The MelindaJoy Hour

Saturdays 5-6 PM

I am a native New Mexican, born and raised in Clovis, on land homesteaded by my paternal grandfather.

I am a psychotherapist, in private practice here in Santa Fe, as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor.  I am a graduate of Southwestern College and Eastern New Mexico University.  I have experience working with the NM State Legislature, local government and private nonprofit.

I am passionate about the mental health care needs of the people of this state, with a mission in mind for this show, to actively, advocate for those needs.
