Kelsey R. Johnson (Beals),

Hi, my name is Kelsey Johnson. Elizabeth and I started GIFT Counseling Center for Wellness in 2014 with the vision of creating an environment for individuals to come and experience healing and growth.

I earned my Bachelor of Science in Psychology at The Ohio State University in 2010. Throughout undergrad, I found a passion working with individuals and families who have experienced traumatic stress. This passion led me to continue moving forward in my career. I found a home in Greenville, when I attended Clemson University to obtain my Masters in Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (2010-2012). During my time in practice, I envisioned expanding the awareness of traumatic stress and how it impacts individuals. Elizabeth and I created GIFT Counseling Center for Wellness, LLC (Guiding Individuals and Families through Trauma) to be a place for security and guidance to individuals and their families during a time of traumatic stress and transition.

I am trained in Mind-Body-Medicine, Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Trauma- Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Approaching each individual with a holistic perspective, I aim to work along side each individual; honing in on the power they hold throughout their journey. We offer hope, build resilience, and enhance wellness through a treatment team approach. I believe it is a GIFT to go on a journey with clients when they heal their heart, mind, body, and spirit.

When I am not in the office, you can find me on the trails or playing sports. I enjoy hiking, camping and spending time with friends and loved ones.
