All of us, at some point, encounter a problem that seems insurmountable. For more than 25 years, I have helped a variety of people from all walks of life find solutions to issues at home, at work, in the military, at school, in their relationships or within themselves. I have in-depth knowledge of people in law careers, having worked 8 years in law firms. In addition, I was a partner is a counseling practice called Homefront LLC that counseled service members, their families, first responders and trauma survivors.
Some people have suffered loss or trauma. Others are struggling with family problems or workplace dissatisfaction. Many are feeling lost, confused or frustrated. Counseling can resolve these challenges and lead to a life that is rewarding and enjoyable.
I have a MS degree in psychology and a certification for Military/Veteran Behavioral Health from the DOD. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Delaware in the US and am a Nationally Certified Counselor.
My style of counseling involves working together in a safe and supportive space at a pace set by the client. We will identify strengths and understand challenges. We will look at behaviors that are beneficial and those that are limiting. We will design new approaches, practice new skills and assess the outcomes. Together we will craft a new direction that leads to happiness, self acceptance and achievement.
Everyone has the capacity for growth and development. And, I believe that we all deserve a happy and fulfilling life. If this is what you are looking for, I would be pleased to work with you.

I've been working with Joyce for almost 2 years now and she has helped me on every step of my recovery journey.
She is very experienced, an attentive listener and patient in her approach.
I can highly recommend her, especially to those struggling with CPTSD/PTSD.

Joyce is fantastic. She really helped me through some tough times. My moms cancer diagnosis, her passing, my recently diagnosed chronic disease and my stressful job situation. She kept me sane through it and still does.

Joyce has been by my side through various countries and different times of crisis in my life. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for her. Four years of constant support and counting! Thank you Joyce for everything you do!

I adore Joyce, She is incredibly intelligent and reads me very well. She’s helped me (and continues to help me,) with childhood trauma, fertility issues and adhd.
I’ve had other therapists and counselling over the years and without doubt Joyce is the best I’ve had.
She was brilliant when I was at my lowest reminding me not to put pressure on myself, tactics to help with panic attacks and to give my body time to recovery from ivf, basically making sure I was being kind to me.
I’m now on a journey of understanding my adhd and more ivf in the future is on the cards and I feel better knowing that I have this support system in the shape of joyce! Thank you

Joyce Keene is a great therapist. I feel very comfortable opening up to her and I never feel pressure from her, but I can progress with things in my own pace. I have been feeling bad for a long time without really being able to understand what makes me so anxious all the time, but Joyce is able to read me and ask questions that help me to understand the situation and suggests actions I can try to make it better.
