Having that special someone in your life helps you 
to feel so much more beautiful, vibrant and alive!

Hello, my name is Joan Stenzler!

I specialize in helping couples to create relationships that are healthy, meaningful and satisfying.


My Unique Approach:

I am an experienced psychotherapist and Body-Mind expert with 26 years of experience teaching, helping and guiding people toward greater health, happiness and emotional well-being. Using an integrative approach I have helped patients find practical solutions to challenges they face in life and to transform their experience!

 I have a holistic orientation to counseling, combining the best of Western psychological theory with wellness concepts from yoga, meditation and mindfulness practices.
I frequently encourage patients to examine their lifestyle choices and share ideas with them on nutrition and ayurveda that can improve how they experience life.

I have studied spiritual concepts from contemplative traditions and integrate the best of all I have come across when it is relevant and if my patients are receptive to a more expansive view of their life circumstances.
