About Me

Hello there, I’m Therapist Joy, a Multidisciplinary Practitioner and Special Educator in Complex Trauma Approaches and Consults. A survivor of severe abuse, I Advocate and educate on a senior level as to best practices when providing care around this new and developing issue which requires careful and thoughtful planning and encouragement towards an abuse free life, with resiliency like has never been experienced. I draw upon many modalities, and work alongside Harvard University as a Professional Practitioner in expanding and being the best I can possibly offer all sectors in a high demand area, with specialised focus and personal integrity an essential component as part of the issues I have given the tick to provide clinical expertise and consultancy or second opinions regards. Truly the professionals professional, I appreciate your interest here on my page as a Psychiatric Specialist and International Policy Advisor in these areas of mental health that are of a level of nuance, that usually only comes with personal experience and background familiarity and life skills to compliment the clinical study in all its depth and detail coming with such issues you are requiring assistance with.

I am a Licensed Mental Health Clinician, Executive Therapist, CEO, Psych and Patient Rights Advocate, Volunteer, and Nominated Government and International/Global Level Educator in the most sensitive aspects of human care quality.

I am very tender towards those in need, and understanding towards all desiring/requiring my level of expertise. I strive for Clinical Excellence in every moment with you, and love to receive feedback where I can make any improvements.

If you’re in my clinical or colleague based support services, you can count on that, in my care,
You and I have excellence in outcomes that enrich your life, needs, desires, and requirements for the best. I’m easy to speak to, and can be trusted in matters you would question a human could be so delicate yet honest in. Your ultimate satisfaction in recieving services of my caliber is of utmost importance, and clear, transparent communication is encouraged and cherished in our time together. My education results have been of Distinct Clinical and Personal heights, and I relate to all ages, all stages.

Even still, I continue to learn on a daily basis from the difficulties, and the blessings that come with life. I have personal experience with mental distress, increasing my empathy to levels that are so intense, that it’s difficult to encapsulate.

I’m an International Clinician with the APA (American Psych Association)
I collaborate with Interpol and brief emergency workers before dispatch, with an individuals current mental health/psychiatric states, so they can understand a person much better and with increased gentleness-with my updated and compassion based information a key part of their way in handling psychiatric escalation.

If one is in requirement of a welfare check for any reason, I ensure efficient and minimal disturbance is made and local responders handle each case with the sensitivity and respect they need in such times where I cannot travel to their location but need to establish safety.

I let people ask questions about me and recovery in an open fashion, and I openly answer with utmost honesty. It helps all whom hear, grow their hope high and expect excellence in my care.
I either speak the honest truth, or I don’t speak- I’d rather communicate a helpful hand and hope for long term recovery and partnership to delight you. My honesty is helpful for many, who appreciate the authenticity!

I will put the heading to each point in all caps- I’m not yelling, don’t worry! I’m distinguishing between points.


I use a wide range and multidimensional approach to Treatment including, (but not limited to:

-Relational Therapy
-Positive Psychology,
-Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, -Transactional Analysis,
-Motivational Interviewing,
-Solution Focused Therapy,
-Existential Therapy,
-Narrative Therapy,
-Schema Therapy,
-Dialectical Behavioural Therapy.
-Art Therapy,
-Scent Therapy,
-Music Therapy.

Would you like a dedicated and loyal professional to help you navigate life in the short, medium or longer term? If so, let’s talk.

I offer services that will enhance your current existence, as well as help clarify, understand, and deal with the people, situations around us and personal limitations or emotional/behavioural responses that keep many of us humans frustrated and stuck, perpetuating the cycle of distress-

I’m offering you my sincerity in adopting more skilled and effective ways at dealing with what life has been keeping you in that feeling of being trapped and hopeless with.

Our time together provides a safe place, to unravel the turmoil within you, with my help and understanding-like you’ve never been understood before. A big part of how I practice and specialise as an Executive Relational Therapist, is that a lot of healing and building of skills and refinement of how you perceive and deal with life is actually done between you and me. Our relationship is where so much healing is done, and can then be taken into other situations when you’re ready. It is especially helpful for those who are deeply traumatised, or those whom find trust difficult- perhaps impossible, after all you have been through.

As a Therapist, who is a professional in the science and artistic mental and emotional depths of psychology science and metacognition, I listen sensitively, and respond gently, without you feeling inferior or small-

We are both equals after all...and- I learn just as much from you, as you do me! I will help you discover healthy ways of thinking, feeling and dealing with all concerns you bring to our healing relationship. All I ask, is that we work as a team. If you’re feeling distressed in life, I’m the space you’ve been looking for to heal and find refuge and hope in.


