Jovica Grey

(LMHC, NCC)

About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and National Certified Counselor who has 5+ years experience in the field of addictions and co-occurring disorders. I am also an EMDR trained therapist who work with individuals who have experienced trauma such as PTSD, complex trauma and sexual abuse. Moreover, I work with individuals, couples and families.

I work with issues such as substance abuse, anxiety, depression, low self esteem, trauma, anger management, women issues, emotional disturbances and other life stressors. My areas of interest includes love and sex addiction, codependency and relationship conflict.

I believe that early childhood experiences play a major role in our lives as adults. If we were neglected , lacked nurture and support; this affects our ability to have meaningful and healthy relationships and impair our self-esteem and self-worth. I utilize an integrative approach in therapy based on each individual’s needs; however when working with these issues, I often utilize inner child work and cognitive behavioral therapy.

She is quite friendly and attentive. Makes it easy to open me and then she prescribes an easy and effective solution of my problem.

Written by C.A. on Oct 08, 2018 after counseling with Jovica for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues

Jovica is a top-tier professional that makes the entire experience worth it. I was a bit worried about how the digital experience would be with a therapist, being so apersonal and distant; Jojo made that misconception banished with her interest about really getting to know me and helping me in a way that, not even in-person session has.

I started with a different match who did not fit with me at all, she was too brief and blunt . So when I got Jovica's first response to me I was so happy that it was long! It seemed a lot more like she had taken time to read though what I had written and she asked me follow up questions which made me feel like she was interested in fully understanding what I was saying before making a firm response. I found that so helpful because in having to reconsider how to explain things I was able to see that it might actually be other things that were upsetting me more than what I had thought was the original reason. I appreciate so much that Jovica is thorough in her replies and checks in when I get too hectic to sit down and formulate a message.

Jo Jo is wonderful. She has a lot of empathy, is very supportive, and seems to understand how difficult my journey is. She is helping me find the best way to navigate my recovery, and not jamming cookie cutter strategies down my throat.

I would and have recommended a few individuals to Jovica. She is the detailed oriented when it comes to things you may not have been thinking of but would have mentioned. She follows through with you and makes your experience interactive so that your sessions don’t just cover what’s wrong but builds your mind for the future. Excellent person to work with especially for persons with antisocial tendencies.

Jovica has been really helpful. She listens attentively and helps me navigate issues in a way that feels empowering. She is great at checking in and always remembers the important issues at hand.

Jojo is very good at listening and validation. She also holds me accountable and helps me come up with plans. Her background in trauma is most beneficial. I needed someone who understands CPTSD and trauma work.

JOvica absolutely rocks and knows how to pull me out of my head and makes me remember to breathe.

Jojo is like the cool, refreshing, and much needed glass of water on a hot and humid day. After working with her for 10 weeks now, I feel for the first time in a long time, like someone understands and cares about me and my well being and is willing to help me make the changes I want and need to. I look forward to continuing my therapy with Jojo.

Written by J.O. on Jul 17, 2018 after counseling with Jovica for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

I was anti therapy, thought it was a waste of time and pointless. After talking to Jovica for about 2 months now my mind set has completely changed. It nice to talk to a non-biased person and open up completely. I do appreciate her and the time she has spent with me, making me a better man and person.

I have been talking to Jovica for three months and she has been fantastic. She is patient and knows just what to say to put me at ease. She is a fantastic therapist.

Written by M.I. on Jun 04, 2018 after counseling with Jovica for 2 weeks on issues concerning family, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

Entering the therapy world, I knew exactly what I was getting myself into. I wanted to get clarity and gain a perspective from a professional regarding some issues I was dealing with. I read Ms.Grey’s bio and instantly knew she was the one. She actively listen to my rants and emotional break downs. Her expert advice was what I needed for an emotional break through. Although she was my counselor for 3 weeks, she helped me so much in so little time!
