ROBERT JOHNSON'S PRACTICE
Robert Johnson MA, AMFT
Psychotherapy with Individuals, Couples and Teens
My approach is curious, compassionate and mindful. My background is in Depth psychology and evidence-based practices.
You know what the #1 predictor of successful therapy is? It's not a specific orientation or intervention...it's the relationship between therapist and client.
I want to know your subjective experience and what your narrative about yourself is. I feel the closer we come to knowing and accepting ourselves, the closer we become to being a fully integrated and healthy person.
