I Believe

I help people see the world in new ways that give them the results they're looking for. It's not about changing other people or rearranging external circumstances. It’s about you and changing the way you interact with the world around you so that you effortlessly get what you want. I can help you get out of your own way.  

About Amy Johnson

Hi! I’m Dr. Amy Johnson, a Psychologist and Master Certified Coach. My passion is helping people recognize and change unwanted patterns. That could mean anything from falling for the same “wrong” person over and over, replaying old patterns in relationships, or dealing with insecurity, trust or communication issues. I love helping people change the beliefs and habits that stand in their way so they can create the relationships and the life they truly want.

The thing is, when you begin to think and see things differently, you interact with the world in a more empowered and less fearful way. You learn to create exactly the kind of relationships you desire. Although coaching isn’t always easy, my clients often say they love the process because I offer instantly useable advice while challenging them to find their own truth through my proven effective coaching system. And it’s all done in a light-hearted and supportive way. Click here to read some of my success stories.

I wrote a popular relationship advice column for several years called Ask Amy. My practical, spot-on advice and powerful questions garnered me a large and dedicated online following. Most of all, it was really fun to share what I had to learn the hard way. Although I’m happily married now, I all too clearly remember feeling frustrated and hopeless in the dating world.

I write a blog which is full of down-to-earth and achievable steps to living a happier, more enlightened life. I’ve also co-authored a book called Changes of the Heart which helps readers face a variety of life challenges by taking positive, proactive steps. My coaching practice has been featured in several national publications and in a documentary film.

I live in Chicago but work with clients worldwide via telephone, email coaching, and virtual coaching programs. I regularly speak to audiences nationwide on topics such as creating a life you design, improving overall happiness, and embracing change in relationships and in life.

Amy Johnson Success Stories

I'm over my ex!

Women seeking to start over in a relationship

Amy's coaching methods helped me to finally get over my ex. I was completely torn up over this relationship when I turned to Amy for help. She guided me through the process of feeling my emotions and questioning the painful beliefs I held, and I can finally say I'm over him. Thank you so much Amy for your guidance!

Acting through Fear

Women dealing with stress

“Deciding to work with Amy was not an easy decision for me. I had a lot of concerns about working with a coach, investing the money, and bearing my soul to a stranger. After the 3 month Intensive Program I can honestly say that it was the best decision I’ve made for myself. I’ve learned to see things in different ways and challenge the beliefs that held me back for so long. I still have fears and worries at times but I know how to act anyway rather than wait for them to go away. Amy’s coaching made me so much more in control in my own life and I’m very grateful for that. ”

Skeptical, but Happy now

Men seeking a relationship

“I was skeptical. But the three months of email coaching I did with Amy were more valuable in changing my thinking than I ever imagined. I highly recommend doing this for yourself!”

The Real Deal

Men seeking to end a relationship

“The e-coaching I’ve done with Amy has changed everything for me. I see things in a different way, I feel more powerful to make big choices and create what I want in my own life. Since our coaching began I’ve asked for a raise and got it, left a dead-end relationship, and I am a much happier person. Amy is the real deal!”

Coaching Success

“I can not begin to describe the value and insight that Amy’s coaching has provided me. With her help I was able to identify and change my old ways of thinking that were holding me back. I have met with numerous coaches in the past, none of which came close to the results I had from working with Amy!”
