About My Clients

Are you a conscientious, caring person who craves thriving relationships, but have 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

My primary client population are 20- and 30-something individuals and couples 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. As a Marriage & Family Therapist, 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 another human being. Your healing process matters and is worth witnessing. I focus on patterns in major relationships (family, significant others, and children) to see where growth can best happen to create the kind of relationships you so deeply want. Though this process may involve facing very uncomfortable parts of your life, this may be the key to unlocking your potential to love and be loved in the way you deserve.

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 values and priorities. May I accompany you on this journey? Looking forward to getting to know you! Warmly, Joanne
