About Joanna Doane Ottavio

Joanna Doane Ottavio, LCSW, provides individual counseling services to adults living throughout the state of Arizona. Over the past 5 years working in behavioral health, she has served adults throughout the Phoenix metro area struggling with homelessness, severe mental illness, and serious substance use disorders. Through her services, countless individuals have learned to successfully confront and overcome self-defeating thoughts and beliefs.

At Doane Counseling Services, she strives to remove barriers for adult Arizonans who live with little-to-no access to individual counseling services. While you likely fit into this category if you live in rural Arizona, it may just as easily be that you have a busy schedule or have limited transportation.

Clients are not seen as "numbers" at Doane Counseling Services, but as human beings worthy of professional care. Joanna's vision for client recovery is for each person she serves to be able to realize their true worth, learn to respect themselves as inherently valuable, and to recognize their full potential.

Her approach is calm, nonjudgmental, and authentic.
