Please, call me by my middle name, Josh. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Florida. I have been a counselor for about 14 years in different contexts including a substance abuse treatment center, private practice, and most recently with the Department of Veterans affairs working with combat veterans and their families. In general, my experience includes helping people through important transitions in their life, relationship difficulties, parenting development, and multiple kinds of personal traumas.
More specifically, many of my clients have been male and common themes include male identity and development, emotions and self-care, what male communication looks like, being a nurturing and grounded father, and improving intimate relationships.
I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process. I will ask you for your assessment of our progress regularly. I want you to sense that your time is valued and you are getting value out of your therapy.
My therapeutic style has been described as direct and down-to-Earth. I place a priority on the power of thoughts and belief systems (cognitive behavior therapy) with individual issues, and a focus on family system/dynamics, emotional attachment, and equity when dealing with relationship issues.
Additional areas of focus: First Responder Issues, Military and Veterans Issues

Wouldn’t do the therapy in the chat as the company offers. In fact it’s the second therapist that wouldn’t. Seems like a scam to me. I don’t recommend.

Fantastic listener and has great skills in explaining the theory and problems I am experiencing and then showing me ways to solve those problems. I would highly recommend Josh.

Frederick McCumber is a good listener with great advice. Cultural differences doesn't matter, being open and vulnerable does. We get as much as we put in. Keep going!

He’s very understanding, a great listener, and always pushes me to look at things differently. I highly respect him and look forward to working with him more.
