Jessica Johnson, MA

Resident in Counseling

At the age of 16, I decided that I wanted to be a part of the counseling profession because I was very curious about the impact I had on people generally, discovering why people arrived at whatever point in their lives that allowed sitting with me to be their choice. As a person living with a diverse ability accompanied with experience in advocacy, policy, programming, and resource development, I believe my purpose in the counseling profession is to help people become confident in their own skin via connection and empowerment while ensuring the desired quality of life for each individual can be achieved. I believe in an individualized and eclectic approach with each person I meet utilizing Person-centered, Reality, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing techniques. I earned a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from South University-Richmond in 2017 and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Business minor from Norfolk State University in 2014.
