Professional statement

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.

Message to clients

I believe that the baseline of any healthy therapeutic relationship is mutual respect and open communication. Sometimes people come to therapy not really knowing what they need; they just know that they want to feel better. Although my passion lies in utilizing family systems theory, I adapt the session focus to meet the client's needs at that moment. This can be a safe space to vent without consequence or to receive feedback without judgment. It can also be structured and process-oriented. There is honestly no right way to do therapy, but I will ask you to do work and challenge your thoughts, emotions and vulnerabilities in order to feel better. I named my practice Joyful Journey Counseling Services because I believe that a therapist really is a guide on a person's journey in life; it is also a moderately clever use of my first name. I do hope that whomever you choose to be your guide, you find happiness and satisfaction on your journey.
