Joanne is a very empathetic and talented therapist. She checks in with me before every session to see how my mental state is before going into any conversation topics she previously had in mind. Our sessions are very flexible and she regularly spends the session guiding me through a pressing concern so that I can feel free of it for the rest of the week. I highly recommend her to anyone who has struggled with depressive symptoms. She has gotten me through some really dark times and I appreciate her so much.
