Joy is an absolute legend. We are working through some problems that have been holding me back for a while and without their help I would not have been heading in a positive direction.

I've only had a few sessions with Joy, but I can already tell she truly listens to me and asks great questions that make me think about my life and relationships in a different way. It's so nice to have a neutral party to talk to and bounce ideas off of. I highly recommend Joy!
