Not accepting new clients.

Lewis Johnson, M.S., NCC, CTP, CET II (he/him/his) is an Experiential Trauma Therapist with a Master of Science degree in Pastoral Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Neumann University.  He is an EMDR-trained therapist and a Certified Trauma Professional. Lewis believes that every client with whom he engages has the answers that they seek within themselves; however, they sometimes need a companion to provide additional guidance and support as they unravel the threads within their life that have caused them to feel “stuck.” Through collaboration and communication between the client and himself, Lewis sees the therapeutic alliance as the key to a client’s growth and progress. Lewis weaves in psychodrama and other experiential techniques in the work he does with clients to help them verbalize or change the narrative of their story.

Lewis specializes in issues of trauma, religion/spirituality, grief/loss, anxiety, depression, and matters affecting men. He is passionate about working with individuals among the LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, and gender expansive) community and the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) community. As an LGBTQIA+ affirming therapist, self-identifying Black cisgender male, and spiritual being, Lewis actively engages in ongoing education to ensure he is providing his clients with support that is representative of their unique and beautiful stories. If an individual wants to delve into the religious or spiritual parts of their story, he creates a safe and brave space for one to explore.

“I recognize that your journey is unique. Exploring past, present, and future chapters of your story can be intimidating and overwhelming, but I believe we can work together to maintain the wellness of your mind, body, and soul during it. I see myself as a companion on your journey; I am there to walk by your side as you discover and learn new and exciting aspects of your story. I look forward to traveling with you.”

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

Lewis’ typical fee is $150 for individual therapy (53 min); he can work on a sliding scale if needed. Although he only works on a self-pay basis, he is able to provide documentation for clients to submit for out-of-network reimbursement from their insurance provider.
