About

I believe that in order to be healthy and happy, the individual must be focused on growth and change. If you are not healthy or happy, then change is needed. However, several factors complicate this simple truth. We give too much or allow our power to be stolen rather than exchanged; Fear, anger, and sadness can override logic and wisdom. How we act and think affects our experience of reality. I work clients to help increase their sense of self-direction, align their behaviors with their goals, and replace the negative thoughts and behaviors with a more positive perspective.
My approach focuses on addressing these factors in order to reacquire a healthy and happy lifestyle. I hold clients to the expectation of change and growth and meet them where they are and walk with them until they find their path to health and happiness. Whether with adolescents with behavioral issues or adults stuck in endless cycles, I am here to help.
Much of my practice focuses on working with families struggling with sexual and disruptive teens, men's issues and special populations. I also enjoy working with other issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and communication concerns.

Johnathan A Johnson's Groups

Teen Social Skills Group D&D Style

This teen group will focus on socialization and communication skills for teens through role playing characters on a campaign using Dungeon & Dragons as the format. The youth will be assigned a character class based on their strengths and needs as a client. From there, they create a character and build skills and experiences in team building, communication, self-expression, identity formation and choosing actions that come with consequences all while having fun and battling monsters and villains.
