Beth Johnson, PsyD, LP

Practice Philosophy

Dr. Johnson is the founder and director of Lakefront Wellness Center, S.C.  A prominent treatment philosophy from the clinic’s inception is that of holistic treatment. Simply put, holistic treatment means that optimal care is delivered to an individual when mental health professionals are prepared to integrate and understand all relevant aspects of a person’s functioning (i.e., body, mind, spirit, emotions, relationships and behavior).

When asked how she helps people change, Dr. Johnson, stated:
“Before change can be offered, I believe I investigate how each individual thinks about their problem and how they view the obstacles to their own fulfillment. I need to understand the power that is assigned to the obstacles and the beliefs that generate fear that gets in the way of change. Validation of feelings is a beginning place for building trust. I can begin to help when you trust that I ‘get’ you! My approach is a balance of using intuitive and clinical skills. I want to help you see underlying needs and motives and I steer away from solutions that just target symptoms only. In other words, I want to get at the real problem. Sometimes change requires offering a viewpoint that no one else can see unless they are committed to your relief.”
