Individuals, Couples, & Families
If you've lost someone to suicide, I'm available by phone or on Zoom no matter where you are. Contact me.
Do you struggle with all of those questions that begin, “Why?”
Do you replay those last hours or days over and over again, convinced there were signs you somehow missed?
Do you agonize over things you said or did (or didn’t say or do)?
Do you want someone who really gets it?
I work with individuals, couples, and families across the country and around the world. They want someone who’s not only knowledgeable, experienced, and highly skilled, but who also understands exactly what it's like to lose someone to suicide because I've lived through it myself.

“Thank you for talking through things with me when the pain of my loss was still so fresh."
“I think everything would have been different if I hadn’t heard about you."
"I give your info to everyone I meet who joins this unfortunate club, with zero hesitation and full confidence.”
“You're a national treasure.”
“Joanne gave me tools to cope and a safe space to discuss the reality of what it is like for my sons and me. She's amazing.”
“Not many people can do what Joanne does, and no one does it as well.
She is truly gifted.”
