What Clients Say

Dr Bolster is an angel. She is kind, compassionate and caring, extremely knowledgeable, eloquently spoken and patient. She stuck with me during my first year of therapy, despite my unwillingness to be there and my complete lack of self awareness. I have grown to love and appreciate our time together, there is always some new insight that she helps me with. She says things in a way that I can hear them and she never judges. Her office is peaceful and inviting. I highly recommend Dr. B. and I am so grateful that the universe sent me in her direction.

Meet Dr. Joanna

Hello, I'm Dr. Joanna Bolster, Dr. B, Dr. J, Joanna, and I'm a Registered Psychologist. I’m also a Mom to three boys who both delight and grow me daily, and have a golden retriever named Daisy who has an uncanny ability to source food from counters despite all human efforts to avoid this. Ask me someday about how my dog started a fire in our home by sourcing out cookies!
