The importance of developing a strong rapport through carrying genuine compassion and empathy helps the counselling experience and increases success in healing.
Joanne works frequently with trauma survivors and the effects of childhood abuse.  Her skills include working with issues such as depression, self-esteem and general well-being. She has a special interest in working with obsessive-compulsive disorder and general anxiety. Relationship issues, communication and conflict resolution are generally improved through the counselling that Joanne provides. She offers supportive counselling to make life's challenges more bearable. Her practice is designed to reach people in the Clarence-Rockland area with daytime and evening hours and extended health coverage available.
Joanne has a Master's Degree in Individual Counselling and has continued her studies through Gottmann model and EFT model for working with couples. She was involved with marriage preparation workshops for years and presented on issues such as Effective Communication, Conflict Resolution and Sex and Intimacy.
