About My Clients

Are you a caring, responsible person who craves thriving relationships, but has no clue how to make that happen? Your relationships leave you feeling depleted, frustrated, burned out, or confused. Things seem okay on the outside, but you might feel bad on the inside. If you feel like or have been told that you're "too emotional" or "irrational," here's the good news: emotions are INHERENTLY rational. I can help you translate your emotions so that you can work WITH them to deepen connections.

My Background and Approach

I work with people who really crave healthy, lasting relationships but feel stuck, confused, or discouraged. No matter how hard they try to connect with their loved ones, they end up with even more hurt and disconnection than before. I believe that the best way to heal FROM relationship pain is THROUGH relationships. Although self-help books are indeed helpful, nothing beats learning and growing in the presence of another safe human being so that you're not healing and growing alone. With a tool called the Enneagram, we learn the ways your personality influences how you live and love. We explore what your patterns of thinking, feeling, doing, and relating are, patterns that sometimes help and sometimes hurt. When we come across a particular stuck point, Brainspotting can help you soothe your body's reactions.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

You are the driver in the driver's seat. You have your hands on the steering wheel, and your feet on the gas pedal and brakes. You pick the destination, and at what pace you'd like to go. As your therapist, I am a passenger sitting beside you, pointing out some options on how you can get to where you'd like to go. I give you a head's up on what to expect along the way, point out what to be on the lookout for, and redirect you if we miss an exit. Ultimately, I value having you have the most control over your own journey. Instead of me imposing my goals or opinions onto you, you get to determine how to live out your life according to your own values and priorities. May I accompany you on this journey? Looking forward to getting to know you! Warmly, Joanne
