My specialties include: anger management, anxiety, depression , communication, family dynamics, grief and loss, life transitions, relationship stressors, and stress.
Seeking therapy can be a challenging step, because opening up about intimate issues to a stranger is both terrifying and can leave you feeling vulnerable. That's why it's important to find somebody with whom you feel comfortable. It is my priority to make one feel at ease, because reaching your goal is more difficult when this is not at the foundation of the therapeutic experience. This approach has enabled me to work with a wide array of children, teens, adults, couples, and families.

It’s even harder if one is anxious or depressed or overwhelmed by life’s traumas and relationship distress .
Good therapy works. It’s not magic but it feels that way as we work together to address the situations or relationships you’re struggling with. Together, we build a trusting relationship where change and insight are possible. Feeling relief and gaining confidence in yourself occurs. As a compassionate listener and experienced clinician, I will create a safe space and be a capable guide for you.

Parents, are you worried that your teen may be stressed or depressed ? Are they refusing to communicate with you, staying up real late at night, becoming defiant and or have excessive use of gaming or social media? Has social distancing caused them to isolate from friends and family and sleep all day? Have they seemed to have lost all motivation and have no structure to their daily life? My name is Tametra Johnson and I am the founder of Jacobs Ladder Therapies. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with over 15 years experience working with teens and mental health.

Life is full of challenges which may include difficulty in one's personal relationships.

Therapy provides a healthy outlet to learn new skills to improve interpersonal relationships and overall mental health. I have a Master's Degree in Social Work and have been in the field for the past 20 years. I thoroughly enjoy working with the adult population. I personally know how therapy can help tremendously during low periods of life. Therapy should provide mental healing and wholeness!

I work with individuals, couples and families experiencing any relationship issues, grief & loss, as well as clients struggling with low self esteem, trauma, anxiety and depression .
Congratulations on taking the courageous step to begin therapy. As we all know, life can be challenging and demanding at times. This may lead us to feeling sad, angry, hopeless or confused. We may feel stuck and not know how to move forward; which can be a very lonely and scary place to be as well. However, you are not alone and healing is possible! My role as a therapist is to provide a safe place and offer warmth and empathy throughout this collaborative process, in order to help you in exploring your thoughts and feelings, as well as guide you in developing insight and identifying skills to achieve the thriving life you deserve.

My past training and clinical work have provided me expertise in the areas of depression , cultural issues, assertiveness, relationships, anxiety, and trauma.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
