Joye Madden, Birmingham, Alabama based coach and consultant shares her passion for recovery, that stems from her own personal healing journey which began in 2006. After watching loved ones, including her own parents and children struggle with mental illness and addiction, Joye was left with a true fervor to pass on her relief, growth and profound happiness she found through digging into her own darkness to find her light. Two of Joye’s children struggle with mental health issues, which only strengthened her desire to fight against the stigma of mental illness.
Her practice in the field of recovery began at The Bridge to Recovery where she sat as an active board member for three years and assisted in facilitating the family programing. After countless coaching trainings, research and mentors, Joye has gone out on her own where she is a true advocate for families struggling with mental illness and addiction.
Joye’s work focuses on guiding parents into their own healing, practicing self-care in the midst of motherhood, and finding the appropriate resources for the entire family system. Her coaching work allows for parents to heal at their own pace, finding personalized healing for each family member. When Joye is not working with families, you can find her knitting, baking, playing with her pups, and enjoying her family!
