YES, there is a Nirvana; it is leading sheep to a green pasture, and in putting your child to sleep, and in writing the last line of your poem. Kahlil Gibran
About Heather

Heather J. Johnson, individual, family and couples therapistI work with individuals, couples and families. My approach to the therapeutic process draws from philosophies and models that value relationship, honesty, self-responsibility, direct communication and the connection of the mind, body, spirit and emotions.

I value direct, interactive relationships with my clients. Therefore, I take a dynamic approach with clients, believing that energetic interactions and feedback are essential to support learning, growth and transformation. I work in partnership with clients, paying careful attention to the clients’ concerns and specific needs.

I work with a variety of problems and concerns including, but not limited to: depression, anxiety, addictions, eating disorders, alcoholism, trauma, couple and relationship issues, family concerns, life transitions, weight loss and work stress.

I use a variety of therapeutic models committed to transformation by way of addressing the “whole person” – mind, body, spirit and emotions.  I nurture self-discovery through relationship, imaginative solutions and personal growth.
