About Nicole Lloyd Johnson, PA-C, CAQ-PSY

Nicole believes that some form of mindcare is imperative for a sound mind and body. She works hard to provide a safe space and be a source of comfort and stability while giving high-quality care to any patient that comes to her for help. She feels it is important to involve patients in the decision-making process when it comes to treatment and takes the time to educate her patients and share her knowledge about mental healthcare. Wanting to make sure that the patient feels comfortable and confident in a treatment plan, she will lay out a few appropriate options and discuss the pros and cons of each.

I already have recommended mind path to several people. The office people who check you in are so nice and caring. The mental health care workers are wonderful. The building and location is great. You can get text and voice messages for appointment reminders. Nicole and Victoria have been god sends in helping me get my life together and helped to allow me to feel mentally well adjusted and balanced. Nicole and Victoria never rush the appointment. They make me feel comfortable and like my feelings and concerns are validated. Mind path has changed my life for the better. I wish something like this was available to me when I was younger, but I m truly grateful it exists now and is so accessible. The office staff and mental health care workers at mind path are the most helpful, caring, and comforting professionals I ve ever worked with in my experience in mental health and medical care.

Great first impression. It was a very nice thorough experience. Made my 15 year old feel right at ease. Thank you for the TLC.


August 24, 2020

It was so amazing not having to drive to the appointment, as a single, working mom... that was a HUGE blessing. And my daughter (the patient) is so used to using her device socially that this was a very comfortable way to have the appointment, from her bedroom. Nicole was so amazing. It didn't feel like she was on the other side of a screen, it was a very positive interaction. She was able to be sensitive to my daughter and provide very good guidance to both of us. Super impressed with her! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!
