Dr. Joy Piccolino

We all have times when we feel stuck or the stresses in our lives become overwhelming, and we need encouragement to move forward and thrive. I believe that together, you and I can navigate through the hard times and get through the pain, to get you back to a place of feeling happy, healthy, and satisfied in your relationships.

If you are ready to take the next step, I am here to help. I specialize in individual therapy with adult clients, and most often assist clients with overcoming anxiety, trauma, depression, relationship problems, perfectionism, poor boundaries, and substance abuse/codependency issues.

Good therapy is collaborative and client-centered; my expertise is in helping you find your own inner resources to change. With training in many different approaches to treatment, I tailor the treatment plan to your specific strengths and struggles. Helping people clarify and understand their problems and how they want to change is one of my key strengths – one that helps therapy be more effective. My calm, rational and practical style is particularly helpful for anxious clients.

On this site you can get a feel for how I “do” therapy. You can also learn how to set up your first appointment, get some questions answered in the FAQ section, learn about how I use canine-assisted therapy, and view links to a variety of resources.

My office is conveniently located near Burnsville Parkway and 35W in Burnsville. I serve the Twin Cities metro area including nearby Eagan, Apple Valley, Savage, Lakeville, and Bloomington.
