A Welcome From Family Harmony Therapy

Hello! I’m Joy Thornhill MA, LMFT, APCC and I would like to welcome you to my website and therapy practice. As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and owner of Family Harmony Therapy in Ventura County, my focus and dedication is on providing therapy for children and families in order to increase harmony in their relationships. With evidence-based training in Parent and Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Child Therapy, Family Therapy, and trauma-informed Play Therapy, Art Therapy, and Sand Tray Therapy, my goal is to help each individual in the family system feel seen, heard, and understood while working towards healthier relationships.

My Values

We honor the stories, feelings, and emotions expressed and work to create an environment where healing can occur. This is accomplished through leaning in to what is being said and feeling into the emotional process in the room. We deeply value the uniqueness of each individual and approach the therapeutic relationship with compassion and understanding. Backed with many years of experience working with children and families, sound theoretical orientation, and evidence-based modalities you can trust that your family is in good hands.
