Hi, I'm Joanna
I am a caring and empathetic listener and I value getting to know each of my individual clients. I love to connect with clients through their interests, whether that’s video games, art, music, or something else entirely! I understand that psychology is not a ‘one size fits all’ model, and I will work hard to adapt to your individual unique circumstances and needs.
I value differences which is why I use a neurodiversity affirming approach with clients, and I believe that we should celebrate each other’s differences and strengths.
Joanna's ready to help you improve your mental health.
