What does therapy with Joy look like?

Empathy

I begin by working to deeply understand what you tell me about yourself and your experiences. I believe that your sense of safety to share will grow as I show you that I'm seeing your life through your eyes, and feeling it with you.

Insight

We'll tend to your story with care, making sense of it together. As we bring compassion, rather than judgment, to your feelings and experiences, insight emerges. Confusion transforms into understanding, and areas of fear and shame begin to heal.

Application

While deep presence and careful listening are hallmarks of my approach, I'm also a very active therapist. At a pace that feels good to you, I'll ask questions and provide suggestions and feedback. When it's a practical path forward you're looking for, we will collaborate in mapping out your next steps.
