About

People assume from my credentials that I do a certain type of work. I can, and do, often treat depression and anxiety and addiction and a host of other mental health issues, but I've taken it to a whole new level.

So what do I do?

I help people achieve more success in their lives.

Oh, wow, that sounds a little arrogant, but when you meet me, you’ll find that’s not the case at all. I am soft- spoken, introverted, a great listener, and genuinely interested in you and your success. When we talk, I’m not diagnosing, I’m looking for strengths, talents, and opportunities. Often I will see treasures in you that you don’t see in yourself.

Most of the time we are unaware of our own brilliance.

I look for opportunities that are hidden or suppressed. Then connect dots that are often shrouded or masked by life, choices, or circumstances.

Let’s find new opportunities for you. Call 817-600-7611.

Tina Johnston, Psychotherapist and Master Potentialist, LPC, NCC, GCDF, EVGP

Tina Johnston is the Director of NewStarts, where she is a licensed psychotherapist trained in all aspects of mental health conditions and disorders. She is also the President and co-founder of the Wellness Association of Flower Mound. As a visionary entrepreneur and innovative outside-the-box thinker, she uses dynamic progressive techniques, including experiential learning, adventure therapy, ReVisioning, positive psychology, hypnotherapy, and therapeutic life coaching. While her specialty is Career Development and Advancement, she has taken this to a whole new level in searching for ways to help individuals be successful in their personal lives as well as in their careers and professional lives.

Tina is also the founder of the Master Potentialist® movement – an initiative to change the way we view and treat mental health issues. This is a new effort to find ways to treat mental health issues with more of a wellness approach that provides faster and more comprehensive results. Master Potentialists are mental health practitioners who are challenging current methods, many of which were set by insurance companies years ago and have not changed for decades.

She works primarily with business leaders in helping them uncover new opportunities for themselves and their companies to reach maximum potential. She strives for win-win scenarios and seeks to collaborate and liaise with peers and other professionals.

PERSONAL PHILOSOPHIES:

I believe in:

  • FLOW – filling people up with positivity and encouragement, so that they “overflow” into others.
  • Win-win scenarios – love to see people be successful.
  • Quality referrals – there are times I may refer you to a specialist with special skills or knowledge.
  • Personal potential – we all have it, more than we even know.
  • Law of Attraction – what you reap you will sow, what you seek you will find - problem is sometimes we don’t know exactly what we are looking for and tend to settle.
  • Law of Attraction (simple version) - what you put out there is what you’ll get back.
  • Visionaries – they make us think outside the box and consider creative solutions, they keep us from getting stuck.
  • Implementers – without them, nothing would get done.
  • Leaders – we are all leaders, even if the only person you are leading is yourself – who is probably the hardest person to lead.
  • Bad things happen – but good can come from them.
  • Life happens to everyone – no one is immune, no matter how smart, how successful, how revered, how popular.
  • We learn more from failures than successes. We also learn more from painful experiences than happy ones. Darn.
  • Failure will happen – because we are human, and it’s how we learn. Failure is not the problem, it’s our perspective. Try and try again is how we succeed. Doing the same thing over and over but expecting a different outcome, is just, well, dumb.
