Therapist & Intake Coordinator
As the intake coordinator with the Phoenix center for experiential trauma therapy, it is my honor to assist you in beginning your journey of healing. With compassion, understanding, and empathy as guides; together we will help you get connected to the proper services. Often times when we are reaching out for help, it is when we need it the most. It can be scary and confusing to navigate the mental health treatment continuum. I utilize my years of experience in admissions/intake counseling roles and clinical knowledge to help you cultivate the courage to discover the best fit for your needs. Reaching out for help is the first step toward post-traumatic growth.
If you are ready to find a therapist or join our therapy groups please contact Joe for an intake at 484-440-9416.
