About Me

I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Michigan with over 17 years of experience working as both a school social worker and clinical social worker. I've worked in many different settings with individuals and families who have a variety of personal issues such as depression/anxiety, stress, family problems, trauma/abuse, addictions of all kinds, relationships/parenting, ADHD and with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

My counseling style is sincere and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, empathy, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and strength-based counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Written by S.Y. on Jul 13, 2021 after therapy with Joseph for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and adhd

Joseph has been wonderful to work with. He is very understanding, non-judgemental and has a sense of humour. He is not pushy and encourages you to discuss things as you are ready to do so. Joseph regularly follows up and sends messages reiterating what was discussed in sessions so that you can refer to this information throughout the week. I would highly recommend Joseph to anyone seeking counselling!

Joseph's a fantastic therapist and I would recommend working with him especially if you're new to therapy. He's been of great help during a particularly stressful time globally.

Joseph is very easy to talk with. I haven't judged by him or uncomfortable to express my flaws.
