Are you an adult who is experiencing anxiety, feeling stress in dealing with your day-to-day life?  Are you having difficulty coping with everyday stressors – managing work/life balance, relationship conflicts, or self-esteem issues?  

Are you struggling to adjust to changes in your life – graduating school and entering the workforce, making a big move or buying a home, getting married or divorced, becoming a parent or grandparent, changing careers or retiring, a significant loss (a job, breakup, death, role in your life), serious illness/disability (yourself or a loved one)?

If so, please know that you’re not alone! It’s common to feel overwhelmed, scared, or stressed from these changes.  

If you feel you could benefit from some support, I encourage you to reach out to me. My exclusive online private practice can provide you with a comfortable environment to process your feelings and cope with stressors in order to feel better about yourself and your life.

  • You really want someone to talk with about how to make your life more calm, peaceful, and easy.
  • You wish something would shift and change, and you know that living in a different way will be worth it.

“A Blessing: I find myself navigating very complex issues in my life. A friend prompted me to seek counseling and not to go it alone as I have always done. Working with Joanna has been very helpful. Joanna is attentive and empathetic. I look forward to our sessions and the work we are doing is helping to unravel the complexities I am facing. I could run out of superlatives describing my experience.”
-Therapy Client

“Thank you to my therapist, Joanna. We have spent four months navigating my troubled, albeit, interesting waters. It has always been hard for me to ask for help. Having a kind empathetic soul to talk to and exchange thoughts with is enormously helpful. Thank you seems inadequate.”
