• Emotional, Spiritual & Relational Well-being

    RESOURCES FOR FINDING JOY IN EVERY AREA OF LIFE

    (For my psychology practice and blog,

    please visit drjoypsych.com!)

    Greetings!  My mission is to encourage, nurture, and support clients as they learn to experience JOY — FULFILLMENT, INNER PEACE, and SATISFYING RELATIONSHIPS.     

    As a psychologist I have always been more interested in mental health than in mental illness.  At the same time, I believe that the answers to TRUE WELLNESS can only be found by using an approach that integrates the entire realm of human experience — intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual.  In 2004, after a 40-year quest, I made a stunning discovery … an ancient blueprint for vibrant mental health as valid today as it was 2000 years ago!  Since that time I have shared this amazing message in two books:  DISCOVER JOY:  Well-being God’s Way, and DISCOVER JOY IN YOUR MARRIAGE:  Living the Beatitudes.

    BOOKS:  EMOTIONAL HEALTH & MARRIAGE!

    (*VIBRANT MENTAL HEALTH is my term for true emotional and spiritual wellness.  [See Psalm 34:5, 2 Corinthians 3:18, Exodus 34:29, Acts 6:15].  Experiencing this well-being involves an inner experience and outward expression of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control [Galatians 5:22-23])
