Licensing: LMHC
Years in Practice: 20
State: DC


I am Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Florida with over 20 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, and addiction issues.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, solution focused, and motivational interviewing. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I am here to create a safe space for you to tell your story without judgement. I will come along side you to help you make positive choices to create increased self love, and healthier and more fulfilling relationships with others.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

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.

My counselor, Lou Ellen Johnson, is AMAZING. I absolutely adore her. She is kind and patient. I personally seclude myself when I start to get depressed or have too many things going on that overwhelm me and Mrs. Lou Ellen is constantly supporting me and encouraging me to participate but does not push me. She may use a little reverse psychology to get me to continue but ultimately she is just trying to help me. I love how relatable she is and so comfortable to talk to. I typically have a hard time expressing myself, but Mrs. Lou Ellen is so easy to talk to. I am not a very proud person, but she has been so great with encouragement and with explaining certain things that she has helped me be proud of myself and so much more confident. In the short amount of time that I have been speaking with Mrs. Lou Ellen, I have overcome many different obstacles that I have not had the courage to in many years. I am a private person and shut down a lot, but BetterHelp is now an essential in my life. I am so happy that I started and if I could shout to every person in the world how amazing my specific counselor is, I would! She is AWESOME! Definitely not the typical therapist, she makes things fun and helps you be confident in yourself. The BEST decision I have made so far!!

Mrs. Johnson is absolutely amazing. This is my first experience in therapy and I’m a very private person, but I rant and rave about how amazing she is!

Although my time was short with Lou Ellen (3 sessions) I truly loved every minute with her! She was very helpful immediately beginning with the very first session. She was a great listener and provided helpful worksheets and activities that helped me cope with my situation. She was very personable and so easy to talk to. A big thank you to Lou Ellen!!

I’m so happy with this experience as at the present time counselors on my insurance have a 2 month wait time to be seen once . I do wish my insurance covered this but I am perfectly capable of paying and it’s worth it
