More about me

Licensing: LCSW
Years in Practice: 5
State: VA

My name is Johanna, I am a clinical social worker licensed in the states of Maryland and Virginia. I received my master’s degree in Social work from the University of Southern California in 2015. I am bilingual and have experience providing successful counseling in Spanish. I have provided treatment in a variety of settings such as outpatient, community, online and crisis intervention centers. I specialize working with children, adolescents and adults who are having difficulties due to depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder or other mood disorders. I have also worked with people diagnosed with PTSD, as well as different types of psychotic and personality disorders. I have helped people who experienced trauma, low-esteem, identity questioning, adjustment difficulties, life changing events and grief. I have provided crisis intervention for people in crisis and high risk situations as well as support for families of people with mental illnesses.

I work closely with individuals to create a strong therapeutic relationship, one in which they can feel safe and supported. I use cognitive and integrative approaches to create awareness and meet the individuals where they are. I use different interventions and work from a person centered approach. I believe that you are the only expert in your own life and with the appropriate tools will take the leading role. Through supportive, collaborative and interactive sessions I can help you gain greater insight, change your perspective, adopt new behaviors and connect with others. My goal is to guide you and serve you as a tool in your journey to a more productive and joyful life. I strongly believe that through therapy one can develop the skills necessary to overcome obstacles and make significant life changes and live more satisfying and successful life.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Johanna is a great counselor! They have a knack for being super reassuring, and is super refreshing to talk to. Johanna has already helped me build up tools to use for my anxiety in just a few sessions.

She is an excellent listener, very intuitive and understanding. I have benefited a lot from our sessions and would recommend her to anyone seeking practical advice and compassion from their therapist.

I've have had her for two sessions and it's been revealing and reflective.

J. Sanchez does an incredible job teaching how to manage emotions. I was unsure about therapy, afraid to ask for help, not sure if I could even benefit, but it's been worth it thanks to her expertise. Absolutely recommend.

She’s honestly one of if not the best counselor/therapist I’ve had. She’s honest, genuine, and listens. And she asks the tough questions. She truly wants to help and get you out of your own head, and to think way more positive than you did before. She’s a great person and a greater therapist because of it. She’s been helping me tremendously and for that I’m truly thankful.
