ABOUT US

WORKING WITH OLDER ADULTS SO THAT YOU CAN

LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE

Counseling Services For
Older Adults
Our clients are older adults who are experiencing difficulty coping with life transitions that occur with aging. These transitions may include grief, health issues, relocating, and more. We work with our clients to help them cope with these stressors.

Assisting
Caregivers

According to Family Caregiver Alliance, about 40 million caregivers provide care to adults age 18 and older.* Caregivers frequently neglect their own physical and mental health as they assist with family and friends.

Individually-Focused
Sessions

We prefer to meet with the client alone initially. If the client would like to include a family member, caregiver, or a friend in a future session, this is acceptable and at the client’s discretion.

About Me

My name is Shanta Johnson. I was born and raised in eastern NC. I moved to the Triangle area in 1998 to attend UNC-Chapel Hill. I remained in the area after graduation to work, but eventually returned to UNC to pursue my master’s degree in social work with a concentration in aging.

Why Aging?

My grandparents were influential in my decision. I witnessed the support they received and wondered about the lack of support for others. For over nine years, I have worked with patients with chronic illnesses. The stress experienced by patients, family, and caregivers when managing health and/or mental health issues can be overwhelming.

Reflective Counseling Services, PLLC was started to provide the listening ear that is needed. My desire is to focus on working with the older adult population so that they can live their best life. I work to challenge misconceptions about counseling and make it a common practice among this age group.
