Johnny Wells


Johnny (he, him, his) received his Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. He completed his practicum at the Community Counseling Center at UNO and his internship at Omaha Integrative Care. He has worked with adults and adolescents dealing with challenges such as anxiety, ADHD, depression, trauma, grief, and life transitions.

He believes in the importance of empowering individuals and honoring their unique experiences through a trauma-informed, collaborative approach. His integrated approach draws from various modalities, including narrative, somatic, mindfulness, attachment theory, and psychodynamic therapy. Other areas of interest include LGBTQIA+ issues, creativity, and nature. He believes in the power of practicing compassion — especially self-compassion — which is a vital, yet often forgotten, component of wellbeing. He looks forward to gaining additional training in trauma-focused approaches, as well as ecotherapy.

Johnny believes that regardless of modality, a supportive, empathetic, and authentic therapeutic relationship fosters the conditions for healing and growth. He knows that healing happens through interconnectedness with each other, ourselves, and the larger world, and that challenging systemic oppression is crucial to creating collective wellbeing.
