About Rue Johnson, MA, LPC

Counselor in Newberg, OR

Rue J. MA, LPC

Rue J. completed her Master's in Professional Counseling at Liberty University. Rue is experienced in grief, loss, trauma, adjustment/life changes, anxiety, and depression. Her approach is evidence-based through the use of the IFS model. IFS is a powerful and effective method for integration that helps individuals soothe activated parts in healing deep wounds by tapping into the individual's powerful SELF-lead energy.

Rue believes that the human spirit is geared toward resiliency and that resources are available. It is this belief that has fueled her goal to help clients discover these resources and help them improve their quality of life as a result. She seeks to create a safe space for clients, free of judgment, where they can explore their deepest values and goals. She aims to help clients determine what parts of their lives are working well and which features they would like to fine-tune to increase well-being and peace.

In her spare time, Rue enjoys: spending time with her family and dog, traveling with her friends, outdoors, dancing and comedy, listening to many types of music, practicing her guitar, and singing.
