Aja Johnson, AMFT

Therapist in Berkeley, CA

Meet Aja (pronounced Asia): Hello! I’m Aja Johnson, an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (#110352) currently under supervision by the Clinical Director Beth Hermosillo, LMFT (#51152) at Evergreen Counseling. I received my undergraduate degree from University of Nevada, Reno and my graduate degree from University of Oregon. I have been practicing therapy since 2017.

My Therapy Specialties in Berkeley:

I specialize in working with adolescents, young adults, couples and families dealing with issues related to:  

  • anxiety and depression
  • self-esteem and body image
  • self-identity development
  • life transitions
  • family & relationship conflict
  • issues related to racism & oppression
  • competitive and elite athletics sports stress

I also hold a particular interest in working with Generation Z and Millenials, as well as individuals who identify as being a person of color or multiracial/bi-racial.  I am LGBTQ affirmative and welcome clients from all cultural backgrounds and identities.

What drew me to this work:  I believe that all humans innately have the capacity for change and growth. I also believe that each and every one of us has a unique story that helps to shape our viewpoint of the world. In life, our stories can at times become complicated and overwhelming and in these moments, we may need to seek help in order to find clarity. Therapy creates a unique opportunity for individuals from similar or different backgrounds to work together to help overcome different stressors in life, as well as to celebrate moments of strength and resilience. Theoretically, I work from a systemic framework which allows me to look not only at a specific situation or incident, but to look at your life and your story from a holistic viewpoint. In therapy, we will work together to help you achieve the goals that feel most salient. I am excited and honored to be a part of your journey. 

My style: Client-centered, non-judgmental, direct, and compassionate. 

Services I offer: In-person individual therapycouples counseling, and family therapy as well as online video counseling for residents of California.
