She graduated from Kempner High School and went on to get her Bachelor of Arts from St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas in 2001.

She completed her post-doctoral work at Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District (CFISD) Department of Psychological Services.
Dr. Johnson worked as a Staff Psychologist for CFISD until 2008 in which she was responsible for the assessment and delivery of counseling services for 5 campuses (1 high school, 1 middle and 3 elementary schools in the district). In 2008, she and her family relocated to Abilene, Texas where Dr. Johnson started private practice work. Dr. Johnson focused her private practice on the assessment and treatment of clinical disorders in children and teenagers including autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), reactive attachment disorder (RAD), anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and depression. She worked for 4 years in Abilene as the Clinical Director at the Ministry of Counseling and Enrichment. There she quickly developed a niche for the assessment and treatment of children, teenagers and young adults especially those with ASD. In 2012, Dr. Johnson relocated with her family to her husband’s childhood farm near Rochester, Minnesota. She earned her license in psychology in Minnesota and continued her work in private practice. Dr. Johnson started her own private practice in Rochester, Minnesota in 2012 where she quickly gained recognition for her expertise. Her referral sources included several departments from the world-renown Mayo Clinic including their Department of Psychiatry and Psychology, Family Medicine, Community Health, Social Work, Pediatrics, and Gastroenterology; as well as all local school districts and other private practitioners in the community. Dr. Johnson has built a thriving practice in Minnesota the past 7 years and is excited to come back home to Sugar Land. She hopes to continue serving and supporting children and families in need of assessment and intervention.
