Hi! My name is Joyce A. Graham. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I completed my Master's Degree in Community Counseling at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. I currently have a private practice in Missouri where my counseling specialties include issues involving anxiety; depression; grief/loss; stress; and PTSD.
The interpersonal strengths that I bring to the counseling profession are compassion, a genuine concern for the welfare of others, and Christian integrity. I know, personally, what it means to face adversity and I have a passionate desire to see others overcome the struggles, pain, and disappointments of life.
Counseling is my passion! My counseling style is eclectic which means that I believe that the therapeutic process should be tailored to address the individual concerns of the client.
I love walking along side people as they work through life challenges. I am here to provide a safe, supportive, and nurturing environment. I want to assure you that anything you share with me will be held in the strictest of confidence and your privacy is protected.
On a personal note, I have been married for 42 years and am the mother of 3 grown children; 2 daughters and 1 son. If you want to know more about me, please feel free to ask.
I commend you for reaching out for counseling. Having someone to talk to makes it easier to process our feelings. I believe that you and I working together can begin addressing your concerns and work towards processing any challenges or obstacles to your success.
I look forward to communicating with you soon!
