Square One Counseling PLLC (Square One for short) was incorporated in 2009 by Joanna Nunez MSW, LCAS, LCSW, CCTP.
Joanna previously worked for Carolina Treatment Center and The Department of the Army (Army Substance Abuse Program) when she realized that most of the substance use/ abuse she saw in her clients came from trying to self medicate. Often these clients had suffered traumas earlier in their life, or in combat. She then decided to open a private practice that focused on trauma.
Joanna works with patients from age 3-103. Her specialties are trauma (combat and non combat related), addictions, mood disorders and anxiety. She sees adults, adolescents, children, individuals, families, couples and any combination of the above. In 2016, she met the International Association of Trauma Professional criteria and passed the tests to become an Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. Joanna spends most of her continuing education focusing in trauma and the best practice/evidenced based ways to treat trauma.
In 2015, Joanna published Finding Peace with PTSD an account of her father's time in Vietnam and a guide for those that live with Combat Veterans with PTSD.
She strives to operate a friendly, judgement free, comfortable practice and feels that her new office on Fountainhead Lane only adds to that mission.
