"Joanne is able to hold a safe space for people to explore their emotions and learn to express themselves in a variety of ways. She allows people to feel comfortable in what can be an uncomfortable space; and is mindful of ensuring the right pace, adapting to what is needed in a session, and is very aware of the needs of each individual. Joanne is able to help people connect with what is important and facilitate a deep understanding of oneself."

"I had 6 sessions with Joanne and although I was initially apprehensive about the process, the insights and a-ha moments were profound and welcome. What was I apprehensive about? I’m no artist, I’m more the stick figure and “what the hell is that” person so I was unsure about how I would gain anything through arts therapy. The process Joanne led me through was easeful ….I’d like to say painless, but the revelations and healing was not pain-free - but I know I can’t heal without feeling and acknowledging the pain.
I highly recommend Joanne - if you are on the fence and apprehensive like I was, know that the process will help unblock any areas of life you are struggling with."
