About me

Hello! My name is Joshua and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and retired United States Marine with experience working with persons facing various challenging circumstances such as anxiety, depression, addictions, relationship issues, severe and persistent mental illness, and medication non-compliance to name only a few. I have also helped many people who have faced traumatic experiences.

My style of therapy is client-centered, interactive, supportive, and knowing that all persons are to be treated with the utmost respect, sensitivity, compassion, and confidentiality. My approach encompasses cognitive-behavioral (CBT), acceptance and commitment (ACT), dialectical-beahviorally informed (DBT), humanistic, and internal family systems (IFS).

It undoubtedly takes much courage to seek therapeutic support during life's most challenging moments, but it is my belief that in those moments change can indeed take place.

I look forward to working with you!

He is very easy to talk to and very knowledgeable. I look forward my sessions. Thank you, we have only started but I think great things will happen.

Joshua has been the most helpful therapist in every way because he genuinely expresses an interest in what is happening with me as a person. He truly listens and asks questions that evoke thoughtful responses. I am sincerely grateful that I was matched to this particular therapist and feel that I have been helped tremendously- in only a few months! The online counseling platform has been convenient because I live in a very rural area. I wish I knew how better to express in words how thankful I am for Joshua, and for all that he has helped me with. Thank you Better Help for making it possible for me to get some help!

I’m really happy to talk to Joshua. Seems like I can go anywhere and talk about anything and he’s a good listener. But also he asks good questions and makes me think.

Joshua is a wonderful counselor. I was genuinely heard & he made sure I knew I was supported in every issue & hard decision I was facing. His calm, reassuring demeanor was very helpful & appreciated as I felt consumed by everything life was throwing at me. He was also very responsive and was a safe place for me to be completely honest in how I was doing. I communicated a couple things that are really important to me to have in therapy and he was completely open & accommodating to them. I highly recommend Joshua!
