- In process of completing Registered Play Therapy Certification
- Trained in “children in the middle” co-parenting curriculum
As a previous preschool teacher of 15 years and a mother of two, I am passionate about working with children through play as well as helping families better improve connection and promote healthier dynamics and relationships.
Adolescents is a difficult time. It is a time of self discovery and learning how to navigate relationships. I have experience working with teens struggling with self harm, confidence and friendships. I am passionate about providing a safe place for teens to explore who they are and how to feel confident in their own skin.
Joanna believes a strong and healthy family dynamic is crucial to supporting children and teens. She enjoys working with parents on creating unity in parenting, identifying parenting roles and how to more effectively communicate within the family.
She is also trained in the “children in the middle’ co-parenting curriculum and enjoys working with parents whose goal is to improve the co-parenting relationship. She understands the grief and barriers associated with co-parenting and works with both parents on how to create consistency and structure to best support the child.
