Why Kimberly Johnson chose to be in the helping profession

Since 1995, I've been dedicated to the helping profession, driven by a profound desire to make a lasting positive impact on people's lives. Throughout my career, I've worked in various clinical settings, collaborating with individuals, groups, and families across diverse age groups, cultures, and religious communities. This extensive experience has allowed me to witness the transformative power of therapy and solidified my commitment to this field.

Kimberly Johnson's approach

In my therapy practice, I merge humanistic and cognitive theories to create a therapeutic approach that is holistic and client-centered. It's my firm belief that healing begins with clients at the center of their journey. By combining these theories, I offer a well-rounded approach that caters to the unique needs of each individual. Your therapy experience with me will be characterized by empathy, active listening, and a commitment to your well-being.

When you choose me as your therapist, you can expect a welcoming, non-judgmental, and compassionate space where your needs are the focal point. My expertise spans a wide range of areas, from assisting with adjustment and wellness self-management to addressing severe mental illness, trauma, compassion fatigue, loss, and infertility.

Together, we will tailor our sessions to meet your specific needs and goals, empowering you on your path to healing and personal growth.

Kimberly Johnson's experience working with the Jewish community

Over the years, I've had the privilege of working closely with the Jewish community, gaining invaluable experience and insights. My work has spanned various facets, including trauma and crisis response, which has led me to become an active member of organizations such as the NYC Medical Reserve Corps REST team, Nassau County Medical Reserve Corps, Nassau County CERT, American Red Cross Disaster Mental Health team, and the Green Cross Team. My role as an Assistant Professor at Touro College's Department of Behavioral Science's Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program, where I've been an educator since 2007, has further strengthened my commitment to fostering compassion fatigue awareness and education within diverse backgrounds.
