What clients are

saying

"Joni's counseling style pisses me off - it helps me realize things about myself I've been neglecting to address, which helps me become a better person. She's absolutely great!"

FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS

When I was younger, I struggled deeply with emotion.  I felt so alone.  My life changed in wonderful ways as I connected with people who were willing to come alongside me, to journey with me and invest in me as I learned to navigate this adventure called life. 

 

Simultaneously, I discovered hurting people gravitated to me and I had a gift for helping them to feel they were not alone.  Personal pain coincided with passion, and I embarked on my journey to becoming a therapist.  If I can keep one person from having to struggle alone by walking along with them, then I have served my purpose.  

I believe strongly that the phrase "For such a time as this" was meant for my life.  Everywhere I go and everything I do, I seem uniquely prepared for the experience.  I believe everyone who walks into my office does so for a reason, even if it's just for one session.  I'm glad you're here. 

 

This is OUR journey - thank you for allowing me to share it with you.
