HInsdale Counselor - About Me - Hinsdale, IL
About Joy Davy, M.S., L.C.P.C., N.C.C.

I have two masters degrees.  The first is in English, from Dominican University in River Forest, Illinois.  The second is in Counseling, from National-Louis University in Lisle, Illinois.  I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and a National Certified Counselor. 

Life experiences:

Before going into private practice as a therapist, I worked at a shelter for survivors of domestic violence, at the county health department with at-risk youth, in community counseling agencies, and in public schools.  I have also taught college, worked as an artist on commission, written a book,  and have experience as a birth doula.  In short, I bring a lot of varied life experience to my counseling work.

I am multicultural, offering counseling in Spanish, French, and English.

Therapeutic approach:

My therapy style is supportive and collaborative. Compassionate honesty is the characteristic I most value both personally and professionally.    I use mindfulness approaches and guided imagery with clients who find these beneficial.


Causes near and dear to my heart include:  animal rescue, Attachment Parenting International, La Leche League International, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, mindfulness and natural, holistic health.
