The process of the ThriveSteer Planner was first executed in the counseling environment.  Joyce continues that work in Boulder, CO, as a marriage and family therapist-C. 

Joyce helps clients regain vision for their lives through a holistic approach considering their physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and relational well-being. Her approach has been described by clients and co-therapists as compassionate as well as practical. She believes that when people are able to live out of their strengths, they will experience a greater sense of purpose in life and in their relationships. Joyce’s specialties are sexual issues and relational dynamics, life and career coaching, and trauma/grief. She has helped those suffering from sexual addictions, poor body image, anxiety, depression, anger, and attachment issues.

Joyce is a trained facilitator of Prepare-Enrich and Couples' Communication, programs to help enrich couples' relationships. She has specific insight and training in working with marital and family dynamics, PTSD, grief/loss, multicultural issues, sex therapy, and organizational and career dynamics.

Joyce has provided group therapy for veterans, adolescents, and couples and has been a featured guest speaker to groups on various topics including grief, trauma, sexual wholeness, applying strengths in a career, and leadership development. Additionally, she has provided debriefing for a team of therapists who handled a mass shooting. 

Through all of these circumstances, Joyce is passionate about seeing people experience healing and restoration and empowering them to live daily as their best selves.
