Five Point is excited to introduce Emmy Johnson, the newest member of our psychotherapy team. Emmy is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor with over 8 years of experience. She has worked in a wide variety of settings from homeless shelters to a group private practice. Emmy earned her MSW from the Jane Addams College of Social Work at the University of Illinois at Chicago and completed her clinical internship at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. She specializes in working with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, grief and loss, relationship issues, stress and life transitions.
Emmy utilizes a client-centered, eclectic approach to therapy, drawing from both psychodynamic and behavioral theories. She believes you are the expert on your life and views therapy as a collaborative process between the therapist and client. Emmy has a particular interest helping people slow down and figure out ways to more fully engage in the life they are already living by integrating mindfulness when she can. When addressing mental health concerns, Emmy believes it is imperative to acknowledge the mind-body connection, and is excited to join the team at Five Point Holistic Health, where she can collaborate with practitioners of other disciplines to help individuals on their journey to improve both their physical and mental health.
Emmy's appointments are bookable online beginning Monday, January 25th. Her current hours are Mondays from 6-9 pm, but she will be adding Wednesdays 5-9 pm beginning February 10th. Her appointments last one hour for $90 and packages or sliding scale based on need are available. You can contact her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
