About me

Are the challenges of everyday life becoming too much to handle? Are you having problems with grief and loss, relationships, intimacy, physical illness or injury, or emotional health? When these struggles become overwhelming, you do not have to go it alone! My name is John David Joslin, LCSW. I am a Licensed Certified Social Worker. With caring and compassion I will listen to your story, help guide you in better understanding your problems, and help you discover solutions. I am a social worker and health educator with over 34 years of experience helping clients to solve problems, find peace of mind and make a fresh start in life. Let me help you with your healing journey. The time to start is now!

I provide online psychotherapy for adults who are basically mentally healthy and who need guidance in handling the challenges of everyday life. Psychotherapy involves professional guidance in resolving conflicts and emotional problems by helping people make healthy changes in ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving.  This is accomplished by using cognitive behavioral techniques and psychoeducation.  I use problem-solving and mental health recovery models. 

I have made a long journey to find my truth. I am still on that journey. I want to help you on your journey to find your truth.

Dr. Joslin helped me start my journey in exploring my gender identity. He was an incredible help and allowed me to grow into my identity at my own pace. He offered guidance and support that helped me when I most needed it.

Dr. Joslin has helped me quite a lot in the month we have been working together. He is a great listener who will guide you toward your own answers but also take the lead when you are stuck. He is teaching me to examine my thought patterns and to learn how to challenge negative thoughts and emotions. I enjoy working with him.
