Rachel Johnson, LCSW
All individuals are capable of living a life of meaning, purpose and fulfillment; sometimes we just need support to help us get there. I view the therapeutic relationship as a foundation for fostering growth, acceptance and change necessary for reaching life’s full potential. Acknowledging how difficult reaching out for help can be, I strive for those I work with to feel accepted, safe, supported and empowered.
In sessions, I utilize evidence based practices while integrating emotional processing, coping skill acquisition and psychoeducation to help individuals and families develop insight and achieve their goals. I am foundationally trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and provide an eclectic approach incorporating trauma, mindfulness, and compassion informed care.
I have training and experience in providing women’s specialized mental health services including but not limited to treatment of mood disorders, anxiety, post-partum adjustment/depression, prenatal loss, trauma, suicidal ideation, self-harm , substance abuse/addiction, and managing stressors and transitions as related to separation/divorce, parenting and work related issues. Additional populations I have experience and passion for working with include young adults and adolescents. I have had the opportunity to help many individuals work through times of crisis and transition as well as long standing challenges.
I look forward to discussing how therapy can provide the support you are seeking and together we can develop an individualized plan to meet your needs!
