Hello! Welcome! My name is JoAnna Knopf. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Indiana and Florida. My clinical background has been quite diverse. I began my career in addictions. I worked with clients in an outpatient setting as well as a faith-based transitional living facility. I also worked in home-based therapy, where I worked with families experiencing a wide variety of difficulties including trauma, depression, anxiety, domestic violence, anger management, family conflict, marriage and family therapy, parenting issues, grief and loss, and sexual abuse.
I am certified in EMDR therapy (trauma therapy) and I am also an EMDR consultant. I am very passionate about walking people through the process of healing from trauma. I have extensive training in helping those with PTSD and Dissociative Identity Disorder. I also have training in sandtray/play therapy (with children), Motivational Interviewing, CISM, and CBT. I also have history of working with veterans.
As a Christian Counselor, my goal is to let Holy Spirit lead, as we embark on a journey of discovering your design and purpose and grow more close to Jesus. I believe the Bible says we are Spirit, Soul and Body. When healing and going through difficulties in life, we have to look at it from a holistic approach and let God lead that process.
I look forward to being with you on that journey! I enjoy watching people grow, learn, love themselves again, and become the person they were created to be as they heal. Therapy is hard work, but we will find joy in the journey.
