Marieke Johnson, MSc

Do you have any questions?

Contact me!

Originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I have over 18 years of experience in working with children, adolescents and families through a variety of mental health programs. These programs include youth peer support, mental health advocacy, High-Fidelity Wraparound team planning, post-adoption family therapy and outpatient therapy. I earned a Masters of Science in Professional Counseling from Carlow University in 2015, with a specialization in Trauma Informed Counseling. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh.

Growing up with both American and Dutch roots, I hope to utilize my experience to support other internationals living abroad. I describe myself as an “eclectic” style coach and counselor meaning that I use activities and interventions from a variety of theories like Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral therapy (DBT), or Family Systems therapy. It has been my experience that we can reach our goals when we pay attention to our thinking patterns and the ways we react in relation to our thoughts. I do not believe that any one kind of coaching fits all - your coaching will be tailored to fit what works best for you!

Client Feedback

When asked "What has been the most helpful?" and "Would you reccommend Expath Coaching to others?", clients said:

Putting names to the feelings and reactions I’m experiencing, so that I feel more aware of what is actually happening. I also really appreciated learning different kinds of coping skills because it helps me feel more in control of my life.
I would recommend Expath Coaching because it helped me understand myself much better.

Being able to understand where those anxious feelings come from, and that helps me to understand the signs before I 'blow up.'
Definitely! It's so much easier to know when I need time for myself, or when I need to be comforted by others, and helps me lower how anxious I am. It's really helpful.

Our 13-year-old daughter is working with Expath Coaching and from the first session we already noticed the benefits. Just having someone for her to talk through her feelings and frustrations with has been tremendously helpful, not to mention the insights and tools that Marieke has provided to help her better understand herself and work towards the goals they’ve set together.
Yes. Marieke is really approachable and down-to-earth, flexible, knowledgeable, and skilled at what she does. And the best recommendation is that my 13-year-old daughter likes her!
