Michael Johnson


About Me

I have thirty years of experience serving people with a variety of diagnostic labels. I work comfortably with individuals, couples, and entire families. I have had several advanced training experiences in Family-Systems Therapy. I am also trained to an advanced degree in Motivational Interview.
When I am given the honor of serving someone therapeutically, I believe it is my responsibility to provide an approach that feels most comfortable, and is most effective for that person. The person, their history, and their current issue should guide the work we do together. I can use a quick 'solutions' focus. However the depth, complexity, and confusion of your experience will suggest the style and pace of our work.
I am a 70 year old Christian man with the experiences of marriage, divorce, a blended and inter-racial family, vocational issues, addiction recovery, and ADHD. I can counsel from a Christian perspective, if you prefer. You will be my partner in the formation and execution of your treatment plan. I ensure that you know the purpose, process, and desired outcome of each element of our work together. My effort is directed by your thoughts, feelings, and expressions.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
