I received my Masters in Social Work, Planning, and Administration from Virginia Commonwealth University have over 20 years of experience in the field of social work, advocating and serving people with disabilities in their community. I have extensive experience working with children and adults assisting them in both English and Spanish. I received my undergraduate degree in Studio Art from Mary Washington and also work as an accomplished artist. My love for art and social work is the focus of my practice. I work in the expressive arts and EMDR and am working towards certification in both. I believe in the healing power of art and its use in mental health recovery. Art allows us to bring about change inside ourselves and can support you as you move through your distress. I believe that recovery is always possible. If you are looking for recovery and change I invite you to reach out to me, be well.

I am currently accepting new clients via teletherapy. I have been practicing as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Florida for the past 22 years and am also a Licensed Therapist in Virginia, largely with a focus in the areas of depression, anxiety, thought disturbance, addiction, emotion regulation, relationship distress, and self-esteem. I feel many of the responses we struggle with are connected to a traumatic event (or perceived trauma) from the past. I am also a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and worked in the past with individuals of various ages across the Autism Spectrum. Currently, my primary focus has been in the individual/couples/relational therapy realm. I will encourage you to prioritize the areas you wish to address in therapy and tailor my approach on an individual basis. I believe in client autonomy so the areas that are addressed are the areas you want to address. I draw on several treatment modalities (including, but not limited to, Internal Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy) to allow you to further develop your strengths and help you meet all of your treatment plan goals at a speed that works best for you. I also have completed training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy as well as the Developmental Model for Couples and integrate both of these approaches into my relational therapy practice. Overall, I help you to see that managing the stressor is more important than just managing the stress as it will allow you to cope with anything that comes your way.

When your life ebbs it is like you are struggling against the current, and fighting your way through the current to grasp what is important to you. Perhaps the times you are flowing away are a result of relationship concerns, addiction, past trauma, anxiety or living with negativity. Like large rocks under the water, you may not be able to see them but they are creating obstacles in achieving your goals while potentially impacting both your health and well-being.

My name is Brytni Johnson. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) born and raised in Texas (always in and around "DFW”). I have been working with people: moms and dads; sons and daughters; brothers and sisters; even grandparents for as long as I can remember. I realized just over 12 years ago, I wanted to "help people." I wanted to become educated and trained; learn how to better explore and accentuate my natural skills, while also being able to understand and develop new skills to best assist my clients. In 2012, I graduated with my Bachelor of Social Work. In 2016, I graduated with my Master of Social Work. Shortly after graduating, I obtained my LMSW licensure, and have been practicing in a licensed, professional environment for the past 7 years. After obtaining my license, it was then, my "toolbelt" (yes, toolbelt) gained its first tool. From there, I began working towards building my clinical knowledge in order to obtain my clinical license as a social worker. I obtained my LCSW licensure June 2022; shortly after completing over 3,000 clock hours and over 100 clinical supervision hours.

Life can be hard and just "raggedy" at times. I know and I get it. For some, reaching out for help is the last thing you may want to do but I would love to walk with you on your journey to healing. Would you believe me if I told you that the answers you are seeking are already within you? I will merely be your guide and safe place to allow you to discover these answers. There is so much more in store for you versus the current narrative you have been rehearsing to yourself. I have a passion for “meeting people where they are” by providing crisis management, solution focused therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. I believe in providing quality services and working with those by addressing a wide range of issues including trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, poor self-esteem and stress management. I believe that therapy can assist one with identifying the root of recurring issues that challenges one’s well-being by developing healthy coping skills and gaining awareness.

Does the thought of therapy feel boring and pointless to you? Need someone who can help explain what is going on in you brain, how it impacts you, and practical ways to help deal with your challenges (anxiety, depression, OCD, ADHD, conflict, anger, addiction, men's issues, etc)? My name is Taylor, and I offer Neuroscience Informed Therapy that helps you become the meaningful person you desire to be. I am an integrative therapist, and like to use therapies like ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), which is the newer wave of CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), to help you build a new relationship with your brain, nervous system, and internal world. I love working with adolescents, young adults/adults, and families. As a Christian and Clinical Therapist, I have a unique capacity to help people who come from a Christian background, as well as those that do not. Spirituality can be very beneficial in therapy, but not everyone wants it to be included. When we begin we can determine what's right for you in your journey. Let's meet up and see if we are a good fit for therapy! If we are, we will set up good goals, go after them, and when we reach those goals we will transition out of therapy. In general, people do not need therapy for their entire life. So let's figure out what we need to do to help you and go after it.

You are experiencing feelings or struggles that don't seem to make sense. You feel like you "should" be happy, and able to do all the things, or that you "shouldn't" be stressed or worried because your problems aren't that bad. There are changes in your life, planned or unplanned, that are difficult. Things have happened that you've never been able to talk about. Maybe you are experiencing a COVID hangover? (Difficulty re-engaging in life in a way that is fulfilling.) Hi! I’m Gina and I specialize in empowering people to recognize that there are valid reasons why they feel the way they feel and do the things they do. I love to facilitate light bulb moments where my client begins to see things differently and realizes that they are not inherently flawed. Their thoughts, feelings, and responses make sense. I work with older adolescents and adults who struggle with anxiety, past or recent trauma, coping with transitions and changes in their lives, ADHD & depression. I take a strengths-based approach and focus on the whole person. I use a straightforward, down-to-earth approach to engage with my clients using strategies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and EMDR, to work toward overall well-being.
