Joy DiCosimo Addeo is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker passionate about helping people improve their quality of life. Her solo practice, Joyful Journey Counseling Services, is based online in New Jersey and Delaware, and specializes in individual, couples and family therapy.
Joy's approach is rooted in family systems theory, which views an individual as a part of a larger relationship system; this system can consist of a family, a marriage, a partnership, friendships, or work relationships. The therapeutic work focuses on adjusting dysfunctional patterns within the system in order to improve communication, function, and the overall quality of the relationship. Even when applied to an individual, these concepts can help that person feel freer to make physical and emotional moves in their life.
Regardless of the reason bringing an individual, couple or family to therapy, Joy is committed to the practice of making sure her clients feel valued, understood and validated.
