Joanne Koster, MEd, MSW, LCSW, CCS, CHt, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Greenville
As a psychotherapist with over 30 years of experience, the focus of my work is with individuals who have chronic and life-limiting illness, chronic pain, grief/loss, traumatic loss, PTSD, complex psychological trauma, dissociative disorders and DID. I also work with elders and their families in the arenas of aging and care giving. I am happy to refer for couples/marital therapy. At this time, all new clients must be directly referred by their primary care provider.
I work from a Bio-psycho-social-spiritual systems approach using strategies from Cognitive Behavioral, Transactional Analysis, Redecision therapy, EMDR and Hypnotherapy.
With a twelve year background in Medical Care Management, I will assist individuals/families as they plan for future health care decisions and offer care management on a fee for service basis. I am also a North Carolina notary public and will notarize Advance Directives with appropriate witnesses and signatures.
