JoAnn helps me to find my inner voice and stand up for myself and come to my own conclusions about my problems by acting as a sounding board and offering advice with a real world application. I can reach out to her day or night when I’m struggling and she responds promptly. She has provided me with many worksheets and exercises to help combat anxiety and establish boundaries in my life so I am no longer taken advantage of. I don’t know where I’d be without 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!
