Insight Counseling Services

Michael Joy, MA, LPC

Thank you for viewing my biography and

considering me to be your therapist! I try to

embody everything that one may look for

in a therapist, whether it is someone who is

trustworthy, prepared, or able to meet their clients

where they are at. Before establishing a plan for

services with clients, I believe that proving that I

can be somebody who they can feel comfortable

with is the first priority. 

I have been practicing for a few years in settings

that include private practice and the juvenile justice

system. I have worked with adults, adolescents, and kids from all walks of life. My experience includes

treating clients that deal with concerns such as anxiety, OCD, depression, anger, trauma, ADHD, oppositional defiant disorder, autism, other developmental disabilities, adjustment issues, relationship issues, issues involving suicide and/or self harm, and more. My methods used in therapy are individualized, which means that they will be specifically centered around your needs and goals. I have experience using methods such as cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused behavioral therapy, insight oriented therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and more. Therapy needs to work for people in order for them to continue with it, and I have been able to make it work for dozens of people that I have previously treated. 

So whether you have attended therapy before, or you are thinking about attending for the first time, look no further. I look forward to speaking with you!!  Click here for more information.
