Knute Johnson, PhD, Psychologist in San Francisco
I work with adolescents, families, and adults; especially boys not feeling good and unable to express, adults struggling with relationship conflict, and anger within families.
I approach difficult relational problems with gentle irreverence, and sometimes playfulness. You never know what will happen in therapy, but looking at it together with courage we make space to grow. I consider uncovering emotions and meaning important for change. I can help with destructive patterns and nagging trauma.
I like working flexibly with families, for example with a child, the whole family, and the parents in different sessions. I offer treatment in Spanish and enjoy working with bilingual families.
