We all have the potential to create a meaningful life in the face of both joyful and painful circumstances. It is my hope that our time together will allow you to more fully embrace a sense of wonder about the possibilities for your own life as you discover new paths towards wholeness.
In supporting individuals as they navigate life’s successes and challenges, I have come to realize the importance of authentic relationships. To this end, I seek to offer a safe and compassionate space in which your story can unfold. It is within this context that I believe you will be able to gain new insights as well as reconnect with aspects of yourself that may have been forgotten or become blocked.
I have been practicing different forms of mindfulness over the past eighteen years and always welcome the opportunity to share these practices with others. I have found that integrating mindfulness-based skills with existential, transpersonal, and somatic/body-centered approaches can be very healing and transformative.
Since 2002, I have had the opportunity to provide counseling to adolescents in a wilderness therapy program, incarcerated individuals in a drug and alcohol program, homeless Veterans in a transitional housing program, and Veterans and military families in a community mental health setting. I have been seeing individuals in my private practice since 2015.
Outside of my practice, I enjoy running, biking, writing novels, and meditation. I also love traveling and just returned from living as an expat in Berlin, Germany for the past 1.5 years.

I was very happy with this counseling because Josh was very understanding and although I was not able to be very consistent, he provided very practical suggestions, very targeted insights, and made me fell understood and supported. He guided me through my struggles and made me able to understand there is a way through it, providing very helpful tools. Thanks so much!
Josh is an excellent counselor , excellent communicator and so caring. I greatly appreciate his reaching out anytime I need him, responds in a timely manner. It was nice to have someone immediately understand what I was going through, .I'm grateful to have been matched with such an excellent and fitting counselor. Thank you Josh!! I highly recommend him.
I am so blessed to be working with Josh. He is so caring, attentive and non-judgmental. I came to BetterHelp for PTSD, anxiety and depression. Every session leaves me feeling so much better. I can truly tell Josh anything which is so important to heal. Thank you Josh!!
Josh has been of tremendous help. He is an excellent therapist.
Josh is an amazing human! Working with him has really helped me focus on self love and appreciate the small steps I make on my journey of recovery from stress. He is so insightful, and a good listener. I would definitely be recommending him and if this app had a star rating for therapists, then Josh would definitely be getting a 5 from me.
When signing up at BetterHelp I was looking to receive counseling for my anxiety, which was creating a lot of stress for myself. I was paired with Josh Flowers who immediately was very accommodating to my schedule and requests for video appointments. Along with being a great listener, he also invited me to ask myself questions, and to try to come to my own conclusions. He also provided me with a few mindful exercises to practice lowering my anxiety and self-esteem issues, all of which were helpful. As I mentioned to Josh, Im currently at a point where I feel more confident and like I don't need these sessions. But I enjoyed BetterHelp and if I were to come back I would definitely request Josh again.
Josh worked with me for about 3 months. He is an excellent listener and a competent therapist. I felt comfortable and safe talking to him about my problems. He is also very attentive and knowledgeable, he provided feedback and resource to help me get better according to my needs. I would say each session was very engaging and I've learned something new about myself after each session. I feel happier and have less anxiety after the counseling.
Josh has been awesome about keeping in touch with me and helping to guide me through the counseling process. He's very easy to work with and get along with.
Josh is a fantastic therapist. From day one, he provided me with actions I could take to help navigate my mental health issues. I really appreciated his pragmatic approach. I felt that he was a great listener, understood my issues and was very knowledgeable. He was able to point me to resources when I had questions and was very supportive, open, and empathetic. He has helped me a great deal, and I’m very thankful for that.
My name is Lauren Radakovich and I've been working with Josh Flowers for a little over a month now. I'm not sure if I could have been matched with a better counselor. Josh has proved insightful and attentive and has responded to all of my messages and requests in an extremely professional and timely manner. Josh's attention to detail and holistic perspective have provided me with a lot of comfort and insight. His mindfulness-based approach has helped me come back to a grounded foundation at times of experiencing anxiety. I'm grateful to have been matched with such an excellent and fitting counselor.
