Joseph Paul Panza

Licensed Professional Counselor

During my 20 years in counseling and helping professions, I have seen people face their fears, experience growth, and find self-worth & purpose. By changing our thinking & outlook slightly new directions and possibilities are opened. My practice is dedicated to helping you find a new perspective.

My Approach

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: our thoughts cause our feelings and behaviors, not external things, like people, situations, and events.Working together, we can change the way you think, feel, and act even if the situation does not change. Gottman Couples Therapy examines how partners construct their relational emotional experience by targeting how they engage and communicate with one another. EMDR: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing for traumatic life events.

My Background

I have been working in the counseling and helping professions since 2000. I received a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Alliant International University at the California School of Professional Psychology. My studies focused on Family Systems Theory as well as various therapeutic approaches, lifecycle development, and addiction studies. Additionally I have over 18 years of personal recovery from alcohol and substance abuse.
