About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) located in the state of Florida. I have been working as a mental health therapist with children, adolescents, and families in both Canada and US since 1992. I have worked with clients on a wide range of issues including relationship issues, parenting issues, anxiety, depression, ADHD, conflict resolution, and major life changes to name a few. I use Cognitive Behavioral, Solution Focused, and Systems theory techniques in my work as a counselor. I am a licensed Youth Mental Health First Aid trainer and a trainer in Restorative Practice. I am warm, compassionate, and client centered in my approach and I am led by your needs utilizing therapeutic techniques to help you to create positive change in your life. On a personal note, I am a woman of color, a mother to two boys, a dog owner, and a passionate ally to the LGBTQ+ communities.

You are reading this right now because you have made an important decision to reach out for help. I commend you on your courage. Life can be challenging, complicated, and overwhelming. We all need help finding our way to the best journey in our lives. I would be honored to walk a part of your journey with you. You have already done some important personal work in deciding to see a counselor to create positive change. I will work with you on prioritizing the changes that you would like to create and we will work toward attaining sustainable goals that you can accomplish. Our sessions together will be work, but you will leave them feeling lighter and accomplished toward positive changes in your life.

I look forward to working with you and helping you to live your best life.
Warm Regards,
Joanne

In my two sessions with Joanne, I already feel heard and validated and on the road to recovery.

Written by R.E. on Nov 03, 2021 after therapy with Joanne for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety

I am so happy that I chose Joanne as a therapist. She is always on time and makes the session very productive. She is genuine and I feel we have a connection that allows me to be open with how I feel and this has helped me tremendously. I feel we have made some great progress this week, but I must continue to work on myself with her help!

As my first experience with therapy and a therapist, I believe its been the best one, Joanne has helped me tremendously and Ive only been in therapy for a couple of months

In the 6 weeks that I’ve been receiving counseling with Joanne I’ve overcome some huge obstacles and worked through some deep seated personal and relationship issues. Joanne has been supportive, kind, thoughtful and has provided me with techniques, homework, insight and feedback that suited my personal experience. She’s warm, personable and easy to talk to. Highly highly recommend her as a counseler

Work with me!
