Dr. Sarah Johnson is a licensed clinical psychologist at PVD Psychological Associates. She is licensed in Rhode Island and offers online therapy to individuals and families residing within the state, in addition to my in-person practice in Rhode Island. She provides individual and family therapy to children, adolescents, young adults, and adults of all ages. Her areas of interest and specialization include anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem issues, relationship issues, academic and behavioral challenges, management of ADHD, and parenting difficulties. Dr. Johnson incorporates evidence-based practices such Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI), using a warm, supportive, and nonjudgmental approach.
In addition, Dr. Johnson conducts comprehensive clinical and psychological assessments to understand a child or individual’s strengths and weaknesses and assist with recommendations for treatments and services needed. Her training in psychological and achievement testing as well as my prior work in academic setting has provided her with invaluable knowledge that informs her clinical work.
