Joshua is a therapist who specializes in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Early Childhood Mental Health. He sees individuals experiencing stressors related to identity, relationships and setting boundaries, parental flexibility, individuals connected to the foster care system, individuals working to manage mental health symptoms such as PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, Borderline Personality Disorder, and persons with chemical health concerns.
Josh enjoys working with individuals that are a part of the LGBTQ+, Polyamorous, and Alternative Lifestyles communities. This includes being able to focus on addressing stressors and the impact of discrimination specific to those respective communities. He likes to work with individuals that may feel stuck in a problem-focused mindset and want to move towards a mindset of growth, recovery, and change.
He said that the best parts of his job are, “When there is a connection with someone I am working with and they entrust me with a part of their story. It is an honor to be able to be entrusted with carrying their stories and be a part of their revision process as they prepare their next chapters. When someone I am working with realizes they have grown to a point where our work together can come to an end. That empowerment and resilience seen in those people that have worked hard to grow towards the person they have aspired to be is amazing! I want a space that is safe for as many individuals as possible. I want a space where discomfort and growth are known and both are positive things. I want to see individuals be able to establish the lives they want to see and be able to negotiate the coauthoring of their lives with the people they care about.”
In his free time, Josh enjoys playing and attempting to master music, engaging in music as part of his mindfulness practice, and being able to see musicians as their music resonates with an audience. A fun fact about Josh is he’s from North Dakota and knows how to play the guitar well enough for his own enjoyment.
