Jessica Joy is an actress/healer/unicorn/femme/scorpio who loves exploring the overlaps between the performing arts and healing arts. She’s currently a Psychology/Counseling Graduate Student, a certified Usui Reiki Practitioner, and a certified Life Coach with Life Purpose Institute.
Jessica’s community and the community she serves tends to be queer, artistic, highly sensitive, trauma surviving, and intersectionally (race/ gender/ nationality/ sexuality/ class/ ability/ neuro/) diverse. Processes of Empathy and Connection (with self and others) are her passion. Her practice and her heart are centered in Social Justice.
Ms. Joy hostessed Salon Empathique for several years in NYC and Portland – a fabulous, free, and collaborative monthly personal storytelling salon where Everyone was Invited.
Right now she’s in the fundraising process with Equi Institute at the Q Center to create a Mental Health Counseling Internship Program offering much needed super-low sliding scale Mental Health Care for our community. This will include Therapy through Personal Storytelling groups, a new iteration of Salon Empathique.
Jessica looks forward to being with you Weirdos, Magical Forest Creatures, and other Kindreds! Email and website-in-process if you’d like to get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org and JessicaJoy.space
