About Marquita Johnson

Are you embracing the present? Do you find yourself dwelling on the past or focused on the future? Does this leave you confused? Feeling stuck? Feeling unbalanced due to the demands of life? I focus on creating an environment for healing to take place. I want you to unlock your true potential by exploring the various aspects of your "being". This includes the spiritual, mental, and physical aspects. Wholeness can be achieved when you are true to yourself. It takes courage to embark on such a journey. I welcome you to take the first step by contacting me.

Intrapersonal and interpersonal relationships are the focus of our existence. Often there is a struggle in our relationships with ourselves. This happens when we are living in the past or too future oriented. We do not embrace the present, by doing so we rob the present of it's beauty.
