More about me

Licensing: LPC, NCC, MVBH
Years in Practice: 28
State: CA

All of us, at some point, encounter a problem that seems insurmountable. For more than 25 years, I have helped a variety of people from all walks of life find solutions to issues at home, at work, in the military, at school, in their relationships or within themselves. I have in-depth knowledge of people in law careers, having worked 8 years in law firms. In addition, I was a partner is a counseling practice called Homefront LLC that counseled service members, their families, first responders and trauma survivors.

Some people have suffered loss or trauma. Others are struggling with family problems or workplace dissatisfaction. Many are feeling lost, confused or frustrated. Counseling can resolve these challenges and lead to a life that is rewarding and enjoyable.

I have a MS degree in psychology and a certification for Military/Veteran Behavioral Health from the DOD. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Delaware in the US and am a Nationally Certified Counselor.

My style of counseling involves working together in a safe and supportive space at a pace set by the client. We will identify strengths and understand challenges. We will look at behaviors that are beneficial and those that are limiting. We will design new approaches, practice new skills and assess the outcomes. Together we will craft a new direction that leads to happiness, self acceptance and achievement.

Everyone has the capacity for growth and development. And, I believe that we all deserve a happy and fulfilling life. If this is what you are looking for, I would be pleased to work with you.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Joyce is fantastic. She really helped me through some tough times. My moms cancer diagnosis, her passing, my recently diagnosed chronic disease and my stressful job situation. She kept me sane through it and still does.

Joyce has been by my side through various countries and different times of crisis in my life. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for her. Four years of constant support and counting! Thank you Joyce for everything you do!

J.U.·May 10, 2022


I've been working with Joyce Keene for over 8 months now and have found her support tremendously helpful. I feel very comfortable and understood in all our sessions, there is no judgment or pressure which makes it easier to open up about difficult topics. I can highly recommend her to anyone looking for an experienced and professional therapist.

I adore Joyce, She is incredibly intelligent and reads me very well. She’s helped me (and continues to help me,) with childhood trauma, fertility issues and adhd. I’ve had other therapists and counselling over the years and without doubt Joyce is the best I’ve had. She was brilliant when I was at my lowest reminding me not to put pressure on myself, tactics to help with panic attacks and to give my body time to recovery from ivf, basically making sure I was being kind to me. I’m now on a journey of understanding my adhd and more ivf in the future is on the cards and I feel better knowing that I have this support system in the shape of joyce! Thank you

Joyce Keene is a great therapist. I feel very comfortable opening up to her and I never feel pressure from her, but I can progress with things in my own pace. I have been feeling bad for a long time without really being able to understand what makes me so anxious all the time, but Joyce is able to read me and ask questions that help me to understand the situation and suggests actions I can try to make it better.

H.E.·Dec 10, 2021


Joyce has helped me really break through one of my most major blocks. Thank you!

K.E.·Nov 04, 2021


Joyce is fantastic. I don't think I could make it through a these hurdles life has thrown at me without her.

J.A.·Sep 29, 2021


Joyce has been an amazing asset during one of the most difficult and chaotic times of my life. Her recommendations on how to handle stress and anxiety have been extremely helpful.

J.A.·May 25, 2021


Joyce is great

B.R.·Apr 16, 2021


After working with Joyce weekly for two years, I have completely turned my life around. Before Joyce, anxiety and childhood traumas were consuming my life and I was desperate for help. Joyce was kind, caring and an attentive listener while we worked to figure out the root cause of my anxiety. From there, she helped me with tips and ways to overcome these feelings that were keeping me from fully living my life. I’m forever grateful for Joyce’s help and how she got me my life and future back. She is the absolute best counselor and I cannot recommend her enough!

D.E.·Mar 31, 2021


Joyce is very astute and solutions-focused. Within the first week she not only recognized a pattern in my depression that no other therapist had noticed before, but recommended a book that directly addressed the issue. As I read, I can reach out to her about how the book makes me feel, or how I can work on improving my mood every single day. I feel like I've already learned more from her in a few weeks than months of traditional therapy.

M.A.·Mar 16, 2021


Joyce is a very kind therapist. She listens and she gives a range of tools for me to work with. Since session 1, she could pick up hints of what I was feeling and has been very helpful.

A.R.·Jan 18, 2021


Joyce is a great councillor who has helped me go through several difficult moments in my life while giving very helpful advice. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone!

M.A.·Dec 04, 2020


Joyce Keene has helped me feel so much better than I ever thought I could in my life. I truly feel like I understand myself now.

C.H.·Dec 01, 2020


Best therapist I have ever had

L.A.·Oct 19, 2020


Joyce is nothing short of fabulous to work with. She is professional and supportive, honest and caring. She encouraged me to come up with solutions to some of my issues, but provided effective guidance. Her name came up in my gratitude journal frequently!!

