Joy Ross, LMSW

As a dynamic and creative person, I’m motivated to use the most effective practices to help empower my clients and improve their quality of life. My goal as a therapist is to create a casual environment to ease the tension or the stress of my clients.  We can work through the difficulties in life and celebrate the positive things!  My approach is individualized and based on personal needs at that given time.  This can vary from being empathetic and supportive to being quite direct.  If my philosophy and approach sound like a good fit, I look forward to speaking with you! Let’s Get Started! 

I studied and received my Bachelors of Social Work and Masters of Social Work from Wayne State University in Detroit Michigan.  I obtained my LMSW-Clinical and Macro License in 2002.
