Welcome to Optimum Joy. When you need help the most, we are committed to supporting you through providing professional counseling services. We offer sessions for individuals, couples and families. It is a dedication of ours to help people from diverse backgrounds pursue self-awareness, personal development, and healthy, fulfilling relationships. Sometimes people feel stuck or don’t know how to move towards their dreams. Optimum Joy helps increase understanding of your personal challenges- so you can know and pursue your options for change! 

Each therapist on staff has specific specializations and experience in areas including: anxiety & depression, women’s and men’s unique issues, grief, abuse & trauma recovery, eating disorders, marriage and family therapy, substance misuse, and childhood trauma. When you call, our intake personnel listens and matches you with the therapist on staff most capable of meeting your unique needs.

Optimum Joy also offer counseling services combining quality care with faith sensitivity. Each therapist has experience and training in integrating Christian worldview into your care at the level you need. While we are committed to making Christian integration services available, we partner with clients from any background and walk of life. Bottom line: we know you are invested in your healing process, and we are glad to partner with you in a professional and culturally sensitive way.
