ABOUT CATANIA JOHNSON

From a very young age, I knew that I wanted to become a therapist. I felt an innate need to understand the human experience and why we do what we do. Although, one person alone will never understand the complexities of the human experience as it can look vastly different for each individual. My goal as a therapist is to remain accepting and open-minded.

After struggling with substance use for eighteen years of my life, I began my personal journey in recovery. This experience sparked my passion for working in addiction recovery. My life experience has been invaluable in working with others that struggle or have struggled with addiction. My goal is to create a safe space for my clients to discover, develop, process and grow into the amazing humans they have always been, but had lost a sense of, due to substances. It is my personal belief that addiction rarely exists independently. Addiction is generally a symptom of something bigger: trauma, self-medicating, mental health, etc.

When I am not in the office, one could find me spending time with my husband and kiddos. I love being outdoors; hiking, longboarding, and watching the sunset, are three of my favorites. Amateur photographer. Research nerd.
