OUR STORY

We’ve loved every minute of our journey!

SUMMER 2016

BEING RECOGNIZED IN THE COMMUNITY THAT WE SERVE

As clinical director of a private practice, Denisha won Best Counselor for Kids. This was the first year the community was polled without people being able to push for votes. Thank you Loudoun for acknowledging the service of clinician's in the County.

AUGUST 2017

DENISHA JOHNSON LLC 

WAS ESTABLISHED

Denisha established Denisha Johnson, LLC in August 2017. This was a solo mental health practice, offering individual, family, and group therapy services in Leesburg, VA. A variety of community services were also offered, including public speaking to empower women and teens, educating the community on local resources, and helping parents through school partnerships.

AUGUST 2020

WE STARTED FOCUSING ON 

TRAINING NEW THERAPISTS

Denisha Johnson, LLC began transitioning from mostly therapy focused, to also focusing on training new therapists. Hiring interns and residents became a key component of the business.

APRIL 2021

WE CHANGED OUR BUSINESS NAME TO JOURNEY TO WELLNESS

By April 2021, it was evident that being a solo practice no longer aligned with the business and/or personal journey for Denisha Johnson, LLC. At this time, the business name was formally changed to Journey to Wellness, to signify the journey for the business, client's, and new therapists.
