Jessica Joy is a Counseling/ Psychology Graduate Student who loves exploring the overlaps between the performing arts and healing arts, with 15+ years of experience facilitating free theatre workshops, events, and storytelling circles for folks in New York City and Portland. Jessica’s community and the community she serves tends to be queer, creative, highly sensitive, trauma surviving, and intersectionally (race/ gender/ nationality/ sexuality/ class/ ability/ neuro/) diverse. Processes of Empathy and Connection (with self and others) are her passion. Her practice and her heart are centered in Social Justice.
Mx. Joy is collaborating with Dr. Angela Carter and Counseling Supervisor Bethprana Novi to inaugurate Equi’s first year of their Mental Health Counseling Internship Program. She is providing trauma-informed, client-centered, culturally-affirming therapy for individuals, couples and other relationship constellations, families, and groups including an upcoming Therapeutic Personal Storytelling Group. Her practice will draw from a number of psychotherapy modalities in collaboration with each client including Rogerian, Narrative, Expressive Arts, Somatic, Solution-Focused, Depth Psychology, and DBT. Treatment plans will be tailored to suit clients’ unique needs and goals.
