DR. JOHNSON GEARS HER THERAPY APPROACHES TOWARD the presenting needs of each child. She may integrate several therapeutic techniques to find one which works for a child’s unique situation. Dr. Johnson primarily uses cognitive behaviour therapy, play therapy and sand therapy techniques. This can mean, especially for younger children, that therapy can occur through play, art, drama, or a variety of other tactics. Young children lack the ability to analyze their problems in the same way that adults do, so specific therapy techniques may be employed that will help Dr. Johnson best address the communicative abilities of the child. As children age, Dr. Johnson may employ a number of methods, such as cognitive behaviour therapy to help kids work through their problems.
