Get to know Joni

Joni Rorije offers individual therapy specializing in adult ADHD, teens with ADHD (and their parents), college students, anxiety, stress, burnout, and navigating major life transitions. Joni has a passion for working with people who feel that they don’t fit the “typical” mold - including those who are LGBTQIA+, neurodivergent, marginalized, or are simply looking for someone who will accept and welcome them for who they are. Joni also welcomes clients with nerdy interests, such as video games and Dungeons and Dragons. Joni believes in honoring the uniqueness of every client - whether they are searching for meaning and direction, learning how to “adult”, or trying to understand themselves better. 

Her counseling philosophy is based in Existential-Humanistic Therapy - she believes everyone is the expert in their own life, and everyone can create their own meaning in life with the right tools and support. She also integrates techniques from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, mindfulness, and other therapy techniques based on her clients’ unique needs. Like Irvin Yalom, an American existential psychiatrist, Joni aims to “create a new therapy for each patient.”

Joni has a background in environmental science and middle and high school education. She discovered that her favorite part of education was the opportunity to develop individual connections with young people and help them navigate their goals for the future. She herself struggled with finding her path, working through self-doubt and perfectionism, as well as her own adult ADHD diagnosis, to find her passion for counseling and for life. Joni received her Bachelor’s of Science in Biology from Southern Methodist University and earned her Masters in Professional Counseling from Amberton University. 

Joni’s ethnic background is Korean and Dutch; she is the child of first-generation immigrants and grew up with mixed cultural influences in Wichita Falls, TX. When she is not working, she enjoys playing video games and tabletop games, especially fantasy RPGs and indie games. She also enjoys spending time in nature, gardening with native plants, birding, listening to alternative and electronic music, learning about obscure topics, and hanging out with her husband and cat.
