Welcome!  I'm Dr. Jackie Johnson.

I'm a licensed clinical social worker.

My goal is to help you improve your quality of life by guiding you to discover and embrace your authentic self and helping you heal from religious trauma, spiritual abuse, or involvement in toxic, controlling or coercive groups and cults.


Underneath our trauma experience lives our true, innate self.  We can recapture who we were before our trauma and abuse.  In fact, we can recreate ourselves into stronger, more confident individuals and reclaim our autonomy and freedom.

The key is attaining the clarity needed to tolerate and work through our past trauma and current difficulties so that we can move forward and start anew.  We do that by rediscovering and embracing the strength of our authentic selves.

I invite you to work on discovering just how strong you are as you journey toward reclaiming your freedom.
