The support of an experienced, compassionate professional can to help you overcome stressful events, learn coping skills and become more resilient. Owned by Marjorie Johnson, LCSW, PCC, Ascend Counseling (a division of Ascend Consulting, Inc.) reflects my philosophy that it is possible to overcome challenges, and continue to grow and develop throughout life to achieve our highest potential. As an experienced West Chester, Chester County therapist, I provide counseling for people grappling with depression, ADHD, anxiety and panic, stress, life transitions, grief, bipolar disorder, postpartum and couples counseling. For thirty years, I’ve been helping people like you successfully recover from mood disorders, change negative thinking, improve self-esteem, learn and practice new relationship skills, deal with stress and manage symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

Treatment Approach:

As a Chester County therapist, my counseling practice is based on respect for the whole person. You will find my treatment style is compassionate, approachable and practical, in a confidential and comfortable environment. While it helps to have someone to talk with, I go beyond listening to provide feedback, advice and practical strategies based on best practices. Therapies used include: mindfulness meditation, cognitive behavioral therapy, DBT, Psychodynamic Therapy, Somatic Therapy and guided visualization. Your therapy will be custom designed based on you and your goals. I’ll provide education about the symptoms and causes of emotional distress, mental health disorders, attention problems and relationship challenges. Together we will work to build your self-worth, expand your possibilities for positive change, and design workable strategies for you to practice between sessions. You will grow and find new hope for your future.
