Helping Teens and Young Adults Heal and Restore

Jacob’s Ladder is here to help you navigate your teen’s complex needs and provide you with the best clinical services and to provide renewed hope and optimism in this challenging time.
Are you worried that your teen or young adult may be stressed or depressed?
Are they refusing to communicate with you, staying up real late at night, becoming defiant and or have excessive use of gaming or social media?
Has social distancing caused them to isolate from friends and family and sleep all day?
Have they seemed to have lost all motivation and have no structure to their daily life?

Meet The Therapists

Tametra Johnson, LCSW

My name is Tametra Johnson and I am the founder of Jacobs Ladder Therapies. I grew up in the Bay Area and personally struggled with mental illness as a teenager which led me to a career helping teens. I am a Licensed Social Worker (LCSW) with over 15 years experience working with teens and mental health. I specialize in addressing a variety of concerns including anxiety, depression, academic stress, divorce/co-parenting issues, and parent-child conflict. I have also counseled adults who are struggling with family communication issues, stress and mental health issues. I’ve worked with parents who are working to support their children through substance abuse and divorce.

Sunny Wang, LMFT

Hi I’m Sunny Wang. I’m a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with more than 8 years of clinical experience in California. I specialize in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and have extensive training for the prodromal (early-psychosis) assessment among teens. With a bi-cultural background and fluency in Mandarin, I thrive to advocate for the Asian families that are struggling with generational conflicts, validation, and self-care. I am familiar with the community resources and enjoy volunteer work as a group facilitator in the NAMI family-support group.
