About Me

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, peace and satisfaction.

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.

Joyce is professional, understanding, empathetic yet firm. I feel like we collaborate well in terms of helping me set and accomplish goals, something that anyone with depression would struggle with. I have complete trust in her abilities.

Joyce responds to my therapy input and provides great suggestions on working through my traumas. She also has great insight into the roots of my reactions with great questions and ideas for processing emotions.

It is early days in my sessions with Joyce however she has already had a big positive impact on my life by helping me to understand more about why I’m feeling the way I feel.

Joyce is the absolute best. I honestly can't imagine mentally where I would be right now if I hadn't started sessions with her. She truly makes an effort to understand where I'm coming from and I am eternally grateful for her compassion, wisdom and dedication.

Written by N.I. on Jun 05, 2018 after counseling with Joyce for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, sleeping, self esteem, and career

I've been working with Joyce the past 6 months. It has been challenging to face some of the things I didn't want to realize and I can honestly say that my life changed a lot for good. She was always caring and quickly to respond. She gave me great tips and I learned a lot from her. I'm very happy I chose BetterHelp (after my experience i became an advocate) and that the system chose Joyce for me, we are a great fit!

Joyce was brilliant and patient with me. She was listening and suggested different ways to help me deal with my situation. I appreciate her very much as I was too low and down. At the moment, I am feeling that I am able to cope with it little bit. Thank you, Joyce! Highly recommended!!

She is a wonderful counselor. She found what I was struggling with right away and did an amazing job to ease my anxiety. If you are having strong anxiety caused by something in the past, she's the right person to talk to.
