About me

I’m a Christian based therapist licensed in Michigan. I specialize in Individual and Family therapy with over 5 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including (but not limited to) depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, and substance use disorder. I also help people who have experienced physical and emotional trauma and abuse.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines Cognitive-Behavioral, Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Strengths Based Therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

I believe you are the expert of your story and have many God-given strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. Together we will find a way to navigate change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Heather Johnson. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Heather has been incredibly attentive and respectful since our first session. She took the time to understand who I am and what motivates me so that she could shape therapy to better fit my needs. I felt lost and my mind was a jumbled mess before Heather helped me set goals and patiently took the time to discover the roots of my thoughts and emotions. So far, I have left every session feeling more hopeful for the future and equipped with more tools to cope. I would highly recommend Heather to anyone looking for a compassionate, patient, insightful, goal-oriented therapist.
