Hi, my name is Zach Johnston, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Georgia. I also hold a certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy. I would like to take a minute to tell you about myself as well as my clinical experience and style so that you can make a well-informed decision in choosing the best therapist for you.
I have been working with adolescents, adults, couples, and families in private practice for six years. Most of my work focuses on relationship issues, parenting, anxiety, depression, and life changes. Prior to going into private practice, I had the opportunity to work in several settings including therapeutic foster care, Christian ministry, and education. Each of these experiences provided a rich foundation that has informed my work as a therapist.
Much of my training and experience involves working within the context of family, especially families in transition. A family in transition may be one who has experienced a move, a divorce, the death of a loved one, the blending of a family, or any number of life changing events. This work can be accomplished through individual, couples, or family therapy. I also offer co-parent coaching for parents who are separated or divorced and are seeking to improve their working relationship and resolve conflict related to shared parenting. I am passionate about helping people find healing as individuals and in their relationships in order to create healthy families.
My therapeutic style is open and collaborative. My goal is to partner with you, to provide encouragement, support, and tools that will help you accomplish your goals. I appreciate the practical application of cognitive behavioral therapy and the strength’s-based mindset of the solutions focused approach. My work with clients often blends the two styles along with various other therapeutic methods.
An important indicator of success in therapy is the quality of the relationship between the therapist and client. As a client you have the ability to choose a therapist whose experience and therapeutic style meet your needs. If my approach and style align with what you are looking for in a therapist I invite you to take the next step to begin our work together. I look forward to working with you!
