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: Understanding How Therapy Heals, 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.
