Professional statement

Joy Radish is a psychotherapist and drama therapist based in Brooklyn, NY. Using a holistic approach, Joy supports clients who are navigating anxiety, depression, stuckness, spiritual crises, trauma, and healing from difficult childhoods. As a seasoned yoga and meditation teacher, Joy considers the connection between mind, body, spirit, relationships, and creativity as vital to overall health and wellness.

Joy frequently works with clients who are in recovery from trauma, who feel disconnected from their bodies, who have experienced core relational wounds, and who seek to feel more authentic, purposeful, creative and whole. As a drama therapist, she pays close attention to all of the stories clients bring into the room, listening for content, as well as how they tell their stories, noticing the roles, symbols, archetypal themes, and metaphors that emerge through the work.

Joy also brings in tools that come from the yoga tradition, including breathwork, somatic meditation, traditional visualization practices, principles from yoga philosophy, and ayurvedic psychology. With this combination of verbal psychotherapy, embodied practices, and creative exercises clients can begin to unpack thoughts and feelings that the conscious mind cannot access by itself, and rewrite their life narrative from one of pain to one that is empowered.

Joy believes everyone deserves the chance to heal and grow. She helps her clients care for the parts that need understanding and acceptance so they may experience more freedom. She received her MA from NYU Steinhardt and her BA from Sarah Lawrence College, and is excited to welcome new clients for secure teletherapy sessions.


Message to clients

All people deserve to live a life that is fulfilling, empowered, and free. Often, due to the trauma of daily living and greater challenges we are cut-off from our own source of wisdom and feel stymied and stuck. In a day and age that values product over process, mind over body, and quick-fix techniques more than in-depth healing, we leave a lot of our pain—and a lot of our story unexplored. My approach to psychotherapy is appropriate for anyone and everyone seeking better to understand themselves, transform their choices, and create life-shifts no matter how big or small.
