Joanna Lilley, M.A., NCC

Joanna Lilley, M.A., NCC, holds a Master’s degree in Counseling from West Virginia University in Morgantown, WV, and is a Nationally Certified Counselor. Before entering the consulting field, Joanna collectively worked with struggling adolescents and young adults for over ten years. She guided off and on for six years with state-run and private wilderness therapy programs. Joanna coached students on academic probation at two institutions of higher education, as well as served on a university treatment team for students who deferred their suspension by opting into an in-house recovery program.

After working with many struggling young adults, Joanna made the professional leap to start supporting this population and their families in a consulting capacity only. This role includes serving as an independent matchmaker between resources for the young adult.

Joanna is empathetic, caring, direct, and transparent, allowing her to easily connect with the family and young adults. Joanna’s honesty and upfront demeanor have been most valued and appreciated.
