Joy is passionate about working with people who are ready to drop their old defensive postures and are willing to try on new ways of living and loving. She brings a depth of experience, both personally and professionally, to her relationship work. A highly-skilled communicator, she transmits her wealth of knowledge through not only words, but through the fabric of Being that connects her to all life, including her clients. Unflinchingly honest, she allows her well-honed intuition to guide her work.
A true guide, Joy holds space for others to explore and express their own truth in a spacious, non-judgmental container. She brings a lovely balance of depth and lightness to all she touches. A big believer in results-oriented coaching, she has spent over 30 years cultivating mind-body-heart practices that she shares in loving detail with her clients. One basic premise of her practice is to “not believe what I say is true, but to try it on for yourself and check out your own results.” Play, awareness practices, self-inquiry and whole-body expression are integrated into everything she offers.
Joy has an extensive background in a variety of mind-body-soul disciplines. A past ordained minister, her background includes leading peer counseling and support groups, coaching and Enneagram applications. She is also certified as a Pilates Trainer, Breema® Bodywork Instructor and Reflexologist. A space holder for the divine, she has acted as guide for many during transformative states of consciousness, working with plant and energy medicines.
Born, raised and deeply influenced by the expansive beauty of coastal California, Joy now resides in Ashland, OR with her beloved partner, Thunder. She considers him one of the greatest blessings of her life and cherishes his presence in her ever-expanding life.
