Alisa Johnson, LPC

Alisa is a Licensed Professional Counselor, with a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from Southern Nazarene University. Alisa has training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy and is working toward certification. Alisa has found it to be effective in addressing trauma and adverse life events with clients. Alisa has worked with families, couples and individuals, providing a safe environment in which they can identify strengths and develop healthy coping skills. As a result, clients are better equipped to manage life’s stressors more effectively.

Alisa provides individual and couples counseling. Working with couples to identify relationship strengths as well as weak areas, to help them develop healthier patterns and improve their relationships is one of her specialties. Alisa is working toward certification in Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples, which is an effective treatment in helping couples get unstuck from unhelpful communication cycles 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.
