Hi, I’m so glad you’re here. My work here in this world isn’t to convince you that your life will always be easy, but that you have the capacity to live through the hardest things and not only survive, but thrive.
While my life hasn’t been extraordinary, it's been deeply colored by grief. As is common with most women I know, I had a tumultuous + hurtful relationship with my mother, with my body… with the world in general. I have lost both of my parents, suddenly. A handful of friends, tragically. My health to misdiagnoses and chronic disease. And yet, here I stand: in love, with joy, freedom and peace oozing from my very being.
I am in the business of uncovering the resilience you forgot you had, disconnecting you from identities and beliefs that were never yours to keep, and reconnecting you to the language of your truest self so that you can reclaim your life. If it’s possible for me, it’s possible for you.
I also wanted a “kick in the pants” to take better care of myself as I expand and grow. I loved how real and down-to-earth Jo is during sessions. She's highly intuitive and calm. I appreciated her energy level and I always felt supported with her. I recognized that I have all I need to be successful and abundant, and that I must prioritize my self-care before supporting others. It’s not selfish, but rather selfless to fill my own cup with abundance. I can trust myself and my intuition always and that I’m supported at all times. Sessions are powerful. Don’t sign up unless you’re ready to grow and get to know yourself on a much deeper level !
I feel like our work together helped me to understand myself in different ways so that now I am more empowered to move forward to my specific goals. She asks the best questions! Jo is able to cut to the truth in someones story, in a very kind and gentle way. That they will be asked to see themselves truthfully and it can be hard but it’s worth it. I feel confident and focused.
After our first 45 minute session, I was totally floating all of Tuesday evening after we spoke – HUGE moving of energy, couldn’t have held it in if I had tried, talking my partner’s ear off about what I was working on and what I needed felt so liberating. The last couple of days have been really interesting – definitely a bit more grounded and quiet within myself letting the stuff we went through really sink in, and man – the whole thing about feminine power/wearing multiple roles has really opened up some deep truths with me that I had been working on for a while. So so so good.
I think there is a fear that people have when they are seeking out help/guidance that people will be judging where they are/who they are and what they want help with. I never had that sense with Jo. Working with her is like having an encouraging and challenging friend – someone who cares about your life and knows about what you’re facing, but also someone who is making time and is determined to guide and be with you in your growth. It’s like having someone in your corner, but who is helping you move in a new direction.
A period that required me to take risks and move out of my comfort zone. Joanne was also there to celebrate in my accomplishments and victories over fear and doubt and whatever other bogey men were supposedly hiding around the corner…and there were a lot of corners! Our “check-in” sessions midweek were a great help to keep me focused in between session and to remind me of the very real possibilities that the past is NOT an indicator of the future, that new and different opportunities and realities await me.
