My Therapy & Approach

Hi my name is Joy! I am a compassionate Licensed Social Worker who has spent her career in mental health working with children, teens and adults achieve their journey to wellness.

My journey in mental health began with working as a Case Manager for those diagnosed with severe disorders to secure housing and state entitlement services . From there I ventured into working in a Partial Care program offering group and individual therapy to adults.

I have spent the last 8 years working in education as a Certified School Social Worker where I had the awesome opportunity to work with students from grades K-12 navigate school-aged challenges while seeking wellness and assurance.

As a therapist, my role has allowed me to come alongside my clients and help them to see the clearest path for their life. I will work to empower you to have your own voice. To help you feel validated, I will use my extraordinary active listening skills helping you to feel safe and supported. I hope to respectfully challenge you to be the best version of yourself.

I look to become mindful of all aspects of your identity by offering you the best tools to do the work. I use a person-center approach to therapy, incorporating your thoughts and feelings into the session. So, that you feel encouraged and autonomous about your life's journey.
