I have worked with teens for over 10 years. I continually work to understand current issues and changes in world attitudes. I have worked with teens struggling in family and social situations. I have also worked with teens in a residential facility. Even the most resistant child/teen appears to be comfortable with my approach, and they feel they can be themselves. I am open to discuss any problem, struggle, and concern. Although I see people of all ages, I have a special focus on child/ adolescent mental well-being. I have helped adolescents with juvenile records, those who are adopted or in foster care, and those who are just struggling with everyday life situations. I have also helped adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, relationship concerns, PTSD, and family concerns.

I would recommend JM to anyone going through a difficult time.
Very attentive. I appreciate her follow up
Very helpful and supportive
Joline has been such a tremendous help in every way. She jumped into the middle of a crisis and I could only afford a month of sessions. While none of the problems could be solved in a month, she gave me the emotional support I needed and offered kind, calm, and supportive suggestions to help me survive. I am so very grateful for her expertise and her ability to grasp everything so quickly . I will miss our sessions . I recommend her 100%.
Joline is a godsend. She makes me feel totally normal and justified while attending to the needs I have mentally. Her style is subtle, supportive, friendly, and just overall feels loving. Sometimes counseling can feel a little "objectifying" when there's not a lot of connection or empathy between counselor and client ~ I feel like I've been (or should have been) talking to Joline most my life. Whenever conflict occurred or my triggers were "triggered" I start a repetitive cycle of anger that would be mentally and physically consuming and ended with me in deep valleys of depression. Now things are different and I have a plan of counterattack that leaves me feeling "unburdened", balanced, and most importantly free.
Joline helped me to focus on the root cause of my anxiety, while providing practical solutions to apply in everyday life. Without her help, I would have spent much more time dwelling in my mind.
When I started with Joline, I wanted to work on self forgiveness, self love as well as my goals. She has been a great listener and has given me worksheets to work on. Reviewing them and her asking me key questions have been absolutely necessary for my progress. I am appreciative of this service and recommend it.
Joline is always ready to reach out, offering counsel with respect and warmth.
Joline has been amazing, it helped me understand where I was in my journey and helped me realise I’m on the right track.
Joline came into my life at a time when my second marriage had just ended. I needed support and I needed it now. teen counseling allowed me to reach out when I needed it most. With the mental health industry under so much pressure, wait times are too long locally. Joline made me feel heard and that everything I’m feeling is normal and expected. She helped me with strategies to manage my emotions and is teaching me the importance of self care. Mostly she is teaching me about boundaries and the need to have them in order to protect myself. Very happy and I will continue to engage with Joline
Joline was quick to help me in exactly the areas I needed help so she was targeted and effective. She sent me a lot of Bible verses that were helpful to me and also shared her personal experiences which were tremendously helpful. It was exactly the spiritual guidance that I needed at this time. With her help I overcame a major obstacle in my life that was causing me so much deep pain and I will be forever grateful.
I like that she gives me Bible verses to go with my counseling.
She is very responsive and she is very good.
Joline is very easy to talk to. I was so nervous and didn’t know how the first session would go, but she gave good conversation prompts and made it feel like a chat with a friend.
