Hello and welcome! Thank you for taking a few moments of your time to read about me. Whether you choose to work with me or another therapist, I truly hope you find what you are looking for.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist in the state of North Carolina, a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Wisconsin, and a Registered Yoga Teacher. I have over 7 years of experience in the mental health field. I completed a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Northcentral University, a Master of Arts in Professional Counseling from Liberty University, and am currently pursuing a doctoral degree with Liberty University.
I sincerely believe that therapy should be a place of total acceptance and non-judgement where personal growth and change can be cultivated. My approach is eclectic and includes the following therapeutic approaches based on the needs of the individual: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy. I have a passion for treating trauma and am certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. As a yoga teacher, I have extra experience helping those trying to connect their mind-body-spirit! I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families dealing with a variety of issues to include depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, abuse, parenting, couples counseling, and military issues.
I commend you for taking the first step to begin counseling, and I know it can be intimidating! Recognizing you need extra support is already the step in the right direction and I am excited to help you become the best version of yourself!

Joanne has been great. She is always accessible and is always there to listen. She has lots of techniques that are helpful. I would recommend her to anyone.
Joanne has been amazing! She's helped me so much. I felt stuck in my recovery until talking with her but now I feel like I'm making progress again with her help. She pushes me exactly the way I need and does so in a way that I never feel unsafe or judged. Thank you, Joanne!
Joanne is my second time around on BetterHelp, she pushed me to keep the conversation going. I like her A LOT! She is incredibly interactive and gives you plenty of time to reply. she very neutral when we talk about myself and my reflections and I really like how she handles issues and builds questions and worksheets from it.
Joannne has been great. She has given me a lot of great advice and techniques and reaches out if she hasn’t heard from me for a day or so to check in.
