JoAnne Ceccarelli-Egan, LCSW, MTS is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Pastoral Counselor. JoAnne was one of the first Pastoral Counselors in Connecticut and was invited to open an office at OLC in order to offer women a Pastoral Counseling perspective with a strong clinical framework.
She began at OLC in 1989, where she established a private counseling practice and became a member of the Retreat Team from 1989-2007. After leaving the team, she developed a self help program entitled Journey Back to Self. She recorded a CD and for the next ten years, presented the program in the Tri-State area.
In 2020, she retired her clinical practice and began to pray about where God was leading her for this next chapter of her life. She is so excited to be called back to the OLC team. She is looking forward to seeing familiar retreatants as well as meeting new women. In addition to presenting a conference talk, JoAnne is delighted that she will be able to provide one on one counseling sessions during the retreat weekend.
