Bio

With a Masters in Clinical Depth Psychology, and an expertise in Mental Health, Human Behavior & Personal Development, Joanna has been working with Art and Education and Human Development as a Teacher, Therapist and Life Coach; through schools and institutions for almost 30 years !


Specializing in Jungian-based Introspective and Experiential Process work, she focuses on creating Wholeness and Balance through Mind/Body/Soul connections and use of Expressive & Healing Arts.


Being Childhood Cancer Survivor has been a major life influence, motivating her both personally and professionally. Coming from an Education and Counseling background and working as a Behavioral Therapist and MFT; she has had the opportunity to work with individuals of all ages and developmental abilities/disabilities.


An innovator in her time, operating without a net per say, before fields such as Art therapy and practicing Mindfulness or Expressive Arts were mainstreamed as considerable options in the Mental Health / Wellness Industry. It was through her Master’s research that she found the key, to unlocking the great challenge set before her.  This discovery was the missing piece she needed to launch her own program; in order to share her experience and help others.

After proving the benefits of her methods and techniques; by engaging the Imagination, even a seemingly simple experience can create life changing results.


Joanna has been an artist her whole life, enjoying the element of Expressive Arts through different mediums that speak to her in through the process of creation…. She is energetic, creative, and encourages the use of Introspection and Self-expression. She engages genuinely, provides unbiased constructive support within opportunities and challenges, that benefit  experience and growth in an open and supportive environment.


She is patient, understanding, and is able to assess & adapt her skills to meet the needs of all individuals. With her specialty in Education, Psychology and Clinical Training; her Coaching & Classes are both motivational and constructive, with a creative element as well, invoking exploration and discovery by providing both freedom and support through powerful learning opportunities and the process of Creating Life Experience.
