Jody Johnson

 

Freedom Consulting, LLC was founded by Jody Johnson M.Ed., CRC, LMHC in a response to needs she found in the community. 

 

She had worked for the State of Washington – Department of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) as a lead Mental Health Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor (VRC), for seven years and loved the work. However, she discovered there were many needs in the community for her clients that weren’t being met.  Freedom Consulting was formed to teach classes, and provide services that were missing in our community.

 

Freedom Consulting has been in business since 2011; during that time, we have been CARF accredited, and are a statewide vendor to the WA Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR), Idaho Vocational Rehabilitation (IDVR), Department of Services for the Blind (DSB) as well as the Veteran Administration (VA).

 

Jody is a Masters Level trainer with the Center for Dependable Strengths©, and also is on the Board of Directors.

 

She has taught Motivational Interviewing to state agencies across the Northwest.

 

Jody Johnson is a Masters Level therapist, Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC), and Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), Statewide and National Trainer and CEO with a motivational interviewing style of relating.  Her teachings and trainings give practical tools and real-world experience to assist your customers and/or staff in reaching their goals.
