Therapist in New Port Richey, Florida Deborah Johnson, LMHC

Deborah Johnson, LMHC

Many of us, at some point in life, experience overwhelming and unpleasant feelings, such as persistent sadness, anxiety, grief, anger, loneliness, or stress. These may be the result of trauma, problems in relationships, workplace issues, loss, major life changes, grief/loss, conflicts, or unconscious/conscious self-defeating beliefs. However, no matter what has happened to us, we all have an innate ability to grow, to process, and to change. The fact that you are in this platform looking for help is already a great first step towards your healing process. I would very much like to help.

I am a Licensed and Board Certified Mental Health Counselor with over ten years of experience working with people from a wide variety of backgrounds and from all walks of life. I am particularly skilled at and specialize in working with individuals who have experienced trauma, domestic violence, women’s issues, grief/loss, life transitions, elderly challenges and relationship issues. My clinical skills include helping people experiencing anxiety, depression, abuse, mood and adjustment disorders, self-esteem issues, care-giver stress, panic attacks, PTSD, Bipolar, and ADHD/ADD. My main mode of therapy is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I also offer the option of psychotherapy from a faith-based, Biblical/Christian perspective. Together we work not only toward developing healthy coping skills, but toward healing for a sense of purpose, contentment, and peace.

As the cornerstone of my approach, I believe that unconditional support through the therapeutic relationship provides a strong foundation for this journey. This support is often missing from our lives and when we start to experience things like depression or anxiety that journey becomes even harder to travel alone. If you are feeling stuck or dissatisfied with your life, starting therapy can be the first step to creating change.

I take a calm yet effective approach to therapy, believing that when a client embarks on a therapeutic journey, it can be life changing. I always seek to create a warm and nurturing environment where you can feel safe and protected. It is my goal to help you live and love your life by developing the insights and tools necessary to overcome whatever difficulties you experience. I actively listen to you with compassion and understanding as you share your story and your concerns. My approach is growth and healing to meet your individual needs. This is your journey toward greater self-awareness.
