Therapist and Career Counselor in Houston
Specializing in Career and Life Transitions
Career Counseling:
Joan has many years of experience in career counseling, career change coaching, and academic advising—supporting experienced professionals, undergraduate and graduate students in choosing or changing careers that express who they are and in selecting appropriate educational and training programs that will move them toward their career goal. As a manager in the computer industry, she hired and trained multiple employees. As a result, she has a clear picture of the employment process from an employer’s perspective. She has also been through a lay-off and understands the financial and emotional impact a lay-off can have, as well as the opportunity it provides for a person to find a career in which one can thrive. Joan is a “poster child” for positive career change.

Personal Counseling:
Joan works with clients facing a variety of challenges, from anxiety and depression to self-esteem and assertiveness skills. As a life-long caregiver, Joan has a unique ability to empathize with and support caregivers in carving out a life for themselves in the face of challenging demands. Having lost her husband, a life-long friend and a sister to cancer in barely two years, she has a special gift for developing resilience in the face of family illness and loss.
