Johanna Evenson, LISW

Licensed Independent Social Worker

Do you or a family member struggle with an addiction?

Are you experiencing a stressful life event, dealing with loss, or having anxiety/depression?

Has conflict become the norm in your marriage or in a significant relationship?

I feel very privileged to work with people who find the courage necessary to seek help and explore their issues during difficult circumstances. As your therapist I will help you find new ways to move into a more satisfying life.

I began my clinical work in Stockholm, Sweden (2002-2005) as a therapist for a state drug and alcohol program as well as for the Church of Sweden. In both cases I provided individual and group counseling for people battling with co-occurring disorders.

My areas of expertise are:

  • Anxiety/Depression
  • Addiction
  • Relationships
  • Abuse/Trauma

Upon returning to South Carolina I worked for the Dorchester Alcohol and Drug Commission and in 2007 become a Certified Addictions Counselor. Since 2008 I have worked mostly in private practice settings with individuals and couples.

I received a Bachelor’s in Music from Hunter College, NY, in 1991 and a Master’s in Social Work from the University of South Carolina in 2002.

In addition to clients who are private pay, I am in-network with the following insurance companies:

  • Medicare
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield
