Hello and Welcome! My name is Jo Anna Johnson, and I am the owner of Practical Choices and Healthy Change Therapy, LLC, an Associated Licensed Counselor (ALC) for the state of Alabama, and a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist (CCH). I obtained my BA in Psychology from the University of Alabama and my MS in Clinical and Counseling Psychology from Capella University. I serve adult individuals ages 18 and up experiencing a wide variety of issues. These issues consist of but are not limited to problems associated with cultural differences in interpersonal relationships, alcohol and substance abuse, anger management, and trauma associated with domestic abuse and violence. I utilize an integrative-psychotherapeutic approach which uses your biopsychosocial history and continually assess your current stage of change, coping style, reactance level, and treatment preferences to decide techniques effective in addressing the presenting problem. As such, my role as counselor will change to match your needs; whether it be advisor, supporter, consultant, etc.
We offer professional counseling services, specializing in marriage and family, individual and adolescent. Other specialities include depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, blended family issues, substance abuse, and anger management.
I provide counseling services for individuals, couples, and families. I treat depression, anxiety, stress disorders, different types of abuse, and addictive disorders. I have experience in dealing with grief and hospice as well. I use various approaches, including cognitive behavioral therapy, spiritual therapy, systems therapy, and solution-focused therapy.
I perform wedding services for couples who may not have a minister, don't belong to a fixed denomination, or desire a marriage performed in unusual settings, such as a beach, a park, or other environment. Services can be tailor-made for the client, with or without religious overtones, but it is standard to me to make reference to God or a creator at some point in the service. I can offer standard or specifically written vows and will happily work with couples who want to create their own vows. I am based on the Mississippi Coast but can easily travel to New Orleans or other areas to perform services. I also offer premarital counseling if the couple so desires. I hold a master's degree in Christian counseling, am a licensed and ordained Christian chaplain, and hold state licensure to perform weddings in Louisiana.
We are fulfilling the message of the cross through means needed. We cover Bible study personal weddings and all reasons needing a minister when there is no one else to find.
We provide Mental Health Counseling, Life Coaching and Spiritual and Faith-Based Counseling on request. We have experience working with all ages, life cycles and issues from ADHD, self-worth, boundaries, depression, anxiety, grief, etc. to more complex issues such as relationships, gender identity, trauma and personality disorders. Let us help you overcome your limitations, uncover your personal power and live the life closer to what you once imagined was possible. While I build a website and prepare to open an office, I can meet any place convenient for you M-F after 5 pm CST; whether at a bookstore, coffee shop, a swimming pool, track or your child's soccer practice, your home, the local gym, or ONLINE...there are few limits to being there for you. Everything is confidential, except intent to harm to self or others...then it is my duty to warn.
