Mary Johnson-Waldington , LPC-S, ACS, NCC, CMHT
Licensed Professional Counselor
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor (LPC-S), Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS), National Certified Counselor (NCC), and Certified Mental Health Therapist (CMHT). I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I have (15) fifteen years of counseling and supervision experience in outpatient and school based settings. I have experience working with children/adolescents and families/couples providing individual therapy, family therapy, couple therapy, group therapy, and crisis management. I have extensive training in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). Also, trained in TeleMental Health.
My orientation to counseling is based on cognitive-behavioral (CBT) approach. However, I employ eclectic techniques in counseling to best fit each client. I believe that the primary process of counseling involves helping clients to find the resources within themselves in order to develop requisite skills and address themes related to their presenting problem(s) or underlying issues. My focus is to help clients gain insight into their concerns, gain an empowered sense of self, internalize a range of coping skills, and minimize negative influences.
