Dr. Joy PiccolinoSuccess, happiness and more satisfying relationships are the goals of therapy. As an experienced, compassionate psychologist, I offer strategies to meet those goals. At best, clients leave therapy feeling empowered and more truly themselves.

I specialize in individual therapy with adult and older adolescent 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.
