Dr. Zoe Johnson
I am a licensed clinical social worker with a PhD in Education. My experience includes supporting folks as they journey through the evolutions, changes, and transitions of life. My clinical and research expertise is specifically with, for, and on behalf of Black and Brown people. I am a Queer affirming practitioner. I support the full and beautiful spectrum of sexual, gender, and relational orientations.
I draw from a strengths-based perspective. My approach encompasses a liberatory framework that includes the reality that in the American context, most systems and institutions were not developed with Black and Brown people in mind. This truth calls for an even higher level of intentionality in attending to nuance and complexity in my work with clients. I believe this approach also serves the liberation of majority cultures – freeing people to see themselves as full, complete, humans that intuitively know what they need.
The therapeutic process is about the transformation or adjustments in your life that you wish to pursue, bringing you into congruence with your true authentic self. I consider it a profound honor to have the opportunity to walk alongside clients during this season of their journey. My name, Zoe, means life. What I know for sure is that YOU are the expert on your life.

I am licensed in Georgia by the Georgia Board of Professional Counselors, Social Workers, and Marriage & Family Therapists. Accordingly, clients receiving mental health therapy services must be Georgia residents. If you reside outside of the state of Georgia, we can discuss if consultation services would be appropriate for you. I utilize a strengths-based, liberatory, therapeutic approach for all clients I work with, both in counseling and consultation.
I help high-achievers overcome perfectionism, imposter syndrome, people-pleasing, and anxiety so they can cultivate and sustain the healed and healthy life that they deserve and desire. I work with adults ages 18 and up.
I am Black affirming and Queer affirming. As a licensed clinical social worker, I practice ethical principles based on social work’s core values of service, social justice, dignity and worth, and the importance of human relationships, integrity, and competence.
I am a self-pay provider. This is a decisive liberatory choice that prioritizes clinical autonomy for me as a practitioner and self-determination for you as a client. If you wish to engage your insurance coverage and it is applicable with your policy, you may consider utilizing out-of-network benefits with your insurer. I am always happy to provide the necessary documentation for clients to pursue reimbursement for services in this way independently. Additionally, mental health therapy is an eligible expense with your flexible spending account (FSA) or your health savings account (HSA) to offset out-of-pocket costs.
