About Dr. Amy Johnson
I’m so glad you’re here.
I’m a coach, social psychologist, and the author of a few books. I’m also a wife, Willow and Miller’s mom, and a lover of coffee, yoga, travel, documentaries, library books and a full night’s sleep.
I experienced severe anxiety, panic attacks, and binge eating/bulimia for several years. I was told by many well-trained, well-intentioned professionals that these issues would likely be with me for life in one form or another. They could become manageable; I could learn to cope—but they weren’t the kind of things people just “got over”.
Thankfully, nothing could be further from the truth today.
Several years ago I came across a down-to-earth spiritual understanding of life that changed everything for me. It is the basis of everything I teach and write about. It is the foundation for how I help people end their own unwanted habits and unnecessary worries.

“I rediscovered the peace that I’ve always had within me... I still get caught up in my thinking but the world is a much more beautiful, peaceful place to live in now that I know how my experience of it is created.”
“Amy led me through this understanding in a very simple and accessible way. Not only did I have many great insights, but I saw tangible results in the way I now approach my unwanted habits.”
“I don't feel the same need to rush in and try and 'fix' every situation when I'm upset or if someone around me is upset. I'm seeing in the most wonderful way that when I allow myself and others some space before jumping in to figure it out in the heat of the moment that solutions to problems naturally arise or there's nothing that needs to be done. It's pretty amazing - so grateful.”
