What Makes Joy Unique

I firmly believe that counseling is my calling and my gift. There’s something special about sitting down with someone, hearing their story, and helping them make progress towards their goal. I believe that everyone has their own unique story, and my story has uniquely shaped me to help better serve everyone who sits across from me.

I have experience working with many different groups of people in many different places.  I worked for a year in a group home, where I engaged with teenage boys in the foster care system with behavioral problems. I have worked with adolescents in a wide variety of settings, including camp, non-profits, and different size churches. I have worked with adults in poverty through my job at a non-profit,  building relationships and writing curriculum to teach stress management and communication skills. I have also trained adults in workplace skills as a Corporate Trainer. I have helped people of all ages grow personally by pushing themselves and as a team in challenges such as team building initiatives, high ropes course, and zip line as a Challenge Course Facilitator. As a counselor, I operate from a wide variety of modalities based on what works for the client, but tend to gravitate towards Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Strengths-Based therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, and Gottman techniques for marriage therapy. My specialization at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary was trauma. I have completed training in the Gottman technique.
