Krystal Johnson

(LCSW, MSW)

About Me

My name is Krystal Johnson, and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of California. I earned my Master of Social Work degree, specializing in Children, Youth and Families, from California State University, Hayward, in 2011 and received my Licensure in 2015. I've worked in many different settings with individuals and families who have a variety of personal issues such as depression/anxiety, stress, family problems, trauma/abuse, relationships/parenting and more. Throughout the years as a clinician, my experience has taught me that the most important aspect of counseling by far is the connection, rapport and comfort you feel with the person you choose to share your most vulnerable thoughts.
My goal is to provide insight, techniques, and tools (to work on and practice in between sessions) that you can use in making changes in your life. Most importantly, I will work with you at a pace that you are comfortable with to ensure we are moving toward the goals that you make for yourself. I look forward to encouraging you, empowering you, guiding you, and even challenging you at times.
A little bit about me- wife and mother of 3, Licensed Zumba Instructor, Musician, & love to scrapbook!

Krystal is an amazing therapist. I appreciate her deep listening and the work she requires me to do to fulfill my goals in treatment. I trust her with my feelings, opinions, and vulnerabilities.

Krystal seems nice and competent, but I just met her so it's kind of hard to make too many conclusions at this point.

I love working with Krystal! It has taken me awhile to find the right mental health counsellor. Krystal listens with compassion and gently helps redirect so that I can focus and make progress toward my mental health goals. I feel supported snd empowered with every session!
