Joanne enjoys working with adult men and women, and older adolescents with a focus on strength-based, person-centered, trauma focused treatment.
Joanne believes in working with clients at their own pace with patience, support, and encouragement starting with where they are in their world and their current awareness of who they are in that world when they enter therapy. She uses a variety of evidence-based therapeutic approaches as needed with each client. She believes that each individual has different needs that need to be addressed with approaches that work for them and often with a combination of different approaches such as DBT, CBT, Person Centered, ACT, TIR, Talk Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, etc. and referral to another therapist if needed. She has diverse experience with multiple cultures and is eager to learn from the client how they approach their world. Joanne believes that self-awareness is vital to each individual and that they need to be centered in who they are in their world to feel successful.
For self-renewal Joanne plays with her horses and adopted rescue cat, paints, draws, reads, meditates, and takes drives into the country or mountains along with maintaining contact with her family and friends.
