About Me

Greetings! My name is Dr. Tanika Johnson, and I have been in the field of education and counseling for over a decade. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Mental Health Service Provider, National Certified Counselor, and Mental Health and Wellness Provider. To add, I am a firm believer of the prevention and treatment of psychosocial impairments and disabilities. I specialize in alcohol and substance abuse and chemical dependency, addictions, trauma, sexual assault and human trafficking, domestic violence, crisis and behavior health interventions, anxiety, mood disorders, anger and impulse control, and self-management coaching. Additionally, I have a wealth of experience serving the special education community and the exceptional needs of children, adolescents, and adults with disabilities. My counseling style encompasses cognitive behavioral therapy, reality theory and choice therapy, and existentialism. I uphold the belief that human beings have the basic needs of empowerment, love and acceptance, freedom, pleasure, and survival. Feelings of dissatisfaction and inadequacy can be combated with the right supports. In my spare time, I enjoy canoeing, traveling, internet surfing, dining out, and spending time with friends and family.

Dr. Johnson has become a great support system. She always there for me even if we are not in session. I can count on her no matter.
She has tremendous insight and really gets me. An excellent communicator. Gives me insight to ponder on. She is professional yet very real. I feel comfortable smiling and laughing with her. And to me that matters significantly.

Great counselor. Tanika always makes sure that she is addressing you concerns. Also, she provides a ton of resources and exercises for you to complete on your own. Great experience.

I would recommend Tanika to anyone. She really listens, really empathizes, and is really supportive and understanding. I've come a long way, and I have dealt with bullying, depression, anxiety, work stress and very bad interpersonal experiences in the past. I had no idea that a lot of it was identified as trauma! I had issues I had a hard time explaining and when I did, Tanika showed understanding and support that made me cry a little at times, and made me understand why I had a hard time in my life, and showed me a way in which I could get back my happier, confident self back. After having sought out BetterHelp and with Tanika's counseling, now my closest friends and family have seen a difference in me and said that they were happy to see me happier. Tanika has really heard me out, provided support and insight, as well as provided good practices for me to incorporate into my daily life. She will work with you at your pace, no matter where you are in your life.

Tanika is an exceptional therapist, she is insightful and has helped me see issues from different viewpoints that is helping me grow to be a better person. She is so supportive, she really cares. I have been a terrible alcoholic for many years and Tanika offered me support and insight to move forward in my life without alcohol. Thank you Tanika!

My counseling ended temporarily on Sept 20th so unable to message her directly right now, but am looking forward to working with Tanika again very soon. May God bless Tanika for her kindness.
