I've had over 50 therapists tell me all the things I could not do. Josh listens to me and encourages me to use all the abilities I have. Many could learn from his listening skills, and his ways to make you think about topics in your life.

I'm greatly appreciating the help Josh is giving me. I'm unloading an awful lot on the guy and he's really stepping up to the task. We're in early days, just getting to know each other, but I feel supported and am optimistic about the progress I can make.

Josh has been my counselor for the past one year and has been absolutely instrumental in my journey out of abuse, toward recovery. Even through my darkest times, he has always offered a constructive, positive perspective, helping me to value myself and nurture my health. I always find encouragement in his messages. I would highly recommend him to anyone going through a difficult time in life.

Josh has been the biggest support for me and I know that no matter what happened to me that he would have a non judgmental explanation and way to dealing with it, and that is what I have been looking for. Thanks to josh I feel that I don't need anyone else. I can understand and support my self and hear my self out and accept it

Josh Schubert has been my psychological and philosophical mentor at a very vulnerable time of my life. He is very helpful, resourceful, compassionate and professional in his work. Counseling with him has been a valuable learning experience for me and I am hopeful that I can make the appropriate changes in my life with this. I would greatly recommend his service to anyone who needs some positive changes in their lives.

Written by C.H on Feb 08, 2017 after counseling with Josh for 2 weeks depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Josh has been very helpful in helping me overcome my trauma; I doubt I would've reached this point on my own and it could potentially have gotten so much worse. For the longest time, I didn't feel like I had anyone in my corner helping me out, but I know I do now.

Written by T.O on Oct 19, 2016 after counseling with Josh for 4 days depression, stress, anxiety, and career

I have talked to a lot of people and Mr. Josh is one of the best listeners out there. He really tries to understand you, listen to you and help you.

You can tell him your entire biography and he'd read it from the first chapter to the end. He'd help you clear you mind.

It was a blessing talking to Mr.Josh.

Written by K.E on Oct 18, 2016 after counseling with Josh for 3 weeks depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Because of my work schedule, I was unable to contact a traditional in-person counselor during a very dark time in my life. I took a chance on BetterHelp and got matched up with Josh. He has been incredibly helpful. I can't explain how much of a positive impact my experience with him has made on my life.

Written by R.U on Aug 27, 2016 after counseling with Josh for 1 month depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related, parenting, and self esteem

Josh was easy to communicate with. He seemed understanding and straightforward, Responsive and empathetic.

Written by T.Y on Aug 25, 2016 after counseling with Josh for 1 month depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, self esteem, career, and bipolar

I have been utilizing Josh'so services for about a month now. I find his insight and feedback extremely valuable as I go through this tumultuous chapter of my life. You can feel the care and compassion that he has for you in his writing. I was very hesitant to join BetterHelp because I didn't think I could do online therapy because there was no physical interaction. I was certainly wrong. Josh challenges me daily to question my thinking and the belief systems that I have in place. I would highly recommend his services to anyone that needs assistance.

Written by R.A on Aug 01, 2016 after counseling with Josh for 10 months stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, and depression

Josh has been a source of much support and strength during a very difficult time for me. I have been going through emotional abuse at home, and reached out to him for help. I found his perspective very objective and insightful. When my husband left me, I was in shock. Rather than reinforcing my pain and the negativity I was going through at home, Josh always helped redirect me toward a positive, constructive path. He emphasized the need for me to take care of myself, which has really helped me feel more stable as a person. He helped me see objectively the pattern of events at home. He gave me a much-needed boost of encouragement and support. His responses were always constructive, without pushing me one way or the other.

I would highly recommend him to anyone going through a difficult time, in need of objectivity and understanding.
