MORE ABOUT ME
Hi! I'm Joanna!
I am a licensed therapist, an intersectional feminist, an empath, an advocate of vulnerability, a feeler, and a human above all. I hold space for womxn to process, explore, feel, grow, and reclaim their sense of worth.
I grew up struggling with the comparison trap, not feeling good enough, and masking my fears with perfectionism. Through my own journey towards self-compassion, I learned that it is not life itself, but our stories, narratives, and beliefs that hinder and prevent us from growth and change. We all deserve to be seen and heard. We all struggle. And none of us are immune to feelings of loss, depression, anxiety, stagnancy, grief, and fear.
I'm here to normalize mental wellness and to end stigma because allowing ourselves to feel and be imperfectly human can help guide us through life's ups and downs with less shame, and more authenticity.
education + fun facts
I hold a Bachelor's in Psychology from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a Master's Degree in Clinical Social Work from New York University.
I've moved around A LOT.
My life has taken me from Mexico City, where I was born, to New Delhi, India ∙ Washington, DC ∙ Chapel Hill, NC ∙ New York City, and am now based in the Rocky Mountains and call Bozeman, Montana home.
WORK WITH ME
I hold a license to practice psychotherapy in Montana, Maryland, and DC. I see clients out of my private practice based in Bozeman, Montana, and offer online therapy for clients in DC and Maryland. Reach out to see if I may be a good fit and have openings!
For all non-client inquiries or collaborations, please contact me
WHAT IF I LIVE
Great question! Due to state board regulations, I can only work with clients in the states that I'm licensed in. So if you're *not* in DC, MD, or MT, I am happy to help find you referrals. You can also sign up for my newsletter, read articles I've been featured in, or browse my blog for more resources.
