Joyce Felix Builes


15 years of experience
Solution oriented

Hi, I’m Joyce. Are you finding yourself struggling in life and need someone to talk to? Do you have trouble being kind to yourself or saying no to others? You have come to the right place! I have helped people who are struggling with life transitions, grief & loss, divorce, relationship challenges, anxiety, depression, trauma, caregiver stress and burnout, guilt, self-esteem issues, parenting stressors, family problems, and cultural challenges. In therapy, we will work together on your struggles, while I help guide and support you in an emotionally safe way without judgement.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

My clients can expect to walk away from sessions feeling heard and being able to speak freely about their feelings and vulnerabilities in a safe and non-judgmental space.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I provide individual therapy to adults (18 and over). I use a variety of therapy methods and tools, using a person-centered approach. The choice of therapy methods is based on an assessment of your individual needs and goals. This includes, but is not limited to, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Psychodynamic Therapy. I also work off an empowerment model, use active listening, and provide non-judgmental support. The therapy process will also likely include therapeutic assignments outside of therapy sessions, to help you get closer to your treatment goals.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I feel like my biggest strengths as a therapist are traits that cannot just be taught in a classroom. My innate strengths and characteristics are my genuine love for helping others, my calm and soft demeanor which can be helpful for those who suffer from anxiety, and my authenticity as both a human being and professional.
