Johny Thompson, MA, MS, LMFT
Fuller Theological Seminary
Johny Thompson is a down-to-earth, culturally sensitive, and easy-to-connect-with licensed marriage and family therapist who has been working clinically since 2011 with children, adolescents, couples, families, and adults of all ages. Johny speaks conversational Spanish, and he has received both a Masters of Science in Marital and Family Therapy and a Masters of Arts in Theology and Ministry from their respective departments at Fuller Theological Seminary. Johny has experience working with severe behavioral and mental health symptoms and is not shy to work with children, adolescents, individuals, couples, and/or families in true crisis. In addition, Johny is a certified Family Wellness Instructor, a certified Prepare and Enrich Facilitator, and he has engaged in specialty training opportunities to gain a refined skill-set in working with couples, families, and those who have experienced traumas of various kinds.
Johny’s areas of interest include: helping families through seasons of distress; equipping parents with tools and insights for effective parenting; walking couples through relational conflict towards deeper love, trust and intimacy; coming along side those living with and working through chronic illness; and, finally, accompanying individuals, couples, and families through the extremely difficult and multifaceted process of divorce, with the aim of limiting the long-term emotional ramifications (especially when children are involved), and helping all involved move forward towards a greater sense of peace with and acceptance of their new norm. Johny is also passionate about working with premarital couples and those dealing with depression, anxiety, grief (loss of life, relationship, health, etc…), and issues having to do with faith and/or life transitions and stressors.
A quick message from Johny:
One of my greatest passions in life is helping children, adolescents, families, couples, and individuals of all ages move forward towards experiencing more satisfying and nurturing relationships and finding a place of greater personal inner wholeness, peace, connectivity, and love. This happens, in large part, as those involved in the therapeutic process become more attuned and connected to themselves and to one another. Additionally, this healing work occurs as those involved in therapy become more aware of their destructive patterns and start to gain the insights and tools needed to allow themselves to begin to engage in healthy and restorative patterns of love and trust both with self and others. This is where the healing begins!
As you make the very important decision of who to choose as a therapist, it would be my honor and privilege to come along side you as you journey towards a deeper experience of personal and relational growth.
Sincerely – your advocate,
