Before becoming a therapist, Johnson practiced corporate litigation and owned and operated a restaurant / catering business. In both roles, he was motivated by building meaningful relationships and helping clients solve complex issues. From these experiences, he learned the importance of mental wellness to address burnout, stagnation, and isolation. That insight led him to shift his focus to therapy. He completed his Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling at Hunter College. He is a member of the Asian American Psychological Association.
Johnson’s therapeutic style focuses on creating a collaborative relationship that is affirmative and non-judgmental. He views psychotherapy as an opportunity to build self-awareness, process difficult emotions, develop healthy coping strategies, and find meaning in our day-to-day experiences. His approach is grounded in the belief that every individual has the innate power to grow and heal when they open themselves to self-exploration and receive compassionate, empathetic support while doing so. Johnson is committed to helping clients seek personal development and feel connected to their bodies and their communities.
In his spare time, Johnson enjoys playing volleyball, practicing Muay Thai, and training his pandemic puppy Maya.
