When you meet Joy, you’ll meet an empathic, knowledgeable, and supportive therapist. In your work together, you’ll focus on healing wounds while learning skills that can help shift your life from surviving to thriving. You’ll build skills to make changes, improve relationships, and nurture parts of yourself that have suffered.
Joy primarily works with children, adolescents, young adults, and biological, foster and adoptive families, but people of all ages are invited to work with her. She has specific experience in treating disordered eating, suicidality, self-harm, school refusal, trauma, and other experiences that put kids and teens at risk. She believes strongly in the mind-body connection and incorporates somatic experience and interpersonal neurobiology into mental health treatment.
Joy’s trained as a generalist, and incorporates a variety of techniques, perspectives, and interventions from therapeutic modalities such as DBT, CBT, TF-CBT, TBRI, person-centered, Attachment therapy, Structural Family Systems therapy, and more.
With a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health from Denver Seminary, Joy has worked in community mental health, inpatient, outpatient, and home-based settings.
