About me

My Private Practice office is in my church. What can I say. I am involved in the American Association of Christian Counselors. I am open to using faith-based counnseling, on request. In cases, where that's what the client wants, I use scripture as a basis for some direction. I still use a didactic and solution-focused model, with lots of CBT. I pray with my clients when they are cofortable with that. And I pray for my clients, whether they like it or not. Each one is individual, and I stive to meet them where they are, and accompany them on their journey.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Joyce A. Griffin. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Faithful Counseling might be different.

Dr. Griffin is a great match for me and I feel blessed that she "chose" me. I appreciate her experience, compassion, insight and penetrating questions. I highly value her Christian perspective and her prayers. I feel I have steadily moved toward my goals. God is not done with me yet - even in my "senior" years there is still room for progress.
