About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in the state of Ohio, is a native of Columbus, Ohio, and a graduate of The Ohio State University. My passion and calling to help others motivated myself to pursue and earn a Master of Arts in Counseling degree from Cincinnati Christian University. Through an understanding of mental health, the brain, and developmental and relational trauma, I assist individuals using primarily a cognitive-behavioral therapy approach in my work. I am driven to help those who have experienced trauma and other adverse experiences gain an understanding and feel relief from their symptoms.

Joy is very kind, she encourages me to ask questions about myself I typically don’t put much thought into. She is very personable, and responds on the message board throughout the week.

Joy has been very supportive and has asked me many great questions to help guide me to solutions through our counseling sessions. I appreciate her candor and "realness". She always answers my messages timely and is available for live chat when I have pressing issues I'd like to discuss. I am very pleased with my interactions with her and the service that BetterHelp provides.
