L. Martin Johnson MBA, PsyD

Like most mediators, mediation is not my first career.  However, looking back I can't imagine a path that could have better prepared me for the role.  I have worked as a Fortune 500 executive, a business consultant, co-owner of a family run small business and the owner and director of a private mental health clinic. 


Throughout my career, my work and my joy has been helping individuals and organizations resolve conflicts and challenges and put them back on a solid path forward in their chosen direction.  Whether it was finding ways to grow a product line in a shrinking market, helping to pivot a business in a new direction, successfully navigating through economic downturns and pandemics or helping people resolve conflicts within themselves or between themselves and others; my greatest sense of satisfaction comes from finding ways to resolve the issues that hold us back and return to the journey of growth and prosperity.
