I am happy with her help

I have never had a person in my life support and empathize with me the way Joni does. I never feel judged, and she always helps me to feel a little less alone. She offers several options to help me cope long term, while also giving emotional support immediately.

Joni makes the most of our time by getting to the center of the issues quickly, but doesn't gloss over important details. She has a very down-to-earth, first-things-first approach. She listens attentively and emphatically. I was hesitant to start therapy after years of avoiding it, but Joni is easy to open up to, and her office (so to speak) is a judgement free zone. I highly recommend Joni to anyone that needs a reliable, compassionate, and down-to-earth therapist.

Joni is a caring, professional therapist who has helped me many times over the last year. I feel more empowered to advocate for myself, and to receive the support I need from loved ones and in my marriage.

Joni is very helpful. She remembers exactly who she is talking to, the details you provide, and is able to give critical feedback in an extremely personable manner. I never once felt uncomfortable and I am always able to say what is on my mind with plenty of time. She was able to help isolate issues and point out key details in our talks, even through my excessive rambling. She is definitely helping me grow as an individual and is prioritizing what needs to be worked on very well and I am so appreciative of her.

Joni has been incredibly helpful with providing me an outlet to talk about my issues. Most importantly, she doesn't mind that I'm a bit long-winded and tend to write her novels deep-diving into those issues. ^_^

Joni is super understanding and sympathetic. She’s a super sweet lady and I highly appreciate her knowledge and expertise. I would definitely recommend anyone seeking help to give Jodi a chance because at the end of the day, it’ll be worth it.

I have had 1 phone session with Joni and she was very involved and helped me come up with different coping strategies and ways to manage my stress and worry. She is very prompt with her written replies as well!

I just started my counseling with Joni about three weeks ago. I feel very comfortable with her and feel she really cares. She’s a good listener and advisor. I appreciate that she makes me feel that she understands. I appreciate her honesty and straight forwardness. Thank you!

She responds very quickly and also she follows up without me writing just to check up on me. She is very good.

She responds several times a day which is nice when I'm feeling down. It's rarely more than 2 hrs before she gets back to me depending on the time of day. I feel heard and respected.

Work with me!
