Ruby B. Johnson LCSW, LCDC
I received my Bachelors of Social Work degree in 2003 from Texas Women's University and my Masters of Social Work degree in 2004 from the University of Texas at Arlington. My professional career and home has been in the Dallas/Fort Worth area since 2003. My professional and service roles have included clinical practitioner, community and professional development educator, and graduate/under graduate adjunct professor.
Most of my therapeutic work has been in psychiatric hospitals and intensive outpatient settings. Additionally, I have worked in substance use/chemical dependency residential programs. My area of expertise is addictions, that includes substance use, sexual compulsive/problematic behaviors, and other intimacy disorders. I have worked with adolescents and adults with depression, bipolar disorders, anxiety disorders, thought process disorders, and obsessive-compulsive disorders.
I decided to start my practice in April 2014. As a result of working with diverse popuations within facility based services, my practice welcomes, includes, and affirms creative family and relationship structures (consensual non-monogamous, polyamorous, and open relationships), couples (married, partnerships, and all unions), all lifestyle orientations, interracial couples, multi-cultural relationships/families. I provide therapeutic support, care, and intervention with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, gender variant/non-binary, queer, and same gender loving communities.
