About Joy

Grounded in joy, moving with love, planting peace.

Joy has a deep commitment to restorative practices.

At the University of California, Berkeley, she 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, she began her private practice.


She holds a Masters in Social Work from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and self-designed her major in Cross-Cultural Perspectives on Gender at Vanderbilt University. She completed The Art of Sound Healing Level II certification through the Seattle Sound Temple, is a certified forest therapy guide through the Association of Nature & Forest Therapy, and in her third year of study with the School of Celtic Consciousness.

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.
