I love working with kids and their parents! Loud kids, active kids, mad kids, disruptive kids, depressed or anxious kids, unhappy teenagers with failing grades, school discipline issues or drug/alcohol problems. Whatever the problem, there is usually a fair amount of pain associated with it for everyone in the family. I provide a safe, nurturing environment for kids and their parents to get help.

Want PEACE? Need JOY! Life can get pretty overwhelming, right? You keep striving, struggling to keep it under control, if even for a moment. It's exhausting! You end up feeling stuck, burdened, anxious or depressed; not knowing where to turn or what steps to take. You lash out at others or judge and condemn yourself. You feel like you are coming up short of that 'best version' of yourself; the YOU that has always seemed just out of reach. I get it, I understand and I can help. In fact, helping people like you is my life's PASSION !

My clients are children and families who are stressed due to multiple changes at home or school. They are usually able to meet most difficulties without too much struggle but now need to get a fresh perspective with some outside help. I offer sandplay therapy, a creative, nonverbal play therapy which facilitates the centering and healing process of persons regardless of age-- but is particularly appealing to children ages 5-13. My clients are changing careers, going back to school, or wanting to try something new. My clients are facing life threatening illness and want to clarify their choices.

I'm JoAnn Ponder, psychologist in private practice. I earned my Ph.D. in educational psychology in 1998, but started practicing with my M.A. in 1977. I have over 30 years of experience in working with children and adults in inpatient and outpatient treatment. I've had postgraduate training in play therapy, sandplay, infant-parent intervention, family/couples therapy, and child/adult psychoanalysis. Research has demonstrated that early experiences with significant others affect brain structure; foster individuation, self-esteem, and emotional regulation; and serve as templates for subsequent interpersonal relationships.

I help young people understand their strengths as well as their challenges, discover healthy ways to express and manage fears and insecurities, and accept support from those who care about them. Many lack important skills to successfully manage demands of school, relationships, and stressful life events, leaving them "stuck" in patterns of reactivity that can be concerning and confusing to others. Through our work and collaboration with their families and other care providers, my patients often report improved self-awareness, self-esteem, school performance, environmental support, and interactions with peers and family members.

Deciding to take those initial first steps toward seeking help through psychotherapy can be challenging. Some initial concerns may include, "How will I know if the therapist is competent?" "What if they judge me?" "Will I feel comfortable telling them what I am really feeling and thinking?" These concerns are extremely common in trying to find the right therapist for you. The key phrase is "the right therapist for YOU..." Everyone is different with different needs. I encourage you to read about my experience and the services I provide in to see if I may be the right therapist for you.

Deeper and clearer understanding unfolds as we engage in the therapeutic process with both a playful curiosity and a nonjudgmental attitude. I listen deeply and empathize with clients, while simultaneously encouraging them to confront the unhealthy roles, ineffective patterns and behaviors, and difficult emotions that are keeping them stuck in their lives.

Being curious about what makes us feel and act the way we do brings authenticity, creativity, and choices into our lives. Our self-concept and beliefs about the world are often formed in childhood and learned in our primary relationships. Unconsciously, these early experiences guide many of the decisions in our lives. I am passionate about exploring with you, the patterns that may leave you feeling confused, frustrated, or unable to move forward. Together, we will create space to cultivate conscious and caring responses to the inevitable challenging events of life.