L.I.·Oct 17, 2020


I really appreciate the support Joyce gave me. She was straightforward and considerate which was really good for me. She gave me ways to handle overwhelming feelings healthily and also encouraged me with my work/career struggles.

A.L.·Aug 15, 2020


Joyce is of huge importance to me. I know she is there to support me with her expertise while I work through some tricky stuff. She has educated me and collaborated with me. I am in the UK and I have never stuck with counselling. I have found counsellors to be aloof, condescending , and the process of counselling like some game where I am not privy to their process, while they sit as an assumed expert not being transparent or collaborative. With Joyce I feel I have an experienced expert other truly working with me, hearing me, validating me, drawing on research and and her experience to educate me and help me understand relevant ideas and findings, as well teaching about specific techniques to help in truly practical ways which I can draw on in the moment Basically I feel that Joyce has got my back!

A.N.·Jul 25, 2020


Joyce is an excellent person to talk to. She remains unbiased but always has my concerns on the forefront and validates my feelings while providing ways to understand/cope with these feelings.

J.A.·Jun 26, 2020


Joyce is wonderful. She has been extremely helpful and I have appreciated her support.

C.A.·May 15, 2020


She is thoughtful and kind during our sessions.

C.A.·Apr 30, 2020


In such a short time of working with Joyce, she has already made a great impact in my life! She has helped me through a scary accident, but also helps me understand and cope with the struggles that I have each week. Not only does Joyce always listen to and support you, but gives you actionable things to work on to make progress!

P.A.·Apr 27, 2020


It will be wonderful to connect with Joyce again. Joyce was my first counsellor and I seemed to have bounced through life before without needing any professional help. When I had a major crash I was connected to Joyce through Betterhelp and I was so fortunate. She is amazing and really allowed me the space to sort out the mess I was in and unpack one situation from another.

T.A.·Apr 14, 2020


Joyce has been very helpful for me. I have struggled with anxiety my entire life and I feel she has helped me get on a path I didn't realize was possible. She is very personable and I felt it was easy to feel comfortable in sharing my struggles. It has been an overall positive experience. Thank you, Joyce!

K.Y.·Dec 09, 2019


Joyce is absolutely fantastic at what she does. Without exaggeration, she has helped me turn my entire life around.

S.A.·Oct 06, 2019


Joyce has been very helpful and professional, her suggested methods have significantly helped me recently and I couldn't recommend her services enough.

W.I.·Sep 11, 2019


I am so glad I have someone like Joyce to talk with. She's able to get to my core issues and make sense of the many things I write to her. And even though I write a lot, she responds in a timely manner. It's been so helpful to have someone so experienced to help me sort through my issues and thoughts. I was a little skeptical about online counseling via messaging, but I think it's a great way of communicating because I can take time to make sure that I am expressing myself the way I want to, whereas I might feel more rushed if I were talking face-to-face. I'm impressed that even though we've never spoken directly, Joyce still has been able to understand me and help me so much in the short time that I've worked with her.

A.D.·Jun 22, 2019


Joyce Keene is an understanding counselor. She provides a variety of techniques to deal with my mental health issues.

V.A.·Sep 27, 2018


Joyce has great insight and has challenged and supported me throughout this process. She is obviously a very experienced and compassionate counsellor. I would highly recommend her.

M.A.·Sep 26, 2018


Joyce is professional, understanding, empathetic yet firm. I feel like we collaborate well in terms of helping me set and accomplish goals, something that anyone with depression would struggle with. I have complete trust in her abilities.

K.Y.·Aug 09, 2018


It is early days in my sessions with Joyce however she has already had a big positive impact on my life by helping me to understand more about why I’m feeling the way I feel.

A.L.·Jul 22, 2018


Joyce has been a great help to me. I feel reassured that she understands the problems I am facing and she is helping me to put in place some tangible tools to help manage and address them.

J.A.·Jun 15, 2018


I've been working with Joyce the past 6 months. It has been challenging to face some of the things I didn't want to realize and I can honestly say that my life changed a lot for good. She was always caring and quickly to respond. She gave me great tips and I learned a lot from her. I'm very happy I chose BetterHelp (after my experience i became an advocate) and that the system chose Joyce for me, we are a great fit!

N.I.·Jun 05, 2018


Joyce was brilliant and patient with me. She was listening and suggested different ways to help me deal with my situation. I appreciate her very much as I was too low and down. At the moment, I am feeling that I am able to cope with it little bit. Thank you, Joyce! Highly recommended!!

E.M.·May 23, 2018


She is a wonderful counselor. She found what I was struggling with right away and did an amazing job to ease my anxiety. If you are having strong anxiety caused by something in the past, she's the right person to talk to.
