I am a family and marriage therapist licensed in North Carolina with over 11 years of experience working as a therapist for those of all ages. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including relationship issues, parenting problems, family discord, career challenges, assertivness, and an array of sexual functions and dysfunction. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My therapy style is present and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, while also being honest. 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.
As a therapist, I hope to help motivate people in ascertaining their inner strengths and abilities and discovering what truly inspires them. I aim to provide a stimulating and supportive environment that encourages clients to take initiative in their own lives, while fostering confidence to realize their full potential.

Joyce knows my feelings before I do. She encourages me to think and do things outside the box. She is amazing and what I needed in my time of need.

Joyce is a beautiful spirit and listener. She gives relatable and authentic feedback and makes you feel very comfortable not like I’m being judged during my conversations with her. She gives me a space to feel safe and express myself and just release things that are bothering me.

Amazing. I had a therapist before Joyce who didn’t listen or respect my feelings. As soon as I switched to Joyce, I felt an immediate change in professionalism. She listens and gives you actual solutions. She meets me with my humor and allows me to be myself in therapy without judgement. 1000% recommend