I believe Therapy is an essential need for everyone and having experienced very, very difficult incidents at an early age in life which lasted far into my teenage years without an escape or refuge of safety myself, I appreciated it's importance even more. While I always had underlying interest in human behaviour and emotions, which stem from Psychology, Anatomy, Social Sciences, Environmental Science Philosophy, Chemistry, Medicine, Psychopharmacology, Chemistry, Interpersonal Studies, and Analysis of such in general (combined with my own Traumatic experiences and struggles) was what motivated me to choose to become a Therapist. I turn my own past pains into power, and sufferings into strengths for the benefit of others in this life, and will do so for as long as I live. This being said, I am thankful that while I NOT ONLY have the “book smarts”, I have the “ experience smarts” too, which help me and you to connect on a much, much deeper level than you would typically, with a standard Therapist. Some things you simply must go through, in order to understand them to their fullest capacity.

“If the saying you wouldn’t get it, until you get it” resonates with you, I encourage you to reach out and see how you feel for a free introductory session- I’ve had Therapy myself as a young one, and I too relate closely to that statement, as some things in life, simply require experience to relate to. Some things, they simply don't teach in books, and never do. You must experience them in order to truly understand them, and that's a silver lining I can say I have taken from having a hard time in life. I couldn't imagine doing anything else, it just has to be therapeutic for others, and my life makes sense with the pain required to help people find purpose and progress for themselves. You will never feel any judgement- only unconditional acceptance, desire to understand, and connect to enhance your quality of living higher than it is at this very moment.

Isn’t it odd...even as children- we are taught in school, how to deal with physical injuries and pain…yet,

when it comes to emotional injuries and pain, even adults are at a crossroads and dismiss misery as if it never existed- and we know denial only makes that pain worse, and yet, due to our upbringing and a increasingly aloof society in which we inhabit...simply prefer to just dismiss those pains- rather than give them the same attention as physical pain! I felt the need to look for help myself in my early teen years, and that was when I discovered that we do have professionals who can help us overcome emotional pain and struggles-

And that this form of pain (emotional pain) is as real…as physical pain! How relieving this was, that others (besides me) too- acknowledged this very real truth.

So let’s rediscover your peace and restore your wellbeing to the highest level it can be restored-

I’m deeply passionate for all whom seek a supportive, affirming, validating, and authentic human connection with someone whom they may have never spoken to before, and feel the need to reach out to, for that courage is of a magnitude, it could hardly be captured in words.

So are you ready to be understood in a new depth that you thought were only possible while daydreaming?
Because it’s not a daydream, once you message in-

It becomes a deeply comforting reality. I’m highly adaptable to all personalities, and enjoy the sacredness of relating and restoring back to full capacity, all whom enquires here, lives.

With clear communication and a gentle, understanding and alternative approach to what is troubling you,

I invite you to your sacred space with me. No regrets, free initial session is of no risk-

And everything to gain.

It’s time to experience RecoverLife for yourself now, and spend not a moment longer in misery. We work together, you are never alone.

Hope Restored and New Skills, whatever you’re desiring, we get there together as a team.

“It’s not just an occupation to me. It’s a lifestyle. It’s deeply personal.”

"If you have chronic illness or disease, she is an absolutely God send. I was going mad with how I wasn’t coping. She messages me every day, like a personal encourager and motivator- even on the days I want to lay on the bed in fetal
position and cry, and die, and ask the world why- to get the things I need done in a day, done with minimal discomfort and genuine support! She is a truly wonderful woman with a heart of gold- and she understands, too. She doesn’t just intellectually get it. She gets it through her life experience, too.
Thank you, my Joy of Joys!!!

"Thank you Therapist Joy, you are giving my life BACK! It had slipped away, but- with your amazingness as a Licensed Mental Health Clinician, you grabbed it and pulled it back. I honestly am speechless, and forever grateful. Also, you're a person of utmost integrity, honesty, work ethic and moral compass. You're a role model for society. An angel. I wish I had the words to express my gratitude more, but I recommend you to everyone I know. Thank you for pulling me out of the darkness and showing me that hope and wellness DOES and CAN exist-for me! Exceptional Therapist! :D"

"A.J is at the top of her field. She knows exactly what she's doing, and why. We have continued Therapy off this platform too as there were even deeper issues to address, though the whole process with Therapist Joy has been exceptional. There will be ups and downs, like in anything we do in life. She's currently in hospital trying her best to still help people as I write this, which just goes to show her dedication even more. She doesn't have to, yet she does. I've been to SO many Therapists-and have finally found "The One" with Therapist Joy. :D
BRILLIANT, FANTASTIC, and deserves SOOO much more than she is paid. I know she charges very little as she wants treatment to be accessible to all, but Therapist A.J- please know, that you are worth more than what clients are willing to pay. And I CAN SEE your worth. You are an asset to the field, and wouldn't be surprised if you became famous one day. You're talented, beautiful, and everything I've ever wanted and needed in a Therapist. Thank You, Thank You, THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!
