I am licensed in Texas with 14 years of professional work experience. I have experience working with clients who are hesitant about the benefits of therapy, or don't know if they really want to talk to someone in the first place. I have spent a lot of time working with teenagers who don't initially see the value in telling someone other than their friends their problems. I make an effort to be relatable and to not push teenagers too quickly, which means I take the time to get to know them and their interests. I think one of the most important things you can do when working with teenagers is to validate their feelings. Teenagers have stress too! I look forward to being a part of helping a young person navigate life and develop coping skills to help them grow into a mentally healthy adult.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Joanne Curgian. 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.
I love Joanne’s style of communication and the way she makes therapy easy. She listens intently and has a light sense of humor that puts you at ease. She has a flexible schedule and is great with communication.
Really appreciate how response and knowledgeable Joanne is! She was a great fit.
Joanne is a fantastic therapist. My partner and I both felt like she connected with us right off the bat as it was clear she had a fun personality and was straightforward as well. She helped us develop a solid plan for navigating through and preventing future arguments, and my partner and I were able to understand each other better through this process. We highly recommend her to anyone!
Joanne is fun and matches our energy. Couples therapy is new for us and she made it easy to start this journey to make us better. Joanne is funny, smart, and a great mediator. After each session we are both like “I like her”.
