Hi, my name is Sarah Johnson, and I would like to journey with you through life’s changes,
trials, and triumphs.


I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a master’s degree in social work from Illinois State
University. I specialize in trauma counseling, and I am certified to work with children,
adolescents, and adults. My past experiences allowed me to be a community outreach therapist
offering therapeutic interventions in schools, residential facilities, community centers, shelters,
and hospitals. I have extensive experience working with those who may struggle with PTSD,
self-harm, substance abuse, and other trauma related challenges. My therapeutic practice
includes, but is not limited to Trauma Informed Care, Strengths Based Therapy, Cognitive
Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Play Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy
(DBT).


Remember: “Without change, there would be no butterflies.”


I believe life’s journey can be unpredictable. While there are no avoiding life’s inevitable twists
and turns, there are tools to help navigate through them. Let’s walk through this journey together
learning from the past, embracing the present, and preparing for the future.
