I have worked with children, adolescents, adults and families for 20 years in a variety of mental health and educational settings with a focus on increasing personal strengths and fostering healthy relationships. I specialize in the treatment of trauma and anxiety, along with depression, stress management, life transitions, relationship issues, parenting, interpersonal struggles and work and career issues.

In working with clients I use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), EMDR, Brainspotting, Hypnotherapy, client-centered and systems modalities, tailoring treatment to the specific needs of each individual. Therapy is a collaborative effort in which the client and therapist work jointly to identify barriers to growth, resolve past traumas, and focus on strategies to improve wellness. My approach to counseling is warm, collaborative, supportive, and direct. My belief is that every person has the ability to heal, change and grow. A strong therapeutic relationship encourages trust and allows the client and therapist to work equally in a team approach on difficult issues. As part of this process, I work to create tools and coping skills to fit the needs of each unique person using a variety of techniques.​

I work from a person-centered, collaborative, and holistic perspective, offering a non-judgmental space for clients to explore all parts of themselves. I view therapy as a joint effort and firmly believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship to promote change. 

I believe that we are all born on this planet as whole and worthy human beings. I also believe that our various lived experiences — including trauma in all its forms — can have a big impact on our beliefs about ourselves and the ways we show up in the world. As a therapist, my goal is to help you tap back into your truest, most authentic self and uncover barriers that may be preventing you from living your most joyful life.

I specialize in working with pre-teens, adolescents, adults, and LGBTQIA+ individuals experiencing a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, and behavioral issues such as self-harm, substance use, and disordered eating. Prior to joining Road to Growth, I worked across several levels of care in mental and behavioral health including inpatient, residential, partial hospitalization, and outpatient.

Doing this work is a true privilege, and I am here to sit with you in pain, joy, and everything in between. I honor and welcome all identities into my practice and offer a safe, affirmative space for clients to receive support. I hope that I can hold space for you as we navigate the ups and downs of life — together.

Emma Johnson - MA, LAC, MFTC

  • Licensed Addiction Counselor
  • Marriage and Family Therapist Candidate
  • Master of Arts, Marriage and Family Therapy – Regis University
  • Bachelor of Arts, Psychology and Sociology – University of Colorado

The moment I knew I was interested in pursuing a career in therapy was when I visited a medium-level security correctional facility and was given the opportunity to immerse myself in the illustrative stories of six inmates and the reasoning for their incarceration. Upon my return home, my family noted an evident change in my presence observing an increase in my empathy and motivation to help people such as those I had spent the day with. Hearing the tragic history detailed by these men led to an awareness around the patterns and impact one’s family of origin may have on our lives and experiences. These realizations paired with my education are what ultimately led to my interest in a collective approach to therapy.

As a Marriage and Family therapist, my focus is on treating the whole system opposed to only part of the unit. My education and experiences have focused on populations including couples, families, and individuals. The areas that I specialize in are substance use, eating disorders, marital distress, mental health diagnoses, behavioral health diagnoses, and trauma.

I am a Licensed Addiction Counselor (LAC) and have been working in the substance use field for over five years in residential settings with both adolescent and adult populations. I have also worked with eating disorders and coexisting mental and behavioral health issues in partial hospitalization programs for a collective two and a half years.  My understanding of substance use, eating disorders, and mental and behavioral health disorders for a variety of ages has made trauma a central focus of my work.

Asking for help is immensely challenging, it requires extensive vulnerability and risk-taking. Trusting a stranger with your story takes tremendous courage as it is oftentimes frightening and uncomfortable.  Whether you are asking initial questions, scheduling an appointment, or attending your sessions you will be greeted with empathy and support for whatever it is you are facing. Taking the first step is not easy, and I want to assure you that regardless of where you are in your journey, you are not alone. It is my goal to create an environment in which client(s) feel comfortable being vulnerable and furthermore, want to heal.

Seeking therapy can be a vulnerable experience, from listening to your instincts in finding the right match for you, to trusting in your own innate capacity for growth, healing, and change. My approach to therapy stems from a humanistic and systemic lens in which I believe the uniqueness of each individual informs their approach to and capacity for growth, choice, and overall well-being. Operating within a systemic lens allows me to not only look wholly at an individual but experience alongside that individual the world around them.
I believe we need an empathetic and compassionate person to support and empower us while making the courageous decision to embark on the therapeutic journey. I provide a nonjudgemental, inclusive, and safe space for my clients to share their experiences, emotions, and vulnerabilities throughout therapy.
I invite all clients with the desire to heal, grow, learn, and change in their own unique experiences into my office. I believe growth begins with connection and safety, and that all individuals have the capacity for this connection that fosters insight and healing.

