Brian Johnson, MA

Limited Licensed Psychologist

“I have had a varied educational and work experience including designing missile systems for the Navy, design and operation of nuclear power plants, Community Mental Health school-based therapy, Borgess Hospital Adolescent Program therapist, and Private Practice. These experiences have given me much insight and the ability to ‘meet people where they are at’ and understand their concerns.”
