Therapist Cole Johnson is here to help

Evening and weekend appointments available

Do you find yourself worrying a lot or feeling tense or on edge and you don’t really know why? It might be a general sense of unease or muscle tension that causes you to lose sleep or lose your train of thought. Let me help you find freedom from worry and restlessness.
Anxiety can take many forms. Whether you deal with social anxiety, illness anxiety, a specific phobia, or panic attacks, anxiety and fear don’t have to control your life. Start taking control of your life today. You can have the freedom you desire.
Raising a family isn’t easy and each stage offers its own unique set of challenges. Whether you have children in grade school, teenagers, or grown children I am here to help you navigate whatever difficulties your family is facing.

You are so much more than just a diagnosis or a disorder. I help people who are feeling stuck and want to move forward to create a better life.

You are so much more than just a diagnosis or a disorder. I help people who are feeling stuck and want to move forward to create a better life.

You don’t go through life just to be plagued by anxiety, depression, panic attacks, or relationship problems and you don’t have to go through life with those struggles. 

My goal in counseling is to help you, your marriage, or your family flourish.

I’m not concerned with diagnosing you as much as I am with helping you achieve your goals of a better life. You are so much more than just a diagnosis. I work with people, not disorders.

My passion is to help give you the tools you need so that you won’t need me anymore. If you’re reading this then it’s likely you already know that something in your life or marriage isn’t what you want it to be.

When you come in to see me you’ll find a compassionate ear to share your story with as well as the expertise of a trained marriage and family therapist to guide your life or relationship back on course.

Take the next step.
