I LOVE when BetterHelp asks me to review Miss Jo Ann because it gives me a chance to brag on her and shout from the rooftops how grateful I am for her.
She is kind, wise, and gentle. She tells you how it is in the most mild and respectful way possible. She will sit with you while you just cry if that’s what you need. She will PUSH you and then remind you that you deserve to work hard for YOURSELF. She consistently listens and then comes up with advice or a solution, she’s not trying to formulate her response as you’re still talking.
I could go on and on, but truly, one of a kind woman and therapist.

Jo Ann has helped me realize some things I never knew about myself and get me the help I needed. She is an excellent listener, very kind, helpful, and practical.

I am grateful for having Jo Ann as my therapist. I was very nervous when I signed up to Betterhelp but Jo Ann put any feeling of uncertainty to rest during the first few minutes of our first session. I'm now excited to move forward with healing. Thank you Jo Ann!

Jo Ann has been extremely helpful for me. Hee understanding, perspective, and experience has been so amazing. I have had the most progress and positive experience during our sessions. I love her advice and appreciate her kindness. I highly recommend her to anyone struggling with BPD and CPTSD (or those suspecting CPTSD).
