Anxiety, Depression, Sex Therapy and Compulsive Sexual Behavior

Dr. Philip Jai Johnson received his doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from McGill University in Montreal, and subsequently completed two postdoctoral fellowships at acclaimed institutions: the University of Minnesota’s Program in Human Sexuality (PHS) and Columbia University in New York City. At PHS, Dr. Johnson acquired over 3000 hours of rigorous training in the areas of sex therapy, compulsive sexual behavior, and transgender health (adults and adolescents). Following this, Dr. Johnson completed a research fellowship with the LGBT Health program at Columbia University in NYC. As a licensed psychologist in New York State, Dr. Johnson worked with low-income clients at the New York Presbyterian Hospital, and with families of transgender teens through the Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital.

Dr. Johnson’s areas of specialization include: sex therapy, couples therapy, compulsive sexual behavior, and transgender health. He has worked extensively with couples struggling with sexual difficulties as well as infidelity and betrayal, and has facilitated groups for transgender clients and men with compulsive sexual behavior. In addition, he also specializes in treating individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, and binge eating disorder. Dr. Johnson’s therapeutic approach involves carefully tailoring evidence-based interventions to the specific needs of his clients. At the same time, he relies on the therapeutic relationship to encourage exploration, and his clients describe him to be warm, compassionate, and deeply caring.

In addition to his position in private practice, Dr. Johnson is employed as a psychologist in supervised practice with the Adult Gender Identity Clinic at the Centre for Addiction in Mental Health (CAMH), and maintains active memberships with the Canadian Psychological Association and the Society for Sex Therapy and Research.
