About Me

Hi! I’m Christy. I’m the owner and a therapist at Journey to Joy Counseling.
I believe that many people reach a point in their lives where they feel overwhelmed by life. This could be triggered by the loss of a job, a struggling marriage, family issues, or a personal battle.
It can be hard to reach out for help. Sometimes it may feel easier just to withdraw or isolate, mask, or even ignore the problem. I’ve learned that while these attempts to cope may help temporarily, they don’t make the problems go away. The best thing we can do for ourselves is to seek help.
People often ask me “How can counseling help?” I’ve learned from my own personal experience with therapy that counseling provides a safe space, a neutral party to bounce things off of, and a place to process things you may not realize you need to address.
I believe that it is important to meet people where they are emotionally. No matter where you are on your journey, you need to be able to evaluate how you got to this point, and where you want to go from here.
It’s important for me to understand the goals you have for your life and your personal growth. I want to offer you a neutral support system, a trusting and collaborative relationship, and my knowledge, experience, and training in order to help you have the best therapy experience.

About Journey to Joy Counseling

Journey to Joy was created after I had been working as a therapist for almost a decade.  I wanted to create a space and a brand that is warm and inviting. The name Journey to Joy came from my belief that counseling is all about the journey, and that you have to enjoy the journey, not just the destination. Joy is not just happiness, it is great happiness, jubilation, and celebration. My hope is that you will be able to find joy while you are on your journey.
