About Me

Hi,

I'm Sandra Johnson, a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with more than 20 years of experience in the helping profession. I believe that nothing really happens by chance so whichever road that you traveled to get here is because you were already on a journey to wellness. I work daily to create an environment of holistic care that will hopefully assist you in finding your well place.

Among issues that I am able to address, but not limited to, that can interfere with current functioning include anxiety, depression, anger, stress, abuse, neglect, grief/loss issues, poor parenting skills, relationship issues, and boundary issues. I approach counseling from a cognitive-behavioral perspective. Patterns of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that interfere with present functioning are examined. Various other perspectives and strategies are used based on the client’s individual issues and needs.

Remember that wellness is an ongoing process. No matter where you are in that process it is always time for a wellness check. You may be in the prevention process or on your way to recovery as well as the hundred captions in between, but where ever you are in your process, I am here to help you assess, treat and continue the beautiful unfolding of your most well self.


I look forward to meeting you and to working with you as you continue on your journey to wellness.


See you soon!

Written by J.A. on Jun 16, 2022 after therapy with Sandra for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Sandra Johnson has been absolutely amazing with me. I have tried at least 6 other therapists before who I felt just weren't understanding or actually helping. I highly recommended her to all my family and friends, or anyone that you can use someone to talk to. She has a way of making me feel more positive and focuses on building that and properly correcting any habits I may have, and does all this with a calm tone and great smile. Thanks to her I've been getting better and better each week. Can't thank her enough!

Sandra has been a blessing. She taught me how to listen to my deep anxieties and fears, find the root of those thoughts, and reframe them in a lens to have more compassion for myself. Wonderfully open, kind, intelligent, compassionate, and engaged, she helped me to understand how important it is to practice self care and listen to my own needs. An extremely gifted and connective therapist. Also, she's just super enjoyable to have a conversation with!

Sandra Johnson is an available, compassionate, highly skilled and well-trained practitioner. She is personable, approachable AND you really believe that she wants you to find what YOU need to lead a productive and [mentally] healthy life. I also appreciate that Ms. Johnson, being a Black woman of a "certain age," allows for my sessions to progress [smoothly] WITHOUT the need to educate her on "cultural references" and "culturally nuances/norms"-------lived, shared experiences between the client and practitioner are very important in therapy. I highly recommend her services.

My therapy experience with Sandra is the best I have ever had!

Dr. Johnson is so professional, a true listener and a breath of fresh air. I’ve been seeing her for a few months now and before this had been searching for the right therapist and was close to canning the mission! I feel like I have someone to talk to, go over complex issues with and to really rely on through my therapy and healing journey. She spoke with me during one of the toughest points in life and has been an anchor for me as I rise away from those feelings and work on healthy coping mechanisms. If you are looking for a therapist that can truly feel like home and a helping hand, speak with Dr. Johnson!
