I love to see people thrive and reach their full potential. My passion for people began early in my career when I served in the United States Air Force, helping people get settled into their new duty station as well as getting them prepared for deployment. While in the Air Force, I traveled to several countries, including Germany where I met my wonderful husband, Jamahl, of 15 years.
Since then, I have received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and my Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I have over 11 years of experience working with individuals, couples, and families. My clients have described me as honest, trustworthy, and compassionate. I use my professional and personal experience to help people develop and cultivate healthy relationships. I accomplish this by conducting relationship counseling and coaching, speaking at various engagements, and hosting the For Love Only Podcast. I am also an author of the marriage-themed books, Your Tool Guide for a Happy Marriage: Practical Solutions on How to Build a Thriving Marriage and A Wife's Superpower.
I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in the state of Florida. I am currently a PhD student. My PhD specialization is Trauma & Disaster Relief. I am devoted to helping survivors heal from their past sexual trauma. Any form of trauma can negatively impact people as individuals and their relationships. I also serve as an advocate for survivors of domestic and sexual abuse and assault.
WHAT Clients ARE SAYING
"There are moments in life you'll find yourself feeling stuck. Stuck in a situation or stuck in a headspace that you just can't seem to shake off and move forward from. You've tried it on your own but you still can't seem to get untied. At that point you invite a good counselor to come in, like organizing a messing room, she'll start to compartmentalize every perspective you had just laying around and tripping you up. This is what Faith Joyner did for me. I was dealing with some family issues and she knew the right questions to ask and the right answers to give, her analytical skills are on point. If you're looking for a counselor or someone to talk to that could help you move forward in life she is your lady. I know she could do for you what she did for me. Check her out today!"
"Counseling with Faith was monumental in my life. She transformed my thinking and helped me with perspective. When I first started seeing Faith not only was she patient and professional, but it was evident that she actually cared; she cared about my privacy, feelings, dignity, and well-being! She was able to relate to me on a variety of levels and really dug into root issues that have since aided in the advancement of my life. She gave me practical tools on how to cope and assisted in skill development so I could become a stronger, better, person! I will tell anyone, they'll never find anyone that will meet them exactly where they are while simultaneously healing problem areas!"
"Faith Joyner is an exceptional Counselor. She is really good with setting the atmosphere and making each individual feel so comfortable as if they're talking to an old friend. She is definitely someone I can confide in and I'm glad that she also knows how to be professional. I have discovered so much about myself and how to properly handle life situations. I recommend all of my friends to her when they're having marital problems or when they just need someone to help them figure things out. She is gifted in helping you pull information out of you that you didn't even know existed. I guarantee you will see results in your life after seeing her."
"Faith helped me and my wife. Now our marriage is better than ever. She's very helpful and has helped me learn a lot during counseling. She didn't take anyone's side like I was anticipating. I'd most definitely recommend her service!"
"It normally takes a while for me to open up and trust people. However, even in my first session with Faith, I found myself opening up to her on a comfort level of a long-time, trusted friend. She helped to reveal and bring awareness to the “why’s” of my behavior in a gentle, caring and loving manner. She genuinely cares and has the wisdom and experience to help me see through the dysfunctions and guide me through the deliverance and breakthroughs. I was dealing with a lot of insecurities
and perceived it to be normal behavior as a woman. She helped me get to the root of where the insecurities stem from and help me to understand that it’s not normal to be insecure. My confidence was restored and I felt free from the shackles of insecurities. Her therapeutic methods are comforting and supportive."
