About My Clients
We continually seek to provide a safe and affirming experience for all marginalized persons, particularly those who trans, nonbinary, or queer, and/or BIPOC. The three of us are passionate about providing services for people who might not otherwise feel comfortable seeking therapy or who might not otherwise have access to it.
My Background and Approach
We provide individual therapy for a variety of presenting issues, including identity exploration, transitioning, societal stigma and marginalization, interpersonal issues, anxiety, depression, trauma, autism, stress, and whatever else clients bring to the table. Joanna is excited to supervise Sam Hollis-White and Millicent Cahoon in the 2022/2023 academic year and to be able to provide services to even more people with their help. We will offer two therapy groups from January 12-April 27, 2023, each meeting 90 minutes weekly for 16 weeks. The Gender Affirmative Therapy Group for trans and nonbinary adults (Thursdays 6-7:30 p.m.) will be co-led by Millicent and Joanna and will meet in person. The Unapologetic Therapy Group for LGBTQ+ adults (Thursdays 2:00-3:30 p.m., Aug 25-Dec 8) will be co-led by Sam and Joanna and will meet online. Please contact us for an intake session prior to joining a group. Both groups are $40 per session or insurance.