  • Bachelor of Arts, Psychology – Metropolitan State University of Denver
  • Counseling Children and Adolescents Play Therapy Certificate (In Progress) – Regis University

The moment I realized I wanted to pursue a career as a Marriage and Family Therapist was during my first psychology course in high school. This course sparked my interest in counseling, specifically with couples and families. A core value of mine is how important relationships are with the world, our families, and ourselves. Learning about the developmental stages inspired me to focus on the importance of relationships. Relationships are fundamental to a child’s upbringing, not just to children but at all stages of life, starting with childhood, leading to adolescence, and through adulthood. 

Through play therapy, I have discovered I am passionate about working with children. My focus is to help all clients but especially children, adolescents, and their families by providing a space where they feel safe, heard, and empowered. During my time as a pre-licensed therapist, my goal has been to strengthen my work with children and adolescents and to help them communicate through their primary language, which is play. 

As humans, I believe we all have a natural desire to want to connect, grow, and improve. Although asking for help is no easy feat, therapy allows individuals the opportunity to grow and improve. As a Mexican American Latina, I have seen first-hand that it is not a cultural norm for everyone to seek help. I acknowledge that it is extremely brave to seek help, therefore I encourage you to remember that your experience is uniquely yours. This journey we call life often comes with obstacles, some greater than others. Regardless of the obstacles or challenges you may be facing; it would be my honor to have you as a client and walk beside you as you work to improve your relationship with yourself and with others!

Every person, place, and thing has played a part in who we are today – these experiences have an impact on our beliefs about ourselves and the world. Coping strategies and relational patterns are developed at an early age. While the context in which we use these changes, the behavioral patterns are not likely to – leading some to feel lost and stuck.

I am currently enrolled in Regis University’s Rueckert-Hartman College for Health Professions pursuing a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am completing my final degree requirements as an Intern at Road to Growth Counseling. Conjointly, I work in the hospital setting where I provide support and care for children and adolescents experiencing a mental health crisis.  I have experience working with people who are in varying life stages and tailoring my approach to my clients’ needs. I am confident in helping you build a tool kit to navigate life’s challenges and achieve your goals. I believe that we are all imperfect beings that have lived experiences that make us uniquely us.

In my approach I will help you identify barriers to growth, overcome past traumas, and focus on strategies to improve your overall wellness. I can help clients disrupt these learned behavioral patterns through utilizing an integrative and holistic approach to therapy that allows me to treat clients from a systemic and experiential perspective.

When you walk through my door, I welcome each of you into my tribe. The innate vulnerability and humbleness of your mere presence are both respected and appreciated. In our shared space, values are rooted in empathy, awareness, accountability, and integrity. I believe only YOU are the true expert and historian of your life, and I graciously stand beside you on this path of exploration, healing, and endless growth. I am an ear, a tool, a voice, and at times a guide to support you on this beautiful and winding path.
In our sacred, safe space, I hope to shift personal and global perspectives from fears, weaknesses, and stagnation into confidence, superpowers, and growth.
My own superpowers show throughout my therapeutic background and are harnessed through a healthy integration of my parts as a neurodiverse individual, family member, friend, educator, life-long learner, and purveyor of creativity. My inspiration for working with families and youth stems from my broad experiences of engagement across holistic pedagogical models of education and child care.
Through a foundation in narrative therapy, I engage amidst the world and my clients with an understanding that each of our realities is established through the unique collection of our experiences. Recognizing the potency of differentiating care based on clients’ needs, I pull interventions from a plethora of therapeutic modalities and theories. Play therapy, experiential engagement, and emotionally focused therapy are at the heart of the process we will collaboratively build.
Gray matter, matters! I perceive the world as a “gray person”, a humanistic worldview that honors the exploration of personal and systemic experiences by eliminating all-or-nothing thinking, opening the door to endless possibilities of growth, understanding, and connection. Do you resonate with envisioning life as a rollercoaster, changing speeds, directions, and levels of excitement and fear? I invite you to join me on this non-linear ride of self-exploration and growth.
