Skyler Johnston

Licensed Professional Counselor

Welcome! I help youth, adults and families to navigate difficult times, process past traumas and become aware of unhelpful habits and thinking. My goal is to assist the client in becoming their best self and to identify the most efficient way to bring wellness into their life.

My Approach

I have undergone numerous trainings in trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) and collaborative problem solving (CPS) and meet with a consultant weekly to ensure model fidelity. I’ve found these to be extremely helpful tools but of course everyone is different. For that reason, I work to adapt a unique approach depending on the client’s wants and needs. In general, I try to build a strong genuine relationship where people can feel safe and understood.

My Background

I hold a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from Lewis and Clark College. My undergraduate work was in psychology and creative writing and I have been passionate about personal development and mentorship for over twelve years. I have five years’ experience working with individuals across a wide spectrum of presenting concerns. My practice is further backed by extensive academic study of counseling theories, trauma informed care, psychopharmacology, couples counseling and substance abuse.
