I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I have experience in working with individuals who are experiencing difficulties with: anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, PTSD, anger management, relationship issues, couples/marriage/family concerns, life transitions, legal issues, substance abuse, and parenting.

The different modalities of treatment that I subscribe to includes: cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), family/marital therapy, person centered therapy, family system theory, structural family therapy, strengths based therapy, and solution focused brief therapy (SFBT).

I believe in taking a strengths focused holistic approach to treatment. In taking that approach we focus on the bigger picture, while focusing on your positive attributes and strengths. We all go through difficulties in life; we can work through those difficulties together. You are welcome here. We will get through this together.

Lamara Johnson has been a great counselor so far. I feel very comfortable talking to her during our phone sessions. It's nice that she checks in with me during the week through the app. And she's very good at responding to everything I type to her. The homework and worksheets she assigns me each week have been super helpful and thought provoking. They've helped my husband and I communicate more effectively that we have been and it's already positively affecting our relationship.

Lamera is accurate in identifying my shortcomings, she is respectful, she is patient, and she asks the right questions for me to resolve my issues. I highly recommend her work.
