Emily Johnson, MSW, LICSW

School-Based Mental Health Supervisor

My approach to psychotherapy is collaborative: I work together with youth and young adult clients to realize their strengths and talents and work through barriers to change. I value lived experiences of clients and their parents, while using my professional training to create safe spaces that empower clients to work through past traumas, gain acceptance for themselves, and move forward in a direction they are proud of.
