Nancy Johnson (she/her)

Accepting Clients

My expertise is relationships, whether with others or with the self. I work from an existential/relational lens.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Wellesley Hills, MA
Supervised by I am also licensed in Michigan as an LPC.

About My Clients

I work with adult individuals, couples, and adult groups (think: adult child and parent, adult siblings, friends, etc). I do not work with teens or children. My typical clients are interested in working through issues, invested in their growth, and are open to exploring deeper issues of life and what it means to be them. I am strongly relational in my work with clients, providing feedback, insight, and guidance in a nonjudgmental way.

My Background and Approach

I have done my own work over the years and know what it feels like to entrust your story to a stranger. I know how difficult it can be to find the "right" therapist for you. I am here to be of service to my clients, to the best of my ability. I use a variety of theoretical approaches because I do not believe in one size fits all -- not when it comes to therapy anyway! My subspecialty is couples work; I am in the certification program for Relational Life Therapy (RLT). RLT is a life changing approach to couples work. Additionally, I pursue other continuing education opportunities throughout the year. I have an affinity for other cultures and speak several languages at least conversationally. I am particularly competent with Middle Eastern and European cultures. Multicultural relationships, multifaith relationships, cultural assimilation...these are all areas of expertise. I am a National Certified Counselor besides being fully licensed in MA and MI.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My tagline is that I am an archeologist of the self, and I help my clients become that for themselves, too, and help couples discover and explore each other this way, too. I believe relationships are vitally important and that living in accordance with our values is imperative to feeling at home in our life. This is a process and a never ending journey; it's not based on what I think is important for my clients, but what my clients think is important to and for them. I am accepting and validating, and also use my own experience and wisdom to help my clients examine their own beliefs to see if they are actually a help or a hindrance. Some of my main goals in my work are for clients to come to terms with their life, find acceptance, and healthy self love, so they can live an authentic life. Likewise, most clients need help learning relational skills so that they can create healthier, happier relationships with others.
