I was in an emergency state of mind when I began my relationship with Jo Ann. She has been the support I needed, and six months later I feel that my life is back on track, and my emotional state is much more stable.

I have only had 3 sessions with Jo Ann, and within those 3 sessions I have found her to be very helpful. She's a great listener and made me feel at ease to speak about my issues. She's compassionate and attentive and asks insightful questions. Thanks Jo Ann!

Good listener but discipline is at low, she schedules and canceled many times and once wanted us to have a session while she was driving - i find that a bit unprofessional maybe its just me. Maybe the focus is more on quantity than on quality of the season. Appreciate her time nevertheless and thank you!

Written by J.I. on Oct 25, 2021 after therapy with Jo Ann for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Jo Ann is awesome! She's smart, friendly, and an excellent communicator and listener, and is on time, too. I came in with specific things (boundaries) to tackle and as she helped me figure out my path, she asked great questions to get to know me better along the way, and offered helpful phrases from setting & enforcing boundaries in her own life. Highly recommended for any professional seeking to grow in their work and personal lives :)

Jo Ann is incredible! She genuinely listens, makes you feel heard, speaks from the truth and gives practical advice on how to improve. She has wonderful way of truly understanding how you are and what you intend to communicate without even having to explain too much. I feel safe speaking to her and never feel judged.
