Joanna Florano, LPC, LCAS, NCC

Joanna believes whether it is a stressful life event, a conflict in a relationship, or an addiction to a mind-altering substance or other behavior, we all experience times when it feels like an external situation is taking control over our lives.

Joanna is passionate about working collaboratively with clients to examine the impact these situations have had on their lives and regain control by learning new and positive strategies for coping with emotional and physical pain. Joanna believes that while we are unable to change the past, together we can find meaning in the present and construct a more fulfilling future.  ​
