If you've been struggling, I understand. In my teens I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder and at 26 with PTSD. This radical diagnosis sent me on a quest to discover who I truly am - beyond the label. I wanted to learn how I could really grow and change not just treat symptoms. What I discovered altered my life forever.  Instead of quick-fix solutions focused only on symptom relief I learned practical life skills that have continued to equip me with tools to daily transform patterns that are at the heart of my anxiety and fear.

Read What People are Saying About Working with Joy

Before working with Joy, I was experiencing daily stress and bouts of anxiety. Within the first three months, both lessened by first understanding and then changing how I dealt with unhealthy behavioral patterns. Now I’m better equipped to work through triggers that would normally have sent me spiraling. I highly recommend working with Joy if personal roadblocks are hindering you from living your best life going forward.

I have many years of recovery but I have never made as much progress as I have working with Joy. I have learned to question my thoughts and focus on the positive which has helped me reduce my anxiety. Joy is knowledgeable, practical and encouraging and has made a real difference in my life. Don’t hesitate to work with her.
— Susie
I’ve been to many therapists. I’ve attended countless workshops & retreats —and read dozens of self-help books. No person or strategy has ever made as much difference in my life as the coaching work Joy & I have accomplished. I’m learning to break habits that have been with me for decades. I am now very mindful of my thoughts, my emotions, and my reactions. I’m living life the way that I want to and I’m happier than I’ve ever been. The difference is Joy didnt’ just give me information; she kept me accountable and taught me how to put the tools into daily action.
— Cathy W, Teacher
Joy came into my life when I needed her the most. As a teacher and mentor, Joy really listened to me and helped guide me through the emotional roller coaster I was on. She shared tools and practices that helped rewire my brain and create new and more positive thought patterns and habits, which I still rely on today. Through positive psychology and the wisdom traditions, Joy helped me change my mind, and thus my life.
