Before a medical and hormonal crisis took her intuitive skills
over the top, Joyce had already made a living from them in careers
as a social worker and metaphysical consultant. From across the
country and around the world, clients have sought her advice in her
practice, Inner Growth Work. She has spent over two decades as
a consulting astrologer, tarot reader, a certified flower essence
practitioner, and dreamworker. She earned her B.A. in Social Work
from the University of Wisconsin.
Joyce has published dozens of articles in astrological magazines,
contributed to several books, including The Moon in Your Life: Being
a Lunar Type in a Solar World by Donna Cunningham, and is the
author of several e-books. Joyce wrote for and edited the
international newsletter, Chironicles, during its four-year run. Eleven
of her articles have appeared in Vibration, an on-line e-zine on flower
remedies. See Books & Pubs for more details.

across the US and around the world on topics from earth to sky—
ecology to astrology. Undaunted by the fact that she had never
done anything like it before, in 1996 she talked 18 people from four
continents into joining her for an astrological retreat in the Mt. Pelion
region of Greece, Chiron's mythical homeland. Chiron is her
Joyce has a passion for connection. Writing books is just
another way of having more “pen pals.” She has remained
friends with one of her originals since 1959.
Joyce, her husband Tim, and their fur family live in the suburbs of
Sacramento, California--the place she has called home since 1973.
Tim and Joyce are originally from Chicago.
