Johanna Pavlogianis, LMFT, ATR
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
LIC NO. 121568
San Diego Downtown
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and Registered Art Therapist (ATR).. I received my Master’s Degree in Psychology with an emphasis on Marriage and Family Therapy and specialization in Art Therapy from Phillip’s Graduate University in Chatsworth, California. I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Studio Art at Stony Brook University in New York. I have experience working in both private practice and School-Based Mental Health settings. I have experience and a passion for working with adolescents and young adults through individual therapy while incorporating art. Art Therapy can give voice to my client’s inner thoughts and feelings that they may not have the words for. It is an expressive experience that can assist my clients with self-awareness and help highlight their resiliency and insight.
I am an eclectic therapist but base my approach from a client-centered perspective. I believe in providing a safe space, genuineness, empathy, and unconditional positive regard in order for clients to explore and express themselves freely. I aim to assist my clients in finding their strength and empower them in order to create the changes they desire. As a first generation American of Latinx immigrants, I am culturally aware and sensitive to the hardships this population may experience. I am also bilingual and offers sessions in Spanish.
