Shawna Johansen, LMHC, Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Ankeny, IA


Most of us are fortunate to have "enough" in our lives, but often feel that there should be "more". More joy, more connection, more purpose, more fulfillment, more peace. Therapy is a process that helps us find that "more" and transition from a life where we survive, to one where we thrive. I offer solution-focused strategies to enhance communication skills, foster healthy connection to self and others, and improve overall life satisfaction. My individualized approach is focused on providing empathy and understanding, magnifying existing strengths, and assisting others to generate and implement their own unique solutions to life's struggles and challenges. Together we can explore hopes, desires, patterns and fears to tap into a new understanding that creates meaningful change.
