JoJo has been trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy by Behavioral Tech, in Motivational Interviewing by the Training and Practice Implementation Institute, and in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) for trauma.

She has expertise working with individuals ranging from fourteen years old to eighty years old with co-occurring substance abuse issues/process addictions and borderline personality disorder, ADHD, anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, and/or eating disorders.

Prior to working at BPS, JoJo was a DBT Therapist at Freedom Institute, a non-profit substance abuse outpatient program, where she taught DBT skills in the Intensive Outpatient Program, facilitated an Advanced DBT Practice group, and combined behavioral approaches with psychodynamic therapy in individual therapy. Additionally, JoJo interned at Silver Hill, a residential treatment facility, where she ran DBT skills groups and process groups for adults and adolescents. She was trained and supervised by the Director of Group Therapy, where she learned techniques for creating a safe and supportive environment in group work.

With a recent move to San Diego, JoJo enjoys taking walks and runs along the ocean, making her family jealous with pictures of the sunset, avoiding going to the same restaurant twice, reading, mindful cooking, and planning trips around the world with her husband. She spends quality time with her nephew and niece whenever she can and loves rainy days and sunny days just the same.
