Christy Johnston earned her Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work from Arizona State University. She works with children, adolescents and adults who are working through depression, anxiety, emotional regulation, addiction, trauma and other mental health and emotional difficulties.
Christy believes trust and rapport between a therapist and her clients are one of the most important aspects of therapy. She uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness and Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) to help clients develop resilience and belief in one’s ability to recover and find even greater happiness after experiencing conflict, grief, loss, abuse, trauma and other difficulties in life. Changing our negative thought loops and replacing them with thoughts of who we truly are can help build a foundation of self-love and esteem.
Christy is the mother of five children and has eight adorable grandkids! She grew up in the midwest, and has lived all over the United States, as well as in England. She recently moved to Utah from California, and loves spending time with family and friends.
