Hi, my name is JoAnne, and I have been a licensed counselor in the state of Idaho since 2001. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Communicative Disorders from Long Beach State University, and a Masters Degree in Education from Northwest Nazarene University. Along with my work in community mental health, I have also counseled in churches and several schools, from the elementary to the college level.
I have training and experience in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Christian Counseling, and EMDR. Areas of focus include stress, grief and loss, ADD/ADHD, adjusting to
changes and life altering circumstances, divorce, anxiety and depression.
My counseling approach is practical and encouraging. While our circumstances can be
daunting, most often is it our beliefs about our problems that create the most emotional distress.
We will work together to identify your goals and work toward a more peaceful, satisfying life. I
am happy to work with individuals who view their problems through a spiritual lens and are
seeking faith-based counseling.
I currently work with women, adolescents and children (ages 8-12). Most insurances are accepted, including
Medicaid, and a variety of EAP’s. Please check with your insurance for confirmation. For more
information or to schedule an appointment, please call me at 208-917-3774.
