Joy completed her Master of Arts in Transpersonal Counseling and Psychology with an art therapy emphasis at Naropa Institute in Boulder, CO. She has a positive, optimistic, insightful, and gentle approach to treating loss, grief, anger, trauma, depression and anxiety with the intention to nurture self growth, empowerment and authenticity in her clients. Her work in private practice includes Pediatric Health, Cedar Springs Hospital, county jails, Wounded Warrior Project and battered women’s shelters. She is currently a Behavioral Health Provider at Peak Vista Community Health. “I enjoy helping others create new perspectives, build on current skills and let go of what is no longer needed to heal. I believe our nature as human beings is to live in abundance with healthy relationships, balance, curiosity, and creativity.”

“Refocus and Reframe”

Facilitated by Marre Moores, Board of Directors Member

Participants will use pencil and watercolor for this fun exercise.

Please bring a 3D object with you that has a positive meaning for you, and is no larger than a dinner plate. It could be a stuffed animal, jewelry etc. but not a photograph.  It will be used for reference only and not be altered in any way.

Marre Moores is a 47 year old professional portrait artist and Colorado Springs native. She loves capturing the spirit of people in oil paint. Studying her craft has taught her so much about herself and life in general. She has a British husband and eight year old daughter who would like a pet Unicorn. Her favorite place to be is in the mountains.
