Joan Determann, MSW, LCSW

With immense happiness we introduce to you Joan Determann, NYS Licensed Clinical Social Worker, an exceptional therapist who Dr. Fallon has had the absolute joy of working with, supervising, and mentoring through years of professional growth together. Joan exudes empathy and kindness in her approach to therapy and in all aspects of life. Joan brings to the practice fifteen years of mental health counseling experience, an in-depth understanding of therapeutic techniques, and an impressive track record of successfully helping clients with diverse mental health struggles reach their goals and create positive behavioral change. It is with sincere pleasure as well as genuine confidence in her strong clinical skills and character that Dr. Fallon has asked Joan to once again join her in doing the work we love so much.


Joan’s twenty-year career in the police department that culminated with her work in the special victims unit inspired her to become a therapist. Joan’s wealth of lived experience and deep respect for spirituality and diversity informs her approach to person-centered therapy. Joan is extremely skilled in helping people who struggle with anxiety, depression, panic disorder, agoraphobia, and challenging life transitions. Joan draws from a variety of therapies to best meet the needs of each individual client, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, exposure and response prevention, and systematic desensitization. Joan is passionate about helping individuals and families of all ages enhance their lives by creating the changes they want to experience. She is also deeply interested in encouraging older adults to try therapy during difficult life transitions and challenging times. Joan’s approachable style and genuine desire to help others live more fully is at the heart of her clinical work.
