About Joyce

A former client had this to say: “I cannot begin to tell you what a difference you made in my life. Had I not done my work with you, I don’t know that I ever would have grown as much as your help allowed me to do.”

I am a psychotherapist, licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) by the State of California. The MFT license is recognized nationally.

In my practice I work with adults, both individually and in couples, specializing in five areas: relationships, arts and entertainment, business professionals, anxiety and depression and addictions recovery.

As a published author, I have offered many lectures and workshops on a variety of topics.

My book, Someone To Talk To: What Really Happens in Therapy and How it Can Work for You, was written to help people who are considering therapy, or who are in the beginning stages.

Prior to opening my practice, I was a Family Therapist in both outpatient and inpatient substance abuse rehabilitation facilities in Los Angeles.

I studied at the University of California, Berkeley, and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from The University of California, San Diego. I received my Master’s Degree in Psychology from Notre Dame de Namur University, California.

I am a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists and The American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists.

I have been a working artist throughout my life, and have had numerous exhibitions of my paintings and photographs.
