Johanna Hershenson, DD, MAHL, MS, LPC-I

Johanna Hershenson, DD, MAHL, MS, LPC-A

(Provider in Bend, Oregon)

Johanna completed a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Oregon State University-Cascades twenty-five years into her professional journey as a synagogue rabbi. She believes effective counseling must address the mind, body, and spirit.

Johanna is dedicated to person-centered and solution-focused approaches to counseling, and works with clients according to their own sense of what is wrong and what needs to happen to make it right. She is passionate about finding which point of entry (mind, body, spirit) is right for both the client and the moment. The mind stores thoughts and beliefs, while the body integrates those thoughts and beliefs into our responses to our situations and encounters in our daily life. The spirit then reflects the ease (or lack of) in communication between mind and body. A lack of ease in the spirit alerts us to the fact that there is a disconnect between mind and body.

Johanna’s shared goal with her clients is increasing satisfaction and ease in the client’s life and relationships. She engages in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to explore thoughts and beliefs, as well as meaning-making through Existential Therapy. In other moments she will focus on what is happening in the body utilizing Emotion Focused Therapy, Heartmath, and Neurofeedback.

Alexandra Du Toit, MA, LMFT-A

Alexandra Du Toit, MA, LMFT-A

(Provider in Bend, Oregon)

Therapy is a process of self-discovery. Alexandra has been working with children, teens, and adults for over 10 years and she has come to realize is that in order to live a life where you are not just surviving but rather thriving, it is best to find a balance with the mind, body and spirit. When we are not in balance life can feel overwhelming, sad, frustrating, and challenging. When we experience trauma, grief, addictions, lack of self-worth and purpose or any other issues, life can feel out of control and just too much. Sometimes we need a bounce board, assistance, or guidance to find our way forward.

Alexandra believes in using a holistic approach in the therapeutic process. To assist in creating balance in your life, she uses a wide variety of treatment modalities including attachment, mindfulness techniques, behavioral strategies, strength-based learning, solution focused therapy, play therapy, yoga and eco therapy.

She believes that you know yourself the best and are an expert in your own life. You have the ability to be happy and feel whole. Her goal is to be with you on your journey to thrive.
