About JLI

The mission of Joyful Life Institute Inc. (JLI) is to provide services and products that help clients identify their purpose and discover their joy for life. JLI has compassion for those who are brokenhearted and oppressed, especially women. Highly stressed and traumatized clients are JLI’s targeted population. To that end, JLI counsels, coaches, or consults with individuals, couples, families, executives, and small businesses to identify, empower, and actualize their dreams and goals. Therefore, its staff develops groups, seminars, workshops, retreats, workbooks, books, and personal growth products to provide resources to address our client’s multilevel needs.


The JLI is a Christian-based business. JLI’s foundational belief is that clinicians must work with clients from holistic--- mind, body, spirit--- and systemic perspectives. While you do not have to be a Christian, it is expected that you will adhere to basic Christian principles.


Dr Richards has provided clinical supervision to more than 100 individuals in university, agency and private practice settings.


Systems theory and Christian principles are at the foundation of Dr. Richards' therapy and supervisory philosophy. Evidence-based  and experiential techniques are also practiced.
