About Me

Hello and welcome to betterhelp!

I am a licensed mental health counselor in New York state with 5 years of experience as an inpatient behavioral health counselor and emergency room crisis counselor. I've also worked with teens in a residential treatment facility focusing on trauma experiences. Additionally, I have over 30 years of experience working as a Behavior Specialist and am a Licensed Behavior Analyst in New York State. I have worked with people with a variety of concerns such as depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, ADHD, trauma-related concerns, and anger challenges.

My counseling approach is predominately a cognitive-behavioral one. I believe in developing a good professional relationship based on mutual trust, respect, honesty, and compassion. Treatment will be based on your individual needs and with your input as I believe this is a critical aspect of counseling.

Taking this first step to seek change is a courageous one! I am here to support you on your journey of discovery.

I look forward to working with you!
Joanne

Joanne is a great listener. She guided me to see things from another angle. The sessions I had with her were very useful. I'm very grateful to be connected with her.

Written by K.A. on May 31, 2021 after counseling with Joanne for 6 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Joanne has completely changed my life. After the loss of my sister, I promptly began scheduling sessions with her to cope with the grief I was feeling. Joanne helped me find joy in little things, appreciate the beauty of every day, and always find time to do things for myself. Without her, helping me through this difficult time, I honestly dont know how I would have done it. I truly look forward to my weekly sessions with her and am so thankful for her in my life.

Joanne has always made me feel at ease, and completely safe to be open and sharing. I look forward to our sessions every week!

I worked with Joanne for a period of about 2 months. She was such a great counselor and overall presence in my life. She has a very warm and calming demeanor, and a relatable personality. Whoever is lucky enough to match with her will have an overwhelmingly positive experience

I have had 4 sessions with Joanne and have felt extremely comfortable and open to expressing myself. I genuinely feel listened to and that has helped me share more freely and more often. Very appreciative to have her guidance.

Written by C.A. on Jan 03, 2021 after counseling with Joanne for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, grief, bipolar disorder, and compassion fatigue

Joanne far exceeded my expectations for therapy. I was very hesitant to try online counseling and Joanne made this so easy, productive, and beneficial. She was everything I needed to help me work through my issues and make a plan for a successful future. I look forward to our sessions and am so grateful I chose her as my therapist. We all need a Joanne in our lives!

I am so grateful to Joanne. She was immediately warm, attentive and caring. She allowed me to guide our sessions based on what I needed and was feeling. She affirmed me and pushed me to new levels of insight. Most importantly: I felt seen and I felt heard.

Joanne and I already have established a rapport during my first month of sessions. She made me feel comfortable and supported in our very first meeting and has continued to supply me with worksheets and insight ever since. Highly recommend!
