Hi! My name is Billy. Are you struggling with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, stress, anger...or possibly all five? These issues are not uncommon and can be debilitating, especially when guilt or shame are added to the mix. But you can kick them all to the curb. All it takes is a willingness to change your perspectives. I've worked with thousands of clients (adults and children) who struggle with self-defeating beliefs that zap the joy out of life. And I've found that Hope and Purpose, along with healthy doses of Motivation and Creativity, crush inner demons. How do you find Hope and Purpose? It's not as complicated as you might think. We are made to help each other. We are made to communicate. We are made to have a positive impact. Sometimes, though, life attacks from all directions and leaves us feeling defeated. That's when we need help. I'm here to listen. I'm here to learn about your struggles and find ways to help you view them differently. And, who knows? I may even share some of my Blackstone Griddle secrets along the way. God Bless!

For more than a decade I have been counseling clients with a variety of mental, emotional, relational, and spiritual health struggles from a wide spectrum of personalities and life experiences. Each counseling experience brings challenges and victories. I consider it an honor and privilege to come alongside individuals or couples in need- to help in the healing process through processing trauma, identifying and replacing harmful and self-sabotaging patterns of behavior with restorative ones, providing mediation and advocacy, and offering compassion and accountability. I grew up in Ohio, but now live on a 17 acre homestead in the Ozarks with my wife of 17 years and our 6 children. My personal interests range from video games to lumberjacking. I have enjoyed the time and opportunity to work remotely and start a new chapter in my life with my family figuring out the homesteading chaos.

Steven Johnston CPC LPCC-S has been a clinical counselor for over twenty years, with special training in the areas of Pastoral Counseling , having additonal experience in treating victims of Domestic Violence ; Child Sexual Abuse; Trauma, workplace issues and Marital counseling. A graduate from Ashland Theological Seminary in 1988. Because Mr. Johnston did not want to exclude religious commitment issues from the therapeutic setting, he chose to pursue his Counseling degree from Ashland Seminary after graduating with ministerial degree from the Foursquare Church of the Gospel’s, Life Bible College East. He has continued to extend his Clinical Pastoral Studies through membership and training in the American Association of Christian Counselors. To avoid excluding an aspect of life that has shown to be of central importance to nearly two-thirds of the US population, Mr. Johnston has sought to integrate spiritual issues from a Biblical point of view in a way compatible with Biblical doctrine and Pastoral Counseling. This integration as it applies to marital, family and individual issues has been found to promote inner healing as it supports the client’s own religious coping skills.

I'm a social worker with over 45 years of experience with children, adolescents, families, couples and adults. I find that people get the best results when we look at their lives as a whole -- physical, emotional, intellectual, what many people call spiritual (your most deeply held beliefs and values, however you define them), and socially, as a member of your community (as you define that.) I have training and experience in a variety of treatments which are evidence-based. I can also do dreamwork and art therapy if this is something that is appealing to you, but I have to say up front that these, while very well known, do not have the same degree of corroboration as evidence-based practices. I have worked since the late 70s with survivors of trauma: physical abuse, neglect, sexual assault, and combat trauma. It has been one of the great honors of my life to have received the trust of so many who have endured trauma, and to have been a part of their healing.

Many people turn to psychotherapy or counseling for help with anxiety, depression, trauma, painful relationship patterns, feeling stuck, or sometimes just the feeling that something is missing from life. Sometimes we may not have the words to describe our feelings, struggles, or suffering. However, with insight into past relationships and experiences, many people can make progress immediately toward overcoming these difficulties and becoming more effective in their work and relationships.

As a professional mental health counselor specializing in treating anxiety and depression, I provide a comprehensive approach to help prospective clients manage their mental health challenges. My process typically begins with an initial consultation or assessment session, where I create a safe and supportive environment for clients to share their concerns and goals. I employ evidence-based treatments, particularly drawing from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which is a form of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). In my sessions, I guide clients through a process of accepting their thoughts and feelings rather than fighting against them. I help them identify their values and commit to actions that align with those values, even in the presence of difficult emotions or thoughts. During sessions, I may utilize various techniques such as mindfulness exercises, experiential exercises, and cognitive restructuring to help clients develop psychological flexibility. This involves teaching them skills to defuse from unhelpful thoughts, increase awareness of the present moment, and take committed action towards meaningful life goals. Additionally, I collaborate with clients to develop personalized treatment plans tailored to their specific needs and circumstances. I may incorporate psychoeducation about anxiety and depression, as well as teach coping strategies and relaxation techniques to empower clients in managing their symptoms outside of therapy sessions. My approach is characterized by empathy, non-judgment, and respect for the individuality of each client. I strive to create a therapeutic alliance based on trust and collaboration, where clients feel understood and supported in their journey towards improved mental well-being.
