I absolutely love her. I love how understanding she was. I love that she listened but wouldn't let me dwell on problems and suggested techniques that I use to this day.

She is friendly, personable, and gets to the root of things. I would definitely recommend her.

JoAnn is like the Aunty I wish I had. Even though this is a job, she is very caring and attentive. She listens, understands and tells me the truth no matter how difficult it is to hear. I feel heard, important and valued. Thank you so very much. I most especially appreciate the random voice notes that I really needed at that specific time. Thanks so much!

She encouraged me to pray 3 times a day for my stepdaughter and I have been trying to do that. Having that reminder is so essential and makes me feel closer to my stepdaughter.
