Counseling: Words as Healing Medicine

Healing is a spiral path, a natural flow of transformation moving toward growth, balance, and well-being.

Your heart can heal. You can release what no longer needs to be carried. Clarity can be found for new cycles in your life and next steps in your path.

Healing flourishes when you are seen and heard, nourished by connection, and have space for self-discovery and expression. Words and stories can be infused with healing medicine.

Sessions are held in person and online.

Personal Healing Retreat can also be planned to support your healing journeys.

“JoAnne offers something rare in this world: genuine, authentic, and compassionate humanity. She sees you in a way that is uniquely hers and lovingly asks all the right questions to help you distinguish yourself from the narrative of pain you’ve been replaying throughout your life.” ~ J.D.

A Gift for You: Remembering Your Song

Remember your natural ways of being. Feel again the beauty of who you really are.

Song Ceremony

The elders describe your Song as your natural way of being, your genuine self, the knowing of who you really are.

Your Song can be remembered and felt again, even after years of being hidden beneath judgments, stress, lies, and fears.

Everything is alive and has a Song ~ each and every tree, stone, bird, butterfly, human, starfish, river, planet, and grain of sand.

Everyone’s unique Song is in relationship with the Songs of all others, interacting and sharing in the dance of creation, weaving the web of life.

Settle into a quiet space and enjoy…


Manaole U Manaole,

from my heart to the heart of our mother earth to your heart,


“I worked with JoAnne during a time of major transition. JoAnne combined a number of qualities — compassion, non-judgment, insight, and the unwavering belief that I’d land on my feet — to help me to find the right next step on my path. JoAnne’s wonderful ability to hold a caring space for transformation is a great gift to anyone who receives it.” ~ S.L.
