Hi, I’m Dr. Tabitha Johnson.
I help couples, pastors and churches improve and strengthen marriages and individual mental health.
I’m a marriage and family therapist and business owner, and a happily married wife to my husband, Derek. When I was 16 years old, all I thought about was getting married, and I was convinced that I would be married when I was 18. Well, things didn’t go as I had planned. Since I wasn’t married at 18, my parents convinced me to go to college (thank God). During my studies, I fell in love with the field of marriage and family. I pursued both master’s and doctorate degrees in the field, going straight through and completing eight years of school without any time off (I had no life except for school)! Finally, after multiple boyfriends (lots of Mr. Wrongs), three college degrees and relocating to various states for school and jobs four times, I married the love of my life when I was 29.
During the 18 years of being in the field of marriage and family, I have specialized in helping couples. I own a private practice in Jacksonville, Florida where we help thousands of individuals and couples improve their lives and relationships. We also partner with a local church, Elevate Life Church, to provide mental health counseling services directly to pastors and staff members.
My heart has always been to help pastors and churches, and now I get to combine my passions of ministry and mental health. My goal is to help empower churches to have resources at their disposal to efficiently help church members who need education and resources. In addition, my hope is that this reduces liability for the local church, as they become more educated and informed about mental health.
I’ve worked with countless couples and churches, and I’m excited to have the opportunity to work with you.
