"Working with Joanne has been a wonderful and beautiful gift... I was initially referred to her for help with memory, but very quickly, our sessions turned into so much more... Joanne was my most staunch and steadfast advocate in a very challenging and difficult disability hearing. During that phase of my life, I was completely cognitively challenged. She understood why, and gently- yet-firmly explained how my brain had only a certain amount of 'gumballs,' or cognitive energy. Each and every input (auditory and otherwise) had to be processed, which used up 'gumballs' each time, so my symptoms and limited functioning directly related to 'gumball depletion'. Joanne has helped me understand and better manage basic self-care. Her methods have helped me plan, organize and implement the most basic of Executive Functions, since I am frontal-lobe-challenged. Joanne is much more than a vastly experienced and competent speech and language pathologist... she is a deeply compassionate and gifted healer who has intuition and insight well beyond her realm of expertise. She is indeed, the 'guru of gumballs'. Oh, and this testimonial would be remiss without appropriate recognition of her support team. I haven't worked with Herb personally, but her Office Manager is as polite, professional and helpful as I've ever encountered. :-)" ~ Stu W. 02/18/15
