River Valley Counseling Center Promotes Joy Brock to Program Director of CONCERN EAP
HOLYOKE — River Valley Counseling Center (RVCC) announced the promotion of Joy Brock to program director of the CONCERN Employee Assistance Program (EAP).
“We are pleased to promote Dr. Brock to our leadership team,” said Rosemarie Ansel, executive director of River Valley Counseling Center. “As a licensed psychologist with RVCC for over four years, Joy is experienced not only within her area of expertise, but also within our corporate culture of providing high-quality, compassionate care every time.”
Brock received her bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Maryland University College, a master’s degree in psychology from Old Dominion University, and a master’s degree in clinical psychology and a doctorate in psychology, both from Regent University. She practiced in Virginia and Florida before moving to Vermont for a clinical psychology internship at the Brattleboro Retreat, where she was involved in the Uniformed Service Program.
Brock joined RVCC in October 2014. Her experience includes being a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, a member of Regent University’s trauma team, and a member of the Florida Red Cross Disaster Action Team. This unique blend of experience supports her role as the new program director of the CONCERN EAP.
“In my previous role, I had the opportunity to work in the CONCERN EAP office and provided short-term, solution-focused counseling to employees to address a variety of issues,” Brock said. “In this new role, I am looking forward to expanding RVCC’s presence within the local community and demonstrating our commitment to providing wellness to both employers and employees.”
