About me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who has a belief system that you can do it. I believe in different therapies for different clients. My goal as a therapist is to listen to you, discover what the issues are and together create a treatment plan. You talk to me about what are those issues that you would like to work on. Depression, stress, low self-esteem, and etc. Together we set goals and together we decide on objectives in order to achieve those goals.
I love working with clients who are in need of skills to improve their lives. These same skills that I will share with you can be used through-out your lifespan.
I have experience working with military members and their families, families in crisis, family therapy, addiction therapy, anxiety, and depression.

My experience with Joan was lovely. She listened carefully and helped me deconstruct and address my issues in systematic manner, which is what I needed. Somebody to help me break down my chaotic though pattern.
