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 8 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 is so amazing and so helpful!
I have been working with Joanne for just a few weeks and I feel like she totally understands me already. She does not push me which has happened in the past with different therapists which turned me off to therapy altogether. I really like Joanne’s approach. She asks questions, offers great insight and I really dig when she sends articles and worksheets. I have never experienced that before. It really helps when working on certain situations. I have been struggling with addiction issues for a while. Joanne’s knowledge in this area is so helpful because I have a lot of questions and need help understanding what I need to do to stay sober.
Joanne has been amazing! She asks the right questions and is very quick to offer resources and worksheets that are helpful. She is a great listener and responds promptly.
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.
