Joanna Metcalf, BA, ECE Certification

Administrative Assistant 


My own career path has been a windy road, but mental health and social emotional growth have always been core values. I learned to focus under pressure, problem solve, and find peace among chaos in my time as a pastry chef (beyond creating delicious desserts). As a preschool teacher, I strived to lay the foundation for emotional regulation and social skills in young children, support parents in understanding child development, and connect families in need with community resources. I have nurtured a love of music and instilled the importance of practice, dedication and persistence as a piano teacher. Juggling a dozen or more after-school schedules each week allowed me to hone my organizational abilities.


I am grateful to be on board with the Identity group to support clients and counselors in the service of our community. My own mental health journey is a daily practice. I have personally experienced the healing benefits of EFT, EMDR, cognitive behavioral therapy, dance, meditation, nature, crafting, music and art. Processing trauma and understanding who I am beyond labels, imposed beliefs and values, and mainstream culture has given me a key. The door to freedom and self love opens more each day.
