I have only had two sessions with Vielka and already feel strengthened, encouraged, and empowered. I wasn't thrilled about opening up and has the fear of feeling judged but she made me feel like I was talking to my best friend. There was no judgment just compassion. She said in our first session that she cares and she does. Her words became action and that results in trust. Thank you, Vielka!

I have been in counseling before, but I must say that Vielka is by far the best I have ever worked with. She listens to what I have to say and she gives me very good advice. She isn't judgmental and is caring. I really appreciate the time we have together.

I have been helped tremendously by Vielka in the few months that we have interacted. She is very caring and helps you walk through negative thinking so that you understand how irrational your thoughts can be. I would highly recommend Vielka to anyone experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma and low self-esteem.

I had a very good faith walk talk with Mrs. Johnson. She gave some good questions to think about and reminded me a number of times that God 's love for me will not ever leave me. As well as guided me to take time and evaluate where my faith is at and what the means for my situation. I am always so grateful for the advice and guidance that I receive when meeting with Mrs. Johnson, as well as the encouragement that she always shares. I would recommend her to anyone who is struggling in life or their faith. She is full of wisdom to share.

Vielka was truly one of the best therapists I’ve ever had. I appreciate all of her help, she was kind, funny, and very understanding even when I accidentally slept in and missed a session. I recommend her full heartedly!

If there was any example of a saving grace, it’s Mrs. Johnson. Her wittiness and attention to the matter are what makes her stand out. Her cadence and professionalism help drive and instill a sense of trust and companionship only few can legitimately do. I’ve enjoyed my time with her, and she has helped me out tremendously in my quest for a better lifestyle. The cream of the crop, and a true professional. 12/10 would definitely recommend!

It was a pleasure having Ms Vielka Johnson as my Therapist for the 2 sessions. With her wise guidance, I was able to receive clarity and make important decisions and changes that were best for me and my life with ease and confidence. Highly recommend her as she listens deeply, is relatable, calm, has a great sense of humour that puts you at ease. I enjoyed our sessions and will return in future to see her if I ever need to again. - Jessica :)
