I am a Masters level Clinical Social Worker (LCSW-C), and I work with children, adolescents, and adults. I also enjoy running support groups. I believe that everyone has strengths that can support and guide them through hard times. However, during especially difficult experiences, we often forget our strengths. And it is at this point when it becomes important to have someone to confide in. Together we can identify goals that will lead you toward healthier ways of coping. Hopefully after practicing more positive and constructive coping skills, you will find yourself with a greater sense of emotional satisfaction in life.

You feel stuck. You may often find yourself feeling sad, angry, or irritable. Perhaps you aren’t sure what you’re feeling, but you know that something is wrong in your life. Maybe you’re not the person that you thought you’d become. Possibly fear and anxiety are holding you back. These feelings could be new, or so old that you cannot remember feeling differently. Regardless of how you got here, you are ready for change.

It can be a difficult decision to talk to someone about your problems. I can help people understand their relationships with others and cope with challenges in their lives. I believe that we have solutions to help ourselves and we need to find ways to discover them.

Sometimes life can be difficult and getting help from a professional can be beneficial. I approach therapy as a collaborative process aimed at helping clients find their own way to the changes they desire. Within the context of each person's life, I seek to help clients integrate various aspects of mind and body to heal and enrich their lives. I create an environment where you will feel emotionally safe to talk freely about all aspects of your life.

I believe that each person is born with incredible strengths that are sometimes buried through their interpretation of life events and personal struggles. We can become anxious, depressed, angry or overwhelmed, while dreaming of the way we really want to live and express ourselves. I can honestly say that each of you has the potential to uncover your true self; to find contentment, self-worth and self-growth. The journey can be rough, at times, but I would like to walk alongside the path with you as you re-discover your dynamic self and achieve your personal goals.

I help adults who feel caught in unhelpful thinking, behaviors or relationship patterns. Some of these patterns form and become ingrained as ways to cope with a difficult past and traumatic experiences. We can learn more about these patterns when we explore the connection between thoughts, emotions, behaviors and our body's nervous system. Clients say I have helped promote healing and growth through attentive listening and inquiry, and through guidance in increasing awareness on a deeper level. In working with me, I strive to help clients use more intention in life, feel more empowered, and have more self-worth and compassion.

Seeking out therapeutic services is healthy for our mind/body/soul connection. Just as we go to the gym to keep our bodies healthy, or puzzles to keep our mind sharp, we go to therapy to keep our connection between our mind/body/soul. Further, relationships are the center of connection: how we relate to others (family, friends, coworkers,) and the relationship we have with ourselves. It is my privilege to sit with you (or your family members) while we navigate the roadblocks and successes that make your life experience uniquely yours. It is my hope that in through this exploration and work, we can improve your relationships.

Just as music, art, food, seasons and politics resonate with people on uniquely personal levels, so too does therapy. As a Humanist, I integrate multiple treatment modalities to address metal health challenges including fear, sadness, anger, frustration, trauma, guilt, shame or feeling "stuck." The core of my practice encourages continuous translation of therapeutic insights into personal growth opportunities. Integrated interventions may be insight-oriented, cognitive-behavioral, mindful and/or supportive to help us understand who you are, where you come from, who you want to be and what gets in the way.

Welcome! I'm Joanna. I work with adolescents (16+) & adults, most frequently young adults. I particularly enjoy working with transitional issues - changes in school, jobs, family, relationships, identity, etc. Often, my clients are dealing with depression, anxiety, substance use, trauma, and/or interpersonal conflict. I value working with folks with a range of backgrounds, races, faiths, genders, sexualities, and lifestyles. My work sees people through a systems lens, recognizes the oppressive barriers to mental wellness, and encourages reflection on cultural impact. My ideal client is open minded, patient, and motivated for change.
