About me

Hello, my name is Willie Johnson, MSW, LCSW- Thank You for considering my services...

I am a licensed clinical social worker in Las Vegas, NV, with over 30 years of experience working with individuals, couples, families, groups who are dealing with anger, trauma, attachment issues, depression, anxiety, panic attacks and other mood disorders. It’s extremely important for patients to realize and distinguish the difference between their original true personality and their bodies, feelings, thoughts, and emotions. In other words, YOU ARE NOT YOUR BODY, YOU ARE NOT YOUR FEELINGS, YOU ARE NOT YOUR EMOTIONS! You are not what you feel nor think. True, you do have feelings, thoughts and emotions, but you are not them.

Within this therapeutic relationship, you will learn, recognize, and identify the secondary emotions and personalities that’s trying to manipulate, control and change your character and personality. You will also learn how to release yourself from the pain and guilt of harm done to you or the harm you have done to others or even to yourself. Our goals in therapy is not just to cope or manage these emotional concerns, but to completely get rid of and totally destroy them out of your life. Through self-reflection, therapy will help develop your capacity to be more self-aware, recognize and challenge negative thoughts and build towards a more safe and healthy life functioning.

I believe that prioritizing your mental health is an investment in self; it is an active step towards your healing journey.

"Four Stages To Your Emotional Health & Healing"
1. Love Everybody,
2. Forgive Everybody,
3. Respect Everybody &
4. Be Kind To Everybody -- Starting With Yourself.

I look forward to working with you.
