Marisa Johnson is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and works as a Behavioral Health Consultant (BHC) on our Integrated Behavioral Health team. BHCs at Community Care Physicians are licensed mental health providers and social workers. Many are embedded within our practices working side by side with your doctor and health care team in delivering you the best “whole person” healthcare possible. Marisa is a member of the American Psychological Association and Mental Health Counselors Association of New York.
Marisa’s favorite aspect of being a BHC is not knowing what each day will bring. She enjoys supporting a variety of different people with different challenges, from grief and PTSD to personality disorders and depression. Marisa is interested in various types of treatment, like cognitive behavioral therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy. When providing care to patients, she likes getting to know patients, making a connection with them, and learning about their lives.
