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 through the Seattle Sound Temple

  • Certified nature and forest therapy guide through the Association of Nature & Forest Therapy

  • In my 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.
