Nancy A. Johnson, Ed.D, LMHC, MH #8592

Dr. Johnson is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and founded Orlando Counseling Specialists in 2006. Nancy completed her doctorate in counseling psychology from Argosy University-Sarasota in 2010 to become a family specialist. She received her masters of arts in mental health counseling from Reformed Theological Seminary in 2003, as well as her bachelor of science in health education from Northern Michigan University in 1979.


Nancy has experience working with diverse populations on a variety of topics such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, grief and loss, gender and sexual orientation issues, personality disorders, and spirituality. She absolutely loves what she does with family therapy and has found that when treating troubled teens, choosing to work with the entire family has brought about optimal results.
