Joanne Virginio, LMHC.

I am a licensed mental health counselor with several years experience working with children, adolescents and adults. I specialize in clients who have had difficultly connecting with treatment and providers in the past. I draw from a number of treatment modalities including cognitive behavioral treatment, mindfulness, art therapy, psychodynamic treatment, existential therapy and movement.

I have worked in school, residential and outreach settings with a variety of diagnoses including (but not limited to) Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Anxiety, PTSD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Sleep and Mood Disorders. My client base in the past has been diverse ethnically, culturally and clinically and faced issues of trauma, abuse, neglect, poor social supports and high family conflict. I often work with people coping with significant health issues and with LGBTQ+ and gender fluid, non-binary clients.
