Social Worker, Psychotherapist

Hi, I'm Joanna. We all face distressing situations and you do not have to navigate hardship on your own. I focus on utilizing my professional expertise to help clients feel supported as they face challenges and strive to make desired changes. I work with clients to help develop a therapeutic plan that optimizes mental health well-being and activates personal strengths. I typically work with individuals who have or are experiencing stress, grief and loss, low-esteem, anxiety, depression, trauma, and challenges with new life transitions. My professional approach is grounded in an anti-oppressive, non-judgemental, and compassionate framework. I encourage my clients to be kind to themselves when experiencing distressing thoughts and emotions. I am trained in different evidenced-based models of therapy and collaborate with clients to find what approach aligns best with their needs and goals.

 

To replenish, I like to connect with family, friends, and my dogs. I also enjoy being outdoors where I enjoy hiking and skiing.

 

Sometimes when beginning therapy, it’s hard to know where to start. I’m happy to work alongside you wherever you’re at on your journey to wellness. It’s important that you feel your therapist is the appropriate professional to support you and I can consult with you first to answer any questions you may have.
