Joy Close


27 years of experience

Hello there, my name is Joy. I think it is wonderful that you have decided to try therapy. Deciding to come to therapy is a big decision and takes courage. My passion is for individual psychotherapy. People come to work with me on issues such as depression, anxiety, grief/loss, life transitions and relationship concerns. I have expertise in each of these problems and feel that it is an honor to be invited to accompany my patients on this part of their journey. I am passionate about social justice, my work and making the world a better place. I am an anti-racist, anti-sexist, and LGBTQIA+ affirming clinician.

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

During our first session we will see if it is a good fit. You should feel safe and able to speak your mind and ask any questions about me and the process. This is our time to get to know it other and gauge whether treatment with me might be helpful to you.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I offer a range of evidence-based treatments, from brief therapy for specific issues to longer-term psychotherapy for patients seeking insight and clarity into their lives and sense of self. I offer traditional psychotherapy as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, Problem Solving and Mindfulness.

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

I have expertise in grief, loss, transitions and adjustment to medical conditions.
