Welcome to Johnson Behavioral Health online. I’m Dr. Josephine Johnson, a licensed clinical psychologist practicing in Livonia, Michigan, a western suburb of Detroit. The office is in the Burton Executive Park, located on the east side of Farmington Road just north of 6 Mile Road. It is easily accessible from I-275, I-696, I-96, and Grand River.
My approach draws upon my training in psychodynamic, humanistic, and behavioral therapies, but I adapt my work to the client’s needs and goals. I find cognitive behavior therapy to be particularly useful in helping clients determine what their goals are and how to reach them. The concept that thoughts cause our feelings and behaviors, not external things, like people, situations, and events, is powerful because we can change the way we think to improve our outlook even if the situation does not change. Johnson Behavioral Health is where that change begins…
I work with individuals, couples, and families; provide consultation to agencies and businesses; provide professional supervision. As a doctoral level clinical psychologist I have been trained to address a wide range of issues including mood disorders such as depression, anxiety, and stress; behavior disorders; relationship concerns; and parenting problems. I do not treat substance use disorders.
