Sam Johnson - Stone Arch Psychology and Health Services

My approach to therapy is strength-based, client-centered, and when necessary, trauma-informed. I strongly believe that treatment is most effective when it is collaborative, and clients are met where they are in their journey towards healing and recovery. I deeply respect client autonomy and believe your contributions to the approaches and solutions we develop to overcome the difficulties and challenges you face are vital. Together we will build a strong therapeutic alliance to address the struggles, transitions and stressors that are present in your life. I incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), psychoeducation (PE), motivational interviewing, Narrative Therapy, guided imagery, mindfulness, and grounding techniques.

I work with adolescents and adults from all cultures, races, ethnicities, gender identities, sexual orientations, and socioeconomic statuses. I work with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, mood disorders, and life transitions and stressors. While I primarily work with individuals, I also have experience working with couples and families. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, and I specialize in treating individuals with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
