They also have advanced training in the area of traumatic growth, mindfulness, and infant mental health.

Jo is trained in an eclectic blend of therapies, including trauma-conscious yoga, mindfulness meditation, Reiki, inner child work, heart math, and cognitive behavioral therapy, which all contribute to mind + body + spirit healing. In session, Jo focuses on the somatic experience in the present moment, guiding clients to connect with their authentic selves and release what is no longer serving them in achieving their goals. This approach supports clients to connect with their internal experience, gain confidence in their ability to express and regulate emotions, set boundaries, increase self-awareness, be in reciprocal loving relationships, and live authentically from their soul.
