LCSW, RYT-200hr

No longer accepting clients.
I’m Johnette Walser, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Registered Yoga Teacher. My belief is that therapy is a tool to learn more about yourself and how to meet your challenges head on and engage with your experiences more fully. I operate from a trauma informed, anti-oppression, and resilience perspective – meaning that I recognize that there are systems and environments under which we all live that create oppression, stress and trauma AND I believe that you already have the skills and power within you to navigate through hardships. My goal is to help you to bring those skills forth and provide both a safe and courageous space for you to process your choices, feelings, and needs with someone who will validate you, accept you, and empathize with you. I believe that you are the expert in your own life and I will work with you to learn how to trust your own inner guidance. My style is transparent and supportive. I infuse humor and compassion into my work with my clients. My techniques include cognitive therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Somatic (mind-body) therapies such as Mindfulness, EMDR and Brainspotting, but ultimately, I will take the lead from you. I specialize in working with BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) folx ages 19-40. I have experience with those experiencing: depression, anxiety, racial trauma, and with those experiencing stress related to living under oppressive systems, life transitions, or academics. I also have experience working with college students, educators, organizers and activists and frontline workers.
