  • Joy Turner

    Since I was a young girl, I have aspired to help people. I have worked as a Mental Health Therapist for 15 years with a wide variety of adults, families, children/teens and couples. I recognize the importance of supporting individuals and families based on their uniqueness and differences. There is no “one size fits all” form of therapy and I pride myself on building a strong relationship with my clients to facilitate change and growth through my own personal and professional experiences.

    Areas of Expertise: I am currently the owner and Clinical Director of Joyful Living Behavioral Health. I have a wide variety of experience in Supervision as well as one on one therapy, family therapy and couples’ work. I practice a wide variety of techniques and modalities based on each individual. I have 10-Years working in Human Resources and Philanthropic work, which has contributed to my knowledge base. I work with ages 16 and over and my specialties include:

    “The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change his future by merely changing his attitude” 
    Oprah Winfrey

    My Specialties

    • Couples/Families/Blended Families – including sex therapy (individuals or couples)- I help couples and families with sexual dysfunction, intimacy issues, communication, family patterns/dynamics, problem solving, empathy, boundary awareness, conflict resolution and anger management. I assist families with strengthening their relationships and learning to overcome challenges together.
    • Trauma – Traumatic experiences can leave a deep imprint on the body and mind. The effects of trauma can alter your brain and nervous system, leading to dysregulation which can lead to depression and anxiety and can impact your mood and relationships. I am a trained EMDRIA therapist and I also work with different modalities specific to soothing the nervous system supporting both mind and body healing.
    • Grief & Loss – How individuals experience grief can vary from person to person, coming to terms with feelings of loss and making sense of it can be an emotionally painful process. Grief occurs across all ages but is processed differently. I use the five stages of grief (initially coined by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross) along with CBT techniques to help process grief and bereavement.
