Lesli A Johnson, LMFT, MA, Marriage & Family Therapist in Beverly Hills
I have seen how the powerful process of psychotherapy helps people cope with life's challenges and find inner strength. Therapy reduces the symptoms of depression, suffering and anxiety and promotes resilience. Additionally it helps improve communication and understanding in relationships. Effective psychotherapy elicits change and guides people toward living more authentically. I realize that people often seek help at their most vulnerable times. I am aware of of this as I guide my clients toward a better understanding of themselves and their inner world, thereby allowing for emotional growth, peace and the attainment of personal goals.
My practice includes adults, children, couples, families, and adolescents. I have special expertise working with the adoption community: adoptees, adoptive parents foster families and first/ birth parents. I facilitate adoption support groups in the community, speak at adoption conferences nationwide and write articles featured on Huffington Post and other publications.
Personal therapy is a unique collaboration between the therapist and the client(s). I work from a relational framework, often utilizing mindfulness based approaches and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) in my practice. Your commitment to the process will also be an important contributing factor in our work together.
