joannaJoanna Poppink, MFTIf you are troubled with emotional pain or feel sorrow and anger at not being able to live a satisfying life or are frustrated by not acting positively toward fulfilling your goals or even knowing what your goals are, I can help.

If you suffer from an eating disorder or have an eating disorder in your past, or love someone who has an eating disorder, I can help.

I understand that your emotional situation is uniquely yours yet occurs within the context of a complex living situation you want to maintain, change or leave. Also, you are aging, and your physical and emotional needs, priorities and desires are changing.  I bring understanding and compassion to our therapy sessions while I provide you with healing and growth opportunities. We sort through what you see and what you don't see as together we find meaning in your experience, create new self-care tools, find solutions to problems and often bring unexpected new satisfactions and joys into your life.

Joanna & Other Professionals - Consulting and Referrals

I work in a private practice setting where everything that is said is confidential. However, I refer my clients to other clinicians, nutritionists and M.D.'s when needed. I will also consult with professionals in various fields that are related to eating disorder research and treatment.

Making An Appointment for Someone Else

 Mothers, fathers, husbands, boyfriends, sisters, brothers, sons and daughters call me to make appointments for the woman they care about who has an eating disorder.

These people love and are worried about the suffering person.  They may be looking for ways to convince their loved one to go into treatment.  They may be helping that person by doing some scouting to find out what may be available in terms of treatment, and during their research they found me.
