I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Florida with several years experience working with adolescents and adults of various cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds struggling with problems related to mental health and substance use. During my career, I have worked in a variety of behavioral health care settings, providing both individual and group therapy. Using a client-centered approach, I emphasize empathy, positive support, and non-judgment in my work. Additionally, I prioritize the use of evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy interventions including mindfulness, as appropriate. I believe that the journey to become familiar with our authentic selves not only improves our feelings of wellness and self-esteem, but also helps to enrich the relationships that we share with others. I will work with you to establish a better understanding of the barriers you are experiencing. Together, we will create a plan for you to overcome them.
It is my privilege to partner with individuals on these very personal journeys and I look forward to travel with you on yours.

I've only had a couple of sessions with Joseph, but right off the bat he has been incredibly helpful and insightful. He listens to me without interruption and helps to ease my mind when I go down a rabbit hole. He has heaps of experience and it shows in the way he listens to you and the suggestions/advice he responds with. I'm very grateful to have Joseph as my counsellor and even after a couple of sessions, I know we are on the right path!
Joseph asked questions to understand my past and to help work through my anxiety. Already after two phone sessions I feel calmer and lighter and I know I can communicate with Joseph via text via the journal feature to provide him an update on how I'm feeling. He is responsive when I have anxiety and can help me think rationally in the moment.
I've only been working with Joseph for a short amount of time but in the short amount of time he has really made me feel comfortable to talk to him. It's my first time going through counseling and I was really nervous and unsure of how it was going to go but I'm really happy. I'm already noticing progress and changes to my thinking and overall emotional wellbeing. I've got a long way to go but I'm confident that I will develop better coping mechanisms and stronger mental health working with Joseph.
Joe is really excellent. Instantly made me feel comfortable and listened to. Has great insight and genuinely cares about my well-being and happiness. 10/10.
