About the Instructor

Rebecca Johnson, LMFT is passionate about the field of mental health and after spending 13 years in the field with the last 8 years practicing therapy, her passion for supporting perinatal families in all stages of their growth has only increased. She is blessed to be the mother of 2 beautiful young children and an amazing bonus daughter.
