Before I started working with Joy, I was in a very bad place emotionally and mentally...dealing with depression and anxiety. I had lost sight of who I was. I was very angry and often held grudges, never giving a second chance. For most of my life, I have bottled everything up and pushed it to the back of my mind to avoid dealing with anything. ...Joy was very patient with me and then she helped me to come up with steps I can take to change the things that I want to. Today I am in a much better place...I am much more confident in my ability to make the changes in my life to be happier.Joy is someone that I can talk to without judgement and I know that she genuinely cares about helping people. I was able to open up to her without hesitation about thoughts and things that I haven’t shared with anyone before. I don’t think that I will ever find all the words necessary to thank her for helping me get on the path to helping myself become the person I have always wanted to be.
I met with Joy to get some perspective on areas of my life that had become a source of frustration for me. Joy helped me make an action plan to get me back on track. Her suggestions weren't huge changes, but little things that I could add to my daily routine which, in turn, have made a big impact. These simple suggestions were things that sometimes weren't obvious to me because I was so caught up in my own head and feeling overwhelmed. Joy has a warm perspective, a wonderful objectivity, and a willingness to help out. It's been a pleasure working with her.
I came to Joy when I was having trouble managing my anxiety and stress. I was feeling overwhelmed faced with goals I wanted to reach but with so much to do I felt paralyzed and stuck. I wasn't sleeping well and felt like I was constantly trying to catch my breath. I didn't know where to start. Joy helped me put my life into categories and encouraged and provided me with the tools to start with small steps towards my goals. With her guidance, I've been able to make changes in my day to day that have slowly helped me get closer to the kind of life I want to be living.
