Joy Ciskowski, LPC
“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” -CS Lewis.
Hello! My name is Joy and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor here in Missouri. As I read the above quote, I can’t help but know it’s true. There isn’t a situation, hurt, or human that goes beyond the reach of true healing, and it’s never too late to begin writing that chapter of your story. As we allow ourselves to face the pain, we begin to step into our power and the ability to transform.
As a therapist, I deeply value authenticity in relationship and allowing others to show up exactly as they are. I’m passionate about helping others to reconnect to our authentic power through the mind-body connection, relationship and connection with others, and play. My favorite ways support that journey is through Drama Therapy and other embodied action-methods, and Brainspotting. I am currently working towards becoming a Registered Drama Therapist as well as pursuing my certification in Brainspotting!
One of my greatest passions is working with those who are currently struggling with eating disorders. I have pursued experience working in ED focused research as well as working as a therapist at a local eating disorder treatment center. In addition to eating disorder, I am passionate about supporting those struggling with self-harm, personality disorder, body image concerns, suicidal ideation, trauma, PTSD, anger issues, social anxiety, and low self-esteem.
Please reach out today to schedule your free virtual consultation. I look forward to hearing from you.
