About Me

My name is Josh and I am a licensed mental health counselor practicing in Florida for over the past 15 years. I earned my undergraduate degree in psychology from Clemson University. I earned my graduate degree in mental health counseling from Nova Southeastern University. I have extensive experience working with addictions and recovery with adults, as well as working with adults with mental health concerns, including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and adjustment disorder. I also have experience working with adults suffering from a history of abusive relationships (physical, mental and sexual), as well as PTSD that results from these abusive histories. I prefer using a collaborative, solution-oriented approach, as well as using cognitive behavioral therapy techniques to help my patients work through their problems in an effective, time-efficient manner.

Josh has been really helpful to me and helping me find ways to control my anger. I am more positive now and it's all thanks to Josh for helping me get strategies.

Josh is responsive and supportive. He asks the right questions for me to ponder over and guides me to notice the recurring theme in many of my behaviours and helps me work through it in small pieces.

I have only been working with Joshua for a short time, but so far he has been extremely helpful. He has a way of talking you through your problems that doesn’t feel judgmental or like he has any agenda. He guides you to work through things in a reassuring way that helps you find clarity. I look forward to continuing my work with him.

Joshua is very attentive and he listens without judgement. He always know how to respond in any given situation. He has helped me tremendously since we started our sessions.

Straight into the deep stuff. Joshua doesn't waste time. Problems are targeted from day one unlike standard therapists who spend 4 sessions 'building their picture'. He comes across as honest, easy to talk to and is vigilant. His resume shows that he is highly experienced and working with him, this is very much apparent. Recommended.

Joshua is an excellent counselor. I feel he is there for me, responding to my messages and checking in when i don't write. His responses are focused on me, they are honest and give me an insight on what is going on in my head.

Written by A.I. on May 02, 2019 after counseling with Joshua for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and coping with life changes

Josh has been an excellent support for me while going through a very difficult breakup. It was easy to get to know him and connect quickly through our first few exchanges. He has listened carefully to my concerns, proposed questions that help me to process what has happened and most importantly he has “rode the wave” with me in a completely non-judgmental, encouraging manner.

I am so grateful for Josh’s insights and reminders of my strengths. He has helped me build emotional resilience and to develop confidence in my decision making. Would highly recommend him!

Written by K.E. on Feb 09, 2019 after counseling with Joshua for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and addictions

Joshua is an extremely smart, intuitive, caring and proactive counselor. He always seems to very quickly "get" what's going on for me, offers support, insights, encouragement, and excellent suggestions for how to move forward. I could not have asked for a better counselor for my needs.

Written by M.E. on Feb 05, 2019 after counseling with Joshua for 3 weeks on issues concerning addictions, relationship issues, and self esteem

I've been working with Josh for about a month now and have found him to be tremendously helpful.

His relaxed approach helped put me at ease and his questions always insightful.

I also enjoyed the small pieces of humor he managed to inject into our conversations.

Josh has definitely changed how I feel towards counseling!
