"Joanie has been an extraordinary support for me. Not only am I now aware of my posture, balance and tension, my confidence level has risen considerably because of the work I have done with her. Joanie is gentle and so easy to work with. Her clarity and hands-on guidance has allowed me to re-align my body so that I now feel supported and even graceful! Her extensive experience has given her the ability to see and feel what I cannot. She has given me tools to work with so that what I have learned is not only manageable but sustainable. As a workshop leader and singer, it's important to not only look good on stage but to be able to breathe and stand properly so I can make the most of my talent and share it with others. I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with her and plan to continue to do so!"

I learned to nurturer myself and not feel guilty about it. she also taught me how to break habits that prevented me from reaching my full potential. Joanie wakes people up - she definitely helped me wake up!"
"Joanie was instrumental in helping me break beyond the self-limiting thoughts and actions that had become second-nature over the years. Her insight and coaching gave me new tools for interacting and dealing with friends, family and co-workers. Not only do I count her as an invaluable life coach; she's become an even more indispensable friend."
"Joanie has helped me change my life and go places I had never dreamed of. When I started working with her, I was an aimless graduate student with existential angst. She taught me how to find what was important to me and then focus my energies around those principles, instead of just waiting for life to happen to me. I have become happier and more independent as a result and have let go of unnecessary baggage from the past. I now have the job I want and live in a beautiful apartment. I am also more accepting of life's curveballs and am better able to either dodge them or knock them out of the park. Joanie is an invaluable teacher and friend, and I am grateful to be her student."
