Professional statement

Johanna Limmer is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor located in Simsbury, CT. Johanna works with individuals and couples of all ages who would like to make positive change in their lives. Many of Johanna’s clients feel stressed or anxious about school, work, or challenges in their relationships, which may result in low self-esteem. Often, clients begin therapy after experiencing trauma in their lives or to process through adverse events that happened to them in the past. She also works with clients who struggle with suicidal or self-harming behaviors to deal with emotional pain and has many years working with disordered eating behaviors.

Johanna offers individualized therapy sessions, as she understands how important it is for therapy to be tailored to the specific needs and goals of the client. She is a strengths-based therapist, which means that she focuses on the positives in a person’s life and encourages clients to explore their successes to find a path to move through their current challenge. Johanna practices Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to help clients learn how to maintain healthy thought patterns. She also practices Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, a specialized therapy approach to help clients with processing trauma.

Johanna earned a Master’s degree from Arizona State University and has over 20 years of experience in a variety of clinical settings. She also completed a two year residency in CBT, DBT, and ACT training. She has led several types of therapy groups as well as directed an adolescent DBT program. She believes that change isn’t just about talking in therapy sessions but setting goals and working towards results.
