I am a Licenses Professional Counselor and a Certified Anger Management Specialist who has been in the Behavioral Health field for over 19 years. I chose to pursue a career in the Behavioral Health Field as a result of my need for professional counseling during a challenging period in my own life, at time when my Christian connections were ineffective in helping me deal with said challenges. I do not consider myself to be a "Christian Counselor, rather, I consider myself a Christian who happens to be a Counselor.
I believe in God the Father, and Jesus Christ as my personal Savior and try to live my life accordingly. This being the case, I welcome those clients who are not offended or afraid to offer a prayer before a session and who are comfortable with the use of Biblical principles being utilized in the clinical environment.
My counseling style is personable and interactive. I believe in people's abilities to bring about positive change in their lives if provided with the right support and guidance at crucial intervals in their lives.
Also experienced in:
Addictions , Relationship issues , Anger management , Self-esteem , Coping with life changes , Compassion fatigue , and Stress.
My approach to counseling includes the use of a variety of therapeutic modalities, based of the Client's needs and their capacity to engage in the treatment process. Some of these modalities includes, but is not limited to: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Client Centered Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy, all of which I have utilized in providing treatment for the following challenges: Depression, Anxiety, Grief, Adult onset ADHD, and Bi-Polar. etc.
I look forward to utilizing my educational skills and years of experience to help bring about positive change in the lives of individuals I am privileged to serve.
I look forward to the opportunity to serve you!.

I enjoyed doing therapy with Jo. She is such sweet lady and I connected well with her. Loved her straightforwardness and honesty as well. Definitely recommend her to anyone who needs a good counselor :)
JoAnn is an excellent listener. She asks good questions that make you think She gets to the heart of concerns and offers helpful next steps.
I'm enjoying my time talking to JoaAnn. I'm so glad I found someone to my liking for counseling. The best part is, JoAnn is understanding and relatable.
Jo Ann takes the time to listen and is empathetic
I like how she has such a wealth of life experience.
