About Laura Johnston, LCSW


Are you a young person who has had a change in their health that has left them facing challenges?  An older adult struggling with changes in your health and functional abilities?  Or a caregiver taking care of a loved one who has increased needs?  I am a clinical social worker with over ten years in medical social work and have helped support clients facing these challenges. 

I am an LCSW who graduated from UCONN School of Social Work.  I have worked with a variety of different clients in both outpatient settings and homecare settings.    I have experience in working with anxiety, depression, crisis situation and those adjusting to sudden changes in their life.  I believe in having a collaborative approach and working with you to help you achieve your goals and work through challenges.

I am passionate about helping clients see their full potential and giving them hope despite the challenges they may face therefore, I believe that everyone can work through their challenges and meet their goals with varying level of guidance.  Some of the treatment approaches I use are strength-based approach, Family System approach, CBT, and solution focused therapy and work to help empower clients and families to work towards the goals they have set for themselves.

Congratulations! You have already found the strength and taken the first step towards your goal by recognizing and acting on your need by looking for help.  I would like to help you achieve the remaining steps to be successful.

Please contact me for more information.  I look forward to working with you! Email: Laura@mhccholistichealth.hush.com; Phone: (860)390-2156.
