the sudden loss of one of my parents. I didn't know what to expect going into this, and I was a bit skeptical. I'm very glad I took the chance on therapy and was matched with Mr. Johnson. He was able to get deep into the root of a lot of what I was dealing with and help me see things from a very different (and helpful) perspective. He also gave me some books recommendations and handouts/resources to read, and some homework to do, to help me work through things between sessions. Very grateful for his skilled guidance, help, and support.
