Written by S.A. on May 28, 2022 after therapy with Joy for 1 year and 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Joy quite literally saved my life. She and I were matched at a time when my life was overwhelming and I was buried in my emotions. She listens to me, calms me down, and gives me advice for going forward without her. After many therapists in my life, she was the first and only to properly diagnose my mental health so that I could reach out to a psychiatrist and get medicated. After that, my life changed in the most profound ways. It brings myself (and Joy) to tears when we talk about the growth, change, and love that are in my life now that I am mentally supported by a well-educated team of professional women. I will never be able to thank Joy enough. In just one year she saved my life and helped guide me towards a wildly beautiful one. If I could hug her, I would.

Ms Moseri is an awesome therapist. She listens but also gives you constructive feedback. She won’t tell you what you want to hear which is important for all of us. I feel lucky to have found her.

Joy has been wonderful thus far.

Written by M.O. on Apr 28, 2022 after therapy with Joy for 6 months

She was a wonderful therapist who was the perfect choice for all of the problems I needed help working through. She gave good worksheets to help practice and gave great advice without being judgmental. She always left an open space for me to talk openly as well. She was very responsive too! I even messaged her during a really hard point in my life and she got back to me immediately. All in all I no longer need therapy and if that isn’t the goal then I don’t know what is. She was a gem.

I think miss joy is funny yet series. My first session i could tell she was there to help not not just there to be there. The few sessions i have had, i think have had me thinking more then i have in the past year.

Written by T.A. on Dec 17, 2021 after therapy with Joy for 11 months on issues concerning family conflicts, and trauma and abuse

Joy is wonderful! She gave me the tools to set boundaries, use my voice, handle childhood trauma triggers, and remain peaceful as I was planning my wedding. Each session was impactful and gave me something to think about and work on. If you’re a high achiever like me, Joy’s call structure and focuses will align with you. I’m so grateful for our time together and the value she’s added to my life.

Joy is genuinely the best counsellor you can have, kind, understanding but will hold you accountable to get better and improve. She has helped me learn a lot of things about myself, and continues to make me challenge myself, my thoughts and provide me with options that fit to me

Written by M.A. on Sep 02, 2021 after therapy with Joy for 9 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and family conflicts

I’ve been paired up with Joy twice now to help with my anxiety. The second time I felt that I needed support, I knew right away that I needed to contact Joy again. She provides a safe space for me to get my feelings out and come to solutions for any issues I am facing. She has helped me through some very dark times.

Written by M.A. on Aug 02, 2021 after therapy with Joy for 4 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and coaching

I did four sessions with Joy dealing with grief, a long-distance relationship, a major career change and general “growing pains” and I am so thankful for her! Constant focus on problem-solving and acquiring the necessary skills to deal with life’s adversities and make the most out of every situation. Recommend her endlessly!

Joy is the perfect therapist for me. She is helping me with past, present issues and future goals. I highly recommend her! If you are an entrepreneur I would say she is definitely the best mix of therapist and business coach.

Written by S.A. on Mar 29, 2021 after therapy with Joy for 4 months

Joy has helped me overcome numerous challenges regarding stress and the forming of healthy relationships and has prepared me for future challenges which could arise through her solution-based methods and the numerous worksheets and activities I completed. Joy is extremely friendly and understanding as well as has a good sense of humour, making it easy to feel comfortable opening up to her. Thanks a lot Joy!

Written by N.A. on Mar 15, 2021 after therapy with Joy for 3 months on issues concerning lgbt

I recently was a client of Joy's. I had an intimacy problem and Joy was able to listen to my concerns and provide solutions to them. She was patient and understanding. With her help I was able to overcome the issues I had and my relationship is all the better for it.

Joy is a wonderful active listener who was respectful to my knowledge of mental health and therapy as a therapist and was able to work with me to help reframe my thoughts and reconnect wi. Myself

Written by L.E. on Mar 12, 2021 after therapy with Joy for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and self esteem

Joy is beyond wonderful. She can maintain an objective point of view, yet speak to your heart. She can spot exactly what one needs to work on, and how to get there as quickly and effectively as possible. She's been my light in this journey. She also replies quickly to messages.

Written by K.A. on Feb 16, 2021 after therapy with Joy for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, bipolar disorder, and coping with life changes

I’ve only had my first session with Joy, but I have been to a few therapists before and in my one session I’ve already felt thoroughly heard. One of the most helpful and productive sessions I’ve ever had!

Written by N.I. on Feb 02, 2021 after therapy with Joy for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, eating disorders, self esteem, anger management, and bipolar disorder

The first month I had with Joy was very helpful. She gave me some mental exercises that I’ve never seen or heard of before. She is the first therapist I had that actually strived for progress. The previous therapists I went to were somewhat slow and didn’t give me dependable advice. There was always a disconnect with them. With Joy I feel like I learned a lot about myself. She is very kind and open minded. I feel like I can manage my mental health better because of her!

Written by S.H. on Jan 20, 2021 after therapy with Joy for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, family conflicts, parenting issues, and anger management

Joy is very helpful and take my concerns very seriously. She sends me lots of resources to help me and respond quickly to my questions. I would definitely recommend her.

Written by K.E. on Jan 12, 2021 after therapy with Joy for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

I’ve been struggling with social anxiety and depression for a while and mostly tended to avoid a lot of social situations. Joy really helped me push myself outside my comfort zone and I’m extremely grateful to her. She’s also a very down-to-earth person that is very easy to talk to and I felt extremely comfortable talking and discussing my issues with her.

She help me so much

Written by H.A. on Dec 03, 2020 after therapy with Joy for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and career difficulties

Joy noticed aspects of my personality right away, and suggested a task-based plan that had clear goals for each step. She helped me isolate topics and stay focused when things were stressful and jumbled up in my mind. Her handle on the BetterHelp website is incredible--she has worksheets and goal marks and is very communicative via the chat. She made me feel heard from even my daily journals. Her attentive care was firm and self-assured, which helped me feel like I am in control of my life again.

Joy is great. It’s still early in our sessions but I feel like she will be able to help me through this difficult time in my life right now.

Written by O.L. on Nov 22, 2020 after therapy with Joy for 1 week on issues concerning relationship issues

Joy was extremely helpful. She helped me when I felt completely hopeless and trapped in my relationship. Although it was very difficult to talk to my partner about the issues, Joy helped me get very clear on my goals, and helped me communicate assertively - without getting into a fight.

Written by S.Y. on Nov 18, 2020 after therapy with Joy for 4 days on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Holy moly. Joy is GOOD. I felt super comfortable with her. At first I didn't know where to start because sometimes the things in our head can feel like they're building up, but she was able to make sense of the knot of things I struggle with. Not only did she makes sense of it, but she pinpointed things that I know I struggle with that I didn't vocalize. I’m really excited to work with Joy. I have a good feeling that I’m going to grow a lot through this.

Work with me!
