The Functional Restoration Program at Healthpointe provider spotlight for this month is Dr. Stephanie L. Johnson Psy.D. Dr. Johnson is a clinical psychologist in the Functional Restoration Program (FRP). As an FRP psychologist, Dr. Johnson helps to work with patients, developing coping skills to help patients decrease symptoms of emotional suffering. Frequently, patients who have chronic pain also have high levels of depression, anxiety, and insomnia. Utilizing a cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) approach, Dr. Johnson helps patients work through their psychopathological symptoms. “I enjoy working on an integrated treatment team with medical doctors and chiropractors. Together, we work to achieve the best possible results for the patient, with the patient at the center of the team,” Dr. Johnson said. “An integrated approach, combining the medical, physical, and psychological aspects gives patients with chronic pain a great chance to improve.”
