She/Her/HersClinical Psychologist, PsyD Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
Dr. Alicia Johnson is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with a current focus on transitional aged youth and adults. Dr. Johnson’s clients tend to seek therapy to work through issues including depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, family conflict, identity issues, difficult transitions, or histories of trauma. Dr. Johnson is particularly passionate about serving clients of color, and the LGBTQ+ community.
In her work with clients, Dr. Johnson takes into account the whole person and their potential for growth, helping them to get in touch with their own inner wisdom in order to move towards change. She holds her clients in the context of their individual identities, and considers the impact that racism, homophobia, and other forms of oppression have on mental health. Her goal is to support clients in finding their voice, taking ownership of their stories, becoming more fully themselves, and standing more confidently in their personal power.
Dr. Johnson’s approach can be described as warm, supportive, and insight-oriented. She aims to empower her clients by building bridges between the past and the present, using the therapy relationship as a means for understanding internal patterns, and what may be keeping those patterns in place. This can lead to deeper self-awareness, paving the way for growth and the possibility of new ways of being and relating to the world.
Dr. Johnson earned her PsyD from the Wright Institute in Berkeley. Her experience has included working in elementary and middle schools throughout the Bay Area, as well as community mental health clinics, and San Francisco General Hospital. She has served as a Clinic Director and supervisor to graduate students in training, in addition to working in a group private practice. Outside of her clinical work, Dr. Johnson has provided training to other practitioners in the areas of child development, complex trauma, and Healing Justice.
