Dr. Johnson is the owner and Director of Behavioral Health Services of Atlanta, LLC.
There comes a time in our lives when we need someone else to help us through stressful or difficult situations. Whether you’re trying to overcome stress, depression, or other life issues, I’m here to support you as your Atlanta therapist.
I have worked as a licensed counselor since 2013 and helped many people work toward peace and happiness. From helping families develop behavior intervention for young children, to single parents and married couples attempting to merge parenting styles, I’ve assisted people of all ages with ways to identify and communicate their needs.
You deserve to have a safe place to work through the difficult situations in your life. I will help you find the tools you need to overcome whatever challenges you face now and in the future.
Your experiences and challenges are unique to you, which means your therapy should take that into account. To find the best approach, I will listen as you express your current issues and goals for the future. From there, I will create a treatment plan for how we can reach your therapy goals.
While I create unique treatment plans for each person, I do subscribe to particular therapy techniques. For young children, I believe that behaviorist therapy is the best approach. I use cognitive behavioral, person-centered, and humanistic therapies for adolescents and adults.
