About Me

Hello and WELCOME! I am a Marriage & Family Therapist with MFT license in 2 states - California and Idaho. I received Master's degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University in 1999. Since then, I I have worked as a Mental Health Clinician in several community counseling centers and continue to hold that position today. I have worked effectively with very diverse population - children, teens, adults and older adults of all backgrounds. l offer Christian-based therapy for real-life issues. I have 22 years of experience in the areas of depression, anxiety, relationship issues, victims of abuse, codependency and trauma resolution. Life can be challenging and difficult and all too often presents us with hurdles that we simply cannot overcome on our own. Sometimes all we need is a compassionate, caring and completely unbiased person to turn to in times of loss, depression and conflict. My goal is to provide you with quality, Christian-based guidance that will help you not only to overcome your present adversities, but also to achieve more peaceful and fulfilled future. Please give me a call today and let me know how I can be of the greatest assistance to you.

Joy is a fantastic listener and has great insights that are extremely thoughtful. She gives plenty of space for her clients to share and gives specific practices for the week outside of the sessions. She is a wonderful therapist and I would recommend her to anyone!
