Joanne M Wholey, MA, LPC, NCC, CIFST, Licensed Professional Counselor in Bloomfield
Thank you for viewing my profile. The task of finding a therapist can be difficult and a bit overwhelming. Simply put, I will provide a safe place to explore your thoughts and feelings. You will be treated with dignity and respect, and our therapeutic relationship will be professional and ethical. I have over 15 years of experience treating individuals who suffer from depression, anxiety, grief and loss including the loss of a beloved pet, for which I have specialized training in. As a cancer survivor, I am very familiar with the journey toward healing as well as all the associated highs and lows of treatment.
I am a Certified Internal Family Systems Therapist. The IFS model was developed by Richard Schwartz, PhD. For more info, visit IFS is the model of therapy I use to help individuals explore aspects of themselves that continue to get stuck in unhealthy behavior patterns, leading to understanding, transformation, and clarity.
I am certified in Equine Facilitated Learning and Psychotherapy through EPONAQUEST Worldwide. This is an experiential form of therapy that involves partnering with horses. No riding involved. No previous experience with horses is necessary. Individualized programs can be created to address issues that prevent you from living your best life.
