I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Oklahoma, and I have been working in the field since 2015. I obtained a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Central Oklahoma in May 2015. I have worked with clients with a range of concerns including anxiety, depression, OCD, ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, and family conflict. My approach blends techniques from cognitive-behavioral therapy and solution-focused therapy, and I am always researching new evidence-based techniques. I use a collaborative problem-solving approach to help my clients organize their concerns and brainstorm solutions. Also, I love recommending books to help people cope with the stress in their lives. I look forward to hearing some of your book recommendations as well!
I understand how difficult it is to seek help, and I'm proud of you for taking this big step. Well done!
I look forward to working with you!

Joshua has been great so far. I'm not a fan of counseling normally, but I can't deny the benefits of my sessions with him. I am genuinely feeling like a new person
Out of the diverse handful of therapists I've had sessions with, Joshua is the only counselor I've ever had who finds an effective balance between the extremes of "helpful, knowledgeable professional" and "just a person like me."
He is timely and well-worded with thoughtful responses, none of which have ever seemed mindlessly repetitious, irrelevant, or patronizing; The polar opposite of my past experiences in therapy in the best way possible.
Despite his fantastic use of the messaging features offered at BetterHelp, I still suggest you opt for phone and/or video call sessions, as you will cover much more ground this way. Even if you normally have anxiety or social aversion surrounding these features as I do personally, I still highly recommend you at least give them a try. Not once in our conversation did Joshua's responses give me the impression I was being judged or scrutinized harshly, so I didn't feel the same tension I associated with face-to-face counseling. He does a remarkable job of making you feel at home.
In short, I couldn't have hoped for a better first experience with BetterHelp.
Josh is extremely helpful! He is a perfect match for my needs! He had extensive knowledge, checks in with me, offers a variety of ways to communicate, and has been really helpful through this rough time!
Joshua is very professional, very helpful and seems to really hear what I write to him. Thank you.
