Sierra Johnson MA TLLP
Sierra Johnson possesses a Temporary Limited License to practice psychotherapy in the State of
Michigan under the supervision of a licensed psychologist.
Originally from Baltimore, Maryland, Sierra has shown an intensive interest in the psychological
mind and the effects different environments, situations, and genetics can affect an individual.
Throughout her experiences in Baltimore, she became increasingly aware of social circumstances
and disadvantages that plagued inner-city youth and individuals, without access to mental health
services. Coming from a background in Applied Behavioral Analysis based therapy with
children with autism, she possesses a range of skills stemming humanistic psychotherapy, CBT,
and mindfulness, to ABA therapy and conditioning. She is currently working to become a
Limited Licensed Psychologist after completing the EPPP.
Sierra earned her Master’s degree at the Michigan School of Psychology in 2019, after
completing a practicum in the child and family wing at Lincoln Behavioral Services, a
community mental health facility. Practicum at Lincoln Behavioral also included working with
clients that needed affordable housing, food, and care, as well as organizing drives to give
children Christmas gifts that would not have seen gifts otherwise. She has been RBT (Registered
Behavior Technician) certified, and remains involved in the Trevor Project and other LGBT
groups around Michigan. She has written and presented essays on Dream Analysis, childhood
trauma, and the importance of psychological treatment for children and adolescents.
