Kellie "Kel" Johansen
As a mental health and substance use counselor, I appreciate the opportunity to work with people when life seems hard. We all face transitions, trauma, grief, loss, and times when things just don’t make sense. I support people in these challenging times with approaches learned in my academic program combined with over 27 years working in the mental health field and as a human with shared experience.
Mindful that no two people feel or react the same to life circumstances, I provide a comfortable, non-judgmental space for individuals to open up, be themselves, and share their story. With the recognition of an individual’s strengths, lifestyle, and goals, together we create a plan that ultimately leads to healing, acceptance of self and others, self-empowerment, strengthened mind-body connection, more routine health and wellness practices, and an increased sense of joy and peace.
