My name is Jericia Johnson and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over two decades experience in community mental health. My areas of specific practice are providing therapy services to adults, couples and groups. I provide a safe space to unbox, unload, sort through and discard tough emotions, pain spots, or soul injuries that are preventing you from moving forward on your journey.
I am passionate about ending stigma related to mental health treatment in our communities and providing a space for everyone to have opportunity to renew, refresh and rebuild their spirit. I have a special interest in providing a space for women, especially women of color; to feel seen, heard, respected and empowered. My counseling style is one that encourages informal yet clinical conversation; giving my clients space to share emotions, feelings and thoughts without judgment. I offer you a different perspective to consider as we work together to find solutions to your problems.
A little about me... I'm an Air Force Brat and have lived all over the U.S. I settled in Richmond VA in 1989 and have put down roots here for over 30 years. I love to travel, paint, entertain friends and family, listen to live music, explore my city, check out new restaurants and cultural events, spend time on the couch with my puppy Zola, and generally just enjoy life!
P.S.- I do bring my dog to the office regularly. She is super friendly and will probably jump in your lap and go to sleep at some point during your appointment. Please keep this in mind if you happen to not be a dog person.
