Loree Johnson, PhD, LMFT, graduated from Syracuse University with a master’s and doctorate in marriage and family therapy. Inspired by one of the first mental health programs to weave the basic tenets of social justice into the filed of family therapy, she started her career in community mental health and now works in private practice in Hermosa Beach, CA. As a result of her reproductive story, Dr. Johnson sought training in fertility counseling and reproductive trauma. She is certified in EMDR. Dr. Johnson has been an active member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy for more than 20 years and has served in various board positions at the state and national levels. She completed her tenure on the Anti-Racism Task Force for the Mental Health Professionals Group of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. In addition to reproductive psychology, Dr. Johnson is passional about therapists and reducing disparities in the infertility and loss communities that impact access to treatment, care, and outcomes.
