Stephanie E. Johnson, MA
Hello and thank you for being curious about who am I, what I do and how I can help you. I am a native and current resident of Atlanta, GA. My deep rooted interest in mental health stems from learning as a child that my mother was diagnosed with schizophrenia. From high school forward, I remained intrigued by human behavior and schizophrenia in particular. I began my trajectory into the mental health field at Dillard University where, in 2003, I earned a B.A. in Psychology. I continued my training to become clinical psychotherapist at the University of Northern Iowa where I completed an M.A. in Clinical Psychology. Every since, I’ve been devoted to helping people live their best quality of life no matter their mental health conditions.
Over the past 15 years, I’ve worked in several capacities professionally. Early into my career, I was a group therapist for adjudicated youth and a suicide prevention and intervention group therapist with African American women. For the majority of my career, I managed psychiatric clinical research studies on early interventions for first episode psychosis and schizophrenia spectrum disorders predominantly with African American patients. This work is where I learned how difficult it was for people to navigate the mental health care system, get the most appropriate help that met their needs best, and where I witnessed stigma within the healthcare system that often led to patient disengagement. As a result, I honed and significantly enhanced my engagement, interviewing, and screening skills. These skills are the foundation to the unique approach I use with consultation and coaching clients now.
I decided to use my clinical skills in an unconventional way to help people navigate the mental health care system with more relief and hope. As a result, NaviPsych was born in 2015. One of my greatest skills is meeting you where you are with empathy. My goal as your Mental Health Consultant is to listen attentively and deeply to discover your core mental health needs, to identify and recommend the professionals who best fit your needs and guide you through the steps to retaining help while eliminating the stress in the process. These same skills are used to help organizational leaders assess and strategize to achieve a workplace culture that supports healthy psychological well-being.
As a Mental Health Coach, my objective is to help you understand more about your emotional, psychological and behavioral roadblocks. Then, teach you how to improve skills you already have to live at your fullest and most authentic potential.
Why should you hire me? I’m an intuitive, compassionate, and empathic listener who engages genuinely with the sole purpose of helping you get to the core of your needs. If you want to start your mental health healing journey, let me be your navigator.
