Joy Quanrud Grimsley

MFT, EMDR, Founder and Owner

Joy founded the Center for Therapy & Mediation because she wanted to offer clients mental health services in a safe, warm, and comfortable setting. She often describes the Center as a mental health mall, because 18 independent private practice clinicians offer a variety of services under one roof. All clinicians are licensed in individual, couple and family therapy, and some have additional credentials and/or areas of concentration. Complementary modalities are also offered, such as mediation with Juli Baines, family reunification, hypnotherapy with Deanna Lyons, matrix re-imprinting, neuro-linguistic programming, and more. As soon as you enter the Center, you can tell that Joy strives to make therapy a good experience, as you even can sip a cup of coffee/tea, listen to calming music, all while you wait for your session.

You're welcome to call for a free consultation at 775-842-5669.
