Joy Evans, MSW (she/her) combines trauma-healing modalities with sound and forest therapy to lead people out of the perpetual stress response, to reconnect with the details of the senses and return to clarity, centered self, and calm.
Joy has a deep commitment to restorative practices. At the University of California, Berkeley, she led a team that developed the healing services, crisis response, and advocacy for students, staff and faculty impacted by sexual violence/harassment, intimate partner violence, and stalking. Inspired to make healing accessible to survivors of trauma and vicarious trauma, she began her private practice.
She holds a Master of Social Work from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and self-designed her major in Cross-Cultural Perspectives on Gender at Vanderbilt University. She completed The Art of Sound Healing Level II certification through the Seattle Sound Temple, is a certified forest therapy guide through the Association of Nature & Forest Therapy, and in her third year of study with the School of Celtic Consciousness.
Joy welcomes folks from all backgrounds, especially LGBTQ+ and BIPOC to her in-person and virtual events. Connect with Joy at https://joyevansmsw.com
