Dr. Lorraine R. Johnson, Ph.D., L.C.S.W.
I attended San Diego State University where I received both My Bachelors and Masters degree in Social Work. I then established a private practice as a clinical L.C.S.W. for twenty-five years. During that time I also had a strong desire to study the correlation between traditional therapy; mixed with the healing of spiritual / Christian values. That led me on a quest to pursue a Ph.D. in Christian Psychology. So I completed a three-year degree from Crenshaw Heritage College and graduate school. There I was satisfied with my theory that men and women can treat a client but only God heals.
My practice specialty included providing therapy for children, adolescents, adults and couples. I maintained offices in both San Diego, California and Beverly Hills, California. My specialty in Beverly Hills was to Entertainers and professional athletes.
I have traveled the world studying many cultures and treatment modalities, which has enriched my vast knowledge of cultural specific therapy.
My over all treatment philosophy is based on the unconditional positive regard for people and to maintain a non-judgmental culturally sensitive environment for them to explore there issues and heal. I am always honored that people trust me with their inner most vulnerabilities, and I view my overall role as their healer/ guide.
I feel that relationship building start with yourself, as you can’t give what you don’t have.
