Professional statement

Joanna is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with 23 years of professional experience who is clinically trained in New York. For over two decades, she has been teaching people about how their minds and bodies respond to stress and trauma. Joanna helps her clients with various challenges, such as stress and anxiety, coping with addictions, coping with grief and loss, and parenting issues.

Joanna's clients tend to seek her help when they feel stuck and overwhelmed, and their sense of identity and self-confidence has been challenged. They appreciate having someone who "gets it" without being biased, who can help them see themselves more clearly, and who is compassionate yet direct.

Joanna aims to collaborate with her clients. She enjoys making the tools that are available to her as a clinician practical and accessible to her clients. She also recognizes that every client shows bravery just by showing up to therapy each week.
