About me

I am licensed in Colorado with 16 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, lgbtq+ related issues, relationship issues, & trauma and abuse. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion and I work with a strengths-based perspective. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I know how difficult it is to reach out for help, and how important the fit is. I am here to support & empower you to make the changes and reach the goals that you choose.

I have worked with substance abuse issues for many years in addition to working with couples and families. I see a range of clients from adolescents (>13) to adults. I enjoy helping people make changes in their lives and improve their relationships with others.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Joan Palan. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Joan is very good at listening and offering guidance when applicable. She has helped me see patterns and trends that are unhealthy and helped me in learning how to observe and redirect some behavior and negative thoughts.
