Michael Johnson, PhD, SPSB, Psychologist in Austin
I specialize in the treatment of sexual addiction (Problematic Sexual Behavior - PSB) and have for 14 years, treating hundreds of addicts. I am certified in treating sex addiction (S-PSB). I have more than 100 hours of advanced training in the treatment of sex addiction. PSBs reflect underlying problems in relationships, emotional attachment, affect management, and impulse control. Treatment engages the whole person, not merely suppression of problem behaviors. Therapy requires compassion, acceptance, and respect. I combine knowledge and wisdom with understanding, creativity, and humor in a down-to-earth, practical approach. I am also an Executive and Life Coach.
I am an active, intuitive, no-nonsense therapist who helps people achieve their goals through empathic listening and guidance regarding how their thinking, feeling, and acting restrict and distort their lives. I connect easily with people. This allows folks to open up about their histories, conflicts, frustrations, and suffering
Problematic Sexual Behaviors often involve codependency, other addictions, depression, anxiety, infidelity, educational, employment, and relationship problems. Often these issues and other issues become the focus of treatment. I employ various approaches including client-centered, cognitive behavioral, solution-focused, psycho-dynamic, existential, family systems, 12-Step, mindfulness based interventions, and hypnosis.
