Carrie Johnson, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in San Francisco
Is your family navigating significant changes, transitions, or a recent diagnosis or identified learning difference? Is your child struggling with self-esteem, behavior challenges, or anxiety and depression? Do you want to break a cycle of blame and resentment in your intimate relationship, or need a couples tune-up? Are you searching for more fulfillment and less stress in your busy life? These are just a few of the issues I am experienced in treating as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT79984). I offer psychotherapy for children, adolescents, families, couples, and individuals.
I use evidence-based practices, including Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I have specialties in working with attachment/trauma, risky and oppositional behaviors stemming from multiple diagnoses or disorders, the complex issues that arise in foster care or post-adoption, and using a family systems treatment approach.
My clients find me approachable, genuine, and playful or irreverent enough to connect with the most challenging children and teenagers. FamilyWorkshop is a group practice that has a philosophy that closely aligns with my own: systemic, individualized, collaborative, and multidisciplinary services that serve the whole person/family and the community.
