About me

I am a trauma and addiction therapist licensed in Nebraska. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, Bipolar Disorder, and Borderline Personality Disorder. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional, sexual and physical abuse.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Joyce truly goes above and beyond. I had a recent situation that was very concerning. Joyce ensured I was safe and immediately adjusted her schedule for the next day to check in and discuss the emergent matter at hand. Thank you Joyce!!!!

Joyce is a truly accepting and non-judgmental person and I am so glad I found her. In a world where I feel continuously judged by myself and others, it is so helpful to spend an hour of my week feeling like everything I am is okay and accepted. Thank you, Joyce.

I can't recommend Joyce enough. She has been very supportive and great to work with. She's accessible and flexible.
I look forward to continuing to work with her as I progress through my mental health journey.
