About Me

Hi! Welcome to BetterHelp!

It can be lonely and frustrating to have dreams and aspiration that seem to be outside our reach. Oftentimes, one of the most difficult things to acknowledge is the need for help. I understand stretching beyond our comfort zone and fears takes real courage, hope, self-determination and resilience. I am delighted that you have chosen to take this courageous step and excited to begin our journey together. So, congratulations on taking the first step to healing and personal wellness.

I would like to introduce myself. My name is Joy Harris. I have nearly 15 years of experience helping clients successfully navigate through various life challenges. I carry a deep Christian conviction to help others flourish and grow. My passion is to come alone side of you to help you navigate through the unsettled waters of life assisting you in conquering the internal/external, past or present stressors/triggers in your life by getting to the root of the matter. Wow, that was a mouthful. In a nutshell, I sincerely want to see people become victorious in EVERY area of their lives. In your words, “productive and worthwhile” in every area of your life. We do this one layer at a time.

"We had several coaching sessions and each meeting helped to break strongholds that all originated from my childhood. I had so many “aha”moments while conversing with Joy. I was a hot mess before talking to Joy. Because of her coaching, my walk with Christ is as strong as ever. I love my job. I am one of a hand full of female football coaches across the nation. I have raised remarkable children. I have an amazing marriage, and my health and wellness business is thriving and growing during a pandemic. I truly believe I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I highly recommend hiring Joy Harris to coach you. God uses her to speak directly to you. " ~Terri

Therapy is a process that allows you the freedom and privacy to discuss issues that are often painful or difficult to discuss with family and/or friends as you stated in your initial message. With that said, you might or might not have been to a therapist before. Please understand that initially you may feel a little nervous and have apprehensions. That is a normal response to starting any new journey. Together we will work through any difficulties and insights gained during the therapy process. Remember, I am here to support you along the way.

I believe God has given us the capacity to be great in their own right; all we need is someone who cares and helps foster hope. My focus will be on providing you the tools and empowerment you need to meet your needs and accomplish your goals. I am also hopeful that in the process of our work together, you can begin to feel more settled within yourself and within your relationships with no judgment.

It is indeed a pleasure to have the opportunity to come along side of you during this season of your life and be the hands and feet of Christ. I look forward to our first power session.
Peace and Hope,
Joy
P.S. Between now and our first session questions may arise please write them down to discuss when we meet.

Written by G.R. on Apr 22, 2021 after counseling with Joy for 4 months

Joy Harris is a wonderful counsellor. She doesn't push one particular way of communication as I prefer to type. Joy is calm and respectful with what I communicate and has always helped me think beyond the problem I present. I would recommend Joy if you are looking for a counsellor who is gentle, kind, respectful and who doesn't push her own agenda but helps you where you're at.
