What Jonah and Joanne’s Patients Are Saying

“She has helped me tremendously in the early stages of recovery from an eating disorder.”

“I cannot begin to say enough positive things about Joanne. She has helped me tremendously in the early stages of recovery from an eating disorder [ED], and motivates me to continue progressing, constantly encouraging me to move past my comfort zone. I have contacted her numerous times via e-mail/phone when I was having an “ED” moment, and she has always taken the time to talk me through my thoughts and create a plan of action. Her kind, compassionate manner makes working with Joanne very enjoyable in an uncomfortable/unenjoyable state of being. I always look forward to our weekly visits, and would highly recommend her to anybody struggling with this debilitating disease.” – 26-year-old female, Boston, MA

“Jonah’s expertise and guidance has completely changed my life.”

“Jonah’s expertise and guidance has completely changed my life. My relationship with food has improved dramatically. He is an incredible listener and I never felt judged for the thoughts or feelings I expressed during our sessions. He was able to identify my anxieties about food, while building my confidence at the same time. Every session ended with me feeling stronger and more sure of myself. If I had a question or concern in between sessions, I emailed him and he responded immediately. Jonah has a wealth of knowledge and provided me with all the tools I needed to succeed.” – 32-year-old female, Wellesley, MA

“Jonah really works to make sure the solutions we come up with will work for me”

“He is highly ethical and an outstanding listener”
