Abby Johnson LMSW LCSW

The capacity to be with people in the moment while they share their burdens is what I am most passionate about.  I desire to walk alongside of women dealing with emotional pain and suffering who could benefit from processing their emotions in a supportive environment.  Life comes with challenges that we are not meant to face alone.  Finding a therapist that you connect with can bring hope and healing.  The first step in getting the help you need is reaching out and I would be honored to be a part of that.  I approach my clients with an open mind and am accepting of where you are in your journey.  As someone who has clinical experience in a variety of settings, I am able to empathize with people from all walks of life.


In my free time I enjoy reading, cooking, baking, watching HGTV, exercising, and spending time outdoors with my family.



Although I have worked with people in many different situations, I have particular experience and interest in walking with women in the following areas.  That being said, I would love to get to know the unique nature of your story.

Grief and Loss
