I’m so appreciative to be recognized as part of Loudoun’s 40 under 40 class of 2021! Thank you to all of my clients who have allowed me into their lives. I never saw myself as a business owner but am so grateful to now own a practice that continues to grow. And I finished my website just in time for the banquet!


I’m so honored to not only have been nominated, but to be considered one of Loudoun’s 40 under 40 🙏🏾❤️


Denisha Johnson LLC will now do business as Journey to Wellness. I decided to make this change to show my personal growth as an entrepreneur, my business growth, growth of my clients, and the growth of interns and residents that I am supervising. Please follow this new page (there aren’t any posts but I promise to fix that soon 😉). Thank you all for your support over the years.


"Trends in Youth Substance Abuse; Why Good Kids from Good Homes Are Still at Risk."
Substance abuse is a major risk factor for teen suicide. Alcohol, prescription drugs, recreational drugs, vaping...what do parents have to worry about their children being exposed to these days? What can parents do to make sure their children are protected? Hear from school, legal, law enforcement and mental health specialists about how to identify and get help for teens who may be abusing drugs and alcohol.


Life can often feel overwhelming for teens. Our workshops help teens pause, focus and learn skills that can help them through moments of chaos, uncertainty, and stress, while making meaningful connections with their peers.

In the spirit of keeping all of our kids safe, I'd like to invite parents of teens to this free, online event aimed at helping you to better understand your teen's world. This month's panel discussion is about teen dating and how to support your child as they develop healthy romantic relationships. Discussion will include how to identify teen dating abuse (1 in 11 high school girls will experience teen dating violence and 50% of young people who experience physical or sexual abuse will attempt to commit suicide).

I had so much fun doing my “Inside Out Outside In” presentation at Stone Hill Middle School that I forgot to take a picture! Thank you to all of the parents that came out to get a few tips on how to improve communication with your pre-teens 🙂


This morning, I had the honor of presenting at the Teen Power Up Conference. We discussed depression, bullying, and self love. It’s so nice to see a group of young ladies interested in improving their physical and mental health.

Passing along resources. CCT is a mindfulness/compassion training which integrates traditional contemplative practices with contemporary psychology and scientific research on compassion and is designed to develop the qualities of compassion, empathy, and kindness for oneself and for others. The program was developed at the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE) at Stanford University by a team of contemplative scholars, clinical psychologists, and researchers. If you or someone you know is interested but the cost might be prohibitive, there is financial assistance to help cover partial registration costs for those who otherwise could not join the class.

Quote 6: I just want to be normal. I have no idea what that is, but I keep working towards some imaginary goal.


Quote 5: Life was getting so hard. Things were getting more and more gray. I wanted to give up. But for some reason I didn’t.


Quote 4: I used to struggle to see my progress because I was so attached to my depression. But my eyes are finally opening and it feels really nice.


Quote 3: My depression is exhausting. I feel like I’ve used up all of my energy before I even get in the shower 😩


Quote 2: My depression used to make me sad. Now it just makes me angry. Just because it looks different to you, doesn’t mean it’s different to me.
