Email us about Joy

Demonstrating an interest within the area of mind and body, Joy Ocampo seeks to understand how people can learn to connect the two in order to face adversity and within their lives. With a passion for helping others reach their potential, as well as an emphasis in sports and health, Joy is as active in session as she is within her daily life.

Joy received a M.A. in Counseling with a specialization in Sport and Health Psychology at Adler University in Chicago. During her training, Joy has learned to help people reach their peak performance in life by teaching them effective skills to increase motivation, goal setting, interpersonal skill building and managing emotional distress. Joy believes that a holistic approach is most beneficial in one’s well-being in which all aspects of life should be evaluated. She incorporate positive self-talk, and imagery to manage anxiety and emotions,

Presently, Joy has extensive experience working in a behavioral health hospital setting that specializes in treatment for anxiety disorders. She incorporates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure Response Prevention (ERP), along with  Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), into her work with individuals, groups, and families. Her areas of expertise include OCD, Anxiety, Eating Disorders, Panic, Career challenges, and those seeking a greater purpose but feeling “stuck” in that path.

Joy is a clinician actively engaging to decrease mental health stigma. Just like going in for a check-up at the doctor’s office, Joy encourages everyone needs to get a check-up with their therapist. As we are often told to keep our minds in check without knowing how. The mind is one of the most complex and powerful things in the world – With the help of Joy she seeks to provide the skills and tools to create balance in your life, mentally and physically.

On her off-hours Joy spends her time engaging in daily activity and sports. She is currently seeking to work with guests in the Wicker Park office.
