Joyce Orr, EdS, LMFT, NCC, Marriage & Family Therapist in Gainesville
I offer a holistic, integrative approach to psychotherapy. Besides examining common life problems and solutions, I focus on body, mind, emotions, and spirit. I often use CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) and Mindfulness techniques to highlight the connection between thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. I invite clients to consider life purpose and the potential for spiritual growth within life's challenges. Although my foundation is Christian, I draw upon the wisdom of other faiths, both Western and Eastern. My intent is to help you discover that therapy is safe and empowering and supports you in determining the best direction for your life.
I work with adults (individuals and couples) on relationship issues (premarital, marital, divorce, remarriage, finances, blended families), transitions, parenting, addictions issues with individuals and couples, spirituality, life purpose. With children (toddlers - teens), my areas of specialization include play therapy, behavioral issues, social skills, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, bullying, trauma, ADHD.
My work as a therapist is informed by over three decades teaching Yoga, Meditation, and Breath Work, all of which focus on cultivating health, satisfaction, and happiness in life. Besides my extensive education and experience in these areas, I also bring my own life experiences as a wife and parent.
