We had the good fortune of connecting with Joslyn Curley and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Joslyn, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I wanted to make a difference in the mental health social structure of my community.  Now that the hardest of times with the pandemic is almost over, I have been inundated with therapeutic requests.  I hope that the community continues to reach out and seek support through therapy, especially the black male population.  I eventually want to support by non-profit means financial assistance for those who need mental health services or other resources.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am excited to be doing what I love!  In an industry known for neglectful self-care and burnout, I am proud to have weathered the storm of the pandemic and rebuilding my brand.  Eventually, I want to be one of the most sought-after Psychotherapists for Motivational Speaking, Consultations, and Writing.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I love Houston Downtown, from the Museum of Fine Arts to Discovery Green.  Also, Vintage Park and the Woodlands.  Depending on what my entourage is interested in eating or doing depicts what excursion we may get into.  Although I am from the Northern part of Houston, so I am fondest of that side.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Recognition goes out to those battling with some sort of mental health issue causing them great discomfort in life.  It is with this community I advocate for defeating the stigma of mental illness and support endeavors to seek therapeutic intervention.  I also give praise to all the clinicians who deal with their own problems and give of themselves tirelessly on helping people do better and be better.  

Life Gets (so much) Better!
