Johnson Arloo MS., LPC.

Expert Behavioral and Substance Abuse Counselor in Alabama

Johnson Arloo is a Licensed Professional Counselor who has worked in mental health for seven years. After working in advertising for eleven years in Ghana as a radio and TV producer/director/copy writer, he immigrated to the United States of America in August, 2008. At his visa interview, he recalls that the first question he was asked by the Consular Officer at the embassy was: “What’s the connection between psychology and advertising?” He reflected for a moment on the fact that his background had given him a unique perspective on the things that really mattered in life: love, humanity, and the timeless injunction to be each other’s keeper. “Having worked in advertising for eleven years, “ he remembers telling the officer, “ I feel jaded; I want to do something more positive with my life.” And that has been his guiding principle since then; that mental health is indispensable to the well-lived life.

Mr. Arloo has expertise in addiction, anxiety/ depression, behavioral issues, coaching, positive psychology, and related areas. He has been an adjunct faculty at Alabama A & M University for the past five years, teaching research at the undergraduate level in the Psychology Department.

In his leisure time, and also to maintain mental wellbeing, Mr. Arloo likes to read and write, travel, cook, engage in light workouts, and watch movies. He is also an avid entrepreneur.
