Psychotherapy & Counseling
- Are you tired of suffering and ready to get help?
- Would you like to feel better permanently even though other professionals have told you it is not possible?
- Would like you to work with a therapist with over 25 years experience?
In my psychotherapy practice, my passion is helping you succeed and feel better often without medication. If you have severe trauma, PTSD, OCD, anxiety, depression, trichotillomania, fear of public speaking, test anxiety, panic disorder, business anxiety or sports anxiety we can work together to provide you with the opportunity to release your fears. I am certified in cognitive behavior therapy, exposure and response prevention and evidenced based Emotional Freedom Techniques, aka, tapping.
In 1996 Joan discovered Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), an evidenced based self-help technique based on the newly emerging field of energy psychology. The theory of energy psychology methods such as EFT is that the flow and balance of the body’s electromagnetic and more subtle energies are important for physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional health, and for fostering well-being.
In psychotherapy sessions Joan works to get to the origins of your distress through counseling and then can offer energy techniques designed to help in alleviating the distress caused by negative thoughts and emotions. Joan is certified in energy psychology methods, including EFT, by the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology and EFT International.
I am the only licensed therapist in Pennsylvania certified in EFT by the 2 most highly respected EFT organizations in the world. It is my honor and privilege to help you get unstuck and release your fears and self sabotaging beliefs.

There are a lot of things that create stress, anxiety and take away from our quality of life. …..
Trichotillomania (pronounced trik-o-till-o-MAY-nee-uh), also known as “hair-pulling disorder,” is a mental disorder classified under Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders. It is characterised by the recurrent, irresistible urges to pull hair from the scalp, eyebrows, eyelids, and other areas of the body. It continues untreated despite repeated attempts to stop or decrease hair pulling.
