Alisa Johnson, LPC

Alisa is a Licensed Professional Counselor, with a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from Southern Nazarene University.  She provides individual and couples counseling. Alisa is certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and she has found EMDR to be effective in addressing trauma and adverse life events with clients. Alisa has also begun training/consultation in Internal Family Systems (IFS) as an additional modality to address trauma in client’s lives. With incorporating EMDR and/or IFS into sessions with clients, they seem to be better equipped to manage life’s stressors more effectively.

Alisa is working toward certification in Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples, which is an effective treatment in helping couples heal attachment injuries and develop secure bonds. Paradoxically, working with individuals who are in various stages of determining if they want to end a relationship is another area where Alisa has developed a niche. She has experienced great success in helping clients navigate this incredibly difficult decision in their lives.
