Parent Coach and Youth Advocate: Kevin Johnson

My name is Kevin Johnson, I have two amazing children, which have provided me with three wonderful grandchildren. My passion is serving God and helping struggling teenagers and their families rebuild their relationships.
I became very interested in this field close to 28 years ago, when I was involved in an internship with a drug addiction group. I volunteered as a mentor (big brother) in therapeutic and wilderness type programs for several years before I chose to work with adolescence as a career. Working with adolescence and their families has been an integral part of my life, which I have found very rewarding. I enjoy seeing the growth in youngpeople as they turn their lives around and become productive adults. I have a great love for the outdoors and spend as much time there as possible. When in the outdoors I enjoy fishing, hunting, and camping. For many years, I have been involved in hunting and outdoor survival education as a certified instructor. While in the outdoors, I am awed by all God has created and I am able to find peace and reconnect.
This is a time I enjoy sharing with the younger generation, as it allows me to teach them alternative coping skills. As I step into the next phase of my life, I am able to share the years of knowledge and experience I have obtained with families in crisis. It has been very humbling to find that the things I have learned over many years of working in the field is comforting to these parents and families.
God has provided many amazing things in my life and it gives me a great sense of peace to know that the knowledge I have been given can now be shared to comfort, support, and help families navigate through a very difficult time in their lives.
