Joanna has been in private practice since 1980.  All her studies are informed and enriched by the personal experiences her clients share with her throughout their recovery work. Their courage, creativity, determination, pain and suffering, joy and developing strength continually teach her the depth and range of the healing experience in eating disorder recovery.
