About Dr. Charles Johnston:

Charles Johnston splits his time between his Seattle-based private psychiatric practice and his continuing leadership with regard to broader cultural concerns. In his role as “cultural psychiatrist” he consults, writes, speaks, and teaches about the cultural tasks ahead. He also collaborates with others in the continued development and articulation of Creative Systems Theory and contributes occasional commentary through the Cultural Maturity Blog and the Ask the Cultural Psychiatrist YouTube channel.

Dr Johnston’s private practice work is primarily with individuals. Its focus ranges from work with fairly traditional therapeutic issues to mentoring of people attempting to provide cultural leadership. He is particularly recognized for his work with people of creative temperament. His appreciation for today’s changing cultural realities and differences in how they affect us brings an important subtlety to his work.
