About

Hello, my name is Brett Johnson and I have 12 years of experience working in the mental health field providing direct care and case management for adults in community mental health. I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer for two years in Peace Corps Bulgaria’s youth development program. While there, I worked in orphanages and youth centers to implement projects developing life skills, teaching English, utilizing art therapy, and educating about HIV/AIDS and anti-human trafficking. I received my MSW degree from Western Michigan University, where I served as an intern for two at the University’s Sindecuse Counseling Services.
With a lot of experience working with adolescents and adults, I use an eclectic approach to therapy, drawing from many therapy models to help you identify effective treatment strategies. I utilize CBT, DBT, strengths-based, solution-focused, trauma-informed, mindfulness, and other interventions to help you move toward healing and overall well-being.
I have also completed level 1 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy. I take pride in my ability to easily connect with others and am devoted to collaborating with you in ways that best meet your needs. I look forward to being there for you and providing a safe, comfortable atmosphere for you.
