Katie Johnson LCPC
Katie’s style of counseling revolves around YOU as the client. She feels that a strong therapeutic alliance and a collaborative approach to treatment are fundamental components in measuring success in therapy. Katie firmly believes that this collaborative approach, which she defines as working together to establish your goals and discover various means of reaching clients, is a key component to emotional growth. Using your identified strengths, Katie will work with you to explore which strategies work, as well as help you recognize past approaches that haven't, in order to help you move toward a more comfortable place in the healthiest and most efficient way possible.
Katie’s therapeutic style reflects a strong background in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (thoughts affect feelings which affect behaviors), with additional experience using Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (skills to regulate emotions) as well Client Centered techniques. However, Katie finds it most effective to align her counseling technique to whatever method will most benefit your needs. She uses a gentle, but direct, approach, which she believes allows you or your family members to get the most out of treatment.
