Personal

Joyce grew up in a Christian family, but for many years ran from God. In her twenties she became a Christian and has grown tremendously in her faith since that time. She is active in her church and enjoys going on mission trips. Joyce is married with two daughters and two step-daughters, and is a proud grandmother of five. She enjoys travel, hiking, photography, reading, and spending time with family and friends.

Vision

Joyce believes she was called and gifted by God to minister in counseling to the hurting. It is her goal to create a safe, welcoming atmosphere in which individuals can be heard and understood as they achieve greater healing and peace. Joyce has had tremendous healing in her own life and desires to encourage others on their path to greater wholeness.
