Joann Watkins

I have over 20 years of experience as a licensed marriage and family therapist. I am passionate about my work and it is a great honor to work with clients and their families. I have worn many hats over the years, I was a clinical director for a non-profit for 15 years, worked in school based systems, provided coaching and professional development for businesses and school staff, supervised interns, and worked in a private practice.
I believe that we all should have the opportunity to access mental health services and it is my hope that one day it will be the norm for us to get regular physical/mental health checkups. The mind and body are one and we should honor that connection.

Over the years many ask the question, "what is the most important skill you need to develop in order to be a successful therapist." For me that skill is the ability to listen intentionally, to whole heartedly and without judgement listen and hear what my client is saying not just with their words but with their bodies as well.

I have a great deal of experience working with trauma, crisis management, family systems, depression, anxiety, coaching and professional development.
I offer individual, couples, family, and group therapy, professional development and coaching services.

I am looking forward to connecting with you and listening!
