Shari Johansson – MA, LPC, NCC –American Assoc. of Christian Counselors
The privilege of counseling is that it is like getting to dance. I get to partner with another in a creative process that is enlivening. My part is to provide the dance floor & a sense of safety and structure that frees the client. Then, there is the sacred space to unfold with guidance that is more a rhythm than an instruction. Counseling is an experience of self discovery towards the art of living well.
Since 1993, Shari has been involved in counseling ministry dedicated to encouraging women and men to live fully by design in deep relationship with God and others. Areas of specialized interest include: neurofeedback, abuse recovery, grief work, identity issues, life direction, marital issues, parenting, adoption parenting and all things relational. Shari is experienced in Attachment Relationships, Anxiety, Grief, ADHD, Anger Management, Codependency, Family Conflict, Obesity/Weight loss, Relationship Issues, Sexual Abuse, Spirituality, Behavioral Issues, Divorce, Life Coaching, Parenting, Self-Esteem, Sleep/Insomnia, and Trauma/PTSD.
Angie Johnston has been a counselor in private practice for 23 years, because she is captivated with people, where they come from, where they are headed, and being a part of personal transformation.

If those struggles be with their faith, their relationships, grief, their purpose and identity, adoption, parenting, fear, addiction, whatever the issue, she has a passion to come alongside, helping them make connections to hope, meaning, and the “bigger story” they are connected too.
