Outpatient Therapy for Adults

Counseling with adult outpatient services can provide the guidance and support that will help you through traumatic events and stressful periods in your life. Some of our counseling specialties include:

  • Relationship issues: marital and pre-marital couples therapy, communication skills, conflict resolution and sexuality issues
  • Mood/anxiety disorders: depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorders, panic attacks, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and obsessive-compulsive disorders
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT): state-certified, evidence-based DBT programming for adults and a modified program for adolescents
  • Anger management: group and individual therapy
  • Other: trauma related issues, foster care/adoption issues, adult ADHD, grief and loss, stress management, self-esteem, geriatric/aging, life transitions, and care for those in the LGBTQ+ community

Outpatient Therapy for Children, Adolescents, and Families

Children and adolescents, like adults, can benefit from counseling. Therapists can teach them how to develop problem-solving skills and help them cope with stress and a variety of emotional and behavioral issues. These kinds of therapies can address immediate concerns and also support a child in their development toward adulthood.

Many children, adolescents, and their families need help dealing with school stress, such as homework, test anxiety, bullying, or peer pressure. Others need help to discuss their feelings about family issues, particularly if there’s a major transition, such as a divorce, move, or serious illness.

Canvas Health’s skilled, caring clinicians handle all concerns related to family and child mental health services. We do full screenings and assessments, and provide case management to ensure that nothing falls through the cracks. Our continuum of care, which includes access to day treatment programs, substance use services, psychological testing and crisis services, provide you with a comprehensive and individualized team of treatment providers.

Matt Johnson, LICSW, MSW

Psychotherapist/ Clinic Supervisor

Welcome! My approach to therapy begins with you – your goals, hopes, and dreams for the future. I wholeheartedly believe that everyone has everything they need inside of them. I believe people get stuck when they get disconnected from their internal wisdom. I believe people get stuck in strategies to try and solve their struggles, but those strategies don’t get them what they need or they pay a high price for them. Here you are, taking a bold step towards getting what you need, getting unstuck.

Professional Experience

Collaboration is extremely important to me – we are partners working towards your goals, those things you want to be different. I see myself as a guide, walking with you. I bring a variety of tools as a guide. Tools to help shift the mind and patterns of thinking. Tools to help the body shift and release unpleasant experiences, allowing things to pass. Tools to help the whole person to release past traumas and adverse life experiences, that keep them stuck in unhelpful adaptations. My focus is to adapt and customize all of these possible tools for each unique client, building upon all their innate strengths.

While I’m focused on working hard with clients, there’s always room for humor and lightness. I bring my whole self and I invite clients to bring their whole selves into the work, not just the “injured parts”. I love a great joke or an interesting story. I’m endlessly curious about so many things about the world and people. I love movies and eating well. I love traveling near and far – learning about the world, history, and people.

For those looking for a more straightforward description, in my practice I use: Client Centered Humanism, EMDR, CBT, Attachment Focused Trauma Therapy (AFTT-A), Emotional Freedom Technique, Mindfulness, and Somatic Experiencing.

Warda Aden, MA

Outpatient Psychotherapist Clinical Trainee

“It is not the bruises on the body that hurt. It is the wounds of the heart and the scars on the mind.”
As your therapist, my goal is to bring a genuine, authentic, and accepting space to help you navigate through this complex world we live in. I see myself as a guide and my approach is very much rooted in the thought that every individual inherently holds the capacity for growth, resilience, and positive transformation – and I am here to help you see it too.
Authenticity is my strong suit as a therapist. I bring my genuine self into our sessions, whether it involves offering encouragement or providing gentle feedback.
I am deeply committed to supporting individuals across diverse populations, with a particular focus on those who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Persons of Color), first-generation individuals, and those with intersectional identities. I’m genuinely excited to welcome anyone seeking to collaborate on their healing journey, and I can’t wait to embark on this meaningful path together.

Jenna Amundson, MA

Outpatient Clinical Therapist Trainee

I believe that suffering is a part of life, but also that suffering is a great teacher and nurturer if we allow it. No one can live your life, but you–and still there is a place for you here in the sea of humanity.

Therapy invites you to see yourself in a new, more glorious, often fractured light. It takes the stuck, broken pieces that weigh us down and examines them with fresh eyes, offering hope in the healing journey ahead as those pieces turn into our own solid foundation. Be gentle as you begin this next journey.

Vanessa Heit, MSW, LICSW

Outpatient Psychotherapist

Just like physical health, we all have emotional/mental health. Life will bring changes, challenges, and stressors that impact our mental health. I believe learning and growing through these experiences can bring increased wellness and life satisfaction; AND it is not easy! Therapy creates an opportunity to check in with our self (and a trained professional) about how we are doing with our mental health. As a therapist, I strive to create a professional yet authentic connection that allows for a sense of safety, hope, and empowerment. I use a whole-person approach and individualize the services I provide based on each unique person and situation, drawing from many theoretical frameworks, therapeutic modalities, and wisdom from past experience. I enjoy meeting people from various backgrounds and hearing from them about what is most important to them at this point in their life. We then partner to clarify goals and the strategies we will use to facilitate healing and forward movement. It is always an honor to be alongside people as they do this important wellness work.
