Our Marketing Director, JoyAnn, is also one of our clinicians here at Owens! Her clinical experience can be found under our “Therapist” tab on our website.

JoyAnn’s passion is working throughout the community to end the stigma against mental health and trauma recovery. In doing so, she is able to offer support and services to those in crisis and their loved ones. She loves to be involved in community events and organizations. Most recently, JoyAnn joined the McHenry County Suicide Prevention Task Force and is eager to spread awareness and suicide prevention throughout all four of our locations and their surrounding areas. JoyAnn also spends time working with the McHenry County Crisis Team and Northwest CASA, advocating for victims and survivors of sexual assault; both as a medical and legal advocate.
