Joanna Lilley, MA, NCC

Therapeutic Consultant / Young Adult Transition Specialist / Mental Health Advocate

http://www.lilley-consulting.com
After previously working at two institutions of higher education, specifically in Student Success & Retention, Joanna hung up her shingle to provide support for the flight of students leaving colleges campuses.  She now dedicates herself to working solely with emerging adults who unravel when they land on a college campus.  Her passion and drive is to connect this population to mental health and substance abuse treatment programs that will provide stability, sobriety, and the executive functioning skills this population needs to move forward in life.  Most of her clients are currently enrolled on campus, or those who have already left feeling defeated.  With a magic wand, Joanna would proactively support young adults with pre-existing mental health issues with their the transition into higher education.  Fear not, she works with the entire family system to help them heal and grow as this is not a "quick fix."  You can learn more about Lilley Consulting by checking out the website; specifically referencing the Services and Resources links.  You can also follow the Therapeutic Consultant Corner on YouTube where she answers common questions asked of Therapeutic Consultants when a family is unsure of what to do to support their loved one.  When not working with young adults, you will find Joanna writing or playing outdoors with her two rescue mutts in the mountains of western Colorado.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
