About Joy

Grounded in joy, moving with love, planting peace.

I have a deep commitment to restorative practices.

At the University of California, Berkeley, I led a team that developed the healing services, crisis response, and advocacy for students, staff and faculty impacted by sexual violence/harassment, intimate partner violence, and stalking. Inspired to make healing accessible to survivors of trauma and vicarious trauma, I began my private practice.

My training includes:

  • MSW, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor 

  • BA, Cross-Cultural Perspectives on Gender, Vanderbilt University

  • The Art of Sound Healing Level II Certification, Seattle Sound Temple

  • Certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide, Association of Nature & Forest Therapy

  • Study with the School of Celtic Consciousness

I acknowledge that I work and live on the traditional land of the first people of Seattle, the Duwamish Tribe and honor with gratitude the land itself and the Duwamish people, past and present. Learn how you can stand in solidarity with First Peoples of this land by paying Real Rent.

thank you once again for such a wonderful healing session last month. I've never experienced the bowls in that way, and it was a terrific experience -I'm excited for others [staff] to experience this as well.
