I’m experienced as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) for twenty years and I’ve been able to assist children and teens as well as their families with the tools needed to manage individual child as well as family dysfunction, helping young people learn to balance and manage their anger and depression, anxiety, stress and lack of confidence and problems with school refusal. In addition, I have experience with assisting teens in building character and social skills. I’ve worked with young people in foster care and group home settings where bullying as well as anger and depression are often the focus of their problems. Teens often feel insecure and unpopular in their environment especially at school and there are tools to employ to help improve their situations. Entering therapy can open the door to positive and beneficial change that can lead to a more confident and resilient outlook on life
I look forward to working together.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Joan Holmes. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Teen Counseling might be different.
Joan is so helpful. She is not only easy to talk to but her advice works! I love how she connects with me first then talks with my child. It makes me feel a part of and in the loop with my child’s therapy goals. I also notice my child feels better after her session and overall mood has improved. We are looking forward to continuing working with Joan. Highly recommend her.
I highly recommend Joan. She’s very easy to talk to, is a good listener & gives great advice & suggestions.
Joan is very easy to open up to.
Ms. Holmes is pleasant to talk to and understands my pain points and what I’m sorting through. I did not realize how much I was carrying around as baggage from years of various heartbreaking experiences.
Joan has been very helpful and has been empowering me to make better decisions, i really am enjoying the support and clarity ...thanks so much for ur help joan!
Joan is the best! She is very responsive via messages and always helpful during our session. She also is flexible with my crazy work schedule. I appreciate her so much. I have tried therapy in the past but teen counseling has been the best thing for me because of the flexibility. Being able to do virtual appointments makes scheduling so much easier and less intimidating.
a very respectful Therapist
