Tamarack Counseling





Michael Johnson, PhDMICHAEL JOHNSON, PhD,
Licensed Clinical Social Worker

My Current Practice and Life Focus
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker I offer psychotherapy to adolescents, adults and elders.

Currently, I am the Behavioral Health Director at a rural integrated medical facility in Nevada City. Clinical approaches I use include, but are not limited to, Cognitive Behavioral, Depth Psychology, Ego Psychology, Object Relations, Narrative, and Solution Focused techniques. I have an extensive background in Behavioral Health, therefore, my perspective is holistic with an understanding that the overall health and wellness of an individual has much to do with their emotional outlook and coping strategies.

As my career goals have been reached I am now devoting most of my time to teaching martial arts, specifically, Shotokan Karate. I have been fortunate enough to teach at local, state, and international levels. I have found that martial arts have enhanced my life in ways unimaginable when I started 50 years ago. I remain active as a student for life, instructor, and competitor. The study of the “Way” has also enhanced my overall clinical practice and approach to human behavior. Please go to sierrashotokan.com for more information.

One more overarching focus at this time revolves around my support for my spouse’s passion for fiber art and tamarackfiberarts.com.
