About Healing Relationships

Joy Wagner

LMFT, MS Marriage and Family Counseling, BS Psychology

Regardless of one’s life stage or the challenges they face, therapy holds the potential for profound healing and growth. It is my privilege to accompany individuals, couples, and families on their journeys toward greater fulfillment and resilience With an MS in Marriage and Family Therapy from Capella University in Minneapolis, MN, and a BS in Psychology from the same institution, I have dedicated myself to empowering individuals, couples, and families on their journey towards healing and self-discovery.

Recognizing the inherent diversity of human experiences, I approach therapy with a flexible mindset, tailoring my methods to suit the unique needs of each client. My professional journey has equipped me with the expertise to address a spectrum of challenges, from relational issues and parenting dilemmas to mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder.

In my practice, I specialize in guiding clients through relationship issues that evoke feelings of disconnection, loneliness, anger, and powerlessness. I prioritize creating a safe and nurturing space where individuals can feel truly seen and heard. Grounded in a nonjudgmental stance, I collaborate with clients to harness their inherent strengths, guiding them towards newfound clarity and empowerment.

I firmly believe that therapy is a deeply personal endeavor, and finding the right fit is paramount to success. To this end, I encourage prospective clients to schedule a complimentary introductory session, allowing us to discern together if my approach aligns with their needs and goals.

I’m a Marriage and Family Therapist in training working under the supervision of Joy Wagner and specializing in trauma-informed care, dedicated to helping individuals and families navigate life’s challenges. I came into this endeavor because I myself had experienced trauma in my life and walked the dark path through recovery and rebuilding my personal life. I now want to take that experience guided by professional training to assist you in your own recovery process. 

With a collaborative approach, I tailor therapy to address a range of issues, from trauma and relationship

difficulties to personal growth and self-discovery. 

By integrating trauma-informed principles, I provide a supportive environment where clients can explore their experiences and develop coping skills for resilience. Whether you’re facing trauma, relationship struggles, or other life stressors, I’m here to support you on your journey towards healing and empowerment.

My journey to becoming a therapist began with my own experiences in therapy. I faced life events that left me feeling alone, depressed, and worthless. Through my personal work in

therapy, I discovered a profound desire to help others overcome similar struggles. My life experiences have equipped me with the ability to form strong connections and offer genuine empathy to those I work with.

In my practice, I focus on transforming negative outlooks into a positive sense of self-worth and concept. I understand that feeling isolated can be overwhelming, but it’s important to remember

that you are not alone, even if your mind tells you otherwise. Change begins with examining your current life situation, reflecting on how you arrived there, and understanding why you remain at that place. Collaboratively, we can create a goal-focused plan that envisions where you want to be, adopting a positive perspective while reframing thought processes, behaviors, and emotions to achieve your goals.

I provide guidance and act as a resource throughout this transformative process, helping you navigate your journey towards a healthier, more fulfilling life.

My educational background includes a BS in Psychology and Criminal Justice and a MS in Counseling from Upper Iowa University in Fayette, IA. I chose my career path as a Licensed Professional Counselor because I simply wanted to help others feel better. To assist in that process has been humbling and inspiring; watching others grow has been very rewarding. This process is not easy and I understand the trust and effort involved in counseling, because of this I work in a collaborative process with my clients and utilize different evidenced-based theories to guide us through the journey. I have experience working with adults, children, and adolescents for various mental health and relational issues, some examples include, but are not limited to: anxiety, depression, feelings of worthlessness, low self-esteem, and parenting.

If you feel you resonated with any of my words, please contact us to set up a consultation to see if I would be a good match to help you reach your goals.
