Hi, I’m Adriel.


about dr. johnson

I became a therapist because I believe that everyone deserves a gentle, nonjudgmental listening ear while attempting to problem solve life’s difficult moments.

For me, the therapeutic relationship is a special connection that allows for creativity, exploration, discovery, and empowerment. I have had the privilege of establishing this therapeutic connection with individuals of all ages, and I am grateful for each opportunity to work with clients from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences.  I genuinely love being a therapist and wholeheartedly believe in the power of the therapeutic process. It is my dream that, one day, everyone will experience the transformational impact of psychotherapy.
