Joy received her Master of Science Degree in Communicative Disorders from Eastern New Mexico University and her Bachelor of Arts in Communicative Disorders from California State University, Long Beach (Go Beach!). During her graduate studies, she had the pleasure of working with adults and children in multiple settings, including a rehabilitation hospital, a skilled nursing facility, a private school, and two private practices. Upon graduating with her Master’s, she began her Clinical Fellowship doing in-home early intervention language therapy, followed by pediatric speech and language therapy at a local school district.
Joy has had the privilege of working with children and adults from a wide range of backgrounds and etiologies. She has worked with individuals with Autism, Down syndrome, intellectual disabilities, language disorders, articulation and phonological disorders, stuttering, pragmatic disorders, aphasia, swallowing and feeding disorders, and verbal apraxia as well as adults with acquired brain injuries such as stroke and TBI. Joy has participated in adult group therapy for stroke survivors at Carson Stroke Center and Speech and Language Development Center. She has also led pediatric and young adult social groups at Los Angeles Speech and Language Center to teach valuable social skills and language skills to help them become more independent in social situations. While Joy enjoys all therapy areas, she particularly enjoys working on early intervention, Autism, language disorders, aphasia, and apraxia.
Joy is passionate about the field of Speech-Language Pathology. Her goal with each client is to individualize therapy to meet their needs to ensure their well-being is the number one priority.
