Joy Chow, APCC
Welcome! I am an associate clinical counselor working in the mental health field since 2017. Prior to that, I had a decade-long career as a sign language interpreter with my hands in the K-12, college, VRS, and medical settings. It is my privilege to partner with Deaf, hard-of-hearing, and hearing clients in processing the effects of intergenerational trauma, vicarious trauma, domestic and sexual violence, language deprivation, depression, anxiety, life transitions, and recent diagnoses.
My training includes working in a psychiatric acute and intensive care unit supporting patients experiencing severe depression, anxiety, psychosis, and dual diagnosis. In addition to patient care, I have provided support and psychoeducation to their loved ones also navigating through these life changes. More recently, I provide trauma therapy support to survivors of domestic and sexual violence. I am further trained in neurofeedback and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) for those seeking alternatives to talk therapy.
My passion is reconnecting the self to mind and body, rediscovering strength, and building on it. I use multiple modalities integral to each client’s path to whole-person care and will meet you where you are. I look forward to partnering with you on your journey to wellness.
Strengths-based and body-oriented therapies such as relaxation techniques, mindfulness, neurofeedback, and EMDR.
