Exploring Life & Business with Britney “Dr. Joy” Powers-Elzey, PhD, CLC, Doula

Today we’d like to introduce you to Britney “Dr. Joy” Powers-Elzey, PhD, CLC, Doula.

Hi Britney “Dr. Joy”, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
With the motivation of the world around me, I found the encouragement to build my broken person in order to build others. After being bullied in the 9th grade, my mom decided into homeschooling. This gave me space to have peace. It also gave me the time to graduate high-school a little early which lead me to an early college journey. First completing my bachelor in education followed by clinical psychology which I furthered into completing my PhD in 2020. Between 2010 I opened my first Montessori program which later grew into a full family life center that caters to prenatal life coaching, pediatric psychology and overall wellness coaching today.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
The road has been not so much a road but more of a roller-coaster. Walking away from my job to pursue a dream was scary. My biggest cheerleader, my husband Paul kept me encouraged and constantly invested into me. I launched my Wellness Clinic in spring of 2021 during the pandemic. That took so much strength and faith in God at that time people were still afraid to visit medical offices and such. On top of that in June, I was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. So this made the journey even harder.
