Professional statement

Dr. Woody Johnson works well with clients who are feeling overwhelmed and wrapped in chains with a heavy iron anvil causing them to feel immobilized, fatigued, and out of breath. He has provided time and time again the kind of support that helps to soothe the Sympathetic Nervous System away from the fight, flee or freeze response that most people suffer with when stress levels are beyond the threshold.

Upon beginning, he will assess the extent of your complaints and where appropriate and recommended he will diagnose your issues and collaborate with you on a Treatment Plan so that together you and he will forge a new pathway that is designed to help you maintain your focus on the things that matter most.

Dr. Woody has an extensive background that is full of relevant experiences putting him in a position to address as issues as divergent as the fog and fatigue of depression and the wreckage in the wake of a full-blown manic attack that entices his clients to excessively buy, work in all-night binges, and lose perspective on what is acceptable behavior and what is not.

Dr. Woody's approach is built on honoring his clients wisdom of the body and engaging them in activities of daily living such as mindfulness and exercise (just a couple) and as well other interventions that will sharpen focus, ground, center and begin to feel like a contributing member of the community and adjusting to new competencies and skills. He is a proponent of the mindset that everyone has everything that they need to get around the corner of an issue, coming out on the other side feeling energized and emotionally strong for the next life-mocking disruption.

Dr. Woody is conveniently located in Culver City, close to the
Westside, downtown and the beach citites. Additionally, he uses electronic telehealth options for those who would prefer the privacy of their own home and the convenience of not having to travel for the appointment. Just about any 4G device can be used, phone, tablet, or computer.


Message to clients

This is the definition of highly stressful living which translates to debilitating anxiety, overwhelming depression and a suite of other medical problems related to the deeply harmful effects of large amounts of inflammation being dumped into and around highly sensitive parts of your body.

I am here to help you not only feel better through a number of very powerful but safe interventions; but also to become the family member, business partner and friend that others love to be around and who is a joy to work with.
