Dr. Johnson has excelled in the field of psychology and in the ministry for over four decades. As a clinical psychologist, Dr. Johnson has worked in various agencies ranging from social service agencies to community health agencies. He provided superior service in the Michigan Department of Corrections for 16 years as an institutional psychologist.

As a spiritual psychologist, he trains law enforcement agencies throughout Wayne County in successfully coping with trauma, stress, depression, mental health and signs and symptoms of mental illness. In addition, Dr. Johnson responds to calls from the community police officers (CPOS) in his area to provide his services for various reasons as when a police officer suffers a heart attack and police officers or staff who worked around him need debriefing and when conflicts transpire between neighbors, riding along police patrols to help with the homeless.

Keenly interested in community affairs, Dr. Johnson’s memberships include the American Psychological Association and the Association of Black Psychologists. He maintains that his love of life and love of people has contributed to his success. To define his idea of loving people, his city and the world, Dr. Johnson uses the Hebrew term for love, “ahavah,” which is derived from the Hebrew word, “ehav,” which means “I will give.”
