Alexis Johnson, LMFT
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
LIC NO. 126055
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) at Foresight in San Jose, CA. I received my Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family therapy, from the University of San Francisco. Through my various experiences working in outpatient substance use programs, school-based settings, forensic mental health, and clinic-based work with various populations and age ranges, I have pursued my passion for supporting individuals in changing their lives and implementing healthy coping skills for long-term recovery. My experiences in the past have taught me the importance of witnessing great pain and great joy. I believe we cannot have one without the other. My specialty areas include grief and loss, depression, anxiety, substance use issues, life transitions, stress management, and trauma. I want to equip my clients with the hope that it is normal to feel any and every kind of emotion but also give them tools to cope effectively and learn from those emotions. I approach therapy from a trauma-informed, client-centered lense, focused on empathy, compassion, and safety to create long-term, effective changes. My approach to therapy is to provide a safe and trusting environment to uncover those human emotions, find what works or does not work, and collaborate to reach new and healthier goals for life. I have experience working with adults and older adults utilizing interventions from cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma-informed therapy approaches, strengths-based approaches, solution-focused work, art therapy, and mindfulness practices.
