Joy is a wonderful professional. She helped me through a very tough time in my life, and helped me develop the tools I needed to get through it. She is incredibly empathetic, patient, a great listener, and very professional. I always knew she was looking out for me and cared dearly about my progress. Can’t recommend Joy enough!
