About Allison Johanson, LCSW
  
I believe that while I am an expert in the field, you are the only expert in you. Because of this belief, I encourages open and honest communication throughout the therapeutic process. I will ask questions, and encourage open communciation.  

I like to know what to expect, so I try my best to explain the steps of the process so that you too can understand what to expect .
While therapy is often a very serious process, I welcome humor and authenticity where it is appropriate. Sometimes you might even hear a few 4 letter words, feel free to do the same.

I hope to make this process as comfortable as it can be and understand that it's impossible to make it completely comfortable. Heck, I am uncomfortable when I go to therapy, and I am a therapist. 

 You can expect me to utilize my expertise, sense of self, and genuine caring for my clients in order to be the best therapist I can be.

I have practiced in the field for over 10 years and am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I obtained her Master’s Degree in 2009 from University of Denver.  I established my private practice in 2014 after working in community mental health for over 5 years. I was trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) by Behavior Tech Institute in 2014. I am level 2 trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and was trained by Chandra Nagireddy in 2016. I am also a Licensed Addiction Counselor (LAC) obtaining this license in 2013. I continue to receive training and consultation and believes in constant growth as a therapist.

I love to be outside. When I am not practicing therapy you can find me trying to look good golfing, playing with my kids at a park or pool, biking, hiking, or finding some way to soak up sun rays. If you want to take a theraputic walk, let me know, I will jump at the chance. 

Does this feel like a good fit for you? Contact me and set up a free consultation.
