About Me

I have worked in many different settings with several different populations. I have worked with offenders through DFS and prison/parole operations, substance abuse facilities, mental health, facilities, and co-occurring facilities addressing. I have been through some tough life changes and things have not always gone the way that I have hoped. These experiences have allowed me to grow as a person and a counselor because it has given me some insight to the emotions that clients face on a daily basis, It has allowed me to show more empathy for the client and their situation without them feeling that they are being judged.

Written by A.S. on Jul 31, 2020 after counseling with Joel for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Joel is awesome. Always makes sure we hit all of my concerns during session and helps me to see all sides of things. I always see my end goals on my own but he makes it easier to get from point A to B.
