My passion is to help you in your wildly busy life to mindfully prioritize and organize your life so you have capacity to spend time with your loved ones; resilience to navigate through life’s changes and stressors; and to create space for your personal interests.

Are you feeling overwhelmed with life’s demands?

At work, you’re constantly bombarded with meetings, emails, screens, instant messaging, phone calls… something is always being demanded of you.

The result is overwhelm, anxiety, and stress.

When there is very little or no downtime at work, it impacts your home life as well.  This costs you your health, quality time with loved ones, and capacity to spend time doing things you love.  

 This type of living is not remotely mindful of the human being and its nervous system.


Live with more flow and less chaos

How would it be to feel empowered and in harmony with the demands of your life?  Create the life you want while honoring the human being you are.  Schedule a free consultation with me to start exploring this possibility.

I’ll help you:

  • Prioritize and organize your life

Success Stories

A lot of the issues I got stuck with were things in my own head, Joy helped me learn that I could get unstuck by addressing both my mental and physical dimensions. I have been able to move forward from the problem I was experiencing then but I’m still able to check in with her every so often and she encourages on the progress that I have made…


Joy has gone through her own life experiences but is a very centered and stable person so she is a big inspiration for me. Joy is a really gifted and empathetic listener who has many practices to share with her clients. I found these practices to be quite supportive and helpful during my transition to move and to change jobs. She has the natural ability to think of every person holistically – addressing the head, heart, body, – which I feel is missing from other coaches that I have met. I would highly recommend her for anyone’s coaching needs.
Leslie L, consultant for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Seattle.

Joy has a very peaceful, calming manner and approach.  She would walk me through getting unstuck and help me feel more calm, relaxed and less self critical. Joy helped me feel more positive about myself and my issues and offered me useful techniques for navigating my life changes…


When we talked about my issues and anxieties around them, she offered simple techniques to deal with them that I could understand and practice.  Some of the greatest lessons I gained through my coaching journey with Joy were to be more kind to myself, that I need to look for all the things/people that I have in my life to be thankful for and that I need to pay more attention to being present.  Joy’s sessions were stimulating, worthwhile and enlightening.

As recipient of the M. Juanita Guess Award as Community Liaison of the Year, Joy exemplifies the best in a Community Liaison Office Coordinator. In particular, her superb handling of our evacuation in which she kept our evacuated Embassy community together, despite enormous odds, was terrific…


She demonstrated extraordinary patience in coaching people, listening to their concerns, resourcefulness in seeking answers to her clients’ concerns proactive ability to head off problems before they festered; great skill in maneuvering around bureaucratic roadblocks and networking through the unfamiliar territory of the State Department; and courage in setting and then realizing goals, even when they seemed unattainable. Her excellent instincts and admirable tact have repeatedly allowed her to take the pulse of the community and to alert me to small problems that could be fixed before they turned into crises. Joy’s enthusiasm motivates everyone with whom she comes in contact. I continue to receive weekly testimonials from grateful evacuees and their family members about the extent to which their ability to withstand the months of separation was due largely to Joy’s great efforts.

Meet Joy

I truly believe that if we slow down, relax and organize our lives more simply, we become happier and healthier human beings.

For over a decade I supported high level executives to get organized, and I quickly noticed they were overwhelmed by the demands of work and life which not only did that make it difficult to help them, it also impacted my quality of life.  I found myself restless and reacting from an anxious and fearful state to demands that were at times not actually emergencies, but felt like it.  I went to work feeling heavy. The days seemed long and exhausting. My nights were unsettled and restless. The toll on my emotional health was heavy.

And, although the salary and benefits were wonderful, it didn’t justify what I was ultimately feeling and how I was responding to others around me. I realized this way of being was costing my health, my capacity to relax, my ability to be kinder to people around me and interfering with the things that I love.

My path became clear to help busy working professionals create a more sustainable life system: a way of working and living more in flow with nature and more resonant with one’s values.

The following poem has inspired me deeply.

The Rat Race

“I don’t want to join the rat race.
Not be enslaved by machines,
bureaucracies, boredom, ugliness.
I don’t want to be a moron, robot, commuter.
I don’t want to become a fragment of a person.
I want to do my own thing.
I want to live (relatively simply).
I want to deal with people, not with masks.
People matter. Nature matters.
Beauty matters. Wholeness matters.
I want to be able to care.”

~ E. F. Schumacher
