Joanne is a very special therapist, and I am so deeply grateful for the time I have worked with her. She is calm, patient, caring, attentive, smart, gentle, funny, and completely without judgment. From the very first session, I felt totally at ease and comfortable sharing with her. She is deeply knowledgeable about EMDR and helped me understand why we were using particular techniques and how they were working. I was really blown away by the effectiveness of her approach. After a year of therapy, I now notice tremendous improvement in living with past trauma and a greater ability to turn self-awareness into action and change. I sincerely and strongly recommend working with Joanne.
