About me

I am an individual counselor licensed in Vermont and Texas with over 14 years of experience as a psychotherapist. I have worked with adult clients with a wide range of concerns including sad thoughts that stimulate a general feeling of defeat and hopelessness; painful and fearful patterns of worried thoughts and feelings; overwhelming feelings of guilt and shame; diminished self-esteem, stress, and often a lack of emotional support. For these experiences and issues, I will use therapies to creatively promote positive change in your life.

In counseling I emphasize trust, respect, and compassion in a safe and secure environment where hope meets healing. My goal is to help you gain insight and understanding into your particular situation and issues, working together with you to ignite positive growth.

I will meet you where you are and match my approach to your needs. My style is warm, direct, non-threatening, and empowering, which encourages you to explore how you can change thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that in the past have caused difficulties in your life.

I would like to invite you to take the next brave step; I am excited to work with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Joan Peery. 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 a great listener and has brought forth new ideas and perspectives for me to look at. She is quick to answer messages and tries to find appointment times that fit in my schedule.
