Ms. Johnson has a great and alot of experience. She has an amazing personality. It’s a joy being in her sessions.
I felt instant relief talking to Vielka. She seems to understand so much with what I have gone through.
An awesome woman first and an awesome therapist.
Very professional and attentive
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.
Very nice and understanding
Vielka understands my issues and is able to identify solutions and problems without me having to explain too much
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.
She’s is a great listener that s suggests multiple solutions. Her suggestions are practical and helpful. She makes you feel like you are talking to a trusted auntie.
Vielka is a true angel and I am so grateful for her support. She is helping me though my grief with such compassion. She also suggests helpful tools and ideas I would not arrive at on my own. I highly recommend her.
Thank you Vielka ❣️
Vielka is a very good listener and understands the need of her patients. Looking forward for future sessions and progress.
She is funny and gives the right balance of listening intently to you while guiding you to your truth.
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!
In just a few months Vielka Johnson has helped me become a significantly more mature person by helping me see my relationship trouble in a new light. My communication has improved and I better understand the aspects I was less aware of. This kind of growth is very important to me, and this therapy have accelerated it in a healthy way.
I love my therapist because I think she understands me and makes me feel comfortable.
Ms Vielka Johnson has been a wonderful therapist and has helped me through tough times I was going through. She listens well, gives excellent advice, and will have you do techniques to help what it is your struggling with. I highly recommend her as a therapist, it was a pleasure working with her. She helped me cope with the problems I was facing and see things in a clearer perspective. I cannot recommend her enough, thank you Ms Vielka Johnson. You have had a big impact on my life.
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 :)
